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.

NordicV (1821) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2016
Gyllengul öl med ett vitt skum. En enkel tjeckisk pilsner som inte sticker ut. Viss metallisk känsla i smaken som drar ner betyget nĺgot.

Demens (160) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 23, 2016
0,5l bottle. Clear golden colour with slowly shrinking big foamy white head. Aroma: grapefruit. Very interesting. Taste: Sour and average medium bitter taste. Hop is dominating. Okey. Medium carbonation, light/medium body. Long sour/bitter finish. Again, the sour taste ruins it.

Bought a bottle in Jaromir Pub, Csengery utca, Budapest, Hungary, when opened, smells fresh, light. Taste is also light, balanced. An easy drink.

pityu (500) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 9, 2015
Bottle - Clear golden colour, large, long lofe white head. Fresh hoppy nose with some bready and grainy aromas. Taste is sweet first, then moderate fresh hop bitterness takes over, but stays balanced. Medium body and carbonation, dry hoppy finish, cirspy texture. Well rounded, decent bohemian pilsner.

SeniorZozo (1037) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle at Only Good Beer Pub Budapest. Good head, lovely clear color. Weak aroma of malt and peas. Very balanced and malty taste, a bit on the sweet side, but has some biterness in it, too. Very good lager.

JorisPPattyn (9242) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2015
Medium, just off-white head over clear, faintly copperish golden beer; lacerings. Dry, bit hoppy nose over sweeter grains & malts. Cucumber flavour, enhanced by the spritzy CO˛. Greenmalts? (could be, as the brewery uses its own floormalting). Spritzy, light. Not so bad at all, Jiri!

KyotoLefty (8924) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2015
Bottle at Klub. Deep, bright gold, clear, bubbles, medium pillowy head. Nicely malty nose, bready, fruity. Full body, sweet fruity malt, a bit heavy. Nice, but a bit too sweet. Overall, a nice special.

Russo (2006) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2015
Clear golden color with a frothy white head. Aroma is malty, hoppy and sweet notes. Flavor is hoppy and malty as the aroma, medium to high carbonation and a bitter finish. Very pleasant.
