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.

On tap in Prague at U Medvidku restaurant. Nice dark appearance, good head. Smell is malty with a bit of spice. Taste is a bit yeasty and malty, and finish is short. Nothing outstanding but in these parts anything with taste is appreciated. Heading back to the USA, cannot wait for my craft IPAs, stouts and porters.

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.

Výčap U Medvídku. Vôňa bylinková, cukríková. Pena biela. V chuti zvláštna umelina, cukríky, ľahko pikantné, bylinkové. V dochuti dosť cítiť alkohol a drevitosť. Stredné telo.

Bottle, gift from a buddy. (thanks Petter)
A bit hazy brownish/orange with a huge head. A bit sour with malt, leather, citrus and light spices. Lively carbonation and with a medium mouthfeel. An ok one. I would like to try this fresh.

Wow. Had this beer and another from the brewery in the pub that is attached to U Medvikdu. This beer was so overwhelmed by diacetyl that it tasted like a liquid butterscotch candy without the sugar. Extremely disappointing, given the high quality of all other beers in Prague.
I cant believe anyone could review this beer and not notice this massive flaw. I asked the bartender if it was a bad batch, but apparently it always tastes this way. Buttered popcorn is great, but not in beer. If you want a test beer to see what diacetyl (and the failure to aerate your wort before piching yeast), this is the one.

The aroma is a tad sour, the color is beautiful and rich, the taste is ok but not awesome.

On tap in brewpub in Prague. Pours a hazy golden amber with a beige head and aroma of malt and spcies. Taste is toasty, of malt, hops, spices, and some fruit, while well balanced with a medium finish. Drinkable beer to enjoy while in Prague
