Pours a hazy orange color, topped with a big white head and medium retention. Mild grassy nose with a bit of cellar presence. Sweet malty start with little grassiness in the body. Nothing extra, a bit cellar feel to it. Ok.

11/VII/15 - on tap @ U Kuděje (Olomouc) - BB: n/a (2015-911)
Note: not entirely sure I had the unfiltered, but given the reputation of the bar, to choose for very local breweries above those further away and unfiltered over filtered, I guess the beer would have to meet at least one criterium to get in, and it’s not being very close to the bar. So... Feel free to contact me if I’m wrong, I’ll move the rating then.
Clear pale blond beer, nice creamy solid white head, very stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: malty, bit sweet, cow fodder, grains. MF: ok carbon, medium body, smooth texture. Taste: pretty fruity, sweet malts, some citrus, bit cheesy, dairy, some fried onions. Aftertaste: sweet, banana, soft bitterness, grassy, some caramel.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2014 Multiple glasses at Vegas Club in Brno and later at Pivnice U Poutníka. Hazed gold body with a perfectly fine and stiff white head. First whiff is "oh snap". As in ridiculously snappy hops and snappy malt: warm buttered biscuits, dried grass, lemon-oil, cheesy must and bread dough from the krausening, but the fermentation is clean and defect-free, Fucking A... Bright, zesty, prickly, buzzing hop acidity exploded by the savory Moravian malt. The bitterness is beyond excessive for Czech tastes, no doubt. Shame because this is what Modern Svetly should be. It’s a punch in the face by Saaz hops, and in the mouth the creaminess and softness is beyond worlds. The thought of this beer makes me drool. Of course this is an emotional response to a memory, and memories are never recalled as they were, as a rule they never are. The act of remembering a memory alters the memory, even immediately after the experience. Yeah this is some. Kept me up drinking until 4 in the morning at a pub that should have closed at midnight. Up until this point I considered the Únětické 12° the best of the trip, but now I’d have to say this is the finest beer to seek out traveling Czech Republic, in my very subjective and humble opinion.
