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.

Tapped. Dark red colour, large beige foamy head. Malty, a bit bitterish aroma with weak hints of plum (?). Roasted flavour with hints of malt and barley. The roast grows in the finish. Not that much aftertaste.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2006
(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

Warning! Early amateur rating! Dark lager, at first the toasted malt was a bit overpowering but there is bitter chocolate and the crispness of the palate helps. A grower and ultimately quite drinkable.
