1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle (bought and consumed at the brewpub Nov 07, BB 12/07).
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium to dark amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, caramel), with a note of vinegar.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation.
Unbelievably bad. Here’s the story. First they brought me the wrong thing, a mug of draught Budvar. Took 10-15 minutes to get them to take that off the table and bring the Medvicku bottle. Poured it and bang, instant whiff of vinegar. Got the waiter over (who at this point was probably already irritated) and asked if it smelled normal to him. He actually drank some out of my glass, said it was fine. He got his manager to come over, also said it was fine. Ok, ok, it’s fine, I’m sorry. Vinegar is normal for this beer apparently. I didn’t drink more than a few sips, paid, and bought the X33 from the desk on the way out...and found it was almost as terrible when I got back to the hotel. Sure, it’s possible I lucked upon two bad batches of two different beers, but I still don’t like those odds.

Draught at U Medvidku. Hazy brown with a big beige head. Sweet toffee aroma. Sweet, toasty, toffee, and caramel flavor. Medium body with low carbonation. Very pleasant overall, but The brewpub kinda sucked.

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.
