2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite rich, sweet, little bit of grainy earthy coffee flavour. one of those beers that you can enjoy one of but wouls struggle on the 2nd or the third. Too rich, too sweet, but nice complex flavours all the way though. Give it a go definately.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lightly malty, sweet background flavours of chocolate and roasted caramel. Really easy drinking with a slightly sweet aftertaste. At 3.8% in a 500ml bottle you could drink a few of these in a night without imparing your driving. Great first drink of the night as well if you are moving onto heavier Dunkels or Bocks.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is a nice "light" beer. Nice taste but lacks a bit of depth. A dark beer for hot summer days.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2005 Dark brown. Medium sized, short-lived head. Malty nose with chocolate and roast caramel. Feels and tastes weak, which of course isn’t a lie, but it does so in a very pleasant way.
I can imagine why Czech dissidents would sit up all night discussing politics with this kind of beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A beautiful burnt chocolate malt aroma as soon as you open the bottle. Low hop that is nevertheless compensated by the palate. A final sweet finish with a subtle lacing. I am impressed by the coppery colour of the beer that somehow seems to compensate for the lack of alcohol mouthfeel. This is the best midstrength beer I have tasted

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Have they mixed this beer with cola?? It's appearance is like cola, and the aroma and flavor is mainly sweet, perhaps a little burnt caramel.
