Amber-brown. Thick head. Funky, like rot and sewage. Soapy, quite sewagey and a bit sour. Really poor QC here, and the barman refused to take it back or issue a refund when a member of our party pointed out how flawed the beer was. Guess if you don’t speak Czech you don’t know enough about beer to know when a beer is off. Screw this brewery.

On tap at U Medvidku. Pours cloudy amber with foamy off-white head. Nose; summer fruits - raspberry, strawberry, blackberry and sour grapefruit. Taste; yeasty, sour fruit - cherry, strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, sherbet and lime. Has a thirst-quenching tart-hoppy finish.

Wow. Had this beer and another from the brewery in the pub that is attached to U Medvikdu. This beer was so overwhelmed by diacetyl that it tasted like a liquid butterscotch candy without the sugar. Extremely disappointing, given the high quality of all other beers in Prague.
I cant believe anyone could review this beer and not notice this massive flaw. I asked the bartender if it was a bad batch, but apparently it always tastes this way. Buttered popcorn is great, but not in beer. If you want a test beer to see what diacetyl (and the failure to aerate your wort before piching yeast), this is the one.

Poured from tap.at the brewery. Amber color with a fat finger of creamy head. Malt and fruity hop bouquet on nose. Taste is sweet with a bit of hoppy citrus and grass. Finishes dry and warm. Overall not bad, but not to go out of my way for. X33 is much better.

uh, really wanted to rate this beer better, but believe it’s suffering from lack of diacetyl rest. The killer butterscotch is here. Other regards it’s pretty good: poured with a large foamy, frothy, fluffy, off white head that lasts a while and some lace. Color is a slightly hazy medium amber. Aroma is BUTTERSCOTCH, malt an thas it. Flavor and finish are like aroma; no getting around it. Luckily I have a Budvar to wash it down with. Don’t know why they do this as they have another beer, the 1466 which is really quite good. This one sleeps with the fishes. And I’m being generous as this error is so easily correctible.

Bel colore ambrato intenso, buona schiuma, aroma complesso per lo stile, risente del passaggio in legno, bella dolcezza di malto, note tostate, un tono vinoso secco che completa e pulisce; sarei molto curioso di assaggiarla alla spina, chissŕ un giorno... grazie marcot !

Bevuta al minipivovar U Medvidku di Praga; dovrebbe essere fermentata in botti di rovere, ma nell’aroma il suo passato legnoso non si avverte moltissimo. Ha un buon gusto maltoso, con un ottimo amaro finale. Ah ah che bello ora Corkscrew dovrŕ darle per forza un voto alto per educazione visto che glien’ho portato una bottiglia per ricordo

On tap at U Medvidku brewpub on 10th july 2010. Amber with frothy white head. Hoppy with citrus notes; topuch of grapefruit in the kick, light textured and fairly easy to drink given its strength. A lingering hoppy finish with lasting grapefruit. A good beer.
