Obtained this bottle from the nice little beershop, Pivni Galerie, in Prague three weeks ago.
Havran seems to mean Raven according to the brewery's website, suggesting a very dark colour, I suppose. In a Weissbier glass it indeed pours a deeply dark brown hue with a very tight, almost cappucino-like, light-brownish beerhead with very good retention.
The nose is lightly toffeeish, coffeeish, with a settled note of longan-fruit and refreshingly aromatic hops.
The palate is rather light, with a flavour akin to lightly-smoked longan-fruit tea, and a (almost) licorice-like, bitter-sweet herbal aftertaste along with very mild malts in the lingering finish.
Overall this light-bodied beer offers a soft palate and is averagely flavoursome for its low alcoholic strength. Quite nice dark lager, though prone to a lack of body and distinctive elements. Nevertheless, still thanks for your kind recommendation, Sigmund!
