1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled, pasteurised, Vratislav Tesco Premium Czech Lager, 500 ml. Light gold with a head if you poured from a great height. Surprisingly low in carbonation compared to similar lagers, but rather sweet and a little too smooth. Low flavour impact. Not the worst lager I have had, but not great quality either.

Bottled. Vratislav Premium label Weak, hoppy aroma. Rather bland with notes of sweetness, and a little hoppiness. Not very dry nor bitter in the finish. One of the worse Czech pilsners I had.

Bottle. Hoppy aroma. Drinkable but an unpleasant ’cleaning product’ finish.
