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.

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.

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......

(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.

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.

Bottled. Sweet, malty aroma with a hoppy background. Sweet, malty flavour. Actually, a decent and clean strong lager, but not really good.
