Amber in color. Smooth nitro head. Nose was plain malt. An unassertive beer that was nitro pushed in Prague!!! In Prague??? I was blown away. Seems like blasphemy

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(On tap) Aroma is weak; hoppy and fruity. Clear, amber coloured with a lasting, off-white head. Taste is hoppy, bitter, bit sweet and slightly malty. This beer doesn’t really ’add’ something to the brews of Staropramen. Quite uninteresting. Decent brewing though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled) Light amber color with a small head. Slightly brown-sugary, aromatic-hoppy aroma with some whisky-malt hints. Quite bitter, slightly wooden and metallic flavor. Medium-bodied, low-carbonated, bitter palate. A Czech version of an English bitter - just like the Dark is a version of Guinness. Not bad at all - just not perfect, either.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2007 Bought in bottles, Prague. Benefited from little transport, i think. Overall, very clear and enjoyable. Light enough for a hot summer day, but strong enough to make tasting enjoyable.

Reddy brown in colour with a sweet toffeeish flavour and some maltiness, not too bad. (Bottle from shop, Beroun)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled from Hotel Berlin, Smichov, Prague. Light brown/amber beer, which retains a Pils-type look. Sweet toffee aroma, with a very light, sweet taste. Cereal and toffee flavours, with plenty of fizz on the tongue. This feels like a flattish lager beer (no head, no lacing), but it's better than that - there's honey and other stuff going on, and it's not sickly. Sacrifices crispness and dryness for a fuller flavour and is very cohesive.

(sampled draught at Ett Glas, Norrtälje, Sweden) Light amber with hints of brown. Big steady white head. Sweet caramel aroma with notes of spices. Flavour of caramel, toffee and herbs. Thin mouthfeel. Finish is quite spicy and hoppy.
