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.

(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.

At bootopia. Aroma was okay grassy hops. Pour was golden. Flavor was okay considering the nose to be so grassy. Palate was okay had a nice light feel to it. Overall it was okay but I won’t kill myself to get another one.

Bottle (at U Zpevacku, Prague). Pours amber and yellow body with somewhat lasting head. Warm caramel nose and flavor, with sticky fruit flavors and some hops. Alcohol is a little too present, though. I’ve had this on several different occasions and like it less each time, but the first bottle was a nice change.

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.

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Acquired from John’s in Iowa City. Poured golden with a light weight, white head. Aroma was sweet and crisp. So when I tasted I was surprised at the roundness. Slight earth flavor at the start then effective hops and stong malt. Would be a great beer in the Fall outside.

Bottle from Březnice. Week after expiration. Bronze color. Light yellow foam. Soft bitterness. Peculiar aftertaste. To be honest first Herold beer I’m little disappointed from but it’s maybe cause the bottle was already expired.
