3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at U Kunstatu, Prague. Pours hazy deep golden with a moderate big creamy white head. Aroma is fruity, with lots of lemon. Taste is herbal hops, some good citrussy notes, sweet marmelad malts in the back, never overpowering this hoppy driven big lager.

Bottle. Enormous thanks to Ivan R. & Mirna for sharing! Really glad to finally tried this one. Memorable name, funny from a Croatian perspective in more ways than one (so are plenty of things here for Czechs, so don’t worry, it’s reciprocal). Ahaaanyway, poured a misty golden body with a good thick white head. Pungent aroma, lemony and herbal notes, ending dry. Huge herbal and nicely fresh lemony taste, vague grapefruit and/or lime notes perhaps, it’s a mixed bag in that manner. All in all, nicely citric. Ends with solid, quality bitterness. I have to admit I kinda dig Agnus if it’s still used! Another great hoppy beer from Matuška

Výčap Kulový blesk. Tmavšia zlatá farba, biela hustá pena. Dlho držala. Vôňa chmeľová, horká, jemne citrusová. Chuť opäť plná chmeľu, citrusové a grapefruitové tóny, trošku pikantnosť na konci. Dlhá horká dochuť.

Lahev (7,5 dl, Díky Michale!): Golden, nearly clear, big ;loose and slowly collapsing white head; moderate to solid spicy (not only Saazy) herbal hoppy nose, some yeast (?) in the background; almost solid dryish bitter flavour, some (malty) sweetness well detectable, medium bodied and pretty soft; lingering and solid bitter (with hops sticking to the palate) finish with a good pale-malty counterpart. Great and well balanced stuff. S radostí...

On tap Worthy of the Manuka brand, strong, elegant. Nice color, good feel on the tongue, lingers after drinking. This beer makes me want to be a sailor. Well, maybe not... :-) Well above average, good one.
