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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 l bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks a lot for sharing! This poured pale golden body with tiny head, clear without much carbonation. Fine aroma of some lemon, pear and grass hoppiness, spiced with its honey malty component. Flavor also very fine, slightly bitter, relatively full bodied and enjoyable. Bittersweet finish, which is not so good as the flavor could make it, but still nice. Definitely a decent Czech pilsener.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Golden with an OK head. The aroma has notes of malt and slightly perfumed hops. The flavour is sweetish with notes of malt, hints of fruit and grapefruit in the finish, that has an OK bitterness.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Absolutely clear yellow. Very active rising carbonation up to a strong white head with thick lacing. Nose is light apple juice and grains. Not very flavorful, a touch of sourness in the finish. Sharp palate with a thin finish.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can. Clear, maybe a bit pale golden, with a decent, white head. The nose is quite weak, flowerey and a fruityness leading my thoughts to yellow apples. Some malt, fruityness and some hoppy bitterness, the hops being most evident towards the finish. Medium body, quite crisp. A refreshing beer, unfortunately dead boring. (070815)
