3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Large, creamy, off-white head. Excellent lacing. Sparkling, medium-particled, thick, dark-yellow body. Aroma: heavily malty, molasses, lightly yeasty and honey. IF: light sweetness and bitterness. FF: light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Average duration. Palate: medium body, creamy texture, lively/soft carbonation and metallic finish.
A gorgeous appearance, one of the most appealing I’ve ever seen for a Lager. It hides very well its high alcohol content. As a matter of fact, it gives quite a character to the style. Great presence of malt and good sweetness/bitterness balance, which could be a little less incisive, but I believe its high ABV is responsible for such trait. Its sweetness is similar to a Malt Liquor’s. 120s

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml bottle. Amber colour. Small white head. Hints of apple. Light on the caramel. Surprisingly little aroma. Strong malty flavours once it enters the mouth. Warming alcohol. Grainy malts with a little caramel. Sharp hop bitterness come through when swallowing. Gets a little cloying, but the body is light. Way too much alcohol in a beer this thin. Almost pointless. Try some of their other beers instead.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2009 0.5l bottle (9%) courtesy of and shared with ogivlado who brought it from ČR (thanks!).
Poured an orange body with a big, thick and lasting off white head. Grainy fruity and dusty nose, some light alcohol. The taste is pretty much alcohol with orangey sweet sticky maltiness, slightly cloying but not as much as they can get. Kinda spicy and overall not all that bad.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated 01 01 2009
Bottle brown, 500 ml, ext 21 P, contains wheat malt, Zatec hops, hops extract, sugar,
Appearance pours very deep, dark amber to cooper body, shiny, clear but with minute sediments floating in the body texture, carbonation of the body is mild, head is initially very huge, off white, head is very thick and dense in structure, slowly decreasing to medium, leaving very good lacing,
Aroma very sweet, sugary, syrupy aroma, notes of caramel, burned sugar, toffee, moderately alcoholic, nice candy, sweet dough, fresh cookies, tasty doughnut but aroma is not overly sweet, there are noticeable notes of graphit, fat Bohemian maltyness, wheat, grains, very ssertive and valuable Zatec hops, definitely chalky,
Flavour front is sticky sweet and alcoholic which is present even in the alcoholic retronasal aroma, a good beer for a dessert and to be accompained by a sweet doughnut, white chockolate or cake, full bodied, very fat malty and high in Zatec hops, livening the body texture and making it not dull, what I like about this beer is that the good quality Bohemian ingredients show of here and play a very good part, finish duration is long,
Palate body is full, texture is syrupy, carbonation on palate is rather soft, finish feel is sticky sweet from sugar with Zatec hoppy nose, slightly salty, very grainy with moderate alcoholic dryness
