3.75/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Good lacing. Typical lager colour. Average carbonation.

Smell: Light aroma of floral hops and malt. Pleasant.

Taste: Light taste consisting of mild bitterness and sweet malt flavour. Floral Saaz hops are detectable.

Overall a good example of a 10 degree plato Czech lager typically producing around 4% alcohol . A light but somewhat flavouful lager.

82/100

Gambrinus Original 10º
330ml can

Appearance: Quite nice. Clear, straw gold body beneath a massive head of frothy white that rises out of the glass a bit. Very good head retention and lacing.

Smell: Basic beer. A little malt, a little hops... mixed, balanced, without anything really standing out.

Taste: As the aroma suggests, this is a fairly basic lager. The malt is light and clean, and I'm sorry but I have to compare it to American Budweiser. It's not a malty Czech pils, but a more tamed down Euro lager (it is just 4.3% abv). There is more bitterness than Bud, however, but really not that much. Where it goes beyond American Budweiser is in hop flavor. It's got far more pleasant noble hop flavor. It's well-balanced, and it finishes clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium in body and crisp with a fine, median carbonation.

Overall: A refreshing, easy to drink Euro lager. Clean and simple.

Another beer picked up in Prague, enjoyed in Tel Aviv, in a can too!

Pours a huge fluffy fizzy almost 3 finger head that fades fairly slowly, nice lacing too, crystal clear light tan colored beer.

Nose light straw pilsner malts, little macro like lager unhappy lager aroma, light corn mash, touch of tin, and fainy grassy hop, and touch of an adjunct sweetener.

Taste starts with a sweet malt mash, some corn flavored mash, light toasty pilsner malt, mild sweetness. Then into lager, a bit of unhappy macro lager poor flavor, corn mashed adjunct flavor. Faint grassy hops. Finish is drier but bit sticky, more unhappy lager flavors, touch of sulfur, light grassy hops, little more corn mash.

Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb.

Overall not very good, on the macro end of the beers, lots of not so great flavors.

Gambrinus Original 10º (4,3 abv), 500 ml bottle

Very nice, clearly. It's absolutely well-balanced, and it finishes clean and dry. I love this beer. This is one of my favourite Czech...

Therefore I advise you to drink it as soon as possible. ;-)

It was my first review, sorry for the shortness.
