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!

Really interesting taste, not just lager. Full body, some sweetness, without real bitterness

on tap at the brewery pours amber, tall light tan head. Toasted malt, bready nose. Carmel malt, earthyness(oak) and sweet carmel sugar flavors. Ends lightly spiced. Creamy mouth, low carbonation. Excellent.

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.

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

On tap @ U Medvidku Brewery, Prague, Czech Republic Nice head and aroma. A lot of tase. One of the best I had during my visit in Prague

Jamedra (722) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 17, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2013 Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je příjemně znát po chmelu a sladkých banánech, v pozadí je také znát pomeranč. Pěna je nízká, hrubší konzistence, lehce zlatohnědé barvy a držící. Barva samotného piva je světlejší opálová. Celkově pivo vzbuzuje příjemný dojem. Chuťově má pivo příjemný, ořechově hořký střed, který postupně nabírá na síle, sladký okraj připomínající švestkové pyré a klidný finiš s rychlím spádem který po sobě zanechává jen lehkou stopu v podobě vláčné hořkosti. Toto pivo je opravdu delikátní a originální, dobře pitelné a zároveň si člověk pochutná na jeho svérázné chuti.
