2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from the bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a mostly clear gold-straw color with a modest foamy white head that had short retention, with light lacing and cling. Its aroma featured straw, grassy, and grainy hops, blended with some floral bits, and light barley malt notes. The taste had a crisp bitter grainy-grassy blend with a light sour mash component, a touch of straw, and no sweetness was present. The body was crisp, lively, and fizzy, with good carbonation, and was mostly dry with a thinner body, but still a somewhat thick mouthfeel.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml bottle from Hipercor, Oviedo. 07-04-2014.
In short: a poor lager.
Pours quite clear golden, with nice white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Grainy, malty, corn aromas. Light body, high carbonation crispy texture. Taste follows the nose. Lots of sweet notes. Dull and boring.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a completely clear, golden color and is topped with an average white frothy head that soon disappears almost completely.
The aroma is gentle, although its malty and slightly grainy aroma is still easy to point out.
The taste is exactly what you expect. Sweet start, balanced body and slightly bittery finish. Also slight metal kick in the aftertaste.
A very nice beer that’s easy to drink, but you would expect a bit more form the Czech. Maybe.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Ei mikään kummoinen, mutta pitkän päivän jälkeen ihan toimi. Mauton perusteeksi. Tuomon luona siksi.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark golden color with almost no head on it. Nose has some light corn elements to it. Taste is definitely crisp like a decent lager, and has a lot of grains in there. Nothing terribly interesting, but not bad.

500 ml green bottle, from Alcampo Gran Canaria. ABV is 4.7%. Golden colour, moderate white head. Moderate aroma, hints of grassy hops and dusty malts. Boring flavour, dusty malts and a little grassy hops, but this is not the best from the Czech.
