0.5l bottle courtesy of and shared with ogivlado (thanks!)
Poured a dark brown-red colour with a medium sized beige head that went away slowly. Grainy nose, notes of caramel and raisins. The taste isn’t far off, being grainy, caramelly and sweetish... dark malts. Not all that hoppy...almost at all. Says it’s brewed with some herbs but there’s nothing that would reveal their presence except (in my mind) maybe for a vague, just kinda herbal chalkiness. It’s still a good dunkel or vienna, not too sweet.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5 L bottle from Pivovarsky Klub, Praha. Two fingers of dense, yellow shaded, blond head. Body is sparkling, bright ruby brown. Moderate aroma of dryish, lightly toasted malts. Some dusty and metallic hops. Taste is medium sweet, light malty, with a slight astringent accent, apperantly from the herbs added. A faint sourness and some noticable bittering hops underneath. Light to medium body strenght. Lively mouthfeel. Dryish, herbal, mild hop bitter ending.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottled) Clear, reddish amber color with almost no head. Somewhat stuffy, herby aroma with dark fruit hints. Sweet, caramely-malty, slightly roasty flavor with cherries and ashiness. Light to medium-bodied, a bit thin, quite low-carbonated palate. A bit strange brew, but not very interesting.

Czech beer that actually has some flavor. It’s a bit bitter, malty and a bit hoppy. The yeast is present as well. Decent.

Dość dobre piwo treściwe i mocno słodowe. Mało goryczki, bąbelki i gaz trochę utrudniają degustację, ale warto pokosztować to wiedeńskie w stylu piwo pochodzące z Czech

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Prague Beer Museum: Clear amber colored brew with an nicely sweet bitter taste, hints of caramel, plum and spices. Spices in an Czech small commercial beer, it is spot-on.
