1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap. Golden color with a huge creamy head. Caramel, butter and some hops.
The beer was a disappointment in terms of taste, it felt a bit unbalanced.
There was something in the taste that I could not quite put my finger on. Thin and watery not particularly exciting.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
It poured a clear golden liquid with a big white foam that quickly dissapeared and left no lacing. It had a weak smell of malt and honey. It tasted of honey, malt, a hint of puke and also a very odd taste. Very watery and a light body. Stingy mouthfeel. No this definitely wasn’t a beer for me. I ended up pouring it down the sink and that is quite unnusual for me.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Looks nice and golden when it pour. White head that doesn’t last. Fresh, hoppy smell with some malty notes in it. Taste is bitter and full. Lots of caramelly malt along with some honeylike sweetness that makes up for the bitterness in a good way. Both malt and hops lingers in the mouth.

Bottled 500ml. -Clear golden coloured, medium to big white head, pleasant hoppy nose. Moderate malty, hoppy and grainy with notes of herbs. Rather bitter finish. Very good Boh. pils and the best Czech beer I’ve tried on Rujanfest.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle at the Beershop tent at the Rujanfest in Zagreb. (thanks!)
A very pleasant surprise at the end of one extensive rating day. Poured a golden body with a big thick chalky white head. Flowery nose with some herbal hoppy notes (Saaz?). Sweet but not excessively so nice grainy malty taste with some fine herbal hopiness. Wasn’t able to go into details but this was definitely the tastiest beer I’ve had that day.

Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2009. Pale golden color, small head. Malty aroma with some vegetables. Alcohol flavor, not the way I want a czech pilsener to be.
