Can. Pale gold with big white head. Average strong blend of sweet malts and hops. Aroma very typical. Light grainy finish. Body felt a bit on thinner side but strong grainy character was kept. Some fruity feel as well. Gentle hoppy end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2008 Draught at Branicky Sklipek in Prague.
Served in a small 30 cl or a big 50 cl glass (by chice).
Light yellow color, small white head. Not much scent, but might be due to the extremely smokey environment. Big body, clear diacetyl/butterscotch flavor. Medium bitterness. Very refreshing, but not a lot of taste other than the butterscotch.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled German version. Clear golden color, disintegrating head reduces to nothing. Doesn’t smell like something I’d want to drink. Industirally malty aroma, medium carbonation, a tad tinny, cereal used? Soft mouthfeel, low bitterness, czech hops. Off-kilter balance, to be avoided.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big, creamy white head over clear yellow body. Faint, clear, acidic aroma. Clean, light bitter taste with a dry finish. Clearly well made, but doesn’t really taste anything much. (On tap.)

Bottle, Brought back from Germany by my brother. 500 ml, 5% a/v.
Medium sized dense off white head. Pours a beautiful gold colour! Smells of citrus and slightly grainy. Tastes hoppy with hints at a fruity taste. Finish is also hoppy. All in all a very nice crisp beer!

Bond beer with a small head. Light hop aroma. This is a very straight forward lager. Ok, but nothing special. There is a light bitter aftertaste.
