MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Biscuity malts discreetly lead to a spicy, wooden hop presence in this aqueous and quenching Black and Tan of their Svetlé and Tmavé.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the bronzed amber.
-A sulphury splotch distracts from the otherwise pleasant malt presence.
-Those biscuity malts expand into near-caramel sweetness at times.
-When one knows the potential quality of both their Svetlé and Tmavé, one fails to see the purpose of blending the two. They can be so good on their own.

bottle from Pivní Galerie. If one is not too distraced by the lady on the label, one finds out that this is called a ?ezaný letní ležák - a semi-dark summer lager. Clear amber colour, large and fluffy head. Very malty with hints of caramel and a tiny and shy touch of fruit and chocolate. Full-bodied and well balanced with a hoppy background in the finish.

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 12, 2011
draft. shimmering copper body with a rigid, foamy off-white head. toffee / cookie / coffee cake nose is a munich/vienna malt showcase. light touches of vanilla and a minerallic and dry body are particularly enjoyable. lingering just-sweet toffee malt finish. very good polotmavy.

Skinnyviking (8977) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2009
Draught. High creamy and long lasting off-white head. Clear dark brown body. Coffee caramel aroma. Mild and pretty watery caramel roasted malt flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a short aftertaste.

gunnar (8031) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2010
Bottle from Pivonka, Hradec Kralove. Pours a lovely clear copper with a small off-white head. Dusty malty aroma, light roasted barley. Taste is weak malty caramel, light roasted and even some smoke,moderate bitter towards the finish, lingering aftertaste- dark and hoppy, good beer.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2008 Bottle adorned with a picture of a Czech girl in her pants (see appearance rating). A promising start. Nutty sweet metallic aroma with caramel and sneaking hop leafiness. Clean shining chestnut with a lid of white suds. Caramel, nuts, slight chocolate, rust and biscuit. Finish has some hop bitterness, but too much metal. Safe, caramelised, almost tasty, and very much like a pasteurised malty English bitter. Better than expected.

Medium beige head. Clear brown body with strong carbonation. Rubbery grainy aroma with boiled water notes. Dry dusty grainy caramel taste with strawy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mealy mouthfeel. Dryish resiny rubbery dusty aftertaste with caramel and crisp rye bread notes. Minerals, too. Nice, drinkable, pleasant. (0.5l bottle from some alcohol shop in Warsaw.)
