marigold (27) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 30, 2013
Hazy orange color, rich white foam head, quite stable, hoppy citrus aroma with egg undertones of yeast, intensive ripe fruits in the begining, kills the variability typical for good Ales. Certainly tastes like stronger beer than 15°. After a while on palate some grapefruit bitterness, quite spiced and earthy, old cellar tones (might be just problem with the sample). Ending is round and pleasant with hops and malty bread, it makes this Ale quite drinkable. Don´t like the sweetness and rough bittersweet body - it’s hard to say, what kind of Ale it should be. Still better one in Zvíkov’s porfolio, which is from my point of view showing some declining quality in last few years,

Gurthnar (1574) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 7, 2013
Tap at Hostinec Richtar Jakub. Aroma is very nice hoppy, orange, pineapple, light floral. Hazy golden colour, huge white head. Taste is nice and hoppy. Hops balancing the honey sweetness. Otherwise pineapple, orange peel. Higher drinkability. Finish essentialy the same as taste, lightly grassy. Overall good.

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2012
(swing top bottle, 33cl) Hazy, pale golden colour with a blond and huge foamy head. Distinctively notes of citric and grapefruity hops, accompanied by herbal, nettle-like spices and pale malt. Mildly bitter and slightly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Pale malt-character with loads of fruity hops with notes of citrus, grapefruit and lemon grass; quite dry and mildly bitter finish with an assertively citrus-fruity touch. Very pleasant. 04.VI.12

Lahev s patentnim uzavrem: Pale greenish-golden, stable loose white head with a good lace, lemony and lemon-grassy nose; moderate sweetish-bitter flavour, relatively light bodied, but pretty soft; lingering sourish and hoppy finish. Very pleasant czech stuff...............

Quack-Duck (7779) - Down South, GERMANY - APR 8, 2012
draught at Zly Casy. Deep golden colour, large and creamy white head. Incredible aroma of fresh hops, resiny and spicy. Medium-bodied, fruity malty flavours complement the delciious hops. Spicy, resiny, floral, fruity... delicious, you can almost chew this. Superb!
