Sure didn’t taste like 6+%. Nicely bittered, some vegetable matter in the flavor, flavor is slightly sweet and moderately bitter. Very clear golden yellow, low head retention. Smells like a pils; somewhat dusty with flowers. Didn’t know it was imperial. On tap at Piwoteka Narodowa.

Jamedra (722) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 14, 2014
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma má lehký, příjemný kvasnicový nádech. Pěna je jasně bílá, nízká, jemná a nedržící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť má velmi příjemný kvasnicový nádech s sladovým podkladem. finiš je slabě hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí průměrně, má slabší říz a je dobře pitelné. Jedná se o lepší silný světlý ležák.

This special looks as any other normal pale lager at first sight. Light color and quite heavy white head. But you’re very surprised with the strong malt-sweet aroma. While tasting you can find different kind of light bitterness. From almonds at the beggining to coffee at the long end. I can only recommend this beer.

A bit watery but if I am thirsty in summer I can accept this stuff. Of course I am in Prague so I am a little bit demanding! Guys be better!

All in all a nice beer, with a bit lack of taste, but nicely balanced between sweetness and bitterness. A bit tame, too, but in general tasty and refreshing.

Bottle. Dark brown with beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, a little brown sugar and a little smoke. Sweet flavour of brown sugar and caramel ending with a nice burned, malty bitterness. Decent.
