2.68/5 rDev -1.1%
One bottle purchased in Prague.
.L Bottle served in a Pilsner glass.
A- clear, Light Gold, small head that dissipated quickly, no lacing.
S- relatively neutral; some malt and light hops
T- Toasted malts, light bitter aftertaste, mild hops; tastes a bit watered down.
M- light boy, low carbonation.
D- Didn't realize until after I bought and researched "Decko" that this is a low sugar beer made for diabetics. Taste reflects it.

Returned from Praha, thanks Ron and Cheryl!
500ml brown bottle, writting all in Czech so as to leave me in the dark as to what to expect.
From the pour it would turn out another Czech lager. No real head forms. Some small bubbles can be spoted but no lacing to follow up. Aroma stays unoffensive. In large part this one avoids the DMS and adjunct, but still can't manage to offer much appeal. Taste developed an off-putting cider like complex especially as it warmed. Flavours became increasingly pear and apple like. Not much in the means of malt, though some could be detected. Less can be said for the hops. All in all a pretty weak offering.
I've read since that the 'D' in the name is for diabetic and is a speciality beer with reduced sugar for diabetics. Not being able to read Czech I can't say for sure this is true, but might account for what makes this a less than average beer.
