COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottom fermentation, medium full and medium bitter whole malt beer. Vienna lager and Bavarian Märzen were the inspiration for its composition. The color is closer to Märzen and the bitterness closer to Vienna lager. Märzen, Czech March beer, used to be cooked in March, which is still rather cold. Nowadays we have mechanical cooling and, therefore, we cook amber all year round.

On tap at Klasterni Strahov. Slightly hazy gold pour. Malty, biscuity aroma, not really toasty like a traditional polotmave, light caramel notes. Malty, biscuity flavour, light honey, much more reminiscent of a malty svetle than an acutal polotmave. Palate is silky, smooth carbonation, smooth finish. Not inspired by Czech tradition, but still quite good.

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2013
Bernsteinfarben mit reichlich Schaum. Getreidiges Malzaroma hopfig unterlegt. Startet ungewöhnlich süß wie bayrisch Blockmalz, wird dann aber zunehmend würziger. Die Hopfenherbe ist verhalten. Solide Braukunst vom Klosterberg Prags!

ElDesmadre (1868) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 5, 2012
Draught at the brewpub. Aroma is lots of toasted bread and herbal Saaz hoppiness, plus notes of fruit and nuts. Simple yet masterfully put together. Medium body, soft, balanced, malty taste, medium bitterness and a hoppy-nutty aftertaste. Seems I have found the perfect vienna, it’s so quaffable, I would like to drink bucketloads of it.

TheCametron (1913) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 15, 2012
Keg at the Brewpub. Pours a reddy Amber with a thick White head. Aroma of sweet malt and grassy hops. Flavour is not as sweet as other Viennas. More lagery. Nice grassy Saaz hops lead to a pleasant bitter finish.

Velmi chutný pivák, točený v pivovaru strahovský klášter. Cena sice turistická a tudíž vyšší, ale stojí za to.
