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.

Very tasty clody; yeasty beer on tap at brepub in Prague. If you only have time for a couple of beers; skip the Bud at U Medviduku and have this

Formidable présence en bouche, rondeur malté incomparable, finale herbacée. La bičre qui me convainc qu’un jour j’irai en Tchéquie!

Swing top bottle bought @ U Medvidku. Pours tangerine gold w/ cm thick head which sticks around and some minimal lacing. Predominant aroma is honeydew melon, slightly saccharine, like cotton candy, and faint flowery hops. Rather solid mouthfeel, w/ upfront malts leading to dry, pilsnerish finish, mild yeastiness, leafy hops melding smoothly. Quite lovely and unique, made by my favorite Czech pivovar.
