yngwie (16504) - 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)

imdownthepub (13232) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2006
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.
