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”.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2004
Darker blond color; creamy head. Light malt aroma, some vegetables. Quite simple maltiness, supported by a decent hopping, with light aromas and quite strong and long. Not bad…

Golden, white head. Hoppy and somewhat sourish aroma. Hoppy bitter flavor with some perfume. Malty notes, but most of al lthis is about hops...

MiP (14562) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2007
Bottle, 5.1%. Clear golden colour, small white head. The flavour is quite citric, slightly sweet and fruity, with a cleansing amount of CO2. Good mouthfeel. Pleasant enough, just not my cup of beer.

Koelschtrinker (14073) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 30, 2011
Süffig getreidiger Antrunk mit dezenten Würznoten, die im Mittelteil steigen und dann verharren. Etwas grasig hopfig, sehr süffig und einfach harmonisch. Zum Ende herber, dazu auch getreidiger. 9/10/10/9/6/9
