Cool label, all kinda buffyish and evil. The beer pours a real nice copper shade with an ok head. The nose is mostly malt with some hops floating around the back. The beer to me really tastes full bodied and crisp. Considering the lack of German Vienna's in BC , this may just have to be my early Fall beer. Well balanced and true to the style, I welcome this beer to the shelves.

Tall, brown 500 ml bottle, with best before date on label: The Brewmaster's Beer. Had tasted this at a couple of tastings, and was impressed with the small sample.
Pours a brownish copper color, large foamy light tan head with good retention. Spider web of lacing looked very nice. Mild aroma of toasted malt. The flavor is well balanced with caramel malt and floral hops. The mouthfeel is dry and clean. Very smooth, refreshing and easy to drink.

From a 500 ml brown Euro bottle, nice simple yet effective design on the label (a classy kind of macabre), best before date stated as 06.10.06.

Pours out a well-carbonated burnished copper hue, large spongy cinammon toned head with decent retention. Sticky lattice-work of lacing. Mild aroma of toasted biscuit malt, some dry wafer as well--it's all about the malts here folks, as mellow as they are. The flavour has its own charm, and I mean that in a good way. It's subtle and refined. Starts with a quick dose of metallic grain, then blends seemlessly into a more biscuity caramel malt profile, finishing with a crisp grassy hop, with a lingering aftertaste of copper and herbs. The mouthfeel is surprisingly dry, almost metallically smooth, quite refreshing. I'm impressed by this stuff, it's not bombastic, but holds its own and retains its character in a refined manner, what I see as a mark of craftsmanship--to not go too far overboard just for the sake of doing so. This is some great stuff, and found first at a CO-OP liquor store to boot. Shall be picking up more of this stuff, along with some more Baron, both are good finds from this Czech brewery.

got this bottle in a trade with stephenlouis. thanks stephen!

pours a nice copper colour with a quarter inch of fairly fine head. the head drops slowly and leaves a thick ring of lace.

aroma is ok. dms and a bit of diacetyl initially. once it has had a minute to breathe there's a nice maltyness there. bread and biscuit malts. hint of smokeyness.

taste is ok. again there's that initial bit of dms, but then a nice mild bitterness and a pleasant malt body. slightly fruity.

mouthfeel is ok. decent body and the carbonation level feels right.

drinkability is ok too. a decent beer, but nothing to spectacular.

I consider this to be sort of the little brother to "Baron." I opened the bottle, and grabbed my glass. At this point, the beer decided to froth out (as opposed to the instant I opened it). Not impressed by this frothy, khaki mess. However this pours out to a nice rusty colour with a frothy head that disappates quickly but leaves some good lacing.

The smell is blah: mostly a metallic hint, and I think I can maybe sometimes detect some hops or something resembling malts.

The taste is hoppy with a dry malt body to it. Still, a bit of the rusty nails in there. Sweet, but dry at the same time. Like Baron, a definite caramel flavour in there.

Mouthfeel is good, and this is quite a nice beer to relax with.

Looks like a strong rye & water. Kinda a bright copper tan colour. Fizzy head died a quick death and became a off-white ring.

Nice aroma. Rich malts, lighty toaste with some hop spiciness.

Bit of a metallic blast and the beginning, but evens out nicely between some spicy hop and the aforemention toasted malts. Finish is dry.

Nice medium body with near spot on carbonation.

Much better than the mexican attempt at this style.

Pours a fairly deep bronze colour, with a more than adequate foamy tan head. The head slowly falls to a thin cap, but doesn't entirely go away.

Smells of caramel and grains, relatively malty aroma for a lager. Noble hops are notable in the aroma as well. A pretty appetizing smell.

Biscuits and caramel carry a fairly strong malt profile across the front of the tongue. Something fruity hits in the middle, bringing berries to mind. The finish seems very much like the only other beer I've had from this brewery, the Lobkowicz Baron, though it has been quite some time since I've had that beer. All in all it is quite pleasant.

The mouthfeel is full, almost chewy, and the carbonation is lively. Altogether it works well for this beer.

I've had this at a beerfest before and it really didn't work for me then. I'm glad I gave it another shot.

Got it from Czech R. 0,5L bottle.

A - Clear dark orange color,with darker two finger foam. Lasting couple of minutes.
S - Weak aroma of malt,nothing special.
T/M - I know that most of "Demon" named beers are Strong lagers. This is also similar in taste. Warm and bitter,low carbonation,very sweet and sticky aftertaste. Mostly caramel malt in taste.

O - Personally i do not like this type of beers. So,i will pass this one next time.
