2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Tesco. Typical Czech colouring with a frothy white head that resolves to a thin film. Slightly grassy hop aroma with malt predominating. Mostly malt in taste with hoppy overtones. Crisp finish. Perfectly acceptable beer, if nothing special. Retails at Tesco for 99 pence a bottle which is unbelievable value. One for the discerning cheapskate.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle brown, 500 ml
Appearance: Pours pure and pale golden body with off - white, dense, slowly decreasing, even a bit rocky head. Carbonation of body is mild to mdium. Head gives some lacing being quite good as for Pale Lager. it reminds me typical Bohemian Pilsener style from its appearance not a Pale Lager as it’s categorized.
Aroma: Very gentle, first like mineral and graphite with some hints of chalkyness, slightly citrusy and lemon like, but very faint, alcohol is very well hidden, generally weak aroma, some maltyness and honey at the background.
Flavour: Fresh, refrashing, sweet and bitter on the tongue in a gentle manner, grainy, thin,weak, some strange hints of fish, but all in all not disturbing, bit thin but quite decent, juicy. Finish duration is medium.
Palate: Palate is interesting, fresh hoppy nose, bitterness on palate, grainy - malty sweetness, finish feel is grainy, very nice and interesting, like of good Pilsener not a Pale Lager.
