COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber Lager

inbirraveritas (1256) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 18, 2012
On tap at the 5th Czeh Beerfestival, Bp. Clear amber with an off-white/beige head. Malty aroma ruled by medium sweet caramel underpainted by mild toast, dough and herbs. Mild bitterness escorts the medium dry finish.
Earlier Rating: 5/11/2010 Total Score: 2.9
Flip-top bottle. Poured a nice appearance with an amber colour and a fine pored, pale brown head, which remained creamy on its top, carbonation was average. After it taked enough air, the smell was grassy with some caramell and yeast. Tasteing started crisp, the flavour was of light toffee (and unfortunately a bit cardboard-liked, too) mouthfeel was rather watery than medium. The middle was ruled of the grassy hops, the caramell malt was low-keyed. The finish was of some spicyness and dry, which remained in an average-kinded aftertaste. I’ve tasted it for one time in the past and kept it like a better kinded vienna/dunkel in my memory, but at this time it wasn’t really impressive...

Kita (1191) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 17, 2012
Bottled, 0.5l.Clear deep amber color with large frothy beige head and soft carbonation. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel and spicy hops. Flavor starts with sweet malt and caramel, followed by sudden dryness and crispiness. Pretty well balanced with long and strong hoppy finish. Medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Good and drinkable...
