COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Extraordinary beer made only from malt-house, water from the granite historical wells of Jihlava´s brewery and from the soft hops products. The uniqueness is given extraordinally full taste, soft malt taste and scent. Even thought the alcohol content is 8,1% its taste is ranked among classical Czech beers - nicely bitter, with the stable foam and bread-taste. Also its colour distinguishes "Jihlavský Grand" from the others - it´s honey-gold.

MartinT (7860) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2005 The Lure:
A Saaz throne is decorated with pepper, citrus zest and nourishing bread crumbs. Honey coats the backrest, this is going to be very comfortable.

The Festivities:
Oranges and other citrus fruit live in harmony with the classy bready, honeyed malt. Alcohol is very well-hidden for its size, roaming silently in the flowery hop profile. A lasting bitterness ensues but never exaggerates. Superb balance, I could drink this as easily as any well-crafted Bohemian Pils that is half its girth.

Transcendence:
True class resides in subtlely holding back your prowess unless asked for full deployment.

Pours a clear gold color with a ring of white lace. Excellent aroma of saaz hops, very fruity. Excellent flavor of saaz hops with spicy, fruity and sweet element, the finish is bitter. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture. It’s very good and I like the fact that I couldn’t feel the alcohol at all, for a 8% this is an achievement.

Bottle from Maria bottle shop in Krakow. Enjoyed at home. Pours ambet color with a nice white head. Smells sweet malty. And tastes malty with som bitterness. Suprising little alcohol taste. Very good beer.

Sigmund (5128) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 4, 2005
500 ml bottle, bought at Pivni Galerie, Prague. ABV is 8.0%. Golden colour, moderate head. Nice hoppy aroma, notes of caramel and berries. Flavour is hoppy (plenty of Saaz and probably other hops too) and moderately alcoholic (as expected from an 8% beer), but malty enough to sustain the hops and alcohol. Moderate sweetness throughout. Way ahead of most other high ABV golden lagers I’ve tasted.

seritomi (297) - HUNGARY - APR 11, 2012
Nagyon dekoratív átlátszó réz szín a hab tört fehér és nem túl életerős. Illata élesztős, kicsit fanyar és erősen édes mazsolás. A sör legalább annyira édes, mint amennyire keserű. Édesen indul majd felváltva cserélődik a két alap íze míg végül összefonódva keserédes lecsengéssel szépen fokozatosan elcsitul. Testes olajos virágos aromákkal. Nekem inkább édes vagyis nem lesz a kedvencem de jó az ital.

paulvanpelt (337) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2014
Goudblond bier, helder met witte schuimkraag. Aroma van honing, hop op de nasmaak. Zoet, maar voldoende bitter. Volle body.

motelpogo (6700) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 19, 2004
bottled. amber colour. aroma of poisonous red berries or at least my mum said they were poisonous. pretty full, some vanilla, peach and sultana flavours, but still with some pilsner character, plenty of saaz. pretty good for a czech bock, not too much alcohol presence, musky and musty

MiP (13608) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2009
Bottle, 8.0%. Almost clear copper colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is quite malty and sweet. Has a little spicy/sweet hoppiness. Sweet, but OK balanced by the alcohol.
