Tatra has a medium-to-thick white head, a clear, deep gold color, bubble streams, and a clear appearance, with moderate lacing left behind. The aroma is of very mild or faint sweet malt and grain, and the flavor is of subdued sweetness, bread, a straightforward grain mix, and low hop bitterness (use Icehouse as a point of reference). Mouthfeel is watery, and Tatra Jasne Pelne (full bright) finishes crisp and refreshing.

Tatra jasne pelne. Aroma - smells a tad hoppy, rather weak smelling, appearance - pours clear light coloured with carbonation that disappears quickly (drank from dimpled mug) with white head that disappears quickly. Taste - I would classify as 'piss beer', fairly flavourless with little going for it. Feel - slight astringency which is the only thing that is of any notice in this beer. Overall - I would not drink this again, it is a simple beer with no defining characteristics.

I got this one as a trade from a buddy of mine. I'd say he did right by me as it was an easy drinking beer. I've seen bad reviews of this beer but IMO that's only because folks think the only drinkable beer is an IPA.

Purchased at The Beer Store for just under $3.00 for a 500ml can. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a tiny head that is gone in seconds. Clear medium gold color

S- Not much here at all. Some malt

T- Not that bad. Has some body and substance to it. Good malt and some mild hops.

M- Has some good body to it. Surprising really

O- Not too bad. Will not buy again but it was ok.

Food Pairing

This pretty good beer went well with...... Salmon loaf.

Enjoy
