4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Swing top bottle bought @ U Medvidku. Pours tangerine gold w/ cm thick head which sticks around and some minimal lacing. Predominant aroma is honeydew melon, slightly saccharine, like cotton candy, and faint flowery hops. Rather solid mouthfeel, w/ upfront malts leading to dry, pilsnerish finish, mild yeastiness, leafy hops melding smoothly. Quite lovely and unique, made by my favorite Czech pivovar.

Swingtop courtesy of Ma and Pa Jenner, with accompanying t-shirt. Ruddy amber pour with a slight haze. Intensely rich, buttery caramel malty aroma with a faintly strawberryish hop background. Sickly at first, but a velvety grower. Soap, butter and caramel. A lick of twiglety yeast. Soapily bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Buttery aftertaste. Not really a fan of the style, but enjoyed this.

Nice hazy amber coloured, lasting thick creamy head. Pleasant mild roasted malty, hoppy and slight yeasty aroma but a way too watery. Dry bitterish finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap at the brewpub, served in a soccerball-shaped beerglass with a huge muffin top head. amber, faintly hazy. aroma of various types of melon. a bit of a hit of alcohol, compost (but in a good way), light and dry bitterness. not way exciting but very drinkable. suffered a bit in comparison with the unfiltered budvar that they also have on tap there.
