oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2008
Bottled. Amber colour, small longlasting beige head. Aroma is honey, wood (oak and pine) as well as some nice sweet malty notes. Flavour is strong semi-sour wood as well as some toffee and dry bitterness. A well-balanced lovely brew.

Draft at brewpub and bottle at home. Well folks, if’n yer gonna go to Prague don’t bother brining any of this back home since they seem to have a serious problem in the bottling department. Please peruse other posts on this topic. I will state that it was ok at the brewpub but other than a semi watery body and looking pretty in the glass with a nice head, it was average at best. I suppose that it doesn’t age gently in the tanks there and is quite delicate in that respect. The bottle I brought home and was shared with sloth ended up killing the lawn where it was dumped since it had soured and gotten funky. Would I be singing a diffeernt tune if it had a Belgian label on it you say? Answer: No, this was varnish. So the number rating is a division by two of my rating from the brewpub version.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Draft at U Medviku in Prague, served in a glass mug. Dark amber colored body with a tan head. Sweet nose of diacetyl (not overbearing) and sweetened cherries and some candy sugar along with a sweet sort of base-wort malt character. Flavor doesn’t have so much sweetness, but there is more of the diacetyl noticed. Bready cracker malts and caramel, wet and oily, medium bodied. Nothing exciting.

Stew41 (1753) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2008
Glowing dark orange with a thin white head - very attractive. Nose doesn’t give me much; faint malts and soft fruits. Flavours of sweet toffee malt and nil bitterness imply a Vienna. Nothing remarkable here.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2011 Bottle. Looks really nice! Aroma is caramel, toffee and some butter. Taste is a bit sour with some nice bitterness. Really refreshing and good!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This rating is for the tap version of the beer. From this brewery I also had the X33-Beer on tap and it was simply amazing so I bought bottles and they were all very bad. THESE GUYS CANNOT BOTTLE. I suspect the low rating are because of the bottles. I didn’t try the bottle version of this beer.
In short: An amazing woody pilsner. Different and trully excellent.
How: Tap at brewpub (U Medvídků, Prague)
The look: Partly cloudy golden copper body with a large creamy beige head
In long: Nose and taste are not intense but really out of this world. Oak and wood very present and harmoniously tied to the various smooth fruity flavours of tropical fruits, citrus and even strawberries. This is the closest thing (the only thing) I found in Czech Republic that had a similar flavour profile as the Unfiltered un-pasteurized aged in wooden barrel Pilsner Urquell that we get at the end of the Pilsner brewery tour. This one was a bit sweeter with more caramel and bigger fruit profile but not enchanting. How can a brewery make such amazing beers on tap and such terrible bottles. I Medvídku beers and Skoda automobiles are two great Czech products that are just not suitable to be put in bottles.

armando629 (2415) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 5, 2008
Nice hazy amber appearance, small beige head. Aroma of caramel and some buttery malt. In the flavour i felt a little the barique taste. Nice beer from the smallest brewery of Prague. I wondering about X33...
