3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2006 Bottle. Clear golden color. Aroma is light and flowery. Taste is as you would expect. It’s a pilsner, thus not very interesting, but it goes down smooth. Decent light beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pillowy white head over a golden beer. Thick lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is mostly floral hops but seems slightly metallic. Some faint malt underneath that. Taste does not seem well-balanced to me. It is crisp enough, mildly fruity and would definately be welcome on a hot day, but otherwise nothing spectacular.

I cannot seem to get this one (and not for lack of effort) when it is fresh. Every one I have had was skunky smelling with accompanying bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured with a big white foamy head, nice looking golden beer. Yeasty bread odor with sweet, mild fruity apple-cider smell. Smells refreshing. This 6-pack is not overly fresh. =\ Bitter, dry, good hop presence, some skunk(freshness issue) and a nice, mild apple//pear, lightly malty aftertaste while maintaining the bitterness. Overall very refreshing: nice dry, bitter flavor with fruit for a very pleasant beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright gold color. White head. Strong spicy aroma very distinct. I don't find it as bitter as some seem too. A nice change from average pils but not as good as I hoped for.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 This pours a pure gold color with a medium white head. The lacing is average. The nose is clean and a bit hoppy and sweet. The bitterness comes first with a light acidicity. There’s mostly malts, banana sweetness, and peppery bitterness. This is a very clean, nice changeup.

Light bitter pilsner. Very Mild. You can easily get very hammered sitting in Praha on this beer ;D

Formula 409. How is it that I've had some beers SO many times and never rated them? I would feel much worse for not really commenting so much on the beer itself (which I like) but I have looked in the past at all the ratings by the BIG PEOPLE that have NO comments at all. Formula 409
