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. Zmeck Lager Specil 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. Clear golden amber pour with a long-lasting creamy white head. Malty, grassy aroma has notes of honey, caramel, hay and herbs. Flavour is particularly malty with overtones of fresh bread, caramel and grain, with a hint of lemon. Creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation and a lingering mildly bitter finish. Exceptionally easy to drink, this is a rather outstanding Czech Pilsner.

Bottle. Gold with a white head that never disappears. Aroma of hay, earth, herbs. Full, creamy mouthfeel. Substantial firm grainy taste with balancing bitterness. Lingering earthy and herbal flavours. Decent beer from the malty end of Czech pils.

Koelschtrinker (16435) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 30, 2011
Sffig getreidiger Antrunk mit dezenten Wrznoten, die im Mittelteil steigen und dann verharren. Etwas grasig hopfig, sehr sffig und einfach harmonisch. Zum Ende herber, dazu auch getreidiger. 9/10/10/9/6/9

Kristall-Knig (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Danke an Frankenland fr dieses Bier. S-hopfiger Geruch. Ein wenig slicher und vor allem milder Antrunk. Dann etwas herber, aromatischer werdend. Der Abgang steigert noch ein wenig die Herbe, die insgesamt aber noch mild ist. Ganz ok. Test vom 14.11.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Damn, I think I had eaten something that colored my experience in tasting beer. This is my second beer in a row that tasted metallic. I tried to fix that by finding something else to counter that and the only thing I could find was pine flavored lozenges I got in Pilsen! Ha! Metallic flav is gone, pine is here. Anyway, poured with a small to medium sized off white head that slowly fades and some lace. Aroma is malt, hop, caramel, grain, and fresh baked bread. Flavor is.... ok all things considered. Great body and carbonation. Finish is like flavor.

Bottle from Csakajosor.hu. Poured with a nice golden yellow color and a white head. Malty aroma, with a hint of caramel. Some malty sweetness in the clear, light body. Refreshing, goes down smooth. Enjoyed it.
