Bottled. Golden colour with mediumsized creamy white head. Aroma is grassy and slightly bready malts. Flavour is nice yeasty/fruity notes which turn into quite bready malts just to be a big grassyness in the finish. A pleasant beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from Pivní Galerie. Clear golden colour, lovely creamy head. The aroma is a bit unusual and does not remind me of beer very much. Nevertheless, the beer itself tastes great. Very malty start with a touch of fruit and then a good portion of Zatec/Saaz hops which results in a lingering and intensively hoppy-bitter finish. Very good indeed.

Bottle, at ZBF 2006. Gold, thin white head and gentle condition. Pleasant honeyed flowery hop and malt nose, excellent malty sweet and honeyed hop balance in the mouth and a controlled flower hoppiness lingering in the finish. Good Budweisalike.
