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.

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.
