UPDATED: JUN 13, 2011 First rating
Draught at Ferdinanda, Praha
Clear dark brown color, fluffy tan head. Sweet roasted malty scent. Smooth sweet malty caramel taste. Smooth mouthfeel, low bitterness. Malty dry aftertaste.
Draught at Prague Beer Museum on June 5, 2011
Hazy copper color, fluffy off-white head. Spicy and acidic scent, a bit sour. Malty but sour rasre, I don’t think this is OK. Thin mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Won’t let this rating push down the previous, since this beer must have gone bad at this place, or else served out of an old keg or similar.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Pivovarsky Klub, Prague, unfiltered, 300ml. Cloudy dark amber with malty head. Over the days we came in here we found that this bar particularly enjoys to serve unfiltered Czech beer, and more power to them, I hope it is succesful. There was a lot going on in this beer it was bitter and woody initially, rather as if it had been stored in an oak barrel then came through a sweetish, sherry like body with an alcohol burn and finally a nutty finish, I agree not a lager as such, but a Vienna? maybe. I see it was brewed in honour to Ferdinand d’Este, well there could be a lot worse things to remember him by. A good beer made better by serving unfiltered.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Amber coloured, mid-sized fluffy head, slowly diminishing; sweet-malty, caramelly nose with a tinge of herbal hops; sweetish flavour, medium ti full bodied; first sweet-malty finish, later a slightly bitter aftertaste. Well drinkable !
Why is this beer called "Seven bullets" (Sedm kuli) ? The austrian heir to the throne Ferdinand d’Este, who lived to the year 1914 near Benesov, was killed in Sarajevo by seven bullets. This was the beginning of WW I !
