Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 20, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 0,5l bottle from Czech Republic. Clear, golden colored beer with medium, pillowy, durable, white head. Refreshing, spicy, herbal aroma with a little fruit and honey flavour. Medium bitter taste with some sweetness. Creamy texture, light to medium body, lively carbonation. Spicy, fruity finish. Unique and delicious hop aroma among the Pilsners. It’s almost like an IPA. Very delicious, well hopped Pilsner. Previous rate: 4/20/2012 - points: 6-3-6-3-16 On tap at Csakajósör, Budapest. Clear, pale golden color with medium, white head. Sour-sweet malty aroma - it’s a bit like other Bohemian Pilners (for example: Cerna Hora), but sweeter. Some spicy saaz hops flavour also appears. Light sweet taste with some sourness of the malt. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The spicy hops dominates the aftertaste. It’s a good, delicious Bohemian Pilsner, but sweeter than the usual.

suprchunk (2452) - Crestview, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2012
Clear golden/straw colored pour. Small white head that fades fast and leaves plenty of splotchy lacing. A corn, pepper, coriander aroma. Crisp and punchy. A sweet spicy flavor with hints of coriander. A slight peppery spiciness in the back. A little of the corn aroma comes in with the start of each sip, but is not in the middle or back. A little bitterness, but not much. Nice beer.
