Comes in a brown Euro style bottle labled "Vanocni Special" which is Czech for Christmas special.

Beer pours a ruddy golden, with a creamy off white head. Left a thin lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell is basically malty with some subtle fruits.

This is a tasty beer. The malts dominate the beer at first, with a strong kick of fruity flavor. Apple and lemon are prevelant. They are balanced with the bitterness, and spicyness of the hops. After taste leaves some minerals.

Very smooth feel, very tasty.

A great beer, if in Prague near christmas you can buy it at Pivni Gallerie in Prague.

Reviewed from notes.

Comes in a very cool Christmas style bottle, with a nifty painted cap of the Krakonos giant.
A spectacular red/gold color, with a lacy and billowy white head. Great carbonation. Taste is a perfect mixture of hops and spice. This is the ideal pale lager taste. Nonstop drinkability. A truly excellent beer.
