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%.

12 oz bottle: pours light yellow in the glass with a small very bright white head. Aroma smells vaguely like bud, and tastes roughly the same. Definately not one of my favorites.

(Bottle, plastic - 1 litre, courtesy of Marduk and FatPhil, 2013122) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had plastic, sweetness and harshness. Palate was medium bodied and a bit sticky with medium carbonation. Flavours were harshness, sweetness and molten plastic. Aftertaste was harsh. Quite a horrible brew but not so bad looking.

Marduk (2658) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 23, 2013
1L plastic bottle. Dark golden color. Tiny to almost no head. Malty, candy, acetone in aroma. Molten plastic, malty, caramel in taste. That liquid is almost as bad as political promises or Miss World victory speech. Drain pour. Never ever again!

1L bottle - thanks Marduk!
Odd pale lager aroma, lots of green apple, but without the associated acidity. Wooly, some wet dog. Pale gold, brief head. Messed up vegetal taste. Rotten vegetables, some rankness that reminds me of spring onion. More wool. Odd sweetness like aspartame. Dirty. Dry chemical acrid hops. Do not want it in my mouth. Must scape tongue. True horror.

1L plastic bottle as "BrouCzech" 5.0%, redirecting here. Deep golden body but no head. Sourish aroma with faint hops. Sweet taste with lots of apples. Something is clearly wrong with this beer and also the other beer I had earlier from this brewery. Plasticky apples all over the place. Mouldy finish. It’s most likely a failed batch but since they decided to release it anyway I will rate it accordingly.

Bottle @ Pops. Pours clear golden with a off White head. Grains, paperbag, dust and vegetables. Horrible brewery.

On tap, na stojaka. Clear pale body, amazing creamy head. Aroma is clean with noble aroma. Taste is malty with balanced biterness. Pretty good pilsner, another case that shows that pourring the beer is half of the success. Body is full with high carbonation.
