2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hm, not sure about this one. The blackboard claims that this is the nefiltrovaný, but to me it’s not very different from the regular Urquell. Due to language difficulties I didn’t bother asking the staff to clarify. It pours a slightly hazy (so, nefiltrovaný after all?), golden body, with a white, long-lived head. Moderate aroma of pale malts, noble hops and light caramel, quite like any other high-quality pilsner. Moderate flavour that follows the aroma, with additional citric hints. Light sweet taste with a moderate bitter finish. Mid-bodied, dry and with a moderate carbonation. A nice pilsner, but nothing special.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
NaPa. Full, rich, really rewarding on the palate. Big hops (especially from the cellar), caramel, lengthy body. Really demands repeat drinks. Just a great beer, with a great history from a great little town.

Nice aroma, but what’s really nice is the taste. Really nice pilsner taste good bitterness and dryness and citrus.
