3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at U Medvidku, Prague on 11 July 2010. Crystal clear deep red-black with thick lowering creamy foam head giving some frothy lacing. Caramel malt in aroma; some citric notes and a beautiful blend of herb, grass and spice plays equally on the tastebuds. A bitter kick occurs when taking larger sips or gulps. This bitterness rests on the roof of the mouth and lingers in what I found to be a satisfying finish. Zingy mouthfeel. A very pleasant tmavý indeer, and incredibly easy drinking. UK drinkers may think of Goachers’ Mild on its best form at Maidstone.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 33cl. A very dark beer with a nice head. Smell is on caramel and hop. Aroma is amasing on toasted and roasted malt, finish is bitter and long but dry. As the beer is less alcoholic and not sweet the brown aroma can be fully tasted and appreciated. Nice Munich malt and roasted barley flavor, a bit creamy. Very nice beer, well balanced, a pleasure.
