3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It is a beautiful, dark amber beer with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of caramel and malt. The flavour has a light sweetness and smooth, mellow notes of malt and caramel and the finish has a dry, slightly citrussy bitterness. It is a very charming and uncomplicated beer – very easy to drink.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml flip-top bottle from bestillingsutvalget, Systembolaget. Beige, one-finger lacing-head. Shining brown coloured body. Smell of mid-sweet grainy malts. Chocolate-caramel malts in flavour supported by dry, herbal hops towards the ending. Soft in the mouth. Medium bodied, and really a well composed dunkel. Enjoyed while watching Sábliková on TV, running very fast on 3000m. Good Czech beer and even better Czech speed skater (Tromsř, 09.01.2010).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium but very nicely stable cream-coloured head over hazy chestnut beer. Discreet, but nice nose with earthy, dark leaves and pastry notes - some Maillard? Dry, very earthy & leafy taste. Virtually no restsugars, pretty impressive. Bit of ironoxide in the flavour as well - the water? or more Maiilard? Creamy mouthfeel - not overly well-bodied, but certainly not empty. Very good Dunkel - cheerfully abstaining from the dreaded sweetness that plagues many’s the German sample. Thanks to the people providing - they were right about this one!
