coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Bottles via Bonster the monster in trade. Many thanks. Pours a deep umber/copper with very little head other than the initial pour. Sweet malts prevail in both nose and body. Vanilla tones apppear at edges for me and move no further. Nutty earth tones light whisp about as well. An easy drinking medium minsu body. Creamy body dominates as the hops appear nearly at the finish...a bold move by any brewery so closely linked to the Zatec and Saaz hop regions.

Thanks to my BOM Club for this beer. Pours a clear deep-ruby color with an off-white head. Aroma of bread dough, nuts, mild fruits and a hint of spice, notably vanilla. Flavor of pale malts, with a hint of caramel, and distinct noble hops, and the same bread and mild spice as the aroma. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a mildly bitter finish. Had this beer at the brewery in Breznice, in Europe about two years ago and this brings back good memories.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Serving: 33 cl. bottle. Appearance: Reddish brown with a small, foamy, off-white head. Aroma: Light roasted malt notes, caramel, and a sharp hop note. Taste: Caramel, nuts, some roasted notes, and a slight metallic note. Some malt sweetness lingers in a medium-short finish. Palate: Medium carbonation that is pretty crisp with a medium-full body. Overall: A decent flavor profile and highly sessionable.

larsga (7497) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 7, 2009
Biggish shiny yellowish head. Dark amber body. Fruity peppery dusty aroma. Dry-sweetish banana roasty caramel taste with dusty watery grassy notes. Thin-to-mid body. Smooth mouthfeel. Lovely balance and harmony. Dry watery dusty roasty aftertaste with grainy notes. Very, very nice. About as good as a dark 14P will ever be. (0.3l draft, Pivovarsky Klub, Prague.)

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Pours a clear glowing caramel amber with a medium sudsy off-white head. Rich caramel malty aroma with subtle grassy notes. That is a very good vienna... rich sweet toffee, lovely caramel, lightly grassy, sweet but not annoying, perfect amount of back-ground hops. Great medium/full bodied mouthful, not sticky, fluffy softer fizzy abundant carbonation. This is an excellent example and very drinkable.
