The semi-dark red ale, brewed in the old Czech technology has gentle velvet taste of caramel with the notes of light bitterness. The rich ruby color and thick white foam give to sensations brightness that cannot be forgotten. Refreshes and satisfies thirst in the heat and lights you on parties.

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.

thewolf (11114) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2009
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.

thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 12, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated light brown colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was malty dirty sock and skunky. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thin flavor contained notes of mild hops and mild brown malt. Not one that I would buy again.

Drank this one while watching old episodes of Cheers with my buddy Big J aka jayson2425. Skunk taste, not bad but nothing special.
