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.

Bottle from brewery. Amber color with huge foamy white head. Hoppy aroma. Taste, malt, bitter hops, fruity hints, some spices in background. Nice long bitter finish. Nice stuff.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Draft at the brewpub, Summer 2011. The pour yields a lightly hazy reddish amber body with a tall, foamy, beige tinted head. Lasting a good while, the head slowly gives way to thick, broken walls of lacing. Aromas are based in moderately caramelized cereal grain, touching on some mineral character, and showing just a flash of floral hoppiness. The flavor offers up a surprising bit of crisp acidity that cuts through the caramel sugars and cereal, allowing for the floral hops to press forward and assert themselves a bit more. On the palate, a light to moderate body sports lively carbonation and the aforementioned acidic crispness on the finish. Still, there’s really not a ton going on here. It’s a decent amber lager, but it pales in comparison to others within the region.

laiti (4951) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2011
Draught @ Klasterni Pivovar Strahov. Rated on 14.7.2009
Aroma has a lot of diacetyl and butter. Flavour has butter and diacetyl too and it is kind of harsh and stinging with sweet malt and hints of metal. This is definitely not my kind of beer or then I got my sample from a bad keg or tap.

Tap at brewpub. Copper pour, beautiful frothy head. Aroma of sweet malt and good grassy hop. Flavor has a great refreshing balance and good carbonation on the palate. Very nice.

Aroma slight off notes of wet cloth , malty feel , with grainy finish.
Appearance hazed amber with large fine frothy top. Good lace.
Flavor and Palate : Fresh , soft sweet frontal malty character. This was followed by drier mid paired with fresh hop. Chewy body. Refreshing pleasant amber lager. This would be excellent if not the aroma.

CanIHave4Beers (2908) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Pours a bright orange with a big white head and some lace. The aroma is earthy and mildly malty with some nice spicy hoppiness and some rose like floral character. The flavor is bursting with bright maltiness and there is an underbelly of earthy bitterness throughout. The horehound note shows up nicely in this which makes me think Marzen. The spiciness of the hops seems to intensify as the glass goes down. The mouthfeel is a little bit sharp but also a tad thin. Very nice lager beer indeed.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Herb-malziger Antrunk mit viel CO2. Wenig hefig. Herb bleibend, das am Anfang wenig intensive Hopfenaroma nimmt etwas zu. Milder Ausklang. Insgesamt unspektakulär. 12/8/9/8//8

Klásterní Pivovar Strahov, Prága. Kissé rezes, világosbarnás szín, tetején sűrű kemény, piszkosfehér hab. Illata igazán kellemes, nagyon kicsit malátás, kekszes, és van benne egy almás, narancshéjas gyümölcsös illathalmaz, mindezek csak csalogatnak bennünket az újabb kortyok felé, nem túl erősen, ám érezhetően jelen vannak. Ízében is van az édeskés malátás alapíz körül egy vajas, kekszes karamellás édesség, majd az egész átmegy finom gyümölcsös kesernyés komlóba, megvan a kellő összhang az összetevők között. Továbbá közepesen testes, nem annyira szénsavas, száraz nedű, tehát jó nagy kortyokban tudjuk pusztítani, nagyon finom!
