This is a Czech lezák but a bit cheap and thin one - 11 degrees equals about 4.6% ABV. But this seems to be okay for the Czech people, even though for us it might feel a bit diluted. Not as nicely hopped as a good lezák should be but it faintly reminds you of it. So perhaps for the Czech people drink this as a light drink, maybe we should drink it in this manner.
Pours golden, two finger white head, poor retention, decent tracing.
Swear to God this smells like cooked cabbage. It might also be the first time i detect "sweat" in the smell. Some faint stewed hops and grains, but it's all very off-putting.
FIrst seconds of the taste retain that stewed veggie feel, some grains and buttery notes cut it short, but then it's a bit skunky, sweet, granted with a touch of decent fruitiness (apple, very faint berries). A bit of wood, dry grassy finish, with an almost decent hop presence and a mild bitterness, touched by metal a bit.
Medium body and carbonation. Aftertaste is a mess.
I'm puzzled. It has a (very) few nice notes that deserve being mentioned, but it's a bad Czech lager in the end. Borderline ok, i guess.
