3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 L bottle, bbe March 2006. Clear; copper colour, very little pearling, solid off-white head, not very stable. The aroma is bitter, even slightly rancid, and sweetish (caramel), with a clear metal presence and a solvent-like (ether) note. Taste: sweetish (caramel) and round, with gentle bitterness that appears somewhere in the middle and lasts into a very long aftertaste. Metal is again present, as well as a bit of apricot. Good, filling mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber colour, bubbly lasting head, pleasant smell. Smooth, vaguely any bitterness, drinks well. Never drunk a Vienna before and I’m gonna change it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber colour. White foamy head. This one is a disappointment. I´ve expected more from this Czech brew. It´s hard to sense the aroma. Just a grassy feel. Just a little more malt in tast from the Staropramen lager.

On tap at Staropramen Brewery, Prague. Deep amber color with frothy head and good lacing. Hoppy nose but flavors of caramel, malts, and bread. A nice change from pilsners.

Golden, small head. Perfume aroma with nuts and sweet fruits. Flavor brings perfume, floral notes, nuts, and with a bitter finish. Quite a nice beer...
