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.

Bottled (BB 01/2006)
Amber color, small off-white head. Grassy hoppy aroma with toffee notes. Caramelly sweetish, malty with average hoppy bitterness in the finish. A classic example of vienna style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bitter ale-like vienna, but without any head whatsoever. Not very appealing - I’d rather have a Kilkenny.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught: Dark golden beer with a fluffy head that disappears with some nice lacing. Weak malt and fruit aroma. Some malt sweetness immediately, but heavily hopped bitter flavour making it very refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish beer, full of surprising flavors; some sweetness, but not disturbing, good carbonation and a refreshing aroma with tones of a diet christmas beer (is there such a thing?).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. The colour is pale amber; the off-white head is finger thick.
The smell is somewhat sourish and a bit burned with notes of dark rye bread, coffee with cream, and some fruity hops.
The carbonation is the usual for a dark lager.
A fruity malty note dominates the taste. Then, a growing bitterness emerges with notes of watermelon and some roasted notes. The aftertaste got metallic bitter notes and some boiled vegetables.
Overall, a Czech pils with some roasted notes. Not very exciting.
