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.

Finn (4531) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2008
Bottle 0,5l. Dark ruby red colored - almost black. A large creamy tanned head. Pleasant aroma of nuts and malt. Modest flavor of biscuit and malt - like bread. An evolving nutty and fruity dry aftertaste with hints of coffee and chocolate. Refreshing and quite good. KI=6.

punainen6 (93) - FINLAND - JUL 22, 2008
Bottle. Big brown head with roasted malts and chocolate. Easy to drink and not too sweet to have a few in one sitting. Carbonation is light and taste is yet one-dimensional but good.

On Draft in Prague - Tyn Court. Pours a clear dark brown, large head quickly going down. Nutty caramel taste but smooth, roasted malts. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Ok, didn’t seem to have enough body to me.

On tap in prague, not my favourite of the czech darks but taste of smooth nutty chocolate, with dry aftertaste. Had in bottle today and decided it tastes better on a cold day

On tap in Prague. Nutty, malty, lots of grain. Sweet, a bit too dessert-like, but not at all bad. More for winter drinking, perhpas.

wheresthepath (1660) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2008
[Nitrokeg at the RISC Global Cafe, Reading] A hint of dusty, gone-off plain chocolate, but overwhelming flavour is a metallic bitterness. Some ash and sourness comes through in aftertaste, leaving a very dry mouthfeel, but overall this is pretty unpleasant. In all the court cases between the Czech Budweiser/Budvar brand and the giant A-B, we were all secretly rooting for the little guy, the Czech company. But in return for our support, they’ve gone mass market and this now tastes like grim, weak, macro swill. Thanks guys.

tlind2 (1202) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2008
500 ml bottle. Deep brown color, big tan head. Aroma of roasted malts. Pretty light body, with more roasted malts and a suggestion of coffee. Not bad.

bhensonb (11809) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Draft at The Spaniards on the Heath. Dark brown color with orange/garnet hilites. Creamy light tan head. Dark toasted malt aroma. Near full bodied with medium carbonation. It is balanced, but whether from hop or burnt malt I cannot say. Suugests the old Guinness in a way, but with a different bitter.
