2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Old rating: Rather okay dunkel with some light malty, coffee-notes. A bit thin on the palate but still decent enough to be drinkable. Some nice roasted notes and very typical for the style, but boring...

Roasted aroma and roasted and coffee flavour. Coffee flavour was not bad although I do not like coffee. Quite enjoyable dark lager.

Draught, twice in Bratislava. One time in pub Bastion and second time in other pub. In bastion beer was far better.
Creamy head, dark brown color. Fruity aroma, malty tones. Flavor is more malty at the beginning, but finish is hoppy. Great!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,33 bottle, poured in a plastic glass at the Řya-festival Oslo, Norway. My second try at this one. The first time I ordered it the incompetent bartender actually gave me a Staropramen lager, fairly nice too, but not what I asked for. Anyway. Medium beige creamy head, stays as a wee lid all the way to the bottom. Dark golden burnt umber colour. Fruity aroma of malt and hops, hint of apple. Lovely creamy palate, medium carbonation. Tastes of apple, gentle hint of malt and hoppy bitterness. Nice hoppy finish. Impressive beer, a fine surprise at a music festival.
