2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottled) Clear, reddish amber color with almost no head. Somewhat stuffy, herby aroma with dark fruit hints. Sweet, caramely-malty, slightly roasty flavor with cherries and ashiness. Light to medium-bodied, a bit thin, quite low-carbonated palate. A bit strange brew, but not very interesting.

0.5 L bottle from Pivovarsky Klub, Praha. Two fingers of dense, yellow shaded, blond head. Body is sparkling, bright ruby brown. Moderate aroma of dryish, lightly toasted malts. Some dusty and metallic hops. Taste is medium sweet, light malty, with a slight astringent accent, apperantly from the herbs added. A faint sourness and some noticable bittering hops underneath. Light to medium body strenght. Lively mouthfeel. Dryish, herbal, mild hop bitter ending.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the highlights of my Czech beer experience, and the beer that changed my mind about the Vienna style. This beer is very dark red. It has a thick head that lacesthe glass and never completely fades. Aroma has caramel, malt, fruit, and hops. Malt flavor with tannic red wine; dry like wine with a similar mouthfeel. Excellent palate. Very good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very inviting amber/redish color with a rocky head. Not much aroma. Can't put my finger on the taste - is it grassy? Somewhat sweet with tones of caramel.
