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.

So called "half-dark" beer. It is decent, nothing amazing. Slightly sweet with a nice aroma.

Draught at Ferdinand Monarchia in Budapest, Hungary.
Dark reddish brown colour with small white head.
Yeasty, dry woody, nutty and malty aroma.
Dry mild hoppy bitterness in flavour. Not my favourite but still quite drinkable. Soft carbonation.

Amber colour, and a real fine big head. Not much aroma. Flavor is a bit funny, some czechish-notes, mixed with some acidity.
