3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

Amber colour. Diacetyl nose with traces of honey. Caramelly backbone in flavour, little watery with honey here as well and a light roasty touch from dark malts. Butterscotch also detected. The finish is long. Good, yet light, bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap U Medvidku. Pale amber gold pour with rocky white foam. Intense caramel aroma, yeasty, fresh out of the oven pie crust, rather aromatic. Taste is rather caramel forward, good toast notes, ever so slight acidity. The palate is sick, very silky and smooth, perfectly drinkable. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled: Fresh malty aroma with sweetness and smoked malt. Creamy, off-white head. No carbonation, dark orange to amber color. Velvety texture. Malty flavor with light sweetness, roasted malt and smoky components. Fresh and pithy. Bitter and astringent finish. Quite nice but all in all a bit watery.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at U Medvídků, summer 2011. Pours a hazy, dark, honey amber color with a thick, frothy, eggshell tinted foam. Patchy cobweb lacing coats the glass fairly well. The aroma is based in sweet, honeyed cereal grain malt, touching also on toasted bread, cracker, dry grass, and bitter florals. For me, the cereal is overly assertive and kind of stale. The flavor is equally unimpressive, again based in dry cereal grain, drinking stale (even though I know it’s not). Bitter grasses and heavy cereal outweigh tertiary bread character. Meh. The palate drinks heavier than it should, laden with excessive sugars that the moderate carbonation cannot overcome. The grassy, grainy, cereal-heavy finish is long and unpleasant. Not my favorite...not by a longshot.
