2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
White golden to straw yellow clear beer with big white head leaving lacing. Aroma has strong buttery and rubbery diacetyl, grassy and herbal hops and some pale malts. Flavor is slightly honeyish sweet and malty with grassiness on the side. Slightly metallic as well. Thin palate, watery at times, high carbonation. Finishes with quite mild bitterness which lingers in the mouth for a while. A decent basic Czech lager, kind of midway between the hop attack of Urquell and soft maltiness of Budvar.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A golden beer with a medium and white head. The nose of rich malts and grain, some honey and butter, lots of fresh grass. Taste is slightly sweet of malts, the sweetness is decreased by grassy hops, still not dry at all, also dry grain. Medium bodied, nicely smooth to drink. Easy and suave beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, faint butter and light grassy hoppyness. Body is medium, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, light butter, light grassy hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and dryish, light butter with light grassy - herbal hoppyness. OK dryish Czech pils, not too much diacetyl – nothing special though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear deep amber, little sparkling, 2 finger frothy head dissipates too fast leaving bit ugly lacing islands. Sweetish grainy aroma has some butter notes, bit damp cellar and some unspecified fruits, something that seems impure also .Medium body, soft carbonation and round feel, medium long grainy finish with butter and slightly roasted caramel, bit grass. Easy to drink, butterscotch was nice but aroma’s impurities not. Still ok Czech.

Apple juice looking pour mid soapy head that fades. Aroma of barley, grass hops. Barley tea here. Hops are sour and bitter at the same time. A bit of spice. Some beaniness. Thick palate for a lager.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad, a bit sweetish, drinkable, nice strongish hops flavor at first and then goes down smooth with not taste, a slight pleasant bitterness for aftertaste. Not too bad a Czech lager but not the best. I prefer Primator’s 11 degree. 7.9Czk at Kaufland Promotion
