Pours dark brown with a smooth head. Aroma of malts and hints of syrup. Taste is smooth, watery and crisp with hints of syrup. Finish is smooth and malty with hints of syrup. Quite easy going, not that different from the regular dark kozel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells just like the bottle, to be honest, maybe a bit fresher. Has a lovely full palate, plenty of hazelnuts. Smooth and super drinkable. Pleasantly sweet bready grains. The others think I’m a juovo for enjoying this as much as I do. But it’s a bloody good fresh unfiltered lager.
