Clean, malty and refreshing. A good chugger for those who are thirsty and like a rich flavor.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Well this is an interesting dark lager. It features an earthy aroma with maybe some sweet caramel notes. Taste is a little musty with roasted malt flavors and some sweet bitterness in the finish.
Aftertaste is rather earthy and not too clean. Good overall, but what throws me off is how watery the body of this beer comes across. Not Czechoslovakia's finest brew, but an honorable mention.

Bootle from Tesco. Chestnut colour with frothy tan head. Flavours of caramel, a touch of chocolate and some roasty notes before quite a sweet finish. This is nice and refreshing and goes down easily. A very nice dunkel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pours a deep reddish brown colour with a medium, light brown head. Malty aroma with rye bread, dried fruit, leather, wood and some chocolate. The flavour has more roasted malt and coffee, and some dried fruit and cola. Has a smooth and soft mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A decent and easy-drinking dunkel.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Aroma is sweet syrupy caramel. Nothing more. Light light coffee. Clear dark ruby-brown colour. Taste is lightly soapy, otherwise quite balanced coffee with caramel. Simple though, and not very enjoyable. Average industrial beer.
