thewolf (11149) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Kolding Storcenter.
Deep chestnut brown with some slight red edges. Small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is mild and malty. Some liqourice, chocolate, caramel and very light roasted notes. Highish carbonation, fair mouthfeel. Flavour is light metallic at first, caramel sweetness, roasted bitterness and some slight berry-like tartness. A slight chocolate note at the end. Fine, but the metallic notes are a bit too prominent.

OleR (4799) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2010
Bottle from Pivovarsky Klub, Praha. One finger lightly tanned head. Body is very dark brown, with ruby highlights. Ripe yellow apples and cream-caramel/toffee on the nose. Also a pleaseant scent of honey. Honey-ish malt flavor, paired with a distinct, almost sharp hop bitterness. Medium body. Grassy bitterness and light caramelly malts in the finish. Pretty good, and pretty hoppy for the style.

ogivlado (5666) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 16, 2009
On tap at II. Cseh Sörfesztivál, Budapest.
Pale brown coloured, small to medium pale beige head, dusty sugary nose. Mild roasted malty, hoppy herbal and sugary taste with weak caramel presence. A way too sweet dunkel.

Marko (3904) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 14, 2009
At the II Cseh Sörfesztivál, shared with ogivlado. Poured a murky dark red/brown body with a lasting offwhite head that went away slowly. A grainy sweet malty nose with a bit of dust. A sweet malty taste, somewhat rubbery and roasty, with a specific lemony note. Light hop bitterness, somewhat crude and some raisins. Ok but odd in a way.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - MAY 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear, chestnut red-brown, with a generous but shortlived bubbly beige head. Very "czech" aroma of lightly roasted malts, some random hops, and probably a bucketload of additives. Flavor surprisingly agreeable compared to aroma. Dominated by lightly roasted caramel malts, bitter hops, and sugar. Not very clean though. Strange sweetish tangy palate. Fairly light body, dry mouthfeel, lightish carbonation. I do wonder if I’m rating the correct beer here -- some seem to have had much more pleasant experiences of it. Meanwhile, I’m seriously considering giving up on czech beer altogether...
