UPDATED: APR 8, 2009 Big offwhite shiny lasting head. Yellow body. Weak fruity honey aroma. Dry-sweetish mealy fruity apple malts taste with grassy notes. Smoothish mouthfeel. Fullish body. Dry buttery honey aftertaste with mealy notes. Quite nice, but really unremarkable. (0.3l bottle, Pivovarsky Klub, Prague.)

Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with floaties and no head. The aroma is quite weird, maybe it’s yeast. The flavor is sweet with again that weird element. Light body with strong carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mineral honey and mild herbal hops make for a rather unappealing aroma. Simple and somewhat childish in its direct and naive sweetness.
Fizzy effervescence through honeyed malts have never pleased me, and this isn’t an exception. That mineral character is still there, fading into a quiet dryness. Not much to say about this one I’m afraid, really not up to par to the 11 or 12 from this brewery.
Candy shops don’t appeal to me anymore.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Clear golden colour with a thin white layer. Shy sweet malty aroma. Medium sweet malty taste with a rather dry hoppy finish, with a clear but low-key honey note on the palate. Medium bodied and crisp. An enjoyable brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Golden colour, thin, short lasting head; sweetish, slightly malty beginning, malt-accented taste, quite medium bodied, short, spicy and bitter aftertaste with a tinge of sweetness; the honey is extremely well hidden, nearly the same brew as the "Lezak" with a tinge of sweetness, but not , as expected, better rounded. Anyway: a good one.......

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Clear golden colour. Big, frothy, lacey head. Slightly sweet, grassy nose, bu rather weak aroma in general. Sweet, caramelly taste. Then there is something that reminds of mlik-chocolate, which I deem to be the honey. Tastes a bit like a dark bock to me rather than a pale lager(?). Slightly chewy mouthfeel, rather fullbodied. I seem to be the only one, who likes this beer, and was quite suprised to find it rated so lowly here.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slight (cold?) hazy deep gold; snow-white head, fast gone. Cocos, every so slight sourish tinge in the aroma - nothing uplifting. Taste - yes, here’s some honey, as the immediate initial flavour. Then some moments of more bitter, hoppy flavour, ending again dull-sweet. Palate is again more bitterish, but not anywhere noble hops-like. Bit of flavour as "honingbollen" - Belgian anti-cough sweets. Light MF - but also empty. Uninteresting beer, dull. Tastes like many’s the homebrew.

Draught. OK lager with some vinous character. Not very flavourful for a 14 degree.

Sociable strong lager, malty, dry and crisp in taste with some strange fruity hops in the finish. (Draught at Černohorský Sklep, Brno)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bright yellow with thousands of bubbles surrounding the body under a quickly dimishing white head. Aroma is earthy, wet hops with a strange sour grass component. . . flavours are subtle but there for the patient: apricots, spicy hop cones, pepper, crunchy sourdough crust and a raisin or two, pleasant and refreshing.
