Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2013
Rotbraunes, klares Dunkles mit verhältnismäßig wenig weißen Schaum. Karamellmalzaroma mit duftigem, floralen Hopfen. Frischer Antrunk, etwas dünn. Wunderbare Balance zwischen malzaromatischem Beginn und zartbitteren Abgang, dazwischen irgendwo auch feine Fruchtnoten. Ein Zechbier.

Big head though beer smell, lace, and nice reddish dark colour. Well malted. Carbonation on the aggressive side. Overall bold taste, with some herbal addition. There is a bit of yeast and wheat in the taste. Good finish.A good Vienna, thanks to Jan Biegeman

pivnizub (8750) - 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 !

6/4/6/4/13=3.3

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.
4/4/4/2/7=2.1
