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°

Draft at one of my locals, Churchkey, in Washington DC! Whoa! Murky dark brown color, tan head, solid lacing. Aroma of chocolate biscuit and a bit of pepper. Taste starts sweep and syrupy, then only a bit of bitterness to balance. OK.
