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.

Marko (4208) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 4, 2009
Draught at the brewpub shared with a friend - thanks. Poured a lovely murky ruby red body with a small-medium sized off white head that went away relatively slowly. Grainy, almost husky and slightly eggy malty nose. An interesting malty woody sweet taste, notes of bubblegum, light hop aftertaste. A lovely Vienna.

Skinnyviking (7595) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2009
Draught. High creamy and lasting white head. Clear golden body. Good strong barley malt aroma with grassy notes. Mild but good barley malt flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long aftertaste.

Christian (11634) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2009
hazy orange with a lasting off-white head, leaving lace. Clean malty biscuit aroma. Sweet and malty flavour with a little hops. Some bitterness in the finish. Tasted a lot like any standard amber brewpub lager, just very well made.

Dogbrick (9176) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Sample at the Eurostash tasting on 04/30/09: Bottle from the brewpub. The beer is a hazy golden-amber color with a medium thick and foamy bone white head that diminishes slowly. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Caramel malt aroma with notes of floral hops. Medium body with sweet caramel malt flavor offset by resiny and floral hops. The finish is malty with a sweetness left over. Above average overall.

on tap at the brewery, pours light amber, tall off white head. Soft hoppy nose. Sweet carmel, and assertive hoppyness in the finish. Well rounded and refreshing. Paired extremely well with the spicy goulash.
