Jasjin's rating

4.5
Jasjin (6) - Nevada, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Outstanding dark beer. Heavy molasses and malt flavor. Slight twist of burning sugar, chocolate and some bitterness on the aftertaste with licorice tones. Head was creamy, but not overly so. Was able to have the hard to find Grolsch popper top in Czech Republic. Easily one of the best dark beer in the Czech Republic. Purchased for 60 Krowns in super grocery store (about $1.50 US). Gotts love those currency exchanges!

Foxbush (2006) - 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
