On tap at Pivo Söröző, Budapest. Clear, deep golden color with big, creamy, pillowy head. Interesting sweet-sour, ginger odor. Complex, grassy, spicy and herbal aroma with a bit sweet, parfume flavour. I can feel many herbs and spices with some berries too. Light sweet taste. Slick texture, light to medium body, average carbonation. Sweet finish with berries. It’s a very interesting spicy lager, but I think it would be better as ale. It’s worth a try!

Piwo bardzo specyficzne. O mocnym i intensywnym, a w zasadzie drapierznym aromatem szpitala i lekarstw. W smaku wyczuwalne ziola, przeroznego typu, podobne w smaku do Becherovki. Piana spora i trwala. Kolor amber, finisz mocno wytrawny i ziolowy. Likierowy posmak. Piwo trudne w odbiorze i nie do codziennego sporzycia. Polecam ciekawskim bo to zupelnie inna bajka niz sztandardowe jasne lagery.

Bottle from brewery. Amber color wit huge off-white head. Strong medicinal, herbal aroma. Medicinally bitter taste with notes of caramel. Bad experience.

mmahut (615) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 11, 2013
Amber golden body with good head. Aroma is special, herby, first sniff is very similar to Becherovka, very sweet. Malty sweetness with bitter liquorish plastic like taste, very off-balance. Body is full with fair carbonation.

Whisky colour, nice white head. Cinnamon and cardamom aroma. Flavour of cinnamon, licorice, cardamon, herbs, sweet and with a finish bringing some hops flavour.

ElDesmadre (1361) - Mikołów, POLAND - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle. What a pleasant surprise! This beer feels like a regular Czech lager infused with two shots of non-alcoholic Becherovka. There is some malt and hops, but also notes of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, coriander and honey. The beer is rather dry with a very dry finish, where the hops go hand in hand with the herbs to provide an underlined bitterness. This is supposed to be a "beer aperitif" and it works very well.

Postupně sem budu doplňopvat piva, co jsem vypil a zapsal si, chvilku to asi bude trvat a proto k těm dříve vypitým pivům nebudou žádné "dojmy" . Zajímavý pivo, ale mě ty bylinky nesedly .

Bottle. Pours Golden. Herbs dominate this beer in a way I don’t like. It’s bit medicinal. Too sweet as well. Basically a sink job by my reckoning but that’s my own prejudice.

50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Praha. Rated on 14.10.2010
Aroma has somewhat sweet malt, some licorice and spices. Flavour is malty with some licorice, hints of soy sauce and spices. Too sweet for my taste and also a bit odd.
