3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. BB 04/01/2013. From Cuso. Ďakujeme!
Hazy dark amber colour with small off-white head.
Sweet aroma of berries, rose hips, caramel, malt, candle wax and toffee.
The flavour is mild red berries, malt, hints of sourness, some sweetness and... yes, dryness.
Well, it’s over a month past the BB, my bad, but still it’s very strange for a Maibock. It’s not bad, far from it, but it’s just not Bock-like. It’s a strange mixture of Sour Ale and Bock.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small to medium, relatively stable yellowish head over hazed orange-brown beer. Barnyard odours, bread, very slighlty sourish. Slightly smoked flavour - not bad!- nutty. Again even so slightly sourish, nowhere disturbing. Sour-sweet eggbread. Light bodied, spritzy, slight slickness/ Long-lastiing phenolic acidity. Not bad - I wonder if the acidity is intentional, but it certainly is nice. Děkuji, Honza!
