Erzengel (7124) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2013
Thanks to MisoW for the bottle. Shared with ThirstyBird. Nose is wood-like but nicely fresh. The beer starts malty, musty, the wood gets to the taste quickly. The mainpart is dark malt (not roasted) and wood. Some cherry-aroma possible. The aftertaste is long, not bitter, wood, malt and nearly no sweetness. --> a very interesting brew! But a bit neutral. No real outstanding aroma I think. --> 8/12/9/9

Ernest (7120) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Bottle (bought and consumed at the brewpub Nov 07, BB 12/07). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, caramel), with a note of vinegar. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation. Unbelievably bad. Here’s the story. First they brought me the wrong thing, a mug of draught Budvar. Took 10-15 minutes to get them to take that off the table and bring the Medvicku bottle. Poured it and bang, instant whiff of vinegar. Got the waiter over (who at this point was probably already irritated) and asked if it smelled normal to him. He actually drank some out of my glass, said it was fine. He got his manager to come over, also said it was fine. Ok, ok, it’s fine, I’m sorry. Vinegar is normal for this beer apparently. I didn’t drink more than a few sips, paid, and bought the X33 from the desk on the way out...and found it was almost as terrible when I got back to the hotel. Sure, it’s possible I lucked upon two bad batches of two different beers, but I still don’t like those odds.

larsga (7074) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 7, 2009
Huge offwhite lasting head. Amber body. Aroma of dried fruit and malts with milky caramel notes. Hard to work out against a background of cigarette smoke, but think I did it. Dry-sweetish honey and dried fruit taste with resiny straw and earth notes. Soft, mild mouthfeel. Fullish body. Dry wooden resiny grassy aftertaste with chalky notes. Grassy caramel taste lingers for a long time. Excellent! (0.33l bottle at U Medviku.)

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Bottle @ U Medvidku, Prague. Light to medium amber pour with long lasting fluffy head. Caramel malt & toasty aroma. Taste was caramel malt driven with light bitterness. Good beer

ogivlado (6978) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 13, 2007
Draught at U Medvidku, Praha.
Nice hazy amber coloured, lasting thick creamy head. Pleasant mild roasted malty, hoppy and slight yeasty aroma but a way too watery. Dry bitterish finish.

gyllenbock (6899) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle, gift from a buddy. (thanks Petter) A bit hazy brownish/orange with a huge head. A bit sour with malt, leather, citrus and light spices. Lively carbonation and with a medium mouthfeel. An ok one. I would like to try this fresh.

Draft at the brewpub. Lovely hoppy aroma. Chewy, grainy, sweet and sour amber beer. The freshness is very prominent. Flowery dry finish. Outstanding!
