Pro ženy i pro muže vaří Žatecký pivovar tmavý ležák - Žatec Xantho - vskutku výjimečné pivo. Výběrem surovin a speciálním varným procesem se podařilo zvýšit obsah vysoce žádané látky zvané xanthohumol na téměř dvojnásobek. Kdo ochutná noblesní chuť tohoto černého klenotu, objeví čarovné účinky, které jsou v něm ukryty. 14.5°

Ernest (6841) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/nuts, caramel, husks), trace hops (herbs), with a light note of paper. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation. Better appearance than expected...voluminous, lasting head. Aroma is kind of plain and dull, but perhaps it’s not very fresh (they were new to the store that carried it, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t sitting in the importer’s and distributor’s warehouses for a long time). Just ok.

16.9 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a large tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, raisins and a hoppy finish. The taste is sweet malts, molasses, raisins and a slightly bitter citrus hop finish. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

500 ML bottle from the Good Food Store in Missoula. Pours dark ruby with a substantial tan head. Malty sweet aroma. Taste like malty brown sugar and a background hint of hops. Aftertaste is smooth enough. Drinkable but not really noteworthy. Still worth a try.

Deep dark amber colored with huge light brown head. Sweet aroma with sugary-caramelly notes, some grass also comes up. Medium bodied. Flavor is not so sweet with caramel still, some chocolate-roastiness comes up too. Aftertaste dries with mild hops. Convenient, but rather boring dunkel.
