3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Svitavák is a beer which was originally brewed by Pivovar Svitavy, which was closed a few years ago. Now this beer is brewed in a town nearby: Havlickuv Brod. Clear, deep golden yellow colour, large white head, intensive malty nose. Full-bodied, sweet and malty with lovely Saaz hops flavours. Bitter-sweet character. Well-balanced, a really good Bohemian Pilsener.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 svitavy sure is a pretty town. anywaze, this was salty and prickly, full-mouthed and weird. melon and peanuts and something in there slightly nasty that makes it taste stronger. tastes a bit like when you drink a beer after brushing your teeth
