3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle, dark brown colour, medium rocky mostly lasting beige head, good lacing. Moderately malt aroma of toast and bisquit with some hints of caramel, coffee and plums, moderate herbal hops. Taste is initially well-balanced with moderate intensity, turning into a moderately bitter finish with an acetic feel. Moderate to full body, oily mouthfeel, lively carbonation. A fairly solid Czech dark lager, not insanely complex but very tasty, should be great with meat.
