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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark reddy brown, rich froth for a head. Roasty and hoppy aroma. Wickedly bitter hoppy taste fights with punchy dark burnt malt taste for your attention. Don’t get me wrong, this is a well balanced fight. Anyway neither wins until the end of the aftertaste, as the bitterness survives longer. What’s this? The burnt malt wants a rematch?...

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Beer Run, Czechvar Dark label, best buy 01.31.14, so several months out of date even though I got this a few days ago and it was also new at the retailer. Pours a dark brown color with a thin creamy tan head. Poor head retention. Skunky aroma with notes of raisin and caramel. The taste is raisin, coffee, caramel, skunky hops. Thin bodied. Could be refreshing if not shipped way out of date in a green bottle. Fail.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark mahogany with a red hue and a huge, nice and creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and caramel. The flavour has sweetness and notes of roasted malt, caramel, candy sugar and a suitable, slightly citrussy, bitterness in the finish, and at the end also slightly dry. It’s smooth, mellow and pleasant.
