3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Zly Casy. Big malty aroma with honey and alcohol. Strong, sweet flaovr, with honey, rich cereals, alcohol. tries to be balanced but in the end it is unexceptional. Too sweet and heavy, rather syrupy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep-golden; white-yellow head, receding. Bit oxydated nose, autumn leaves aroma. Sweet-bitter, vanilla, grassy & just a little roasted. Well balanced! My co-taster speaks of lactose. Again a bit metallic-hops, light to medium bodied. Especially the balance impresses me, as well as the hops quality.

(bottle from pivnizub - thanks !) Clear, golden colour with a medium-sized foamy, slightly off-white head. Malty and somewhat spicy aroma with shy but aromatic hops. Soft sweet flavour, malty, slightly toasted taste, medium body, almost crispy carbonation; sweetbitter malty finish with a warming, well-integrated alcoholic note and a dense hoppy touch. Pleasant to drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from Pivni Galerie. Golden yellow, medium-size head. Bitter-sweet aroma of malt and hops. Full-bodied, quite malty and fruity with hints of alcohol. More hoppy in the finish which gives the beer a typical bitter-sweet character.

16/XI/13 - 50cl bottle @ home - BB: 16/I/14 (2013-1068) Thanks to Marie for the bottle!
Clear orange beer, small irregular off-white head, bit stable, little adhesive. Aroma: sweet malts, grains, some orange peel, honey, caramel, bit nutty, some marzipan. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet malty start, bit of orange peel, caramel, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: sweet malts, caramel, honey, orange peel, little bitter, fruity touch. Seriously, this tastes more like a Vienna or Märzen than an Imperial Pils... Pretty complex and interesting. Once more surprised about the low rating of this beer.

came in a very cool half litre wine glass. hint of absinthe in the aroma. soft, melts in the mouth but goes straight to the head. melon. like the 12 but a faint hint of metho late in the glass detracts from overall impression

Bottled 500ml. -Dark golden coloured, medium sized white head, lively carbonation, malty nose. Sweet malty, slight herbal hoppy and atypical strong alcoholic taste. Some bready notes in the finish. All in all this one has the potential.
