3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2014 355ml bottle purchased and consumed in the Czech Republic. Clear amber body is capped by a modest but durable off-white head. The aroma is sweet, with light and medium toasted malts and a faint herbal-spicy hop background. Has an unexpectedly rich chocolate malt flavor, with a striking chocolate note in the excellent finish.
Palate: Creamy; excellent carbonation; medium body.
O - a super-tasty and smooth Czech amber. Highly recommended.

33cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks! Pours deep golden with a white head. Malty aroma with caramel and hints of fruits and hops. Sweet and caramelly but well balanced. Nice, but nothing special.

Amber pour with a huge creamy head that hangs around for a while. Aroma of copper and caramel. Mouth is thin. Overall this is pretty one note but much more complex than all the Pilseners in this area of CZ.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber with a rather small head. Toasted malt and Saaz hops through the nose, maybe also a subtle nuttiness. Tastewise it’s a really nice, toasted Czech pils - simple, solid bodied, quite bitter, with a malt and hops driven flavour. Nice one.

17/01 0.33 l bottle brought from Czech Rep. It poured dark golden, reddish hued body with medium sized head. Caramel aroma, touched with hops. Bitter flavor, dominated by grass and hay hops with sweet caramel and overripe fruit malt being there as well, giving an alcoholic feel. Medium bodied with sharp, almost unpleasant flavor, and alcoholic as well, no matter of such low ABV. Couldn’t like it too much.
