COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Janáek opet nezklamal, pivko má riz a ani skoro není poznat, e má tolik gradu. Jemné a chutne.

MartinT (7523) - 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 (7517) - 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.

Bottled 500ml. -Clear golden coloured, medium to big white head, pleasant hoppy nose. Moderate malty, hoppy and grainy with notes of herbs. Rather bitter finish. Very good Boh. pils and the best Czech beer I’ve tried on Rujanfest.

Looks nice and golden when it pour. White head that doesn’t last. Fresh, hoppy smell with some malty notes in it. Taste is bitter and full. Lots of caramelly malt along with some honeylike sweetness that makes up for the bitterness in a good way. Both malt and hops lingers in the mouth.

Quite good beer, blond, hoppy and grainy and bitter enough. Not a surprise after yesterday party but definitely giving better feeling about a bloody life. B@H

Marko (3771) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 30, 2009
0.5l bottle at the Beershop tent at the Rujanfest in Zagreb. (thanks!)
A very pleasant surprise at the end of one extensive rating day. Poured a golden body with a big thick chalky white head. Flowery nose with some herbal hoppy notes (Saaz?). Sweet but not excessively so nice grainy malty taste with some fine herbal hopiness. Wasn’t able to go into details but this was definitely the tastiest beer I’ve had that day.

Cuso (3802) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 22, 2011
On tap at Richtar Jakub, Bratislava. Golden color with huge white head. Aroma of yeast, malt, red fruits. Fruity taste, with malt and caramel and light bitterness. Bittersweet finish. Good.

Bottle. Deep golden with a white head. Sweet malty character. Dry, bitter, grassy finish. Pretty good.
