A very smooth schwarzbier that pours a white head that leaves some lacing while slowly disappearing. Colour is deep dark, almost black, but not quite there. Tastes are not very clear (not for me at least). Some coffee, dry hay. Drinkability is good: leaves a fresh feeling afterwards.

750 ml bottle poured into pint glass: Deep ruby color with a frothy off-white head and some nice thick lacing. I'm surprised at how well the head settled down, given the huge cascade that ensued when poured into the bottom of the glass. Thin aroma of brown malts with a slighly off odor like wet paperboard. The flavors don't begin until the back of the tongue, on the sides, where an initial subtle hit of dark bitterness quickly subsides to a mellow sweetness. This is a lighter schwarzbier than most I've had, and as I've said, the malt character is more 'brown' than 'black'. The mouthfeel is, however, excellent in its balance. Very smooth with a medium body and low alcohol, the first sip left me feeling like I could drink this all night. Were it not that the aroma leaves something to be desired, I probably would. But as pmcadamis said, this beer would likely pair well with BBQ foods among others. Very sessionable if you're content with the aroma.

I picked this beer up at a local package store to give it a go. Not a bad beer, but nothing super special about it.

Appearance- Lovely dark red body with a very fluffy head. The head pours about 2-3 fingers and slowly tapers to about a quarter inch after four-five minutes.

Smell- Not too much of a smell to this beer. Has an airy, woody smell. Like you are in a humid redwood forest, is the best I can describe it. Pleasant, but not strong.

Taste- Very hoppy initial taste with a smooth, fresh finish. Does not have the coffee, nutty, or chocolate taste of other dark beers. The carbonation is quite high in this beer which gives a very airy after taste. Slight bite two seconds after the swallow, in a good way.

Mouthfeel- Slightly heavy initial, but dissipates into a dry feeling afterwards. Strange for a beer with such low alcohol content. The high carbonation is pleasant.

Drinkability- Feels heavy after a pint. Could probably drink 2-3 in a hour tops before feeling too full. However, it is very enjoyable and is not a quick drink kind of beer.

Overall, I enjoy the beer but its not one that I will exclusively go after or try to find. I would like to try it on tap.

I had this beer in Prague last week and enjoyed it immensely. While I admit to having had my fill of Pilsener Urquell leading up to it, and therefore being ripe for a dark beer (more my preference), I still felt the flavor and consistency were each notably positive. It had the endearing characteristic of leaving my appetite whetted for more, and I obliged happily, letting the full flavor and pleasant mouthfeel take over. I recommend this beer.

1st beer review! Gotta start somewhere so here it goes...

Krusovice Cerne 0.5 liter bottle served in a 0.5 liter mug.

Appears dark with some deep red/brown coloring, about half an inch of tan head leaving minimal lacing as I drink. Hints of carmel in the taste, light and smooth with mild carbonation. Not as complex/full as say Kostritzer, but a good beer none the less. Krusovice Cerne is easy to drink and would make a good starter beer in the schwarzbier style.
