3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 500ml. Brown/red color with thick tan head. Average carbonation. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet caramel. A bit watery though. Nothing special, but still quite drinkable. However, not one of the best Czech Dunkels.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased this 500 ml bottle in Praha a couple of months for next to nothing and drank this past weekend in Dublin.
Pour resulted in a nice head that didn’t stay around too long on a brown copper body that looks great.
Very malty and very sweet are the first aromas that hit your nose after the pour. Some nutty flavors come through next.
The malts, nuts, and sweetness all come through on the first sip and there is a bit of coffee to it too. Goes down really smooth-full of flavor yet not too heavy so that is a nice combination. I do agree that the taste doesn’t stick around too long in the mouth and on the tongue, but the mouthfeel is great with a bit of carbonation.
I was impressed by this beer and have not had alot of this style before so I would like to try more now. I would definitely try some if I saw it here in Ireland or if I go back to Praha.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance with brown (almost black) color and medium head.
Aroma of toasted malt (small).
On the palate, the toasted malt is the main flavor.
It is a light beer, easy to drink!

It has a pleasant look about it, with a small lacy head. Quite toffeish but I agree as far as dark beers go it is quite light - but in the same token - rich. Not bad at all. cheers
