COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prémiový tmavý ležák doplňuje tradiční nabídku piva z pivovaru Budějovický Budvar, n. p. od roku 2004. Je vyroben stejným postupem jako originální světlý ležák, za použití nejvybranějšího žateckého chmele, moravského sladu, vody čerpané ze 300 m hlubokých artéských studní a tří druhů speciálních barevných ječných sladů: mnichovského, karamelového a praženého.

Charakterizuje jej výrazně tmavá barva, suchá, jemně hořká karamelová chuť bez dominance sladkosti. Vůně je delikátní po praženém sladu.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- bottled 7/31/15 - Clear dark ruby brown color, beige head that drops to a solid cover, stringers of lace. Aroma of light malt. Taste is heavy dark malt that adds a tongue-tingling burst of carbonation on the swallow, then moving to a lightly hopped finish. Heavy and one-dimensional, making me wonder if it is past it’s "best by" date.

From Hipercor. In Ikea’s pilsner glass. After dinner. Pleasant in all aspects. I only miss a bit more "punch" to consider it excellent.

Intensywny aromat kawowy, lekko palony, dosyć przyjemny. Kolor ciemnobrunatny, klarowne. Piana beżowa, wysoka, średniopęcherzykowa, szybko opada do cienkiej warstwy, delikatnie zdobi szkło. W smaku wytrawne, palona kawa, słodowe. Niska, popiołowa goryczka i wysokie wysycenie. Można wypić lekko schłodzone w upalny dzień.

Bottle, I think picked up at the foreign foods shop in Cricklewood. Dark brown in colour, ruddy. Quite dry, ashy bitterness, clean palate. Pleasant but nothing overly exciting.
