Postupně sem budu doplňopvat piva, co jsem vypil a zapsal si, chvilku to asi bude trvat a proto k těm dříve vypitým pivům nebudou žádné "dojmy" .

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(From notes 7 Oct, 2012) Tap. Beautiful, clear amber color. Not much head, at least this time. It’s a bit sweet/malty, some herbs obviously (but what, I can’t tell). Feels watery. I tried this immediately as I saw it, knowing it is produced without hops. It was okay as a curiosity, but not something I would have again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle. amber-red. clear. nose has a bit of cardboardish-malts. or bready.. munich- like toastiness. but malty, all the less, like an oktoberfest bier. Some strangish herbalness also present. Body is medium/full. good malt flavor, some sweetness. some corn, butter. Some DMS (the butter, the corn..). Quite enjoyable. In a blind-tasting I would probably guess it as a DMS-rich dark continental lager. Czech probably. A nice experience.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl Bottle @ De Bierboom, Brugge on 4th July 2012.
Clear body with an amber hue: thin head of off-white bubbles.
Caramel and other malty aromas in the nose, some yeast hunts hidden at the back as well.
The taste was also malty caramel and on the semi-sweet side with the yeast esters not showing in the flavours within the mouth.
Medium bodied and rich enough to carry the sweetness without turning the beer into a sickly mess. My sweet tooth loved it (I even bought a bottle to bring home).
