From tap @ Modrý Abbé. Good looking - like me - clear and golden. Has an odd taste though - like medicine or something.

Tap @ Modrý Abbé.
8th beer in the blindtasting.
Pours a pretty, brownish amber with a nice, small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is lightly metallic, some weak caramel and a little wet dog. High carbonation, just a tad thin. Flavour is soft, very weak metal off-flavour, but otherwise well-balanced sweetness and hoppiness.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Modry Abbe. Blind tasting No.8. Reddish amber with white head. Hoping for more with this one but i got an overwhelming vanilla note with a sweet body. Some late malty, fruity notes, but ruined by early struggle with the beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fabulously malty aroma; darker, brown-amber in colour; full bodied, nutty, malty; somewhat gassy, but subtly so; slightly sweeter aftertaste, but certainly bitter, exceptionally rich. Not too much in the bottle though
