2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a darker golden, slightly hazy with a bit of suspended fine sediment and a thick off white head that settles quickly to a ring and film and leaves light touches of lace. Nose up front involves skunky hops which give way to a cooked vegetable note, light sweet malt and some rustic spice. Fairly sweet flavor, not incredibly bitter. Light to medium bodied, somewhat active but fairly soft with a rather abrupt finish. Once again, without the skunk factor this might not be half bad, but it lacks proper hop character all around and presents as a tad over-sweet, and not quite pure.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,5L green bottle, from Systembolaget Luleĺ Sweden.
Fluffy head which diminishes on the golden amber body, only a thin spotted layer is left.
Scents of hops, grains, citric, apple, and malt.
Taste; hops, grains, lots of malts, herbs and spices.
Mouthfeel is good, and carbonation does not disturb, and it’s not watery.
Ends with bread, roasted malts, dough, and only faint hints from cardboard.
Overall a quality czech pilsener.
Shared at home with my wife while she cooked salmon with lemon pepper and basil.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber with a frothy, mottled white head that settles down in a few minutes to thin foam. Viscous lacing.
Nose is yeasty and typical of pils. Taste fairly standard as well; a grainy liquid sourdough bread kind of thing.
Medium body, vigorous carbonation. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep yellow colour, with a nice medium and fluffy head.
Malty nose, with some herbal notes. Taste is malty too, with some bitterness, but not much for a pilsner.
A good pils.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Jokseenkin vetinen ja ponneton tsekkityylinen pils. Muistelin tämän maistuneen paremmalta Slovakiassa, mutta kaippa tämä on sitten hanaversiona onnistuneempi. Plussaa, että muodostaa kaadettaessa tiheän vaahdon. Maussa epämiellyttävää hunajaisuutta.

Pours a clear straw colour, aroma notes include pepper, floral, cereal, honey. Tasting notes include grains, honey, bready, slightly fruity and a lightly bitter finish. Not a bad Pils at all!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Although the nose is initially cereal grains, the taste is all pilsner. Lightly hopped, rich golden color with soft, creamy head. Medium weight mouthfeel and some lingering malt/hops on the palate. Easy to drink and highly enjoyable.
