ogivlado (7254) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 9, 2009
Bottled(500ml). -Dark golden coloured, small to medium sized white head that went away slowly, a bit lactic nose with notes of brewing cereals. Distinct alcohol presence along with obvious lack of hops. Mild bitter finish. Drinkable but one-dimensional.

0.5l bottle (7.5%) courtesy of and shared with ogivlado who brought it from ČR (thanks!).
Poured a golden body with a medium sized fluffy white head that went away slowly. A fine buttery, slightly spicy nose with notes of rice crackers. Definitely Czech. The taste is more of the same, butter, rice (in a nice way) but hit with waves of sweet malitess and some light alcohol. Some herbal notes too. Prettyy much missing aftertaste and desperately in need of hopiness (just some very light hoppy bitterness) but far from offensive, actually drinkable for the strength.

Diar (121) - SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2009
(bottle, 50 cl, 7,5%) A clear golden beer with alot of thick, white foam. the aroma was suprisingly low and the taste was very sweet with some bitterness. There was no mouthfeel at all, like water. The aftertaste had both bitterness and sweetness.

larsga (7309) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 5, 2009
Biggish offwhite shiny head. Golden body with light carbonation. Fruity honeyish earthy grassy aroma. Dry-sweetish earthy malty oranges taste with resiny grassy notes. Full-bodied. Smooth mild mouthfeel. Possibly faint alcohol heat. Dry resiny grassy oranges aftertaste. Nice, and somewhat unusual. (0.5l bottle, Pivovarsky Klub, Prague.)

rozsoma (858) - Győr, HUNGARY - MAR 24, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2010 Deep amber, almost red sparkling colour with fizzy white head. Luscious, luring aroma, then when you taste it you are blitzed. Very harshly alcoholic, leave some burning cognac taste on the palate. Nevertheless there is some fruitiness in the aroma,which turns to dry hoppiness. i describe this "aggressive" beer. it’s too strong for me, i’m knocked out.

jonas (6858) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2009
Bottle. Hay and (buttered) potato?? nose. Amber, beautiful golden cream, low carbonation. Medium to low body, hayish and bready base, herbal, rubbery and earthroot notes. Weird, nor entirely bad, but weird.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 15, 2009
Classic lager appearance with a nice white froathy head. Golden-amber body. Fruity aroma with some raisins, some vanilla and grassy hop. Not a balanced mouthfeel...Sirupy, alcoholic-liqueric body with an agressive grassy hop. Unpleasant grassy hop aftertaste.
