3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Actually brewed at Hotel Pivovarská Bašta in Vrchlabí Small, relatively stable amberish head over orange-amber beer. End of bottle solid yeast. Very flowery nose, roses, lilies, further dry grass as well as sweet caramel. Bitter, flowery, spiced citrus flavours, slightly resiny. No hints at sweetness in the flavour, yet not unbalanced. Retronasal pure hopoil. Medium bodied, quite slick, faintly oily. Nice, and rather original APA. Not too strong, balanced, easily drinkable. Good work, Honza!

bottle from Pivní Rozmanitosts stall at Prague Easter Market, in front of Kotva. Hazy golden-brown colour, small off-white head. Intensive hop aroma, almost IPA-like. Rather light bodied with a shy malty background, intensive hops all over the tongue: grassy, herbal, resiny and very slightly citrusy. Smooth palate. Delicious!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottled, picked up by mowbeer at pivni rozmanitost (thanks mate). pale amber with no real sign of haze and a persistent haze; simple but pleasant aroma of grapefruit and pine with a touch of lemonade flavoured ice block; plenty of tinny bitterness with some lychee and lemon zest in the background and a bit of butterscotch. no real flaws but somehow lacking in any stand-out character
