2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Grainy aromas, and a touch skunky. Perhaps not the freshest bottle. Flavour was slightly better than expected. Some sweet grainy malt with a light hoppy character. Light carbonation. Better than some of its competition, but still not great

Tap at the Prague Beer Museum at Náměstí Míru Prague. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is light zesty citrus. The flavour is medium bitter with a light fruity hop light spice pepper palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Really liked this one. Loved the fruit hop combo with a spicy kick in the tail.

Large PET bottle thanks to Bruce. It pours hazy golden-yellow with a small white head. The nose is doughy, buttered toast, grass, straw and white bread. The taste is crisp, grassy, straw, peppery, good bitterness, straw and mild astringency with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Crisp and pretty drinkable. Alright but doesn’t excite me.

1,5 liters flaske delt med Ovesen tilbake fra Tsjekkia for 4 timer siden: iflg etiketten er voltstyrken pĺ 5,1. Ufiltrert men allikevelmutseende som ufiltrert. Humlebitterheten har mer grapefrukt enn appelsin (som Benedict vi hadde fřrst). Ellers samme hovedinntrykk: det er fřrst nĺr du har smakt en fersk tsjekkisk pilsner du kjenner hvilken fantastisk god og lettdrikkelig stilart dette er. En grensesettende řlopplevelse.
