COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional Czech dark lager with rich flavour given by a special combination of four types of malt, which also endows the beer with fullness and a unique caramel flavour and aroma. A pleasant bitterness and rich stable foam complete the unique character of the beer.

Bottle. 4,5%. Best before 03.05.14. Pours a clear dark brown with a tan head. Good lacing. Sweet aroma; molasses, feels a bit like a hvidtřl. Flavour is malty, with molasses, though not as sweet as the aroma. Light roasted note. Slight cardboard note as it warms. Bitter and malty finish with a lingering coffee-like bitterness. A bit dry. Overall okay. 23.12.13.
