on tap at the brewpub. pour is a medium brown with a foamy cream colored head. smells very fruity and sweet, with absolutely no hops in the profile. taste is sweet and malty, the roasts are mild and smooth. the mouthfeel is very clean and balanced, with just a hint of hops in the very tail end. i enjoyed this quite a bit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled draught at the brewpub.
Reddish amber. Rather sweet and intensely roasty with rounded, clean mouthfeel. Low-medium bitterness. A near perfect copy of Starobrno’s Cerveny Drak.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy, pale amber color. Fruity aroma (peach ? apricot ?) and candy (barley-sugar). Flavor of malt, fruits and candy. Sweet finish that leaves a chalky feeling in the mouth. Light body, soft carbonation. Special and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very interesting creamy head. This beer doesn’t hide it’s alcohol and while this can seem brutal in the beginning, it becomes warm in the finish. It has a nice malt taste. Effervescence is creamy and sirup-like. There is a taste of honey. There is also a distinct smoke taste and a small taste of melon.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice dark gold body with superb long-lasting brownish head. Its malty aroma (with some hints of honey) doesn't hide the alcool pretty well, but it is not unpleasant. The texture is lightly syrupous and the taste got some warming effect. Bitterness reveals itself in the dry final. Interesting product. Reminds me some Oktoberfest beers...

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not so different from the Vollbier actually. On tap, this appears pretty much the same color slightly more biscuity sweet while the vollbier was drier. Good, but nothing more.

Little aroma. Nice amber colour with decent white head. Rather anonymous middle of the road flavour. Nothing assertive about this beer. Not a bad beer by any means but not one of the best at this fine brewpub. On tap.
