Special half-dark beer brewed of several types of malts and hops with an addition of herbs which will give this beer a characteristic fragrance and a pleasant dry bitterness. Its ruby-red colour contributes to the overall perception of this drink.

Pretty good beer, little too sweet for my palate, hop and herbal aroma very mild and in good balance with maltiness of beer. Caramel taste in aftertaste with little bitternes. Boring beer? No, not at all.

0.5l bottle bought at Magic Beer Room. Dark amber/light brown body. Plum and caramel dominate the aroma. Very sweet on the palate (too sweet for me but I can see why people would like it), with a tiny bit of bitterness on the finish. Some hops if you dig deep enough. Was much better draught at the II. homebrew conference in Zagreb, but I could have been too exhausted and drunk to make a valid judgement.

Iható, a maga nemes egyszerűségével. Cseh sörben sem vagyok még kellően jártas, de ez a főzet felidézte a 10 évvel ezelőtti sörtúra zamatait. :-)

Jun ’14. On tap at homebrewer competition in Magic beer room, Zagreb. It poured clear copper body with medium sized head. Caramel and bread aroma, predominately malty. Hops were evident only in the flavor, as lightly bitter balance for toasted malty dominance. Caramel, dark fruits and a bit of bread were most pronounced flavors. Medium bodied with sweetish and herbal bitter finish. Very good polotmavy!

3rd Oct 2014, on tap in Ferdinanda, Prague: by far their best beer on offer that evening, the other three being towards the bland and uninteresting types of beer challenges. This 7 Bullets brew came in lovely 0.4 litre vase shaped glasses with the beers name and logo on them. We had three each of these as we really took to the sweetness and flavours. Pours a pleasant deep amber with a good sized white head that did try to stay but failed somewhat. Aroma was of malts, semi-sweet caramel, dark fruits and a toffee hint in the background. The taste would too sweet for some but my wife and I really took to it. So much more interesting flavour wise than the Pilsner/lager/dunkels we had tried before this brew. Light bitterness finished each sip off nicely and primed your taste buds for the next mouthful. One of the best beers we had in our beery week in Prague.

Pours a coppery color, clear, topped with about a finger of tan colored frothy head. Malty aroma, some fruity and caramel notes as well, slight soury smell too. The taste is quite bittery, slightly metallic and herbal. Nice and easily drinkable.
