3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample @ Stockholm Beer & Whiskey Festival
Very nice lager with great mouthfeel, the only funky part of it is that it’s taste like nachos, but in a good way. It’s a beer i would like to have more often than having a sample in a stressful festival.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample @ SBWF on September 29. Pours cloudy yellow with a rather small white head. Smell reminds me of a hefeweissen. There’s yeast, coriander and a fresh sweetness. Taste is malty with hints of butterscotch. It has a nice and balanced hoppy bitterness to it. A great lager. Pity this isn’t the Urquell that’s widely distributed.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught from the cask at the brewery tour:
Big vast white head on top of a deep hazy yellow colored beer.
Smell wild yeast, light sour, yeast, bit like champagne, hints of hops.
Taste is a soft smooth balanced mix of hops, yeast, smooth bitterness, a slight hint of something acidic/sour, some herbs/spices but smooth.
Light fruity yeasty bitter aftertaste.
Low carbo, medium to a bit fuller body, soft mouthfeel and a creamy texture.
Had this again in Na Parkanu but you could taste it was less fresher.
Best is directly from the cask. Divine!

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
tap straight from oak cask on brewery tour. calm bright orange pour with a large frothy white head. aroma of bright lemon kissed dough with a pleasant musty basement funk. almost berlinerweisselike nose. quite enjoyable old wood rustic wort character. low carbonation. awesome. complex. beautifully made. complex, clean, rustic lemon grass, citrus layored with dry musty cellar cobweb funk. beautiful old barrel character for kicks. yeast character somewhat reminicent of RR temptation. but overall, quite the unique, well made, awesome beer. would love to see more beers like this, if possible. 10.5.9.4.18
unfiltered tap offering at na parkanu, though not from the oak barrel. missing oaky citrus, lemon of barrel version. more creamy, dry doughy grassy bread. more carbonation than wood version. more doughy. better mouthfeel. thicker. 858517
nod to the wood barrel brewery tour version, though both are excellent.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is still my favorite Bohemian style pilsner as of 6-5-11. It pours golden yellow with a nice and foamy yellow head. It smells of citrus, malt, hops, and floral. It tastes fresh with a good balance of bitterness and malt sweetness. The hop bitterness is the primary flavor and is very refreshing. This is the oldest pilsner in the world and pilsner is named for the town, Pilz, it is brewed in. I love this beer alot. It is smooth and thin on the palaette and is good on a hot day or to complement good foods.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Direct from the barrel at the brewery (and also on tap at Na Parkanu). Pours cloudy amber with a very large foamy white head. Nose; malt, bread, yeast, hay, farmyard. Taste; smooth velvety mouth-feel, lemon, orange, hay, bread, crisp, with a long refreshing bitter finish. Surely the best of its style.
