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.

Pours a coppery color, clear, topped with about a finger of tan colored frothy head. Malty aroma, some fruity and caramel notes as well, slight soury smell too. The taste is quite bittery, slightly metallic and herbal. Nice and easily drinkable.

Fľaša z Nitrianskej pivotéky. Pekná, dobre držiaca pena, príjemná chmeľovä aróma. Chuť plná, slad, chmel, v pozadí pražený karamel. Chutné polotmavé pivko.

Beczka (Praga). Aromat: chmielowo-ziołowy, słodowy z nutą paloną. Wygląd: piana jest obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa. Piwo ma barwę ciemnego bursztynu i jest klarowne. Smak: raczej słodkawe, palone i lekko karmelowe. Odczucie w ustach: wysycenie na średnim poziomie, wyraźna gorycz chmielowa (może ziołowa), ale nie męczy a wręcz fajnie balansuje smak. Ogólnie: smaczny, bursztynowy lagerek.

Bottled.Deep amber colour with red hue, big burnt sugar flavour. I’ve had this style before and liked it. It takes a little bit of time to get into but then you begin to enjoy it after a while. Long palate and flavour, the develops in the mouth. Didn’t taste anything like 13%....b/c that was the degrees plato. Thanx Rauchbier.

Pours a light orange brown, clowdy islands of head float atop. . . deep sticky hazelnut malt aroma, that has a sweet component like cherry oak. . . acidic palate that has metallic notes and good spice, but overall a bit thin. Malty flavour is present in the finish with some thin airy caramel and syrup. Lingering hoppiness leaves a nice taste and saves this one for me.

Deep amber colour with fairly big off white head. Malty aroma with caramel sweetness. Flavor has a lot of caramel sweetness and a hoppy bitter finish.

Hansen (8436) - 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.

larsga (7314) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 8, 2009
Biggish creamy beige-brown shiny lasting head. Lovely brown body with carbonation. Malty spicy roasty aroma with roasted almond notes. Sweetish spicy roasty licorice taste with grassy hop notes. Good harmony and balance. Mid-bodied. Dry watery roasty dusty earthy aftertaste. Spicy roasty taste lingers for a long time. Nice, and highly drinkable. (0.4l bottle, U Ferdinanda, Prague.)

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2009
Deep amber-reddish colored body with a nice off white-tan head. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel, some floral notes of hop. Smooth mouthfeel with a nice vienna character like tosted caramel, toffee, some sweet grains. Fine moderated and balanced hop, some fruity tastes in the finish. Correct one, i could sip it for hours with buddies...
