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 !

Sampled in Prague at the brewhouse. Thick white head and amber color. A pretty bitter brew but smooth drinking. Well wroth a try.

Glowing dark orange with a thin white head - very attractive. Nose doesn’t give me much; faint malts and soft fruits. Flavours of sweet toffee malt and nil bitterness imply a Vienna. Nothing remarkable here.

Keg at U Medvicku. Pours Browny Amber with an off white head. Nice toffee aroma. Flavour is sweet and hoppy with notes of butterscotch and pine. Very soft carbonation. Like a bitter. Very tasty and well balanced.

Bottle brought back from the brewpub in Prague.
Pours a hazed caramel color with a small white head. Aroma is Saaz hops, caramel, malt, fruits. Flavor is Saaz Bitterness, Caramel, Fruits, a light sourness, oak, grass. Not sure if the sourness was intentional or not but it wasn’t a bad feature. Good brew.

Draft at brewpub and bottle at home. Well folks, if’n yer gonna go to Prague don’t bother brining any of this back home since they seem to have a serious problem in the bottling department. Please peruse other posts on this topic. I will state that it was ok at the brewpub but other than a semi watery body and looking pretty in the glass with a nice head, it was average at best. I suppose that it doesn’t age gently in the tanks there and is quite delicate in that respect. The bottle I brought home and was shared with sloth ended up killing the lawn where it was dumped since it had soured and gotten funky. Would I be singing a diffeernt tune if it had a Belgian label on it you say? Answer: No, this was varnish. So the number rating is a division by two of my rating from the brewpub version.
