3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2014 "Rebel Imported Czech Beer 4.4%" : Aroma; spicy hops, malts, bread, wort, herbs, faint hint of butyric.
Bright pearl white small head diminishes, clear medium golden body.
Taste; malts, hops and grains, bread, wort, grass, notes of butter stuff, faint hint of caramel elements, tiny butterscotch.
Pearly-grainy to palate, easy to drink. Distinct carbonation.
Finishes to the caramel-toffee side with some pearling hops under, making a bittersweet touch to it.
Overall nice to drink, a little organic spicy feel from this pilsener, good beer, and czech style is present.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from supermarket in Kotka, labelled as "Rebel Czech beer", abv 4.4%. Clear darkish yellow colour, large mostly lasting frothy white head, fair lacing. Aroma of hay, floral hops, butter and light bread. Taste is initially bittersweet and moderately acidic, turning into a fairly long moderately bitter and astringent finish with some sweetness and acidity remaining. Medium body, dry mouthfeel that tuns watery when the carbonation decreases, lively carbonation. Otherwise a not very interesting albeit decent Czech pils, but the finish was actually one of the better ones I’ve come across in a while and only in a handful of pilsners ever.

Bottle to pint. Looks decent; a transparent gold with foamy white head and lively carbonation. Smells doughy and unaversively skunky with mild hop notes. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Better than its mean indicates IMO.

Highly disappointing. I made two mistakes: One, I bought this beer. Two, I saved it for my last beer of the evening. Recommended you avoid this brew.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden colour, fine pored white head.
Easy malty aroma ruled by honey underpainted by grassy hops.
Rather malty finish, too, escorted by mild hops.

Pale gold. Fruity aroma with light bitterness. Easy on the palate but feels heavy on carbonation.

Pours light golden out of bottle, very little white head....don’t judge a book by its cover...looks a lot better than it tastes. Not much of an aroma..and the flavor? Tastes metallic and not at all pleasing...

Bottle from Spec's. Light pour with a small white head. Aroma pretty faint, but off. Taste is grainy and sour? Bad finish.

Bottle thanks to Fratto. Golden color with a thin white head. Smells a little sour. Very carbonated, leaves a little flavor to be desired.
