COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Light copper/amber color, with a thin head. Semi-sweet, dried apricot aroma. The flavor is sweet, as well, and that last until the very end. Hops, malt, apricot, toffee, and maybe even a hint of anise. Mildly bitter finish. This is a pretty good beer, but it’s really not my style.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 13, 2006
A new arrival at John’s in Iowa City. The body was a light copper color with a white head. The rich aroma has carrot cake along with some ginger. There is also a hint of biscuits. The light body is lively with plenty of carbonation. The taste has some sweet carrots with some dirty potato skins. The finish has some mineral character. A decent pils that could use a little more hops.

I really enjoy the beers from this brewer. This is, however, my least favorite so far. Perhaps an old sample, but this had a touch too much butterscotch in the flavor. Aroma a bit too sweet as well. Will likely give it another try.

rlgk (10257) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2006
Nice golden color with a big white head. Hoppy aroma with grass and hay, some bready notes. Quite malty flavor with diacetyl, mixed with a nice hoppy metallic touch. Quite mild finish.

EithCubes (4818) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Bottle. Clear, deep golden with a diminishing tan head with a hint of yellow-brown. Sweet malty aroma with a good deal of perfume and notes of citrus and apple. Taste is juicy, light-bodied, but strongly grassy and grainy with a risen level of hollow bitterness. Little oily, little hoppy. Honey and a very dry finish. Rough around the edges. Thanks to pivnizub!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Clear, toasted-straw color body with gentle carbonation and a cottony, white head. Aroma of fresh and toasted malt with floral and apple notes. Flavor has tangy fruit characters and some distant floral Saaz characters plus subdued bitterness. Also has metallic note. Doesn’t please me quite like other offerings from this brewery.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2006
Pours to a clear golden yellow with some bronze highlights, along with a small white head that quickly dies. The aroma is light applejuice, vegitable, floral, and hints of bread. The taste is light apples, bread, carrot, light peppery yeast, and some bitter hops. Light bodied, medium carbonated, has a lightly sweet aftertaste with some bitter hops.

(500ml bottle) Clear apple juice body with small white head. Aroma is medium sweet, apple juice, cereal, light dough. Taste is moderately sweet, apple, some spice, grass. Watery light-medium body.

A wonderful amber/bronze colour with a large white head. A hoppy taste with a hint of fruit. Very good aftertaste with a relative sweetness.

(Bottle thanks to Eyedrinkale) Very grassy. Lots of noble hops. Crisp and slightly bitter. Some apricot and apple. Wet but not quite watery mouthfeel. Good beer for the style. Very refreshing.
