Golden color. Smell is a bit boring, doesnt show too much. Some weak grass and malts. The taste however, is very full and complex for the style. The beer has a barley like sweetness, with in the aftertaste malty sweetness to a bitter dryness. great.

On tap at II. Cseh Sörfesztivál, Budapest.
Golden coloured, medium sized white head that went away slowly, grainy nose. Ok malty, decent hoppy and slight grainy taste with mild bready notes. Bitter hoppy finish and aftertaste. Enjoyable Bohemian pils.

Fukito (919) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 26, 2007
Keg @ Microbar, november 07. Clear, shinny golden/ orange color and a small white head. Bittersweet, gentle flavor with an interesting acidic tang at the end with some crystal malts notes. Nice. Medium mouthfeel, some citrusy/ flowery hops coating with the malt just keeping them at bay. Nice, flowers, caramel on the nose with some suplhurous notes that takes away from it. Nice, citric, fresh pils.

At the II Cseh Sörfesztivál, shared with ogivlado. Guess this is it. Golden body, medium sized head. Grainy, worty nose, quite nice. The taste is bready with a distinct saaz note, pleasant and refreshing if simple.

From Zly Casy. Pours clear and golden yellow with no head. Aroma is toasted malty and slight hoppy. Sweet, toasted malty and flavoured. Bitter and rather dry into the finish.
