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.

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

[on tap at brewpub]
Foggy golden amber with a huge tawy topping. Fresh Saaz mixed with caramel malt that almost seemed ale-like. Excellent hops flavour and bitterness balanced well with some citrusy notes and sweet pilsner malt. Unique caramel flavour for the style. Just a touch of sulfur. Hops lingers a bit, but it’s nice; moderate carbonation and medium body. I really enjoyed this beer.

Darkish, almost red, amber/brown. Big off-white head. Sour aroma of malt and old barrel. Taste is exactly the same. Not the best, but not the worst.

Thank you to MisoW for this beer! Pours a reddish brown color with a light tan head. The smell is mild cherry and must. The taste is fruit, mild woody flavor ending quite dry. Light in body and nicely carbonated. A unique & interesting beer.
