First crafted during last century this beautifully robust bronze colored lager is brewed according to its original recipe. Definitely not your ordinary pilsner, nor does it pretend to be. Made from the finest Saaz hops, Czech malts and crystal clear waters from our own natural springs located at our 500 year old castle brewery.

0.5l bottle that ogivlado got from Prague and shared with me (thanks!)
Poured a slightly darker golden body, with a small white head. Odd dry slightly gluey nose, some light cardboard and yoghurt. Ok dry bitterness in the taste, slightly herbal. Not too strong and quite boring overall... surprised me now how big the rating is... possibly much better on tap, or just was an unspectacular batch.

Tap @ Zly Casy, Prague, as Herold 14 svetly special breznice. Pours golden with a creamy white head. Sweet and a bit buttery with a lot of buiscuit notes. A bit of yeast and a lot of grassy hops. Medium and smooth body. Pleasant.

MiP (15272) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2009
Draught. Faintly roasted aroma. Clear very dark chestnut colour. Good stable tan head. The flavour starts off nicely roasted, turning malty, sweet and then spicy. Flavourful and very well balanced.

Yup, Amber to bronze in color with a full head of aged paper colored bubbles. Aromas of pre bleached wood pulp and molasses. Some hints of floral hops add to the too sweet scent. Light caramel and touch of bread dough flavors. Light herbal hops along with some grass. A touch of iron in the finish which carries into the linger that is quite dry with touches of caramel and hay. Flavors much better than the aromas, but then it did not take to much.

Fin (9590) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2007
Bottle Wetherspoons, Sheperds Bush, London, 14-04-07. Poured a nice golden colour with a slim white head. Not too much carbonation but what there was gave it a nice softness. Lacking a bit in the bitterness stakes but some nice maltiness to it, quite nice.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2007
A Sim rate (Bottle at JDW): Sweet and malty aroma with no lager bitterness. Birght golden colour. Very fizzy with steady, thin head and dribs and drabs of lace. Disappointing flavour after a sweet aroma. Bitter finish.

A non-descript, hoppyish lager from Czechoslavakia. OK, I s’pose, nowt special about this one.
