yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2008
Bottle. A nice, clear, brown beer with a slightly small, beige head. Caramel, some roasted notes, dried fruits and a vague note of cooked vegetables. Nice, slightly roasted flavor. Pleasant flavor of fresh fruits as well. The bitterness is quite subdued, and is mostly there in the finish. Medum fullness with a pleasant level of carbonation. A truly quaffable beer, combining roasted malt and fruityness in a nice way. (071215)

Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
Dark amber with a moderate head. The aroma is very malty and the flavour is sweetish and malty with light notes of caramel and licorice. The finish is dry and rather bitter. Initially it was so sweet that I almost poured it down the drain, but after a few mouthful it became better, and it actually have something to offer.

thewolf (11126) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel. Pours a pretty, clear red amber with a smallish fluffy off white head. Aroma has lots of caramel, lightly roasted and a apple scent in the back. Nice, regular Vienna mouthfeel, not too watery nor too full. Malty caramel flavours dominate with a toffee twist as well as a dry roasted hoppy finish.

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.
4/4/4/2/7=2.1

medium sized head, the beer is quite dark in colour. Malty aroma. Malty taste, the herbs are in the background, but traceable.

Tap at Chr. firtal, Odense. Red amber with fine white head. Aroma has roasted malts- Little metal malty caramel taste with a dry hoppiness. Silky smooth texture that is closer to watery than to thick. Overall good and drinkable Czech brew!
