DoctorHU (129) - UKRAINE - OCT 25, 2015
The taste is quite rich malty, with caramel notes and floral notes. Body average density. The finish is relatively short, punched him in the notes of burnt sugar and cocoa, with a slightly spicy hop bitterness of medium strength. Carbonation average, falls slowly. It is drunk with relative ease.

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2006
Bottle at Sunday Times Wine Festival, London. On the bumpf this was down as a "semi-dark beer". Not sure what that means. Looked and tasted like a Vienna to me. However, I liked it. Dark caramel/red colour with beige head. Toffee/caramel aroma. Fine in mouth, more caramel, finish is a bit sweet. Not too much hop. Good caramel/malt beer.

omhper (21867) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2007
Draught at Soldaten Svejk, Stockholm. Clear amber, very rich creamy head. Aroma of caramel with a light touch of hay-like saaz hops. Medium bodied, lightly fruity, clean rounded mouthfeel. The body is very solid for a Czech beer, but then 13° beers are not that common. Also a bit low on personality, but I guess Pivovar Náchod has grown considerably lately. Finishes with medium bitterness. A more than decent effort that I am very willing to come back to.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - APR 21, 2007
Bottle. Pours with an amber color. Aroma is more like that of an Pilsener, some musty notes and some malty notes. Flavor gets better when the beer warms up. It brings out some complexity then, with flavors of apricot, hops and dough. Body is medium, all in all not a bad beer.

Dedollewaitor (14915) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2009
Bottle @ Billa, Prague. Pours clear amber with a small lasting creamy white head. Nose is sweet of butter, toffee and buiscuit. Taste is sweet malty buiscuit with a fair amount of hops in the end. Ends dry. Medium and smooth body. Classic for its style I think!
