Jamedra (447) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 18, 2014
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je příjemné, sladové s jemnými podtóny zrajícího sýra. Pěna je světle hnědá, jemná. středně vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je rubínová. Chuť je sladová se slabšími podtóny ovoce, má výraznější zemitý podklad a finiš je suše, výrazněji hořký. V ústech pivo působí poměrně plně, má střední říz a je dobré pitelnosti. Jedná se o velmi chutný, bitter, plné, zakulacené chuti.

500ml bottle. It is a dark amber ale with not big but very long lasting pillowy foam. Body is light or medium, taste is dry, flower and a lot of hop (medicinal?). It is good but not my type.
