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.

esox (1194) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 25, 2008
Bottled. Medium head forms a nice lace and is very pale beige in colur. Liquid is beautiful mahogany brown and clear. Malty aroma is somewhat sweet and has decent hops. Also dried sweet fruits like plum or raisins and nuts. Has quite the same aromatic caramel, almost honey-like sweet elements as many brown ales. Though sweet, still quite fresh. Oily and smooth mouthfeel with increasing bitter dryness towards the finish. Enjoyably rich, "clean" and fresh overall impression.

Quack-Duck (8653) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2008

FatPhil (10992) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 14, 2008
500ml bottle (alko)
Rich red, thin head. Slightly perfumed and lagery aroma, some hops, some grains. Sweet and soft in the mouth. Plenty of sweet malts and noble hops. Malts are a little synthetic and plasticky, like a cheap German bock. Hops are a touch on the harsh side, but not quite metallic or astringent. But nearly. Too tangy to be an easy quaffer, too thin to be a sipper. Misses the mark.
