2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle in Kotor, Montenegro. Dark gold with tight, dense, white head. Aroma is very clean, as are the flavors. The hopping is earthy, and peppery but dull, and the malts are straightforward, certainly not sweet, but unexciting. I like that it’s dry, and I like that the body is sturdy. It’s not swill. I have a feeling when this is fresh out of the brewing kettle, it is better. Uninspired but solid.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 0,50L. Dark golden colour with average big, creamy, white head. I expected skunky aroma, as it is in the green bottle, but was a bit suprised, because it wasn’t. There is aroma of dark bread, cardboard, some smoked malts and a note of wood. Light sweet at the begining with caramel note and light to moderate bitter finish. Light to medium body, dry but watery texture and lively carbonation. Not something special, but defintley step away from regular Staropramen, although I didn’t expected it...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a medium frothy white head. Malty aroma, grainy as well. Taste is sweet and malty, slightly but still, some minimal bitterness in the finish. Not the best example of a pilsener, but still drinkable.

Very bad pilsner. Kitty, because in the time of communism I remember how good it was. Disgusting if it is not very cold, Disappointment with some bad taste and aroma, ordinary look, bad top, etc. I even think it was better few years ago, but now...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can 500ml (ABV 4.7%, brewed by Staropramen Breweries, Prague)
Deep golden color, mostly vanishing white head. Malty, slightly grainy and metallic aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Malty flavor with light sweetish finish. Bohemian hops are not very strong but decent bitterness. More on metallic than typical buttery Czech flavor, but clean and malty enough to be tolerable pils.
