Those around me always say "it smells like weed" when I pop the cap. Just goes to show how rich, pure and hoppy a beer it is.

Golden colour, fast-dissipating head. Some skunk on nose. Good taste with prickly carbonation. Bitter finish.

"Always Czech Brewed" Every beer should be brewed by the makers, all this sub licencing is bollocks and wrong...respect to them.

Head stays up well, beautiful and very witheld fizzing, kind of unique.

Aroma is heavenly, hoppy and flowery...really beautiful, wow.

Taste compared with aroma is a bit disappointing., as that was the best aroma ever. However it is still a unique and beautiful flavour...kind of surprised I did not have this sooner.

As a lager, this is one of the best I have ever had. No doubt. The floweryness has a bitterness that balances well, so it is not feminine, just a perfect balance of orgasm between 2 different elements.

Not as good as most IPA's, though as a Euro lager, possibly the best...

To improve...more hops/bitterness, and more alcohol...a bit less floweryness...

Golden yellow, light smell of typical European pilsner. Clean and light tasting with perfect bite and medium lingering of hops which give that tannin like feeling of dryness. Great taste, definitely a go to beer and one of my faves for the past few months!
