Continuing my escapade into boring Czech lagers, this one’s, well, in the middle as well. Blah, I say. It’s a boring weak lager with hops notes, sad for the rest of us. I’m surprised I even remembered to write it down in my phone rather than fall asleep from boredom due to drinking this. The pickle plate was nice, however.
