An interesting beer. Very sweet and a good mix of carbonation and smoothness. Too sweet overall, I think.

Zarkam (538) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2014
500ml bottle from a local supermarket in Helsinki, Very dark reddish brown colour, large fizzy mostly diminishing off-white head, fair lacing. Aroma of dark bread, molasses, toast and a hint of coffee and floral hops. Taste is initially quite balanced but a bit on the sweet side, turning into a slightly bitter finish with a slightly astringent feel. Lively carbonation, medium body, oily texture. Passable dark lager, the aroma and flavour could be more intense and it would even be good. Didn’t like the very mild hopping either, but I can certainly understand why many people who are not into "beer" as it is known here generally like it. Probably not a bad thing to drink with some pork-related dishes.

Prague-07. Black-red colour with low head. Has some nice malt notes, but could use much more.

Quite a nice dunkel. But overall impression; nothing special. It lacks body, but has a nice head.

Can. Aroma of roasted caramalts. Taste is balanced, but really caramelly in the finish, very much reminds me of a Polish non-alcoholic beer called Karmi. Pretty ok dessert beer, this one.

Aroma: very little of that; a bit of roastiness and a whiff of honey. Appearance: black, opaque, head large, lasts for about a second. Taste: mildly sweet, marginally bitter. Palate: body pretty light; carbonation fizzy at first, quickly fizzles out; finish a little astringent, mildly sweet. Overall: if they inverted the beer to water ratio, this could probably be a nice drink. It’s still more fun than pure water but a bit too homeopathic to have any effect on the senses.

Kestral (506) - Ĺrnes, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2009
Pours dark reddish brown with a few mm’s of light brown head. Aroma is earthy, roasted notes, caramel, nuts. Flavours are more caramel, subtly roasted notes and chocolate, light grassy hops in the finish. Not much complexity, but a nice beer. Loads of flavour for the low abv, and as expected, a bit thin.

Wife tried at Lokal on first beer stop in Prague. Really great dunkel-style beer. Soft, sweet. Malty fresh delicious. Had at Easter markets and various stops during the rest of the trip. Served in a glass with a hanging handle - kind of cool.

For me it’s a classic among czech corporation-made beers. I like to buy a bottle from time to time. Everybody knows it, so needs no deScription.
