COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Also known as Brou Czech Lager

6 km far from Nova Paka, there is a ruin of the Kumburk Castle, which was built in the early 14th century by the Markvartic family. The castle was reconstructed from time to time by various owners. In the Thirty Years War, it was devastated by the Swedes and in 1658 it was destroyed at the bidding of Emperor Leopold. The caste used to be the favourite destination of poet K. H. Macha. Kumburak is a pale lager with rich taste with velvety foam, alcohol 5%.

500ml bottle into lager glass. Bought at Mortdale lotto/bottlo. As BrouCzech Lager. Peppery, grainy nose. Some malt also. Deep golden beer, crystal clear with steady fine carbonation and thin white head. Zingy and real easy to drink. Finish is grainy and bitter with late malt. Good Pils though sweeter than most.

hrabren (772) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 30, 2016
On tap at Novopacka pivaren, Bratislava. February, 2014. Shared with lovely Anja and Tom Norman. Dark golden, small white head. Very faint malt, grain and straw aroma. To cold. Very light malty flavors, some bitterness in the finish. Soft carbonation, light body. Very light. Boring.

Herbal malty aroma. Taste is pilsnery but kind of harsh. Ingredients list sugar.feel is nice. Something not too appealing about it but okay for a swiller

En pilsner som den skal smage, den har en třr humlet smag, og en frugagtig eftersmag. Den třrre humlesmag, er en lille smule-trćagtig i det.

hawthorne00 (3416) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2015
As Brou Czech Lager. Gold getting towards amber with a white head that doesn’t last all that well. Aroma grain, some honey, mild spices. BB 4/16, but smells a bit tired. Lowish carbonation, has some body. Sweet with bread and some husks, firm bitterness with some spices and a touch of lemon. Ordinary.

promontor (102) - HUNGARY - JUN 2, 2015
0.5 l from Bohémia Sörszalon. Nice, thick head with sweetish-breadish aroma and bittersweet taste, bitterness is a bit too dry, though. Colour is a bit darker than the usual pilsner style. Balanced taste with strong malty sweetness, some caramel, too. Bitterness is dry, a bit medicin-like. Altogether a bit boring yeasty taste with occasional fresh spicy moments but usually only for seconds. Palate could be better, toostrong. Dry bitter aftertaste. Drinkable, but far from perfect.

Really weird set up for rating this beer. Not bad lager at all. Has crisp aftertaste that bites your tongue just the right amount, and leaves average lasting taste in your mouth. Pours golden color and has average white head. Carbonation is not overwhelming and very pleasant.

Jamedra (722) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 7, 2014
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je sladové, Pěna je jasně bílá, jemná, středně vysoká a pomalu mizící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť má výrazný sladový střed, přecházející do středně hořkého, držícího finiše. V ústech pivo působí průměrně, má silný říz a je vcelku dobře pitelné. Jedná se o průměrný světlý ležák.
