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

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2011
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.

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.

Loads of butterscotch and some honey in both aroma and flavour.
Rather fruity too, though a bit thin.
