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%.

Keg at U Slovanske Lipy. Pours Golden with a white head. Feint nods at Pilsner. Pretty poor though. Nothing inherently wrong with it but I did taste it after the Kouts which ultimately meant it was doomed.

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.

djoeye (3159) - Tromsř, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2014
Diminishing white head. Clear golden body. Mild caramel malts and a tiny plum to the nose. Tastes hops, grassy grains, bready malts. Normal on palate. Finishes with the hops in front, through bread and malts, and hops again. Continental pilsener. [50cl brown btl 5.3%abv l3° BB28.08.14]

adster (632) - HUNGARY - AUG 31, 2014
Erőteljes élesztős, kissé éles karakterű, közepes testességű, markáns komlós utóízű, összességében azonban némiképp visszafogottabb ízvilággal rendelkező, mégis kellemes ital.
