2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from one of the supermarkets. Dark brown colour. Aroma is sweet caramel and a touch of roast. To taste it’s sweet, caramel and toffee with some toasted notes and a bit of burnt malt. Has that telltale boiled sweet character that ruins these boiled beers for me. According to the bottle the name is a protected geographical indication, but something this blandly average could be brewed anywhere.

Draught at Křbenhavnske Řldage 2006. Very dark reddish brown colour with a nice head. Little sour and some roastedness at the aroma. Also light roasted flavour. Ends up quite dry and some bitter. Not as good as theres normal Budvar.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(On tap) Beautiful, clear mahogany with a small, off-white head. Weak aroma of roasted malt. Rather high carbonation. Weak - very weak - notes of roasted malt. Dry finish. For a brewery that produces the world’s best Pilsener this truly was a disappointment. 190506

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Almost black with very little head. Has a sweet, caramel based aroma. It is a bit sharp in the taste, adding some citric tones to a very staying taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought it in the Trink Gut in Nordhorn for only € 0,70 a bottle, named Budvar Premium Dark Lager. Dark brown color, creamy head. Roasted malt and grass in the aroma. Coffee, roast, apple and a grassy hopbitterness in the flavor. Also caramel. Thinnish, but certainly has complexity. Very well made dunkel.

Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. Black beer with pale head. Nice malty sweet aroma leading to a big fruity flavoured beer, plenty of caamel and licquorice and fruity notes. Burnt charcoaly flavors too giving a bitter finish. Very pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Biggish offwhite creamy head takes some time to settle. Clear dark red body. Clear, faint, sweetish aroma with faint hints of roastiness. Deep, sweetish yet quite fresh taste with a light, clean roastiness and some licorice. Acidic aftertaste. Milky mouthfeel. Excellent dark lager. (On tap somewhere in Prague.)
