Two bottles at Cafe21 Newcastle. Amber with a dense white head. Quite malty/fruity for a pilsner. Some nuts, cereal, and a slightly doughy flavour as it warms. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation. Just okay.

Dark amber, small off-white head. Aroma is mild slightly flora. A decent amount of malt flavours, slightly woody, floral notes, fruit peel. Not exceptional but pretty good.

Tom303 (112) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 Dark amber, lovely sweet malt and fruity maroma with taste to follow and perfect balance of rich bitter sweet flavours. Quite sweet and fruity for a pilsner, but good balance overall. Really good lager.

AshtonMcCobb (4910) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 20, 2013
50cl bottle thanks to John Brash. Appearance - a darker golden than expected. Decent head retention. Nose - cornflakes with just a hint of green beans. Taste - more green beans and pale malt but just a touch of cardboard, though I’m not sure it’s an off taste. It’s more like a note that culminates from the combination of hops and malt. Palate - light to medium bodied with a long dry finish. Overall - not bad, quite solid really.

It has all the characteristics of a good czech lager. That rich, malty, fruity aroma. The dark gold colour. It packs a hell of a punch on the palate and goes down a treat.

Bottle (500ml from Fenwick, Newcastle, UK):
Hoppy to begin with, there is a definite yeast aroma and some lager malts. There is some background fruits and a fair amount of orange coming through with a little spice thrown in for good measure.
A bright orange tainted amber colour that looks quite lively with plenty of bubbles rising to the surface. There is a foamy white head on top that is about two fingers width tall that manages to stay for a good few minutes then only starts to reduce in size as I start to drink it.
Starting out with slightly too much yeast and floral hops. There is a good citrus flavour in there with some orange and spice. I could also detect some biscuit malts and it is all rounded off with a medium amount of bitter.
Medium in body with a citrus tang around the middle and a bitter finish together with mild carbonation for a pilsner making it probably moderate overall.

I wasn’t a huge fan to begin with but once it settled down I began to enjoy it, although there was an almost skunky flavour lingering on and again throughout that stopped it from scoring higher. Good but not a memorable one or one that I’d seek out again.
