A well-hopped riuby-red Czech classic, brewed using the finest Saaz hops, specially selected malts and pristine water from the brewery’s own well. This full-bodied beer shows that there is more to the Czech Republic than Pilsner.

17thfloor (2436) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Pours a clear glowing caramel amber with a medium sudsy off-white head. Rich caramel malty aroma with subtle grassy notes. That is a very good vienna... rich sweet toffee, lovely caramel, lightly grassy, sweet but not annoying, perfect amount of back-ground hops. Great medium/full bodied mouthful, not sticky, fluffy softer fizzy abundant carbonation. This is an excellent example and very drinkable.

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 7, 2009
Biggish shiny yellowish head. Dark amber body. Fruity peppery dusty aroma. Dry-sweetish banana roasty caramel taste with dusty watery grassy notes. Thin-to-mid body. Smooth mouthfeel. Lovely balance and harmony. Dry watery dusty roasty aftertaste with grainy notes. Very, very nice. About as good as a dark 14P will ever be. (0.3l draft, Pivovarsky Klub, Prague.)

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2008 Deep red-purple with a tan cream. Sappy, well-toasted and toffee malts are set against grassy, lightly citric hops. Strong toffee flavors dry into toast and light roast before a moderate bitterness and cola acidity; bright and citric aftertaste. High, fine carbonation on a slick and slightly thick body.

Balanced and enjoyable though it feels a bit compressed, muted, at times.

50 cl bottle, best before 03 June 2009.

Bottle, 5.8%. Clear dark brown colour. Light brown head. Quite roasted flavour, a little raw liquorice. Faint hint of aroma hops. Late bitterness, quite rough.
