2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, 500mL. Nose is very sweet, sugary really, pale malt is bright but grainy, lemony and faint green hops, but I can’t say I expect anything but a rough ride. Pours golden with a rocky-sudsy white head. Taste is as expected: low bitterness, strong sugary sweetness, grainy, lightly metallic, raw all over. Reasonable balance of malt and hops but the decision probably lands in the corner of the former. Light diacetyl in with some toffee. Mild lemon and grass. Light body somewhat refreshing, not enough to overcome the traditional central European rough lager character (by no means exclusive to Bohemia).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Review from notes on 06/1/10
Poured from bottle to perfect pint.
A: Straw, amazing clarity. Steady stream of lager bubble. No head. Granular yeast suspension noted in bottle.
S: Petite nose. Early hop additions give this a simple, grassy, bitter scent. Touch of grain.
T: Effervescent malt, slightly vanilla flavor. Good, easy finish. Great dinner beer.
M: Light, smooth lager. Easy carb, not offensive at all.
D: Best Czech lager I’ve had so far. Very drinkable. I would argue a win-win for anybody who enjoys lagers, and especially for a domestic macro drinker.
