This is a Czech interpretation of an ale – pale in colour, with a good balance of malt and hops in the aroma, leading to a balanced flavour, with a moderate bitterness and crisp, lasting finish.

Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Apr 2013 during Spoons Festival - Orangey Gold in colour. Good condition. Fruity; orange citrus. Hoppy; grassy hops. Malty; grainy malts, caramel. Fruity hoppy mildly bitter throughout finishing dry. OK. Easy drinking.

SilkTork (5849) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
JDW, Rochester. Pale gold. Quite dry and wheaty with an integrated hop bitterness. Some nice biscuity quality, slightly sweet. OK.

downender (8882) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2013
On gravity at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol April 2013. Amber with a slight, off-white head. cereal malts, a touch of berry fruit and moderately bitter finish.

wheresthepath (2395) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
[Cask at Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading] Amber-gold with small white head. Good mouthfeel. Grassy, herby, hoppy continental hops are evident. In fact it’s quite a reasonably well-hopped beer with a good balance. A little dry in the fihish. The big problem for me here is that I’m not a big fan of continental hops & I don’t especially want them in a UK- style bitter. Sorry. But it’s probably a good lager to bitter transition beer for those who need such things.

ralphdot (1102) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2013
4.4% deep gold colour with a thin head, sweet malt aroma, slightly sweet but bitter malt taste.

gowdy (1116) - Erskine, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2013
Pint at The Sanderling at Glasgow airport. Dark brown colour. Fairly small head. Not too gassy.

Beersiveknown (5300) - NORTHERN IRELAND - APR 21, 2013
Cask at bridge house, Belfast. Golden blonde. Interesting nose of redcurrants, it starts well but after a few sips becomes slightly cloying honey and srawberries with a lingering finish. Fairly thin, but lifted by carbonation.

stravale (3135) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - APR 20, 2013
Cask @ Standing Order, Edinburgh [090413]
Light amber, clear, thin white head
Aroma - slight metallic hop aroma, light spicy lager hops
Taste of soft spicy lager hops, bit metallic, light honey, sweet pale malts
Palate - medium body, fairly oily, quite dry. Finish of soft metallic bitter hops with a hint of light fruits
Overall - Nope

imdownthepub (15325) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2013
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. Thin, somewhat perfumed beer, reasonably bitter but just lacks any depth.
