Fromerly named as Janáček Comenius Speciál Světlé 14°.
It is a product which is characterised by the fullness, strong body and slightly mead-caramel flavouring. The merit of this beer is also its very delicate bitterness. 6.0 % alcohol vol.

omhper (21892) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2008
Bottled. Clear deep golden, small head. Soapy aroma with some apple. Sweet, fruity and medium bodied with long malty flavour and a waelth of hay. Lingering resiny bitterness. Has lost some drinkability in the process of ramping it up to 6%.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed maltiness lather a herbal hop tenacity in this sturdily-built and immensely quenching Svetlé Specialni.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-Lofty foam bobs atop the clear dark golden.
-The hoppy second half is both herbal and leafy, and lingers nicely.
-Carbonation is big-bubbled and helps to increase drinkability.
-Malts also offer bready notes.

Bottle; best before June ’08.
