500ml bottle. clear golden with a tight yet visibly bubbly head. Aroma of mostly sweet caramel esque malt, very strong in that regard even for a Bohemian pilsener. Mega malt in the taste, with grassy elements and an almost nitrogenated mouthfeel, this was nice at first but became very off putting after a while. Some bitterness in the taste, buried under grassiness and even more sweet malt. Was difficult to finish the bottle. Not torturous, but not my thing at all, and nothing like any Bohemian pilsener I’ve ever had. Will please some people, but not me.

Kauge (1617) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 16, 2016
Can from a local supermarket. BB 24.11.2016. Pours clear golden with skimpy, creamy off-white head. Malty cardboard aroma and flavour, just bad. Finish fakey grassy bitter. Carbonation aggressive.. Just had Staropramen before - compared to that this is worthless. Sink.

Flaske fra Systembolaget Strömstad, delt med Willy og Joa pĺ brygga: klar lys gylden med fint skum som varer. Mild floral humleduft og behagelig smak med litt citrus, sommerblomster og maltsřdme.

A bad beer. Taste very unbalanced. Alcoholic and sour taste. Metallic/iron smell and taste. In the end a pleasant green leaf taste (hazelnuts leaf?) that does not belong to beer. Cant describe it better. Very strange ironic taste. Not often my body signaled throwing a beer in the trash. But this time it did, so i listened and did that.

Flaska pĺ Hampetorps camping. Bärnstensfärgad med smutsvitt skum. Maltig doft av syrligt bröd. Ganska lätt i smaken med skaplig beska.

Evilman (131) - Taverny, FRANCE - JUL 14, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2016 A bit basic but decent. Taste is smooth and the beer is enjoyable for hot afternoons, but it lacks aftertaste that would made it really different from other pilsner available in czech republic. Still recognizable in its own way. APPROVED BY TAVERNY?S BLACK METAL CREW!

midovark (569) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - JUL 13, 2016
0.5 l can. Pours golden color with foamy white head that disappears quickly. Malts, hay and hoppy-grassy notes in aroma at the same time. The taste is bittersweet with bitterish finish. Light bodied, lively carbonated. Nothing outstanding.
