2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Based on notes from 02172014) 500 ml bottle. Medium to dark clear yellow colou, huge frothy mostly lasting white head, good lacing. Moderate to heavy malty aroma of grain and light bread with heavy grassy hops, a bit of butter and some alcohol. Taste is initially bittersweet and acidc with bitterness slightly dominating, turning into a long bitter finish with a moderately astringent and slightly alcoholic feel. Medium to full body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Not a bad Czech pils, a bit one-dimensional and boozy perhaps. But immensely enjoyable and slightly more aroma and taste than many of them, most likely due to higher original gravity.

Pours golden with a nice, slightly off white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts and floral. Bitter taste at first, followed by grassy hops. Slightly sweet and spicy and slightly alcoholic tasting. I really enjoyed this.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flasche 50cl. Leicht trübes, hell-kupferfarbenes Bier mit kleiner Schaumkrone und relativ wenig Kohlensäure. In der Nase böhmisches Tennenmalz, eine Spur rauchig. Saazer Hopfennase sehr im Hintergrund, meiner Meinung nach untypisch für den Stil. Süffig. Hätte mehr CO2 vertragen für mehr Frische.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2017 From Gene’s. Smells, looks like a decent Czech lager. Full mouth feel. It is a little stronger than a regular pale lager but the malt is turned up to make it very sweet. Too sweet. Even the nice grassy hops could over come it. Serving: Bottle

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A golden beer with a hansom, big and white head. The nose of malts, balanced sweetness, some aromatic apples. Taste is strongly malty, balanced malty sweetness, diasetyl and butter, grassy hoppyness, hint of apples. The bitterness dries the mouth and also taste enough. Medium and smooth bodied, slightly harsh carbonation. Good beer, balanced and strong malty body with nice hoppyness.

Smack me in the face now! Up front nearly over the top sweetness that makes one go....ugh. finally settles down so that some decent graininess can be appreciated. Its still hard to enjoy from the up front precipice of sweet, unless you like the taste of barely hopped wort.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2015 1/2L brown bottle from Alko, provided through K Kilpishalli, abv6.
To the nose hops, sweet malts, and something that reminds about fresh baked danish bread. Head quickly diminishes and leaves only some dots on the amber body.
Tastes roasted hops, malts, and bitter but well balanced in the mouth.
Aftertaste with sweet bread, in a dry bitter ending. Good beer.
