2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap, Pivovarsky Klub. Serious body, alcohol and bitterness nudging towards Tripel territory. Soapy citrus with stale papery backtaste. A late flourish of biscuit. Long malty afters, faint glow, wood and vomit in aroma. Intense peaty/whiskeyish notes developing as it warms..not quite as bad as it sounds.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sharp, spicy, green hops linger over the strong fruity esters in the nose. Brilliantly clear golden body is topped by a densely packed, fine bubbled white head that recedes very slowly to cover. Hop bitterness is sharp up front, followed by mellow round fruitiness and grassy hop flavours notable especially in the aftertaste. Alcohol is occasionally apparent. There’s an underlying cloying sweetness that while masked by the bitterness is continually present in the aftertaste that I don’t find enjoyable. Medium light body has very strong, pointy carbonation that prickles the tongue and cheeks. Tulip glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (Brewery Creek, Sep-07),

Bottled@Hostina, Helsinki (rating #4000). Amberish orange colour, white head. Aroma is alcohol and some malts and hops. Quite sweet with some bready hints also. Flavour is very much the same, with the breadyness toned down. As it gets warmer a lot of fruity notes become present.

Dark gold colour. Aroma of Lublin or Saaz, alcohol, big bready malt, hints of caramel. Nice thick head. Firm character balanced very evenly between bread, caramel, toasty, hop, wood and alcohol with a hint of chocolate chip for good measure. Nicely done!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
golden yellow, decent head. Strange smell, but tastes all right. Sweet flavour, very malty with hints of roasted malt. There is a hoppy bitter flavour as well, which produces an interesting contrast.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Quite a fruity aroma slightly citric and with the generic fruit found in a few Polish lagers but not so often in the cleaner Czech examples. There is also some fairly pleasant hop and malt lurking around here. On the whole a bit sweet and sugary but fairly pleasant.

0.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle: Poured slightly hazy and with little head or lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and herbal hops, some bready and caramel malt, and noticeable phenols. The taste is not any better with a confusing blend of sweet malt, alcohol and veggies. The after taste is plastic and medicinal. Mouth feel is gummy and pasty. AWFUL CRAP and drain pour!
