3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the Eurostash tasting on 04/30/09: Bottle from the brewpub. The beer pours a cloudy yellow color with a huge fizzy white head that burns away slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma is equally hoppy and malty. Medium body with very lively carbonation that is almost like drinking foam, even after it settles for awhile. Flavors of grassy hops and sweet malt are fairly evenly balanced. The finish is mildly hoppy and lingers a bit. Slightly above average overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ Novomestsky Pivovar, Prague.
Pours hazy, deep, golden amber with a great, big, creamy, slightly off-white had. Aroma is sweet, light toffee, some slight grass and flowers. Okay mouthfeel, low carbonation. Flavour has a good deal of butter, but it doesn’t seem as out of place as in other Bohemian Pilsners. Light citric and grassy hops mix with a caramel note at the finish. Which is also slightly hoppy dry.
