Bottle. (Thx to Papsoe) A bit hazy, golden beer with a small, white head. Quite weak on the aroma with grain, hay and malt. The same goes for the flavor, but theres some caramel to be found as well. Lightly acidic finish with some hops. Drinkable and refreshing. (070510)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle courtesy of pivnizub. Hazy amber, fine champagne bubbles, golden low head.
Caramel and butterscotch aroma, minerally notes. Sweet caramel malt base, light diacetyl - fits strangely well into the profile though, fermented apples, some roasted notes, light bitter finish. Medium to light body. Curious dunkel to say the least.

Bottle. Clear amber with an explosive head. Aroma is mildly sweet and caramel-tinged with dark or toasted malt in the fore and hops in the background. Taste is much the same, but with a hint of metallic stickiness. Dry and smooth bitter aftertaste. A bit flat. Thanks to pivnizub!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (from Pivni Galerie, Prague): Light amber coloured, huge beige head, slowly diminishing to a thin, but stable foamy layer; slightly sweetish, caramelly aroma with a very faint touch of roasted malt, some hints of hops; slightly sweetish flavour with a delicate bitterness; light sweetish-caramelly finish, becoming dryer and more bitter towards the end, a bit metallic too: A mild mixture of light and dark beer, all in all O.K..........

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chestnut amber beer; dense amberish head. Bready nose, some diacetyl. Metallic taste, diacetyl-buttery, but not overwhelming, ambrée malt, caramel, some hops in the finish. Very dry, metallic, light bodied. Not bad - and quite special : amber beer is rare in Czechia.
