A: Copper toffee with no carbonation, relatively clean filtered and a 4 finger light beige head.


S: Toffee, caramel, toast, child’s aspirin.


T: Banana, tea, astringent, hard water, dull bitter hops, a sort of glue taste.


M: Medium chewy body like water thickened by iron, little carbonation.


O: Fascinating. A Check beer based on an English style. I get the style, just some unique attributes that make me say its not your typical beer from Britain. Sort of how Coopers is somehow different because its from Australia, and some US companies have their own versions of this style. Somehow not British, but its own animal. Got in CNX, drank there too March 5th, 2015. (677 characters)

Picked up in a supermarket in Brno. The brown 33cl bottle has a long neck and a red, green and gold label featuring the depiction of a monastery above the label. The back label lists ingredients in Czech and Slovak, neither of which i can decipher. Best before 9/1/09, I opened it on 1/18/09.

Pours a clear copper-orange under a one finger beige head that settles slowly to collar and film, but leaves no trace of lace on my glass. The nose is mild, with a hint of grain and a touch of berries. The mouth is fairly thick and well-carbonated. The taste is smooth, with some sweetbread malt in the opening and clearly English hops (ruddles?) backing it up. It does in fact taste like an English pale ale, and not a bad one, either. The mild but long-lasting bitter aftertaste invites another sip, much as the best British ales do. (829 characters)

Impressive half-glass head; recedes slowly; clear copper color; leaves light lace.

Mostly malt aroma; I detect a small level of metal in the smell.

Like an English mild but far more thicker. The carbonation is very low given the richness--reminds me of a cask drawn beer. The hop level is almost imperceptible, even the finish is malty.

I think this beer could easily get lost in Britain. A great diversion from the light bodied lagers in the Czech Republic. (461 characters)

Although it is labelled as an English Pale Ale, it is rather darker than many I have had - distinctly red in colour and with a nice head.

It is very smooth with a good malty taste.

This is my wife's number 1 tipple, and although I drink it occassionally it is not one of my preferred beers from the Primator range. (320 characters)
