4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy dark amber color with medium and creamy slightly off-white head. Lovely smell of caramel and toffee.
Full body with medium carbonation. Smooth and oily texture. Taste is bittersweet, with bitterness present mostly in the aftertaste, probably due to alcohol. Aroma of toffee, caramel, bread, biscuits. Very rich and tasty.
Overall, loved it. This was sampled from the new 0.33l bottle and it feels like an improvement over the old 0.5l Grička. Excellent.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours muddy redish light brown color, with tiny foamy, unstable white head, which inmediately transform to a ring around the glass. Visualy mild low carbonation, with small mild slow up rising bubbles.
Aroma is the worst part of this beer: actually hard detectable, with hints of biscuit and peaches, but without note of an alcohol.
Flavor is much better: alcohol is hidden, prevails sweet malty notes of wheat, hints of caramel, and peaches.
Malt sweetness is medium, hop bitterness is mild, body is sticky, finish is dry.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Medium-big cremy head. Hazy. Reddish-brown color. Generally, looks nice. In nose mostly malt with some notes of oranges and caramel. But intensity of aroma is, actualy, pretty low. In flavor again malts and yeast with some grassy, bitterbnotes at the finish. Balanced. Maybe, too balanced for bock (too hoppy for a style). Which is fine with me. Medium-full body. Overall: nice one, but with some complexity it would be great.
