Light amber color, small creamy head. Slightly hoppy but strongly buttery, hoppy aroma - like in Czech pils! Bitterish with diacetyl, grass, alcohol, hops, some fruity notes. This is like crossover of malt liquer and Belgian tripel - yes, it is as weird as it sounds.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled (8%). Amber colour with small slightly off-white head, which leaves nice lace. Aroma is a lot of diacetyl (toffee), alcohol and some mild hints of vanillalike notes. I came to think of Urquell because of the aroma. Flavour is bigtime diacetyl, some mild fruits, alcohol and caramel. The diacetyl is so strong, it’s hard to rate the rest of it. Alcohol burns nicely in the aftertaste.

33 cL bottle, thanks to MiP. Pours slight hazy light brown/orange with a lacing white head. Alcohol heavy and barley aroma, light spice note. Flavour is sweet caramel cane sugarish with a distinct alcohol note, almost rum-like without too much thick alcohol mouthfeel. Ends with a lingering light overripe fruit note.
