On tap, at Pivovarský Dum, Prague on 7th July 2010. Leaf green with pale green-tinged head of foam. Herby minty aroma then a very grassy taste from the nettles. Notes of green tea and the finest touch of delicately sweet peppermint. A very dry, quite bitter endtaste lingers. Very well crafted, but tastes differ and on this occasion so did mine; however I have rated it on the strength of the design effort and how well it was kept in the pub.

A - Clear, light kiwi green color with an average sized foamy head that is white with a greenish tint. Average retention with a decent lacing left.
S - Definitely has a strong nettle/herbal smell. Also a bit earthy and peppery.
T - Similar to the nose with a lot of nettle, herbal, and pepper taste. This provides a biting and bitter taste throughout. Slight earthy and herbal hops are present in the middle of the sip. After drinking it for a while, there was a very slight almost mint like taste on the finish, although it never lasted long or really competed with the nettle taste.
M - Light body with lower than average carbonation. Fairly smooth but quite thin.
D - The nettle flavors get to be a bit much and I wouldn’t want to drink more than one, but it was smooth and wasn’t a chore to drink.
Notes: Interesting beer that definitely has a strong nettle taste. Worth a try, especially if you like new, interesting beers. I had it before the meal and it did make a decent apéritif. Dedollewaitor (16238) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2009
Tap @ Piv. Dum. Pours clear green with a creamy white head. Sweet, spicy and fruity elderflower. Quite artificial. Thin palate rozsoma (1085) - Gyõr, HUNGARY - NOV 17, 2009
it was worth to try but nothing special. the green colour is very strange. the herb notes dominates the flavour. real nettle. KnutAlbert (6760) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2009
On tap at the brew pub.
Nettle leaves, eh?
Day-glo green. Herbal and medical. Maybe with less nettles or a more robust beer base?
I presume spinach is the next?

Draught at the brewpub. Poured a lovely green body with a greenish/white head. Strong spicy/herbal nose. Nettles and bitternesss dominate the taste. Sticks in the aftertaste. Not exactly nice tasting but might pass as refreshing I guess. Skinnyviking (9644) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2009
Draught. Low and quickly disappearing white head. Clear green body. Grapefruit pine aroma. Acidic pine flavor with some odd herbal notes. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste. Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2009
Poison green colored with vanishing green head. Grassy aroma with herbs dominating. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is drier with grassy herbs still, aftertaste dries even more. Christian (13759) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2009
Clear green with a disappearing light green head. Refined and complex herbal aroma, parsley, thyme, nutmeg and leeks. Sweet and herbal flavour, slightly bitter finish. Weird but good. Diar (121) - SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2009
(sampleglass at pivovarsky dum, Praha) Cöear green with no foam. Intresting aroma that is very flowery, should be nettle but for me its bird cherry and mumma. It has a light taste with decent bitterness and lots of nettle. the palate is light, almost like water.
