1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can, 500 ml
Appearance: Pours deep and essential assertive golden shiny body colour with perfectly clear texture, carbonation of the body is very mild and gentle, head is initially rather small and very slowly decreasing to a bit smaller but firm and lasting, white in colour, frothy in texture.
Aroma: Some gentle notes of hops with herbal accents, flat maltyness of body is present underneath from the body deepness, quite clean and very faint non - intensive and natural aroma of a good quality Pilsener. A bit milky or creamy. Alcohol is quite hidden.
Flavour: Front is with an influence of alcohol that seems for me a bit too strong as for Bohemian Pilsener, grainy - malty taste dominates over the hoppyness, slightly oily and alcoholic - malty oriented. Finish duration is short. Finish is strong and alcoholic, far too much as for only 5% abv. ’Brewer 7% abv’ is far less alcoholic than that one, I was expecting something better from Czech brewing traditions. It tastes like mass Euro Strong Lager not like a Bohemian Pilsener.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is almost oily, carbonation on palate is soft, finish feel is nasty with unpleasant impression in your mouth, neutral and kind of sour, beer becomes heavy alcoholic and taste like Malt Liquor at finish, reminding a poor plonk. Isn’t it a Malt Liquor? C’mon! Don’t buy it! Nasty!
