330ml bottle from Zly Časy bottle shop.

Appearance is bright orange/amber with white and dense head and long lasting foamy layer that lasts very long. Aroma is slight malt, bits of fruity scents and noticeable piney hops.

Taste is rather solid bitterness, fruity citrus with long lasting bittery feel in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light, moderate carbonation.

Overall, a good and refreshing APA, it was suprising to find it in Czech Republic.

Hazy light Amber with metronically regular bubbles ascending to top up a decent small dense head with some lacing.

Aroma is light wet cardboard malt with some mild hop hints of grass and pine.

Subtle honey pale malt flavours and some generic and subtle US type hops. Lingers metallic.

A bit sharp in the mouth and the metallic finish is a bit much.

So-so at best.

We had this on tap at Zubaty Pes in Prague. An all right ale....quite light, but not the best from Matuska.

With a faint, fresh aroma of wheat and hops, and a light, yellow color of straw, this ale is exactly what you’d imagine a classic California beer would taste like. Overall, this ale is dry; beginning with a bitter, sharp bite, which turns into a milder, light wheat, slightly sweet tasting body. At 12°, this is ale is pleasant, and perfect for a hot sunny day.
