3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The label says "Zlatopramen - AMBER BEER". Dark amber beer with a medium beige head. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel and a slight fruitiness. Flavor is sweet malt and toast with light bitterness (but still some sweetness as well) in the finish. Quite medium-bodied, but still slightly thin I think. Rather enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear brown with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of caramel, diacetyl, metallic hops and stale, unmalted grain. The body is a little on the light side, flavours of light stale caramel, almond, some tart somethings, and grassy hops. The finish leaves a slightly sweet/sour earthy taste. Not bad at all.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep brown. Absolutely no head at all, maybe there qwas something wrong with my bottle. The beer was almost flat too, both in carbonation and taste to my big surprise. A bit of sugar, not disturbing, almost no bitterness or other aromas.

Hints of chocolate and coffee. Some distant clean hop notes. Grainy husk flavours at first with a little chocolate and a smooth finish. Surprisingly little flavour outside a little caramelly sweetness and the husky astringency. Finishes dry grainy and with some hop bitterness.
