3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml Bottle from Prague Airport (60Czk):
Earthy malts and very subtle hops with a touch of spice in there as well. Chocolate & sweetness with some caramel came next & there was was very faint hint of coffee. Strong & well-balanced on the nose, very nice stuff.
Chestnut brown & a creamy, light tan head that sits nicely on top with zero movement initially & it holds well even as I worked my way down the glass, leaving a little lacing on the sides too.
Mix of chocolate and caramel with a sweet taste & subtle spice plus a nutty taste with some coffee. It mirrors the aroma & has some roasted malts, a touch of sugar & some bitterness round the drink off nicely.
Smooth, very smooth in fact and with a subtly sweet taste that hints at some spice. The body is medium & the beer has low carbonation levels that help the beer down. The finish is clean & wet with some light to medium bitterness closing things out.
I was pleasantly surprised with this one, I wasn’t expecting a whole lot going in but it was certainly a good beer & one well worth seeking out if you can find it. Very nice stuff and quite easy to drink as well, this is a beer I’d be happy to pick up again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske, 50 cl. Cola-farvet og klar, med en rřdlig kant og et lille beigefarvet skum. Sřdlig duft af mřrkt brřd, der i munden udvikler ristede malt-noter af lakrids. Vandig og let, men velbalanceret og let at drikke. Helt ok.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Look: Coca cola (slightly more red hue) with a thumb high fizzy off-white head. Fast retention, mostly diminishing, leaves a small ring. Random light lacing. Clear.
Smell: Burned caramel, light roast underneath. Also some light grassy hop. All very light and not too much fun.
Taste: Not much different. Light/medium sweet burned caramel, not the best one, very light bitterness, which doesn’t stick with you for long. Slight metallic spike near the end. Also some honey, propolis notes at start.
Mouthfeel: Light/medium sparkly body, lively carbonation - relatively fresh but kinda watery (mineral water).
Overall: Too much excitement for me, won’t try it again. It’s perfectly ok, just can’t really remember what I drank (honey and burned sugar) - probably a solid choice for a hot stupid summer day - fresh enough and not too demanding.
