2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml brown bottle poured into a lager glass. Appearance is clear yellow with a medium sized frothy white head, that dissipated quickly. Aroma of rice, cereal, cardboard, wheat bread and hay. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Palate is light bodied, slick texture and fizzy carbonation. Žatec Celia is a mass-produced industrialised standard lager targeted at consumers with a gluten-free diet, and this is no worse than a regular lager. This beer reminds me of Asahi Super Dry (that is incidentally also in EU brewed by Carlsberg), overly sweet puffed rice and kind of cardboardy flavour profile. Respect to the brewery for including the nutritional values on the label this should be the norm. The label also confirms that the sweetness is not just a figment of my imagination. The whole bottle contains 14.85g of sugar, which is too excessive for a light lager, this amount of sugar is comparable to 8.5%+ ABV Belgian Triples.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
33 cl can. Crystal clear, light golden amber, medium to thin white head, medium carbonation. Not much to the nose, just a slight hint of sweet liquid. Mouthfeel is thin, slightly bitter and dry, no carbonation. Flavours are mild, subdued, just a slight hint of sweet orange and grass. My personal messages to the brewery would be "why bother"?, and "How do you dare to call this hand-crafted"?

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Crystal clear, head disappears so quickly it is virtually non-existent. Light golden color. Aroma slightly grainy, hints of fruit. Palate watery, low carbonation. Taste sweetish, fruity, very low bitterness. I dunno, it does not even taste like beer although it well may be one. Definitely it has some cider-like qualities. As a beer thi s is a fail unfortunately.

Kita (2073) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 20, 2016
2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Clearl golden color with thin quickly diminishing white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is grainy, grassy, mild vegetably and papery. Taste starts light to medium sweet grainy and crisp, but mellows later, following is vegetably and skunky, mouthfeel is dry, while finish is mild bitter. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Poorly hand crafted, almost the same as other industrial sh*t...
