From tap @Hostinec Richtar Jakub, Bratislava. Tall white foamy head. Foggy straw yellow body. Dryish light doughy and bready malt aroma. Some refreshing lemon tones. Light-bodied and soft in the mouth. Crisp semi-dry malt flavor. Mild and gentle fruity bitterness. Very well balanced. Subtle and elegant. [13.04.13]

My Bottom Line:
This amazingly drinkable Svetly Vycepni develops spicy hop flavors and delicate hay and honeyed malts in an ever-so-cushiony mouthfeel made for endless sessions or refined food pairings. A masterpiece.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sturdy cake icing-like head of foam rests atop the perfect golden shine.
-Execution is superb ; every flavor is clearly expressed and of the same moderate intensity.
-Mouthfeel is unbelievably engaging. Pillowy AND quenching. A rare treat.
-This is not the kind of brew which will wow people for its intensity, or for its unique profile. It is simply the quintessence of Svetly Vycepni. Pure and honest ingredients in the cushiest of mouthfeels.
On tap at Nota Bene, Praha.

On tap at Nota Bene restaurant (01/03/13 & 08/03/13). Pale clear gold pour with rocky white head that wants to climb out of the glass. Really balanced aroma, just the right touch of grassy saaz, light honey graininess, just a drop of honey. Palate is bone dry but remains smooth, not too prickly. Style defining beer, second only to Harrachs and definitely world class.

Keg at Vzorkovna. Clear Gold with a thick white head. Nice hoppy nose. Light caramel and lovely bitterness. I’d love to try the unfiltered version of this.

Postupně sem budu doplňopvat piva, co jsem vypil a zapsal si, chvilku to asi bude trvat a proto k těm dříve vypitým pivům nebudou žádné "dojmy" .

A lovely golden colour, with some head. Smells of malts, grassy notes and some hops. Taste is full and quite hoppy for a czech beer. Well balanced and rounded, very drinkable.
