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.

tomer (1902) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 4, 2008
0.5L bottle, Small quickly diminishing head, dark brown almost opaque but with some lighter taints. Aroma mainly of sour barnyard with a touch of caramel. Flavour made of bitter roasted coffee, almost no sweetness which make for an extremely dry beer. Feels a little light and watery, could have been a little heavier.

Rune (8823) - Tromsř, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2008
500ml bottle at home, courtesy of Finn.
Pours a tight, beige head over a deep, rosewood body. Satisfying aroma of roasted malt. Plenty of roastiness in flavour backed by the sweetness of cocoa and some gentle bitterness to a rather short ending. Flat carbonation and medium bodied (07.09.2008).

DSG (7456) - Tel Aviv, - SEP 1, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2008 Bottle. Quite a good-looking beer of dark brown color with a big beige head that diminishes slowly. Aroma of some roasted malt, caramel and coffee notes. Sweet flavor with nice maltiness, caramel, some roastiness and some dark bread and coffee notes. A lingering drier finish, quite bitter, with light Saaz hoppiness. Medium-bodied, but could use a bit more body. A good Dunkel, I enjoyed this one almost as much as I enjoy the regular Budvar.

It’s a HELL of a lot better than the Budweiser we know. Budvar is supposedly THE original Budweiser. This dark lager was pretty good. It pours a nice dark brown with a smooth head that goes away quickly. The aroma was above average. It would have been better if it didn’t have that typical green bottle skunky smell. It doesn’t taste skunky at all thankfully. The finish is good. Overall, a good beer that would probably be better if it was in a brown bottle. I’ll have to try this on tap someday.
