2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Smells nice, of caramel, nuts, and malts, but tastes clash strangely: syrupy sweet at first but fizzy and alcoholic at the end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2007 500ml bottle.
Pours a dark mahogany with a generous frothy cream head. Aroma of biscuits, nuts and malty sweetness. Tastes similar with a bit of grass and a vanilla fruity note. Not a bad feel to it. Light and medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Dry and sticky finish. Quite nice. Much better for me the second time around.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Starts with a big head on a clear, dark amber beer. Baron has a caramel/malt aroma and flavor. It's a clean beer but a bit thin with a dry finish.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I’ve always been a big fan of Czech beers...and this was no let down. You hear people talk about German lagers and Irish ales...but Czech beer seems to be short changed. I can’t think of a bad Czech beer that I’ve tried. And after drinking Baron I still feel that way. This is a great dark lager. It’s not terribly dark....but it’s good. It’s some what sweet..with a nice touch of roastiness to it. This is a very drinkable and beautiful beer. Czech beers seem to have th most animated carbonation I’ve seen....but maybe I’m just nuts. I’m sorry...but the carbonation is something special in these beers....it always amazes me. Has anyone else experienced this???? This is really a great brew though. Hail to Czech beers!!!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle to weizen glass.
Appearance: Transparent red color with an off white mocha head.
Aroma: Biscuit, cookies, crackers, a bit of caramel/brown sugar. Some spicyness and dark fruit but not much. Slight sour element.
Taste: Sweet biscuit, some slight sour rye bready flavours, elements of dark chocolate. Definitely sweeter than I expected.
Palate: Well rounded, good body though carbonation is on the low side I think.
Overall: Pretty nice beer. Didn’t expect the world but it actually is quite nice.

Deep brown in colour with a lasting frothy brown head. Chocolate, prune and citrus fruit aroma, notes of yeast. Chocolate and nutty flavours with notes of smokiness, very creamy mouthfeel and a very smooth finish. Thanks for the suggestion OKBeer.
