harrisoni (14021) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2006
Bottle at Kookfest 06. Golden, lasting white head. Crude strong alcohol lager aroma. Bit sweet in mouth. Goodish carbonation. Quite drinkable. It is very alcoholic

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2006
Bottle (Chris_o Gathering06): Golden with a white head. Sticky, sweet and mostly undrinkable. Too strong and unbalanced.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 21, 2006
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.

Sammy (8850) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2006
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.

stouby (3794) - Holbćk, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2006
Bottle, at home. Dark orange with a large beige head, fully diminishing, no lacings. Aroma heavy malty (bread, caramel), light hoppy. Flavor heavy sweet, light bitter. Medium body, creamy, soft carbonated, Heavy in alcohol. Missing some bitterness.

thewolf (11209) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2006
A nice amber colour, but not a powerful enough taste. A slight taste of hops dominated by sweetness and yeasty flavours.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2005
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.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
pivnizub (9001) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2005
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......

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2005
(bottle) Amber colour with a diminishing white foamy head. Sweet malt aroma with a hint of fruitiness. Sweet flavour, medium body, sweet malty taste with a sweet alcoholic finish. Nothing for me.

egajdzis (5385) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2005
Poured a golden color with a medium sized white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of earth, light fruit, spicy vanilla, and other sweet malts. Taste of sweet honey, abrasive alcohol, very brash, almost reminded me of a mead.
