Can from Fonefan, thanks! Brewed by Heineken Sopron, Hungary. Soft grassy aroma with aluminium notes. Grassy hopbitter flavor, somewhat grainy. Medium bodied with a hint of metal in the aftertaste. Slightly disappointing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clear golden color with a medium white head. Aroma with some malt and some grassy Saaz hops. Sweetish malty flavor with a rather light bitter hoppiness in the finish. Body is rather light. Not that bad, but could use some more hoppiness, body and character in general. Oh, and I like the bird on the label.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at the Eurostash tasting on 04/30/09: Can from a small tourist bar at the river port in Bratislava. This brew is a clear golden color with a medium frothy white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Mild hops aroma with a touch of citrus zest. Light body with a clean mouthfeel and flavors of mildly spiced hops, bready malt and citrus. The finish is grassy hops with a short citrus aftertaste. Barely average overall.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 If you get it fresh and in a can it can be really striking. It is a smooth, mellow pilsener, but one that you with want more and more of.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml from a dark green bottle with a gold coloured foil around the neck. Picked up at Systembolaget Kiruna during a beer trip to Swedish Lapland last October. Chalky white head reduced to a few patches on the surface. Spotty lacework on the glass. Clear gold body. Grainy smell with notes of grass. Sweet pale malts up front with notes of noble hops. On the sweet side of a bittersweet ending. Slightly oily palate. Food friendly (shared with Frau Eva, Tromsř, 23.01.2010).
