DruncanVeasey (7157) - NUNEATON, Top 23, 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.

MartinT (7797) - 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 Galerie Piva Praha. Clear chetsnut-amber colour, large off-white head. Malty with fruity hints, slightly hoppy. Slightly citrusy.
Earlier Rating: 2/8/2008 Total Score: 3.2
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.

Average aroma of malt with some mild farmhouse character. Pours a clear bronze color with a ring of white lace. Average flavor of malt, sweetness and again the mild farmhouse feeling. The body is medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. I like Vienna lagers, but this one didn’t do it for me.
