Foxbush (1979) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2017
Draft at Old Town Square The lager poured a clear brown color with an off-white head. Good head retention and no lacing. The aroma of roasted malt greets you. The medium body lager has average carbonation. The taste has some hints of dried fruit. The finish has hints of chocolate in the aftertaste. This is very balanced beer and one of the first of many enjoyed in Prague. Bernard has been a fast growing brewery in the Czech Republic
