This extraordinary beer brewed solely from Czech aromatic hops possesses a distinct gold colour, pleasant hop bouquet and full malt taste with a touch of gentle bitterness. Zámecký Lager Speciál fermenting 2 – 3 months in stock tubs of our unique rock cellar is an example of supreme art of our brewers. A specialist committee appraised its quality and the lager was awarded the “Prize of Czech Brewers 2000”.

(Bottle) Golden colour with lasting, frothy, of-white head. Malty nose with bread, toffee, toast, butterscotch, vanilla, hay and grassy hops. Malty taste with notes of bread, hay, toffee, a touch of toast and a gentle grassy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a light malt sweetness. Well balanced and tasty, classic Czech pilsner. Nice one.

brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - JUN 16, 2013
(tap) Golden, clear, with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is rather spicy, with lots of herbal hops and some cereals, a touch of honey and a piney and mineral touch. Taste is a bit sweet, with light to medium bitterness. Palate is slightly sticky. Overall a good, spicy beer reminiscent of Heller Bock-style, but lighter. Well-crafted.

Grima (2228) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2013
The beer in the glass is strong golden yellow, slightly cloudy, with a high, soapy head. It smells yeasty and sweet, subtly tart, with a lot of aroma hops, grain and bread. Starts mild malty, very bready and grainy, with plenty of aroma hops in the background. The middle part shows some sweet yeast, coupled with a lot of grain, bread and aroma hops. Goes into a hoppy-bitter finish, coupled with some caramel and toffee.

kerenmk (3621) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Pours clear golden, bubbly, no head. Malty and a little sweet aroma, some grain and laundry detergent. Bitter metallic taste, a little watery. Light body, smooth texture, sticky, sweet finish.
