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 brewery/restaurant in Prague. Dark amber color, pretty bitter hoppy taste and palate. Not bad but they do better ones.

KyotoLefty (8125) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 22, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Nice deep amber color, reddish, tall fine head. Fruity, light caramel aroma. Rich, fruity, clean, tasty. Low sweetness, with bread, a touch of caramel, grapes or plums, and a nice bitter finish. Almost ale-like. Just slighty chewy.

On tap at Klásterní Pivovar Strahov on 12th July 2010. Amber as described with thin decaying white head. Fascinating taste spectrum. Plenty of grassy herby hop; very delicate spice notes and some rich malt. Earthy pungency rounds off the flavour pleasantly and there is a hint of Christmas berries in the backtaste, although so slight it doesn’t cloy the beer at all. Dry finish, light texture. This is a very well-crafted beer indeed and worthy of a high mark.

rakkasan (142) - Bresso, ITALY - OCT 23, 2009
on tap - Klasterni Pivovar Strahov. Nice amber color with creamy slow diminishing head. Malty nose with a honey maly flavor with just the right touch of sweetness, nice lightly bitter finish. My favorite beer of those available at the brewpub.

Marko (4418) - 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 (8073) - 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 (11981) - 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.

Sampled at Dogbrick’s Eurostash tasting on 4.30.09. Clear amber color with a big white head. Malty aroma with some yeast. Mostly malty flavor, but there are some bitter hops in there as well. Not bad.
