COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Original. Merlin je výjimečný ležák, který lze pro jeho velmi tmavou barvu označit za opravdu černé pivo. Náš sládek jej vaří podle speciální receptury a při jeho výrobě používá vedle tří druhů sladu, křišťálově čisté vody z hlubinného jezera a kvalitního chmele rovněž pražený ječmen. Výsledkem je magická kombinace chutí s výraznou hořkostí připomínající stout, kterou ocení každý opravdový znalec.

Splitenz (370) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2014
As I am not too overly fond of pilsners, some of my favorite Czech beer experiences were beers like this. A ruby beer with a roasted malt, toasted bread aroma, it tastes like well roasted malt, maybe pumpernickel, coffee, chocolate and toffee. A little watery, it goes down really well, specially alongside amazing Czech gulash or potato soup!
