Swingtop courtesy of Ma and Pa Jenner, with accompanying t-shirt. Ruddy amber pour with a slight haze. Intensely rich, buttery caramel malty aroma with a faintly strawberryish hop background. Sickly at first, but a velvety grower. Soap, butter and caramel. A lick of twiglety yeast. Soapily bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Buttery aftertaste. Not really a fan of the style, but enjoyed this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at U Medvicku, Prague, unfiltered, 500ml. Dark amber beer with cream head. Wow, this is about the whole beer experience. To get to the Brewery you have to walk through a large restaurant where they only sell the bottled version. Walk upstairs and it is a trip to heaven, the worty brewery smell permeate the building, the beer is a dark amber and yes worty yeasty smooth unfiltered one dispensed from an unusual cupboard arrangement. It has a biscuity malt and a gentle fruitiness. A step up in class from previous Prague beers and a sign of good things to come. A beauty.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2007 courtesy of Per Samuelsson - hazy amber colour with a fast disappearing foam; solid grapefruity and malty aroma, notes of mango; medium-bodied and with a low carbonation, light but long lasting bitterness; finishes moderately dry with notes of apples - unusual and interesting though not fully exciting beer
