500ml bottle from local East European shop. Pale gold colour. Crisp carbonation. Light malt base. Light hops for a beer claiming an "original Czech taste", but there are some lager hops in the finish. An OK drinkable lager. Very average. Some cow shit notes.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from aaaaaaaaaargh can’t remember the name of the brilliant offie, which is at the bottom of Rookery Road, Handsworth. Anyway. This is exceptionally pale. There is some lemonade in the flavour bandwitch. Very slight in taste. Dried provisions aroma. Tonic water finish. Lacking in taste, which is a shame as the bottle is lovely, being so green and pretend Czech.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, from an ethnic food store in Hull. Pale gold, thin and quickly disappearing white head and low condition. Gentle fruity sweet malt in the nose with some developing estery notes. Full bodied and sweet in the mouth with hints of honey and herbal hop notes, but the finish is muted with an estery fruity bitterness lingering longest.
