COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prémiový tmavý ležák doplňuje tradiční nabídku piva z pivovaru Budějovický Budvar, n. p. od roku 2004. Je vyroben stejným postupem jako originální světlý ležák, za použití nejvybranějšího žateckého chmele, moravského sladu, vody čerpané ze 300 m hlubokých artéských studní a tří druhů speciálních barevných ječných sladů: mnichovského, karamelového a praženého.

Charakterizuje jej výrazně tmavá barva, suchá, jemně hořká karamelová chuť bez dominance sladkosti. Vůně je delikátní po praženém sladu.

floydian1 (1387) - FNQ, Australia, - JUL 6, 2011
500ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Dark brown pour with a medium beige head. Nose is toasted malts with caramel and coffee notes. Flavour is sweet malts with a slight bitter finish. Easily drinkable with a low carbonation and a light-medium body. A bit too sweet for my liking.

Davros (2884) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2011
Pours dark brown, almost black, with a large lasting head. Nose shows lots of rich dark malt with nutty notes, chocolate, cola and spicy hops. Similar flavours, lots of nutty and bready malt with cocoa underneath. A bit cloying. Finishes with a mild roasty bitterness. Carbonation is a bit full on, body feels a bit watery.

peermac (59) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2011
Fra tapp pĺ John Bull i Aalborg. Řlet ser innbydende ut, og smaker ikke ille! Det er et tydelig brent-preg, men lite maltsřdme igjen. Relativt kort. En behagelig řl uten de helt store noen veier.

Koelschtrinker (18072) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Sehr würziger Geruch mit deutlichem Karamalmalz Ton. Leichtsüßer Antrunk, der direkt von einem leicht bitteren Aroma verdrängt wird. Auch beim malzigen Teil des Bieres ist eine übergeordnete Bitterkeit vorhanden. Schom im Mittelteil kommt eine Hopfigkeit dazu, die aber nicht besonders stark erscheint, genau wie das ganze Bier. Das soll nicht heißen, es wäre ein wirklich mildes Bier, aber wirklich kräftig ist es nicht. Süffiges Bier mit ansprechender röstmalzigen Note. Test vom 30.1.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,13,13,12,13 - 12,70

AshtonMcCobb (5646) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 19, 2011
50cl bottle. Pours opaque black with a good head, most of which disappears quickly. The nose has chocolate and some smokiness. The taste has lots of chocolate and maybe some grapes. The palate has a rich texture, quite a big structure and it is quite clean. Overall, a very rich but balanced beer. Why do they have to put ’budweiser’ on the bottle? It doesn’t make sense.

tmrmwel (1867) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark brown, with a creamy head quickly receding head. The aroma is very pleasant but not overpowering, with sweet caramel malt, light notes of smoke and a very light hint of the saaz hops in use. Flavour is of sweet, lightly roasted malts and some smoke that sticks in the finish.

Threepwood (107) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2011
Light tan head, fades quickly, over a dark mahogany beer. Smells predominantly of the malts, toastiness with chocolate and caramel but there is also some spice there from the hops. Medium body with up front flavours from the hops dominating with the sweeter malt flavour showing up later. Nice easy drinking beer, I’d buy it again.

esp0r (2774) - NORWAY - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown, big tanned head. Smells of smoke, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is smokey with hints of tar. Medium malty. Small amounts of sweetness. Good dry feel. Finish is well bitter with hops.

kwik-lime (1747) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2011
Nice balance, some sweetness and a strong hint of liquorice. Goes down easily, not overly complex but certainly a good beer.

davidm (2069) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Bottle 500ml. Great, well balanced dunkel. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, and coffee. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Dark brown with a frothy head.
