COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Original. Merlin je výjimečný ležák, který lze pro jeho velmi tmavou barvu označit za opravdu černé pivo. Náš sládek jej vaří podle speciální receptury a při jeho výrobě používá vedle tří druhů sladu, křišťálově čisté vody z hlubinného jezera a kvalitního chmele rovněž pražený ječmen. Výsledkem je magická kombinace chutí s výraznou hořkostí připomínající stout, kterou ocení každý opravdový znalec.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 17, 2012
On tap at Pivo Sörvendéglő, Budapest. Clear, reddish dark-brown color with medium, creamy, light-brown head. Roasted malty, coffee aroma with some smoky flavour. Delicious, malty beer, the hops only play a support role. Dry, light bitter taste. Creamy, light bodied, light carbonated. Smoky, coffee finish. It’s like a light stout. But it also has the typical Czeck flavours too.
