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.

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 (8351) - 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.

Quack-Duck (8382) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2007
bottle from Pivní Galerie. Clear golden colour, medium-size head. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Full-bodied bitter-sweet, very malty and very hoppy at the same time, exactly how I love Bohemian 14° lagers. A shy hint of marzipan is present. Well-balanced, a lovely brew.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2004 April 2003. Johan Comenius was a radical educationalist who while bishop of the Moravian Church introduced educational ideas that later influenced Montessori and Piaget. It's a shame his name was put on such a dreadful beer. The strong bitter taste is crude, as though made from a combination of cheap, stale hops and used tea leaves. [1.3]
Aug 2004. I'm sorting through my beer collection and extracting the out of date beers. This poor bastard died in June last year. It kept being left because it was clearly a very poor beer - and, of course, the older it was getting, the less appealing it was becoming. However, drinking it now I'm quite impressed. I think 14% translates into 6% abv, but I could be wrong because this is a fairly full bodied and silky beast which has done more than merely survive. It seems to have actually improved. The strong bitterness I noticed a year ago has certainly softened. The hop flavour is not cardboardy. Mmmm. I'm actually impressed with this. Buttery. Honey notes. Herbal, spicy notes. This is like a mellow Belgian Blonde. I can feel the alcohol having an effect on my brain. This has to be more than 6%. This is very pleasant. Very enjoyable. Wonder of wonders!
