harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2013
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. Serving type: bottle 12-22-2010

Bottled (Prisma, Vaasa). Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grainy, grassy, bready malty along with some herbal notes. Flavour is herbal, grassy, bready and a bit slight toffeeish notes. Refreshing, but a bit mouldy/earthcellary, otherwise fresh and nice.
