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.

rosenbergh (8897) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2011
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.

Quack-Duck (8862) - 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 (8704) - 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.

JorisPPattyn (8688) - 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.

Hansen (7809) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2005
Amber colour, and a real fine big head. Not much aroma. Flavor is a bit funny, some czechish-notes, mixed with some acidity.
