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.

corkyrory66 (849) - BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2015
Essayons une lager foncée, pour savoir s’il y a quelque chose de valable lŕ-dedans … 4 malts dans la composition : on se foule pour pas grand chose !! 4,7 % abv au compteur, on ne va pas déraper !! Couleur brun roux, ŕ la clarté nette (normal). Assez pétillante, on entend les bulles !! Mousse beige moyen, assez jolie. Arômes de malt cara, cassonade, pointe de miel brun. 1čre bouche douce, sympa, un peu style bičre d’étudiant, ŕ boire toute la nuit... Arričre-bouche tout ŕ fait aqueuse. 2čme qui ne casse pas une patte ŕ une mouche, c’est gentillet. Arričre-bouche sans ambition : un peu de sucre, un peu de malt. 3čme avec un peu de malt grillé, pointe de fumée (sűrement la cigarette de l’étudiant ŕ côté). Arričre-bouche quelconque. Longueur qui descend constamment (normal). Alcool inopérant sur l’ensemble (męme sur mon voisin). Finale ridicule. CONCLUSION : une lager parmi d’autres, d’une banalité sans limite.

rayaron (613) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle 0.5l. Deep red with medium beige head. Sweetish aroma of prune and date honey. Flavor of dried fruits, prune and carob, mild bitterness and some spiciness, a bit salty, semi-dry finish. Lively carbonation, light to medium-bodied.

ContemplateBeer (1683) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Aroma: Tootsie roll chocolate, caramel, light roast, slight skunk. Appearance: Ruby dark brown with a foamy tan head that fades into a skin. Flavor: Matches the nose, especially with tootsie roll chocolate; caramel and roast hangs back, leading to a lightly bitter finish. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, very soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: A completely average beer for the style.

TaxiDriver (1553) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. A strong malty aroma, a little bit sweet. The fizzy beige head is small with a normal duration. The body is nearly black. A nice malty taste with a light bitter finish. The body is light to medium strong, dry and creamy with a normal carbonation.

Color negro, con una buena capa de espuma. Aroma ligero algo tostado. Sabor con final tostado de café. Muy bebible para una Lager.

Dark, malty and roasty...slightly sweet and a hearty brew. Somewhat like a stout. Good stuff

kajser27 (193) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 25, 2015
Dark brown colored, medium weak tan non lasting head. Aroma is of caramel, Munich malt, roasted malt and somewhat sweet coffee. Taste is moderate sweet caramel, Munich malt, roasted malt with a chocolate-toasty finish and a bit of fruit somewhere in between, low on hops and bitterness. Low to medium bodied, watery texture, medium carbonation. Can’t shake the feeling that it left a stronger impression a few years ago but I still like the bugger!

luegomeloacabo (69) - A Coruńa, SPAIN - APR 23, 2015
Czech people know how to brew awesome dunkel lagers, indeed. Excellent beer with strong toasted notes, like coffee, wich glad remains for a while after drink.
