3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the Hotel Victor in Prague. Deep gold-almost amber, with a silky, bubbly head. Lots of butter in the nose, toffee, and also earthy hops. Flavor also toffee—butterscotch, with some orange as well. Sweet and buttery. Also has a very earthy, grass hop flavor but with light bitterness. Smooth and full. Interesting balance and flavor—a bit too sweet and buttery, but flavorful and very original. Amazing for a 10 degree beer. Earthy as hell—great, original use of hops.

My Bottom Line:
A stupendous balance of honeyed maltiness and leafy, herbal hoppiness leads to a marvelously lengthy and dry bitterness. This Svetlé Vycepni is more corpulent than usual, and its flavor profile proves there is lots of potential for this underling of the Bohemian Pilsener family.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A compact inch of foam ices the hazy blond.
-The aroma is not as enticing as the flavor profile.
-This vycepni is as flavorful and round as a healthy Svetlé Lezak.
-The yeast character is a little dusty, like in all of their beers tasted that day.
