500ml can - I love how this was accepted so quickly on here, but they had to go and 'correct' the lower-cased aitch in 'hoppy', even though that's how it's written on the bloody label. Should have used a [sic], I guess.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, rocky, and somewhat creamy off-white head, which leaves some decent broken webbed lace around the glass as it quickly dissipates.

It smells of gritty and grainy pale malt, toasted white bread, some weird old-school yeastiness, a hint of wet minerality, and some rather understated earthy, musty, and floral noble hop bitters. The taste is bready and doughy cereal malt, fading yeast, some indistinct mixed domestic citrus frootiness, and more rather plain leafy, weedy, and musky floral green hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly average in its palate-supporting frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, with nothing really getting in the way of a good time here. It finishes trending dry, the grainy malt pretty much running the lingering table.

Overall - this is a fairly tasty European lager, however I'm not exactly sold on the whole 'extra' anything, for what it's worth. Maybe this plays well to the traditional beerscape in Bratislava, but, yeah, the hops here are present, but hardly a clear danger to my North American tastebuds.
