First beer we have cooked here after many years of break. Its origins reach back to Munich from the first half of the 19th century. Our St. Norbert tastes dryer and bitterer than the Munich lager. Whole malt well hopped beer, showing the Munich, caramelized and roasted malt in its taste.

on tap - Kalsterni pivovar Strahov. Dark brown with fluffy, creamy head. Coffe and caramel aroma which carried over to the flavor along with a nice hint of roasted malt. Lighter body than I expected making it very easy to drink.

On draught at the brewpub. The beer is a nearly opaque dark brown color with a medium beige head that dissipates slowly. Small patches of lacing. Roasted malt aroma with notes of coffee and hops. Medium body with a roasty character and flavors of malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Light hops are present at times too. The finish is roasty with a lingering malty aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
