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.

Quack-Duck (9164) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2008
bottle. Clear mahogany colour, medium-sized head. Fruity nose. Malty and fruity start, solid malty middle part and a slightly dry, pleasantly hoppy-aromatic finish.

FatPhil (14098) - 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.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - OCT 20, 2007
Bottle 0.5 l. Nose is mostly syrup and burnt sugar. Flavor doesn’t offer much more. A lot of metallic aftertaste. I don’t find this very appealing and it’s a bit of a disappointment after the excellent schwarzbier.

omhper (23716) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2007
Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Dark amber. Mediium bodied with lots of caramel and balanced sweetness. Chewy toffeeish malt gives well rounded mouthfeel. Finishes carefully salty and grassy. Really well balanced.

Sofajoern (146) - DENMARK - OCT 8, 2007
Amber colour with quickly diminishing head. Aroma has a strong caramel scent with a quite herblike hop note to it. Surprisingly creamy with a very good balance between hops and malts although mainly on the malty side. Quite sharp finish.

Enjoyit (3757) - Vadum, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2007
Amber of color with a beige head. An aroma of caramel, sweet apples, toffee and hint of hops. A flavor with caramel, bitter notes, sweet malt and dry finish.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2007
Cask @ JDW, have had this rate in my phone for ages, just couldn’t find the beer as it was labeled Bohemian Granat there. Deep amber with a foamy off white head. Nose of hops, malt and caramel. Hoppy and bittersweet with a sort of slimey syrupy mouthfeel.

JPDIPSO (5670) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Bright umber color with a moderate taupe head. Lightly toasted malt surrounded by a light floral scent. Somewhat sweet and simple in scent. Dry toasted malt flavors as well. Toffee and a light herbal bitterness. In a blind tasting I would have called this a typical american bock, darker and simple in most ways.

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 14, 2007
courtesy of oh6gdx - clear and bright amber-brown colour, little but firm pale beige head, some sweet toasted malts backed up by a decent aromatic hoppiness and some toffee notes; sweet and creamy mouthfeel, a late bitterness and a long finish of caramel - a good one

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2007
0.5 l bottle. Dark amber color with beige head. Sweetish aroma of toffee, caramel and toasted bread. Lots of caramel and toasted malt in flavor which gradually changes into nice chocolatey and bitter finish.
