2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared with Milos and HogtownHarry, Milos’ bottle- Pours orangey amber under a frothy white foam. The aroma is hoppy, but soon a vegetal aroma sneaks up and attacks. Lots of cooked broccoli. Doughy malts. Some saaz hop flavour, but it’s also vegetal, mostly corn and some other unmentionables. Finishes a lot like a bowl of soup. Interestingly enough not offensive, and there were times I enjoyed sipping this one. Thanks for sharing Milos!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Different take on the text book standard for the style. Fruity, aromatic style on both the nose and palate. Almost like a fruity pale ale of English ale in this respect. Pilsner malts kick in late with very mild bitterness.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 500 ml. bottle, no freshness date, sampled in a pilsener glass.
Poured a clear bright orange hued golden, large rocky, creamy white head, good retention, active micro bubbly carbonation, minimal amount of sticking, a promising appearance.
Faint aromas of sweet grainy cracker-like malts, hints of herbal spicy hops.
Smooth light-medium body, crisp and dry tasting, sugary pilsener malts that are complemented by dry grainy saltine crackers, a light lemon honey, herbal, spicy hops that have a soft bitterness towards the end, pretty clean in the finish, just a lightly tingling spiciness lingers in the palate.
A good Czech Pilsener, not a great one, but one that is quite pleasant to consume, perfect for the hot, muggy days of August.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Pours a beautiful deep golden color w/ a full, semi creamy froth. Hangtime is good and rests to a decent lace. Aromas of skunky herbs and beer. Medium nectar w/ soft residual effers. Big rustic malts and decent hopping creates a balanced brew. Nuances of dried herbs, aged cirtus rind, and skunky malts. The finish is bittered nicely.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. In appearance this was fairly ordinary, but overall it was a level above a standard Euro-lager. The aroma was fruit with a touch of sweet malt. The flavour started grainy with a dry finish kicking in. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottel 24-10-2006 [Trade with thewolf, thanks] Average fizzy withe head that mostly lasted. Clear sparkling body with a yellow colour. Good lacework. Had that Czech like aroma maybe from Saaz hops. Light grass and dusty grain, some caramel notes with hint of citrus and cardboard. Light to medium bodied with a lively carbonation and light dry texture. Well balanced between the sweet and bitter flavour. Light dry and hoppy finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(33 cl bottle at The Golden Days, Göteborg) Clear golden color, small white head. Fruity and bready scent. Fruity and full malty taste. A bit sweet and fruity aftertaste. Full mouthfeel. Higher bitterenss than many Czech beers I’ve tried. Fruity and thirst clenching, nice. A hint of vanilla in the taste when the beer gets warmer.
