500ml bottle. It is a good example of a Czech ladies beer ie. a mid strength dark lager. The appearance is of a red brown cloudy liquid with a short lasting creamy off white head. Caramel malts on the nose. Palate reminded me of a caramel cafe late with a subtle bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied. Smooth and very drinkable.

On tap in Prague. Dark brown colour, beige head. Aroma of moccha, malts, caramel. Flavour is sweet, malty, caramel, moccha/coffee. Rather fullbodied for such a light beer, but a bit too sweet for me.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not bad. Highly drinkable - it goes down very easy. It has a low alcohol content of 3.8%, but doesn’t taste watery like many similar strength brews. Rather, the flavour is allowed to shine without too much alcoholic influence. A little bit sweet, but with a pleasantly dark and malty follow-through. All in all a very good beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep reddy brown, bready head. Smell is a bit metallic. Quite watery palate, but a decent enough burnt maltiness to it. Very restrained hops. A little sweet, but some samples we’ve had have been very sweet - quality control’s not their strong point. Quite drinkable, but not very exciting.
