74 / 100
Tried at the brewery in Prague.
Cloudy dark gold body. Good lacing, tending to offwhite head. Minimal carbonation, collapsing head with big bubbles.
Hoppy fragrant nose, with a zingy metallic smell, quite citrussy, but with a nice sweeter fruit fragrance too. Very nice.
Excellent hoppy bitter palate, fragrant and fresh. Hints again of ripe fruit, but the sharp hop bite cuts throudh the sweetness. Quite wonderful.
Mouthfeel sharp and crisp; a perfect complement.
Could this be the best Czech pils in the world? Quite possibly. Whatever beer holds that mantle should be quaking in its boots in any case. Wonderful.
