Bottle Wetherspoons, Sheperds Bush, London, 14-04-07. Poured a nice golden colour with a slim white head. Not too much carbonation but what there was gave it a nice softness. Lacking a bit in the bitterness stakes but some nice maltiness to it, quite nice. pivnizub (10910) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2005 Bottle (from Pivni Galerie in Prague): Deep golden colour, thin fluffy white head, long lasting; malty and also a bit fruity nose with a tinge of bitterness and some alcoholic notes; the initial full-bodied sweetness quickly moves into a dry, sharp, bitter aftertaste; robust, but not well rounded, alcohol not well hidden......Kind of unharmonic.....

(bottle) Clear & deep golden colour with a medium foamy white head. Malty aroma, slightly toasted with caramel. Full malty flavour and taste with a slight touch of citrus and a lasting bitterdry hoppy finish. MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2005

A russet/amber gown with gold highlights surprises somewhat, and is crowned by a throne of foam, with nice lacing abilities. Highly mineral effusions shock the nose, which fails to notice the grassy hops and caramel sweetness in the first few dives. Almost eggy, this aroma is very problematic and worrying.
Round caramel and honey malts surround the wise grassy, wooden hops. No sign of the terrible metallic minerals, thankfully. Interesting bitter/sweet balance is showcased in the ample body. The big-bubbled carbonation gives me the impression that the flavors aren’t that cohesive, even if the gooseberry fruitiness tries very hard to meld the sweet malt and the serious hops. I would definitely go for their regular Svetlé 12% instead of this half polotmavé/half svetlé, even if I forget about the aroma debacle.
High expectations can spoil surprises.
Rather pale copper than bronze; very good, fine & dense off-white head. Rather neutral nose, some herbal touches and human sweat. Ouch. Diacetyl and oxydized malts. Terrible impression, human sweat again. Very slightly sticky, medium bodied, feels more carbonated than it looks. Very poor - the bottle or the beer? gunnar (9923) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2010
