(6/27/08) Bottle outside Vinarna Hrozen in Plzen. As Branik Svetly. Clear golden with a big white head. Aroma of malt and faint grassy hoppy notes. Flavor starts slightly sweetish and has light bitterness in the finish. Quite watery. I’m indifferent.

Bottled (BB 09/2008)
Golden color, good white head. Aroma of metal and boiled vegetables. Reasonably malty light lager, but not much hops found. Short, harsh finish. Cheap bottle from Tesco, less than 10 Korunas.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle brown, 500 ml, 10P
Appearance: Pours bright, well filtered, but not perfectly clear (some strange sediment is floating in the body texture), yellowish to very bright golden body, carbonation of body is visually weak, head is white, foamy - rocky, rather weak and thin, quite quickly decreasing, giving no lacing, generally body colour looks like they added some extra corn.
Aroma: Aroma is much more pronounced than those of ’Vratislav’, citrusy freshness is on the top and somehow lower, when you sniff deeper, you can feel nice Moravian - grainy malty base. More pronounced, but looks real deepness or complexity, slightly grassy hoppyness.
Flavour: Front is sweet and mineral from quite considerable carbonation content, than when the beer gets through your mouth you can feel some rustyness and slight citrusy - hoppy freshness. Than when the gets warmer you feel grainy - Moravian malts, sweetness, becoming more present and very gentle citrusy hoppy nose with some slight perfume notes. Nice balance between sweetness and bitterness at finish.
Palate: Body is light, texture is wattery, carbonation is medium on palate, finish feel is grainy, malty with aromatic hoppy nose on the top.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle from Tesco, Plzen. Paleish gold with thin white head. NO great aroma. Again like a lot of these beers, it’s fine, no bad flavours, only a bit of cardboard. Thinner than some others in the mouth though. Some lemon hop on finish. It’s not bad, just a little uninteresting. OK lager.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l bottle, courtesy of an acquaintance who brought it from Prague (thanks Tomislav!), shared with heavy.
Poured a dull and pale golden colour with a small thick white head that went away very fast. The nose was weak, but a nice grainy maltiness is present and some hops. mineral water like bite. Hoppy bitterness surrounding a nice , if weak biscuity/fruity maltiness... somewhat herbal-spicy. Somewhat odd but drinkable.
