6 km far from Nova Paka, there is a ruin of the Kumburk Castle, which was built in the early 14th century by the Markvartic family. The castle was reconstructed from time to time by various owners. In the Thirty Years War, it was devastated by the Swedes and in 1658 it was destroyed at the bidding of Emperor Leopold. The caste used to be the favourite destination of poet K. H. Macha. Kumburak is a pale lager with rich taste with velvety foam, alcohol 5%.

12 oz bottle: pours light yellow in the glass with a small very bright white head. Aroma smells vaguely like bud, and tastes roughly the same. Definately not one of my favorites.

gripweed57 (2854) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2017
From old tasting notes. Honey gold color. Frothy white head. Buttery malt aroma. Bittersweet malt flavor.mwell hopped finish. Very true to the Bohemian tradition.

On tap at Novopacká piváreň, Račianska. Same as the rest. I will never understand why they sale same brown water under different names.

GuideDogSaint (1748) - Xiamen, CHINA - MAR 20, 2017
500ml bottle from Merry Season, Xiamen as Brou Czech Lager. Pours clear golden brown with a white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Bitter finish.

Hopverdju (1485) - BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2016
Van ’t vat. Goudblond bier met grote romige witte schuimkraag. Geur: moutzoetig, brood en wat kruidig hoppig. Smaak: moutzoetiheid mooi in balans met de droge hopbitterheid. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Licht romig mondgevoel. Afdronk: droog, licht bitter. Voor mij één van de betere Tsjechische pilsener al zullen de meeste Tsjechen mijn mening niet delen.

MetalMurphy (765) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 29, 2016
tap @ bohémia (budapest) clear golden colour, normal body, average carbonated, nice malty, sweet, easy to drink

rozsoma (1129) - Gyõr, HUNGARY - AUG 26, 2016
Kicsit nyers, abban az értelemben mint a zöld dió. Kiforratlan mint a befőttesüveg.

teddybeer (4109) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 14, 2016
@ Nova Paka Torrevieja. Golden color, white head, medium retention. Aroma has cerealish notes with good maltiness. Flavor has a decent bitterness. Some dry mouthfeel with bittery final.

midovark (1073) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - AUG 14, 2016
On tap. Average looking pilsner, which is average in every other sense as well, including aroma and taste. Bittersweet, light bodied, softly carbonated.

TedE (1480) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2016
500ml bottle into lager glass. Bought at Mortdale lotto/bottlo. As BrouCzech Lager. Peppery, grainy nose. Some malt also. Deep golden beer, crystal clear with steady fine carbonation and thin white head. Zingy and real easy to drink. Finish is grainy and bitter with late malt. Good Pils though sweeter than most.
