Draught, Magyar Bar, Budapest. Really a pretty pissy eurolager, not worthy of any further prose. However, I did bump into Miss Slovakia on this trip, in the paddock at the grand prix, and I can tell you she was a definite 5 !!!

Bottle from Lee’s Liquors in Las Vegas. Pours a clear golden with a medium white head. The aroma is mostly sweet malt and straw. The taste is a sweet malt, with some bitter pepper and metallic flavors in the finish. A decent beer.

50cl, bottle. Nice aple gold straw colour, with a short head. Has a long finish. A good Slovakian pilsner.

Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Pours straw color with a nice white head. Smells of dry malt, some perfume, some nice spicy hints, to9uches of fruitiness. Tastes dry and peppery with a nice underlying bitterness. Great beer!

posikyle (165) - Alabama, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Pours bright gold color, thick, dense head. Flavor is of malts with generous adjuncts. Not a great beer, but a great beer on a hot day.

Bottle green, 500 ml, 12 P
Appearance: Pours bright golden, clear, well filtered, but deeper in its body colour than the 10 P counterpart, carbonation is soft in body texture as the beer is quickly decarbonating and head initial appearance is small to medium and slowly decreasing to a small froth on body surface. Head is white in colour and is leaving great lacing.
Aroma: A hint of positive, good quality fresh hops, sourness, fresness, herbal notes, a bit chalky, alcohol is totally hidden and maltyness is also hidden as the beer is cold, when it gets warmer some sweet oily maltyness notes are becoming present.
Flavour: Bitter, hoppy with aromatic floral and gently grassy notes. Than on the palate you can feel grains, bisquits, citruses, such as lemon and grapefruit, bitterness binding your tongue and as the beer warms on your palate it gives you wonderfull hoppy aromatic nose. Dry, no addition of sugar, classic Bohemian Pilsener. The best Bohemian Pilsener from Slovakia. Finish duration is average, grainy, flour, malted barley present towards the end, very nice, well balanced Bohemian Pilsener with character.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is dry, carbonation is medium on palate, finish feel is very chalky and floral with nice bitterness binding your tongue.

MrBunn (2867) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Bottle. Ahh... pour is a bland amber with a bit of a head that has long since left the building. Aromas are a nice mix of peppery and floral hops with a bit of honey-like sweetness lurking in the background. Flavor is more of the same, although hops are much more floral and much less pepper/spice. Very refreshing and drinkable.

Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville. Light amber color with a quickly disappearing head. Very grainy aroma with no detectable bitterness. Taste starts off grainy and becomes bitter, fruity and slightly metallic. Definite sweaty sock notes. Medium body.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 6, 2008
Good one from Slovakia. Traditional beer of the neighbours. Pale golden color, light white head. Floral hop dominates the aroma with bready malts. Smooth mouthfeel with some citruses, floral hop, bottom yeast. Not a very big beer, but drinkable.

dEM1972 (53) - , Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Pale, light golden in colour; subtle hops and barley mix, not too strong in odour; subtle fizz, there’s plenty there but its not a mouth full of bubbles experience, rather soft; delicious, earthy taste, not too strong, not too light; has a bit of an aftertaste, but not over powering.
