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.

Dark brown colored, medium weak tan non lasting head. Aroma is of caramel, Munich malt, roasted malt and somewhat sweet coffee. Taste is moderate sweet caramel, Munich malt, roasted malt with a chocolate-toasty finish and a bit of fruit somewhere in between, low on hops and bitterness. Low to medium bodied, watery texture, medium carbonation. Can’t shake the feeling that it left a stronger impression a few years ago but I still like the bugger!

Czech people know how to brew awesome dunkel lagers, indeed. Excellent beer with strong toasted notes, like coffee, wich glad remains for a while after drink.

realadam (88) - HUNGARY - APR 17, 2015
Typical tmavy lezak aroma, nice long lasting head and a not-sweet, bitter taste. Not a bad beer, but there are a lot of better dark beers in thus price range.
