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.

Koelschtrinker (19789) - 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
