tsurkan_sergey (42) - Novosibirsk, RUSSIA - JAN 6, 2014
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?

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.

Bottle 50 cl. Clear amber golden with a dense, creamy and lively off-white head. Sweetish aroma of burned caramel and a little flowers. Medium body with a very soft mouthfeel, roasted malts and caramel. Vague notes of cardboard and minerals. Dry and hoppy finish. Very well made. 060609

Dedollewaitor (13677) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2009
50cl bottle @ VinensVerden, Odense. Label says 4,8%. Pours dark brown with a small creamy white head and lacings. Roast, caramel, bread, grain. Some sweetness but overall well balanced. Extremely smooth and lots of flavor for a beer with such low alcohol content. Very nice!

ElDesmadre (1475) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 30, 2011
Bottle. Beautiful red-brown colour, head is not very big nor durable. The expected skunkiness fades away fast leaving the smell of malt with a graininess reminding me of cooked groats, hops, some cherries, ash and very little amounts of wet cardboard and metallic elements. Taste is a quite intensive but also slightly metallic bitterness, nutty hops, caramel and a very light fruitiness. There is also some maltiness in the taste but it is subdued, as this is quite a hoppy vienna - which makes it the more enjoyable for me.

Maria (10124) - 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.

yngwie (13108) - 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)

Clear red brown beer. Crisp semi dry palate. Light malt with just enough depth of flavour. Roastiness and bitterness are absent. Small amount of hop fruit. A brief banana note and some minerally zing to finish off. Nice beer.
