Tried on tap at Piwnica Bakalar, Novosibirsk. Amber lager. Color - amber, dark red copper. Foam - milky, slightly creamy, fine, but kept short. Floral aroma, caramel, roasted sugar, smoked notes. Taste - mild bitterness of hops, roasted malt. Actually tastes like sweet stout - very similar to the El, but not sure that it always write lager. Or Czechs Ležák beer called?

Bottle. Pours clear dark copper brown with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel, with hoppy notes and a touch of fruit. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with sweetish, malty touches and caramel notes. Rather thin body. Bitter finish with mild sourish touches. Acceptable, drinkable, appreciable, but nothing really impressive.

A science experiment gone right. Pours a deep, glowing amber-garnet with a healthy beige head that settles slowly and leaves some clinging clumpy lace behind. Nose involves some light caramel and toast along with some faint earthy and spicy hops. As it warms, touches of chocolate and even a savory smoky quality develop. Just the lightest skunkiness presents itself. Pretty sweet flavor with some bitterness involved: light to moderate amounts of either. Medium-light body, active carb, with a toasty herbal bitter finish of moderate length. Really half-way decent, an easy drinker. Malty, but cleansing and crisp. This bottle couldn’t possibly have been fresh, as it had been sitting around collecting dust for who knows how long, but it held up really well, especially for such a low-alcohol brew. Really surprised by that.
