UPDATED: DEC 24, 2012 Best beer ever. Tender sweetness, no bitterness at all. Notes of soft caramel and wood, only some light foam. A perfect beer for a cozy dinner or for watching tv.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(swing top bottle) Clear, bright amber colour with a big and slightly beige foamy head. Slightly draffy caramel-malty aroma with notes of herbal and slightly grassy hops, accompanied by traces of Cantuccini cookies in the background. Bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Cara-malty and slightly bready taste with rounded herbal hoppy notes; dry bitter-sweet finish with herbal hops and a tinge of cara-malt in the aftertaste. Interesting Vienna-Pilsener hybrid. 17.II.12

bottle, kindly donated by pivnizub - díky moc! Clear, deep golden colour, large white head. Slightly sourish malty nose. Medium-bodied, malty base with nice herbal hops, slightly medicinal. Spicy finish after a malt dominated middle part which also has hints of darker malts.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bügelverschlußflasche (fortunately not discovered by MoritzF!): Deep golden coloured, quite stable medium-sized white head, grainy nose with a touch of cardboard; mild to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied; shorter grainy and papery finish. A "trendy" and disappointing brew…
