Pivo polotmavého typu s jasnou, jantarovou barvou a mírně nahnědlou pěnou. Speciální sladkohořké chuti se dosahuje kombinací různých druhů sladů, kde obzvlášť karamelový slad určuje finální nezaměnitelnou chuť výrobku. Nižším prokvašením dostává pivo patřičnou plnost. Pivu dominuje karamelová vůně, příjemně ladící s chmelovým aromatem. Náš polotmavý Kaštan má ambice navázat na tradiční výrobu tmavého 12st. rychnovského Granátu z 30. a 40. let minulého století.

Pours a hazy and copper beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, yeast and hops with dirt and grass. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness with notes of bitterness. Overall an average beer.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2011
I do not understand these ratings. This beer was *extremely* fresh, incredibly flowery upon first smell, flowery and herby and spicy. Subtle, delikatne. The malt flavor (biscuit, bread, a little caramel) was fresh and clean, then a pronounced flavor bitterness came in and the aroma became more malty, sugary. Great beer - totally and criminally underrated. I would have this again and again in a heartbeat. Thanks to Marek and Michal for bringing it over.

(przeprowadzka z excela: 2014-07-06, Czeska Baszta) - byloby slodowo-karmelowo z niewielka acz wyczuwalna goryczka w smaku i nawet przyjemnie, gdyby nie to, ze niespecjalnie chcialem dokonczyc z uwagi na ewidentnie zepsuty czyms aromat.... to cos, to taki piwniczny zapach scierkowy, mokrych gazet, bueee.
