2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Colour is slightly lighter than a lager. Taste is a bit sweet/sour with a weak body and carbonation to support it, dissapointing for a czech beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
the liquid is of a dark brown colour and pours a thin silky head that keeps it’s form for a relatively long time. looks like a nice intact dark lager. aromas of rye and even chocolate are present. a very enjoyable sweet taste and aftertaste make it a surprisingly whole experience. there isn’t too much to this beer to talk about, but what there is, it is very nicely done. there is very little variety in taste and aroma, but the full experience is so intact that it delivers what it says it will; a very honest beer. what i like about this beer is that it is so easy to drink and responds well to the temperature you drink it at. works very well even when it’s very cooled down. this is definitely one of my favourite standard dark czech lagers with it’s strong inner balance and identity.

Can. Lots of light brown thin head. Color is dark brown and clear. Faint aroma with malty dark sugar. Taste is dominated with caramellized malts and dark syrup. Still quite light. Very drinkable yet single dimensional and simple.

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.

Bottle in Russia. Dark brown in color with roasted notes both within the aroma and the taste. Also hints of sweetness from fruit and toffee flavors. Best beer I had while in Russia

Bottled many times, on tap once (so far:P) I guess the bottled ones were generally much better than the tapped one I had today but anyway - drinkable but average beer. way to wattery.

on tap - Prague. My beer of preference during my stay in Prague. Dark ruby color, nice head. Sweet caramel taste, light body, refreshing. I found this to be an excellent session beer given the alcohol content and light - medium body.
