3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
PETka z pivovaru. Hazy pale yellow, large white head. Full-bodied for a desítka, malty and pleasantly hopps with a yeasty touch. Great!

not part of the "sweet non-sense pilsener club" and yet not as hoppy as hops heros such as jever. first and formost: passed the hang-over test, good stuff it is. sorry mates, didnt see a peach floating in there, really dont know where you got that flavour from.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub: Hazy, pale golden, mid-sized white head with a good lace, pale malty and distinctive aromatic hoppy nose; light bodied, distrinctive bitter-sweet flavour; lingering Saaz finish, sticking to the palate. O.K., a very good Desitka in the classic czech style.........

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 At the brewery. Looks just like the 12%. Quite sulfurous again but with slightly less of everything compared to the 12%. Perhaps a touch too much corn chip but good lean malt and a good apricot fruitiness. Nice one.

Hvezda. Hazy amber/gold. Quite dry peachy flavour, bitter saaz in the finish, very dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 re-rate - i’m starting to really get into desitkas and this is a good example of the style - fresh and grassy and extremely drinkable.
well, i finally made it from plzen to this brewery 10kms away. quite a pale desitka, some peach in the aroma, quite dry and simple but melted in the mouth. not much sweetness and a reasonable amount of powder bitterness. not a bad start
