2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ Kookfest. Strong sweetish malt and moderate alcohol. Despite not normally liking beers with lots of apparent alcohol or that are too sweet I found this quite enjoyable, although I wouldnt finish a whole bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
botlle. Slightly hazy, golden-amber, smallish crown on top. Aroma was primary of grainy character with plenty of sweet malt wrapped with alcohol. This lager had sticky malty base with strong smooth alcoholic presence. Smooth, strong lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks Radek. Works out from 21% gravity to a very strong ABV, not available in old Communist days. Lots of barley, and some wheat. Yellow, soapy head. Pale malts and other malts. Bold taste, tongue burn from alcohol and sugar and Saaz hops. A must try lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A nice amber colour, but not a powerful enough taste. A slight taste of hops dominated by sweetness and yeasty flavours.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. An amber coloured beer with a sweet, malty, creamy alcoholic aroma. The taste is heavy on the alcohol. Quite sweet, warming and headache inducing, but curiously drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Dark yellow colour, fluffy, medium sized head, quickly diminishing; shy herbal hoppy nose, some caramel and "a taste of honey";smooth, sweet malty flavour becoming dry and bitter to the end; warming; not my favourite, but all in all not so bad......
