3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to quack-duck for that one. Bottle looks simple but good, beer in the glass not too zippy, small head. Starts strong but not alcoholic, fine malty and spicy. A bit soapy and metallically. Finish more balanced, spicy, quite drinkable. Nice!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
2012 edition - 0,5l bottles made for the occasion of 20th "mezinárodní dudácký festival".
Clear golden colour, slightly to amber. Head is rather small, white, quickly disappearing. Aroma quite mild, caramel, very light cappuccino notes. Almost no hops aroma. Taste is almost medium sweet, malty, no particular flavour coming into mind, light bitter. Mild caramel and cappuccino notes. Finish is rather dry and bitter. Shortage of hops overall.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
30/10 A 0.33 l bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing! It poured golden body with smaller head. Weak grainy, egg and vegetables aroma. Crap. Flavor is much better, I liked its fine sweetish honey malt profile. Medium bodied with medium long sweetish finish. It can’t be an ESL, too weak for it, but it’s quite fine beer, although nothing special and as such easily forgettable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle probably from the Pivovarsky Klub in Prague, shared with heavy and ogivlado.
Poured a full golden body with a medium sized white head that actually stuck a little. Yoghurty grainy malty nose, damn nice. The taste is nice, more of the same yoghurty graininess, very light herbal bitterness. Finishing quite nicely, a light and balanced beer, could go for more of these. With more hops this might’ve been wonderful I reckon, but even like this it’s better than most you can get like this, even in the Czech Republic.
