Tap at a riverside restaurant in Cesky Krumlov. Pours copper with a large off-white head. Aroma is light fruit and roasty malt. Med body. Flavor matches aroma, but there seems to be some mild spice. Finishes towards dry. Only lightly sweet. Good.

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.

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.

bottle, bought at the brewery. Clear amber colour with a lovely red glow, medium-sized creamy beige head. Malty nose. Medium-bodied, pleasantly malty with a shy fruity touch and flavours of caramel and roasetd malt. Well-rounded by a good portion of Saaz hops, which results in a dry finish with some malty notes.
