nephirem (392) - CROATIA - DEC 18, 2016
Bottle, 0.5l. Deep ruby pour with one finger creamy beige head. Smell of malts, yeast, grains. Slight caramel. Thin body with watery texture. Medium to high carbonation, prickly on the tongue. Moderately bitter taste and mouthfeel. Aroma of malts, yeast and grains. Slightly roasted, touch of caramel. Somewhat grassy. Pleasant, not imposing, perhaps a bit watery. Regular finish, slightly metallic. Overall, quite good.

promontor (133) - HUNGARY - DEC 12, 2016
0.5l bottle from a Tesco in Czech Republic. Dark brown body with ruby hint. Dark beige foam. Aroma is moderate, mix of caramel, bit of chocolate/cocoa and yeast. Foam has bitter, roasted taste. The beer itself is moderately sweet, with hints of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate/cocoa. Occasionally some hints of red fruits, i.e. cherry. Or maybe some nuts. Also, fruits appear in the aroma around the end. Palate is OK, medium carbonation, mouthfeel is mild and fizzy at the same time, medium body, or even light. Or at least light for a 13. Moderately bitter aftertaste of the roasted type. Excitingly complex but somehow not as harmonic as the better Czech Tmaves. Good one, but this lack of harmony prevents it becaming a favourite for me.
