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°

thewolf (11440) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Zatec brewery.
Pours deep mahogany with a nice, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lightly roasted with some sweet sugary caramel. Okayish mouthfeel, just a little thin for the ABV. Soft flavour, lightly roasted but with good caramel notes. Pretty long and lingering aftertaste with a spicy hoppiness to it.
