3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Solid yellow colour. Strong aroma out of the bottle, died off quickly. Slightly cloudy. Light head. Creamy feel. Very light aftertaste. Light hops and citrus notes. Good mainstream beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
An extremely bready, Eastern European aroma and flavor that’s heavy on the malt and the hops are virtually non-existent. A bit sweet and very interesting. Has a lot of the Czech malt flavor I love.

Apperance: Cloudy golden, dense white head that dissapates quickly.
Flavour: weak malt and weaker hop (saaz?) character.
Mouthfeel: Average mouthfeel for lager, at best

definitely not a lasting head! pale golden, fairly thin body and watery. got a slight hint of hops, otherwise this beer had nothing to offer me.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Interesting. Quite an indescribable un-lagery flavor, reminding me perhaps of a lighter blond ale. Bitterness around the edges of my tongue. Tastes like maybe it’s more than 5%. Classic lager appearance, pale gold with a magnificent pile of head that unfortunately dissipates rapidly (but not completely.) And another Cyrillic label for the collection.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice head, but of a skunky smell. Smooth flavor with very little after taste. Nice and smooth, but nothing particularly notable.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dry taste with a subtle hint of hops. Actually a good beer with foods. Very satisfying on a HOT day!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
very tasty brew with a subtle ’dry’ taste that is an excelletn accompaniment for seafood & fowl. Good with pizza as well. Good color & body.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
big head that dissapates quickly and leaves little ’head-islands’ floating at the top. very slight hops, and there was a kind of sourness that was not unpleasant.
