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.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 30, 2009
Bottle. A clear, copper colored beer with a big, coarse, off-white to beige head. Lacings. The aroma has some dried fruits and caramel, some roasted malt and hops. A bit boring maybe, but quite good. Dried fruits, caramel, some roasted malts and a fine noble bitterness in the mouth. Dry and full-bodied. Slightly roasted, bitter finish. A beer that starts off a bit boring, but turns out to be a fine, pleasant lager with wise use of hops. (090426)

Maria (10123) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 14, 2009
It is dark, red amber with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel and light fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of caramel, roasted malt and dry citrus in the finish. It is deliciously malty and yet refreshing and dry, a nice combination.

Headbanger (3226) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2008
16.9 oz bottle-Bakalář Light Dark Beer on label. A light amber body with a small ring for a head and an aroma of skunk and soy sauce. Taste of the same with a caramel malt taste on the back end. The skunk taste does not come out. Not bad but not good.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Have not had a light dark beer since Blatz Dark (America’s great light dark beer). True amber color with a thin lid of light beige bubbles. Toasted bread and just a hint of herbal hops with caraway and rosemary. Light brown sugar start with a earthy malt background. Fairly watery at times. Some light spice in the finish and linger. Also a bit of licorice and caramel floating about. Interesting, but not that entertaining.

Drinking from a green bottle of Bakalář Light Dark Beer... what an intriguing name! The word "Amber" is also on the bottle and it shows a 4.5% ABV rather than the 4.8% listed here, but this is clearly the Bakalář brew that I hadn’t tried yet. It pours a thin amber body with a dinkus white head that rapidly reduces into a ring around the glass. The aroma is sweet and bready with a generous dose of caramel. It’s a tad thin but manages to deliver flavors of caramel and toffee with a light grassy/floral hop bitterness. Not bad.
