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.

Maria (10213) - 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.

pivnizub (10176) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2006
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 !

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.

allmyvinyl (9528) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 17, 2014
500ml bottle from Premium Czech Beers online. Pours clear amber, thick off-white head. Aromas of light caramel, hazelnut maybe. Taste is light sweet, herbal bitter. Clean finish. Not bad.

JorisPPattyn (9503) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2004
Brilliant ruby-chestnut; slim white rim. Nose with bread, sweet like Marssala or other dark dessert wine, definitely vinous. Taste again bready and very faintly vinous. Finish is bitterish, rather metallic. Maybe rather Balsamico than wine. Medium body, bit watery at the end. Not bad. I wonder whence the name ("seven bullets", thanks motelpogo). It's certainly not seded with diacetyl, what I fear most from imported Czech stuff.

Quack-Duck (9164) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2007
medium sized head, the beer is quite dark in colour. Malty aroma. Malty taste, the herbs are in the background, but traceable.

3fourths (9146) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2011
draft. clear striking rusty orange body with a fluffy and lasting white head. sweet approach turning somewhat thin and flabby with low acid, low bitterness, medium chewiness and noticeable yeast esters (berry, apple, orange). straightforward munich malt toffee and caramel, a bit too chewy and thin and out of balance, finishing with orange esters and caramel. nothing special.

Skinnyviking (8858) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 20, 2006
Bottle. Off-white head. Clear dark red brown body. Fruity malt aroma. Dry hops flavor with herbs tickling your tongue. Nice surprise.
