Amber color. Typical smell of English ale - earthy hops and fruity tones (esters). Smooth, quite sweet in taste, caramel. Fairly good beer, well available and quite cheap in Czechia.

Beautiful looking, but bland. High fluffy head on light amber body. Initial malty aroma, taste is bread, and weak. Nothing on the palate, overall mouthfeel is watery. Easy to drink but unfulfilling.

Served cold from 500ml bottle into pilsner mug.

L) Clear, light copper-amber colour, lots of bubbles, tight fluffy 1cm white head. Looks good.

S) English hops, for sure. Sweet honey tones as well. Again, smells attractive.

T) Smooth, with light English hops and a light bitter tang.

F) A bit of thickness to it well being well carbonated. Just the job on a warm day. No skanky bitter or metallic aftertastes.

O) Recommended, this is now my favourite Czech English ale! One to drink cool on a warm day.

A: Copper toffee with no carbonation, relatively clean filtered and a 4 finger light beige head.


S: Toffee, caramel, toast, child’s aspirin.


T: Banana, tea, astringent, hard water, dull bitter hops, a sort of glue taste.


M: Medium chewy body like water thickened by iron, little carbonation.


O: Fascinating. A Check beer based on an English style. I get the style, just some unique attributes that make me say its not your typical beer from Britain. Sort of how Coopers is somehow different because its from Australia, and some US companies have their own versions of this style. Somehow not British, but its own animal. Got in CNX, drank there too March 5th, 2015.

Amber copper color with a very thick three fingers head with great retention and leaving laces.
Aroma with notes of papaya, earthy and acid hops, some herbal notes, grains and mild caramel.
Flavor with notes of earthy and tangy hops, bread malt, just a bit of papaya with lemon drops, tobacco leaves, hay, some citrusy and grass. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with appropriate carbonation.
A Czech take on an English Pale Ale. This came out fairly decent and pleasant, I would certainly drink this again.
