Bottle shared at puzzl’s place: Deep brown pour with a white ring of head. The aroma is starchy with some bread crust malts and a touch of skunk (green bottle). Light, slick body. The flavor is bready, again, starchy, skunked stale noble hops with a peppery note. Eh.

puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Darkish, filtered pour. Very vegetal, string peas, marshmallow aroma. Medium bodied, tons of Munich malts, very super-noble in flavor. This is a boring rating.

zach8270 (3467) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 17, 2009
(bottle - 500 ml) Clear copper color with a very thin white head and light carbonation. Aroma is sweet and malty with hints of caramel, apples, and some very light hops. Flavor is very light. Some mild hops and dry malts with a very mild sweetness underneath. Thin-bodied and rather watery with a very light and bitter aftertaste.

Carfi (293) - Rakovník, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 15, 2009
The best Czech semi-dark beer with a balanced taste. Color is balanced, but is more prevalent dark. The taste is sweet and the drinks taste better than Bakalář 12° . Directly Rakovník brewery is the company store.

Dark amber color. No aroma. The light caramel flavor is dry and a bit grassy. Boring.

Bottle, bought @ SuperBest, Christiansfeld.
Pours clear darkish golden with a nice, creamy, white film head. Aroma has light rye, brown sugar, malts and general sweetness. Medium carbonation, fine dryish mouthfeel. Flavour starts with brown sugar, then some caramel before a fine, grassy hops leading into a long, dry, bitter finish. Okay.
