2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of noble hop and more than expected malt. More of a German pilsener? Slightly orange tinged golden color with a white head that ringed. Medium body with moderate, near creamy, carbonation. Flavor starts sweet, balanced by bitter. I’d say noble hop. Agree it is a bit bready. The finish is lightly sweet, quickly dropping to persisting bitter. Perhaps a slight sour note in the top of the mouth at the end. Good beer, but seems a whit more German than Bohemian.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep gold body with a large off white head. The aroma has some nice notes of bread and earthy root vegetables like turnips. The taste is a little sharp with hints of raw potatoes and some apple core. There is a decent hoppy finish with a hint of orange marmalade. A nicely made pils with a light refreshing body.

Bottle. Pours a deep golden colour with a medium white head leaving a good lacing. Malty aroma with some sweetness and breadiness. The flavour is a bit sweet with a good maltiness, bread, some bitterness and some grains. Dry bitterish bit sweet finish.

33cl Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with small white head. Light nose that reminded me of cooking flour. Flavor was creamy/buttery. Suggest better Bohemians.

Compact white head on a clear golden body. Fairly light floury nose. Notice the hops mainly in the taste, fairly simple but true to style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted 9/20/07. 500ml bottle. Filtered with a golden hue. White head. Fruity bready aromas. Apples and citrus nose. Light to medium bodied with a bright crisp smooth flavor. Good malt flavor but a tad soggy. Smooth brew. Not as dry as most Czech’s, but still nice. The effervescence is low, but widens as it warms. Nothing special, but tasty none the less.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottles this pours a bright golden body (holding it up top the light might account for the brightness) with some lazy bubbling and a foamy white head. It has an aroma of fresh bread with a light (not as in bright) floral/grassy body. It’s got a well rounded, malty body, tasting bready and slightly grainy. The light floral hopping in the flavor doesn’t seen serious enough for a Pilsener. Dry finish. A sessionable lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden color with a taller light cream colored, slowly diminishing head. Light floral hops mix with flour, dough, resin and a touch of white grapes. A toasted malt start with a mild herbal and dry floral hops infusion. Quite dry in the finish and linger with only a light sweet malt paste residue. reminds me of a dortmunder more than a pils of any kind.
