Grainy, Samiclaus aroma. Clear straw under bubbly white foam. Very strong and warm grain flavour with some nuttiness. Low in the hops and bitterness categories. Almost a bit like white wine. Chewy and sweet with a bit of warm ethanol.

Bottle on the bus of banter. Alround rating: An interesting rating here. "One should not teabag a badger" The banter on the bus must have been strong indeed.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On the bus between Klatovy and Dobrany, I think Fil got these for us (thanks!)
Poured an orangey amber gold colour with some lively carbonation and a small white head. A heavy malty/grainy nose with some alcohol present. A flowery malty taste, somewhat sticky, notes of alcohol and apple, weak weak grassy hops. More drinkable than expected and I’ve certainly had worse but still far from a good beer.
