on tap at vinarna hrozen today. from a freshly tapped keg, apparently mine was the 7th poured from it. anyways, took a long time to pour, came out a luminous butterscotch shade of amber with a massive, splotchy and uneven beige head. decent aroma of pineapple chinks, orange pip, cake dough. fresh and doughy - banana bread, buttery texture finishes fruity, lightly bitter. mellow and very drinkable

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Hotel Belveder. Poured a murky red (a bit ambery) colour with a nice medium sized off white head. Rice crispies in the nose and some jam. The taste is light, with a nice subtle fruity sweetness and some notes of wood and rice crispies. Quite drinkable, but can be improved on.
