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.

draught at Vanocni Pivni Trhy Praha 2007. Clear amber/mahogany colour, creamy head. Wonderful aroma of caramel. Full-bodied, malty with hints of caramel, toffee and chocolate. Hoppy in the lingering finish.

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.

puzzl (3254) - 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.

pivnizub (9012) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2010
Bottle: Amber to deep amber coloured, bigger rocky off-white head, sticking to the glass and slowly collapsing; light to moderate roasty and nutty nose with a slght hoppy background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, not really light bodied (for a beer of 11°); slightly lingering hoppy and sweet caramelly finish. Very well balanced and tasty....

Bamsen78 (3426) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2013
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.

Dark copper. Small off-white head. Caramel, berries and refreshing continental hops in aroma and taste. Good drinkability. Perhaps a bit waterish.
