On tap, beer no.8 at the RBESG blind tasting (Modry Abbe, Klatovy)
Poured a brownish dark amber body, a bit like bronze and a medium-small thick white head. A nice oily hop in the nose, with some maltiness. Malt, coffee, caramel, alcohol and weak hop in the taste. Not a perfect vienna, but it was nice to have it after 6 pilseners in a row.

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