Golden hazy turbid, low level head, sweet malty aroma and flavour, grainy very easy to drink.

brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - JUN 16, 2013
(tap) Golden, clear, with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is rather spicy, with lots of herbal hops and some cereals, a touch of honey and a piney and mineral touch. Taste is a bit sweet, with light to medium bitterness. Palate is slightly sticky. Overall a good, spicy beer reminiscent of Heller Bock-style, but lighter. Well-crafted.

bierkoning (13689) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2013
Swing top bottle from Ruprecht_007, thanks! Deep golden color. Grassy, bready aroma and flavor, almost herbal. Soft somt fruity notes, citrus and prunes. Well balanced. Good Czech beer!

Grima (2506) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2013
The beer in the glass is strong golden yellow, slightly cloudy, with a high, soapy head. It smells yeasty and sweet, subtly tart, with a lot of aroma hops, grain and bread. Starts mild malty, very bready and grainy, with plenty of aroma hops in the background. The middle part shows some sweet yeast, coupled with a lot of grain, bread and aroma hops. Goes into a hoppy-bitter finish, coupled with some caramel and toffee.

kerenmk (5169) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Pours clear golden, bubbly, no head. Malty and a little sweet aroma, some grain and laundry detergent. Bitter metallic taste, a little watery. Light body, smooth texture, sticky, sweet finish.

DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Clear deep golden. Aroma of grassy hops, bready malt and light graininess. Sweetish flavor, a bit bready, a bit caramelly, with a drier finish with light hops bitterness. Light to medium-bodied. Kinda drinkable, but not great.

HenrikSoegaard (14620) - Randers, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Moderate malty and light hoppy aroma. Light bitter flavor. Week butterscotch notes. Average moderate bitter finish. Oily palate.

kappldav123 (6133) - GERMANY - JUN 18, 2012
Thanks to quack-duck for that bottle. Looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts fine malty-grasy, a bit moldy. More and more spicy. Finish less moldy, dominated by spicy notes. Quite drinkable. Good!

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2012 Brava: janaterová, pěna bílá, s velkými bublinami, nedržící. Vůně "sklapní" nepříjemná. Chuť: sladké pivo s nádechem jablek, mírný chmelový dozvuk. Nepříjemná nevývažená chuť. Edit: předchozí kousek byl asi zkažený. Barva zlatá světlá, pěna vysoká, středně hustá. Vůně příjemná lehká sladová. Chuť: jen mírně nahořklé pivo se středním řízem s výrazným sladovým tělem a lehkým chmelovým dozvukem.

Mariusz (12080) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2012
Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malt, grain, corn, light caramel. Taste is malt, caramel, grain, grassy hops.
