3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Much more delicious than the normal Brou Czech ("Kumbruak", the pilsener). As a sidenote, how do they get to claim in their pseudonym that they are Czech Beer, all in their entirety? Hah. Very little head. Well made for mass production. Caramel flavor, but like a dry tasting caramel beer. Nice glimmering red-brown color.

[I believe this is the beer I’ve had - mine was named Slawjanskoje Lagerbier - brewed by Nova Paka and weighing in at 5% ABV and looking like a dunkel] The color is caramel and it has a fluffy white head. The aroma is like plastic and the flavor is like metal flavored plastic. Yuk.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A small sized tan head that was smooth with fine-medium sized bubbles that were mostly lasting. The body was opaque and it had lively carbonation with a brown hue. The nose was malty and some slight hop notes. The flavor was bitter and hoppy with a lingering aftertaste. The mouthfeel was creamy and smooth and this was a medium bodied beer with good lacing.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
OK, BrouCzech Dark it is. This bottled brew poured a medium head of light brown colored fine to large sized foamy mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a carbonated semi-transparent hazy body with swirling brown sediment, a brown color and a good lace. It had a mild caramel malt aroma and a vinuous tingly bubbly mouthfeel that faded in the finish leaving a brown malt aftertaste. The flavor was mild with vinuous sweet malt notes and a mild hop aftertaste. It was a nice beer but needed more of that good brown malt flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
O.K. - In the U.S., this is labelled BrouCzech Dark. Dark brown body with medium head and average lacing. Flavor is coffee candy sweet malts with some chocolate. The hops are wild - very similar to their regular lager - Big, dirty and full of pepper. By "dirty" I mean that it tastes like dirt to me, and for some reason I really enjoy that taste! Well worth the $1.25 I paid for it
