Vánoční Amber / Christmas Amber
On tap, ,3L glass for 56 CZK ($2.75)
31.12.2013 (New Years Eve!)

From the menu: "We have prepared in the prechristmas time for you a completly new beer. It is special semi-dark, unfiltred, bottom-fermeneted beer with bitter taste and a medium amber color with a specific hop aroma. The inspiration for the recipe were Christmas holidays. The beer was brewed of 4 type of malt and 2 type of Czech hops using the traditional method. Extract from original wort 16%. Alc. 6,5% vol."

I wasn't sure of how to enter this beer as it's kind of like a Vienna lager, but at 6.4% abv that's too strong for the category. It's also got a bit more dark-caramel maltiness to it. "Euro Strong Lager" seems to fit OK.

Notes:
+ (indicates "very good")
App: Deep russet brown with orange highlights. Fairly clear. Good retention & lacing. Aroma: Caramel with some burnt sugar + spice (alcohol?... spicy Czech hops?)
Flavor: Similar to aroma. Not spiced, but somewhat spicy. Median bitterness. Malty... finishes mostly dry. Charming.
Medium body. Crisp, not bristling. Very fine carb.
Christmas beer? Yes, suggestion of spice, but not spiced. Additional strength. Some additional malt. Rounded. Polished. Nice.
