Bottle @ Pivni Rozmanitost, Prague. Pours clear dark golden with a white head. Malty bready. Cereal. Mild grassy hops and grain. Smooth and dry. I have no doubts about this being greater when fresher.

500ml. Bottle from Bottle Shop Canterbury. Golden beer. Lasting white head. Yes its a lager but soft in mouth great cereal flavour. Lovely drop of hop on the finish. Its pretty intense and pretty lovely to be honest. Very good. Tasty as hell

Draught at Annafest09. OK malty flavour. Hazy dark golden colour, it seems in the mug. Small semi-stable tan head. Malty flavour, a bit of paper. Semi-sweet. Not bad.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ceramic mug. Big medicinal hop aroma. Herbal, hoppy character (it is St. Georgen after all) with light malt backdrop. Dry, hoppy finish. Slight malt toastiness adds a "fest" accent.

Tap. Golden with no head. Weak aroma. Taste is malty with mild hoppiness. Kinda boring.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: deep golden coloured, thin lacing head; honey and "english" hops in the nose; strong sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; finish starts sweet-malty, becomes very quickly dry and enormous hoppy and resinous towards the end. A devilishly moreish and tasty beer. Top quality by St. Georgen, as usual...........

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle, a “Mitbringsel” from pivnizub – thanks !) Clear, deep golden colour with short creamy, slightly off-white head. Dry-ish malty and woody, herbal hoppy aroma. Bittersweet flavour, medium body, soft carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Well balanced slightly toasty, honeyish maltiness and an aromatic woody hoppy note; resinous dry and bitter herbal hoppy finish. Unusual dry and quite bitter Festbier. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark gold beer; collapsing medium off-white head. Grass, malt with also some darker coloured malts, malt-syrup-like. Very nice, hoppy taste, near American hops: slightly citrussy, or vineleaf flavours. Upon a good malty base, but I seem to get some rice-like flavour. Can’t be no (joke!)? Alcohol somewhere retronasal. Certain grist slickness, nice medium body, light alcoholwarming. I love this hoppiness - remarkably close to some American hops, terribly difficult with German ones. It’s even better on draught, I know...
