Pivo pro milovníky výjimečných zážitků. Spojuje jemnou hořkost chmele s ušlechtilým tónem karamelového sladu. Zvláštní svojí barvou i karamelovou chutí.

Quack-Duck (8921) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2007
It is rather unusual to find rezak beers in bottles, usually they are mixed in the pivnice/restaurant from dark and pale lager. Quite malty, flavours of roasted malt. Only lightly hopped, but very drinkable. I rather liked it.

KnutAlbert (6398) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2007
Draft in Bulgaria. A decent beer, but rather on the sweet side. I wish someone could brew more well hopped dark lagers!

pivnizub (9521) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2006
Bottle: Amber coloured, small, but stable off-white head; sweet (dark-) malty nose with a touch of toasted malt and a metallic tinge; mild sweetish-bitter flavour, light bodied; delicate malty-bitter finish. Rather unspectacular.........

A smooth slightly hoppy semi-dark Vienna-style lager. Nothing intense about this beer, but it has a full flavor with very little or no aftertaste.

Bottled. Mine was called Starobrno Rezak on the label. Cookie malt aroma. Malty, sweet, slightly caramelly taste. Mildly bitter finish. Nice polotmave.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2004 An excellent, if far to little known Czech brew. A bit like the town it is from - Brno is a great alternative to Prague just as StaroBrno is a great alternative to Staropramen! Both are a bit more laid back and sleepy, with a rustic tinge. just another good, simple czech lager. Highly recommended

bierkoning (11528) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2003
Brought to me by a colleague (thanks Wim) from Brno. Starobrno Cerne on the label, 3,8% alcohol. Thick creamy head that you can almost cut with a knife. Malty aroma and flavor: caramel, cherry and a hint of smokiness. Rather thin. Toasty bitter aftertaste. Just a hint of sourness coming through. Lovely beer with a lot of flavor for its modest strenght.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - JUL 14, 2003
A good Czech dunkel. Dark amber colour, good head. Chocolate and raisins in the aroma. The flavour is quite sweet (Chocolate and caramel) and fruity (raisins and plums). The finish is slightly hoppy and smoked.
