Bottle 0,33l. Clear, deep gold colored. AROMA- malt, floral hops. FLAVOR- moderately sweet, almost not bitter, floral hops, alcohol. Medium bodied.
Not very good one for me, I don’t like these strong tasteless lagers.

Gold colored with no top at all... Very dissapointed about that beer. No imperial aroma or taste...

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2016 Deep gold thick creamy tight white head, poured in a pilsner glass effervescent looks like a typhoon going on in there. Strong sweet malt and bread aroma, taste full sweet with bitter balance bit of fruit bread going on. Excellent!

Pours a clear golden color, topped with a small to medium white soapy head. Aroma is grainy amlt, sweet feel, slight alcohol presence. Taste i ssimilar. Sweet and malty, some bitterness in the finish. Alcohol presence. Too strong and too sweet. Not my favourite, really.

Złote, klarowne piwo o słabej pianie, która szybko redukuje się do zera. Aromat słaby słodowy. W smaku wyraźna słodowość z nutą chmielu. Goryczka niska w stronę średniej, przyjemna, ziołowa. Ogólnie całkiem pijalne, szału nie ma, ale jak na koncerniaka nie jest źle.

KoNrRiI (1181) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2015
0.5 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of pale malts and alcohol. Taste is also quite alcoholic, relatively simplistic to boot. Light body, thin tecture, and average carbonation. Finish is filled with alcohol and grains. Overall a bad beer, dms and liquor all the way through.

Jamedra (722) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 23, 2015
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je sladové s jemným chmelovým akcentem a lehkým závanem alkoholu. Pěna je bílá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť je výrazně sladová s přítomným chmelovým komponent, finiš je slabě hořký lehce palčivě alkoholový a držící. V ústech pivo působí plně, má střední až silný říz a je hůře pitelné. Není to špatné pivo, ale je i spousta jiných lepších silný světlých ležáků.
