Roublard (159) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 13, 2013
Bottled. Proper foam, not very stable, but solid and looks pretty good. Looks closer to amber, but a bit lighter. Aroma is rich enough, although nothing really special, a lot of hops with a bit of sweetness and bread. Tastes properly, a bit bitter and a bit sweet, not original combination, but works very well. Body is more light than full, thin texture, lively carbonation. Finish like it should be in ležak - a bit hopper, although not long enough.
