Notes: Czech Dark Session Lager. A traditional Bohemian style rarely exported out of Central Europe. A session lager with the malt backbone of a Munich Dunkel and hop schedule of a Bohemian Pilsner.

16 oz can.

Deep ruby-brown color. Average-sized, frothy, off-white head with good retention. Excellent clarity.

Some nice complexity going on in the aroma. Dark bread with toffee and nuts. Really inviting, I'm loving it. More of the same in the flavor, with the dark bread and nuts coming through mixed with some toasted malt possibly? Light earthy hops wrap things up.

Body is medium-light, leaning towards thin and fizzy. It's my least favorite aspect of the beer.

Overall, this is quite enjoyable. An excellent aroma that I couldn't get enough of. I love that American brewers are getting into the traditional Czech styles. More please!

A: The beer is dark brown in color but when held up to a bright light it is clear chestnut red in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that left a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of dark malts are present in the nose - brown bread seems to stand out in particular.
T: The taste follows the smell and has some additional hints of sweetness and hints of toasted malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite malty but is very easy to drink.

Pours a light brownish copper with slightly less than a finger of head. The nose has notes of rye bread. The flavor also has a rye bread-like quality with a dry hoppy finish.

At 4.2% abv, this offering is quite sessionable.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours from the can a slightly hazy rich dark amber, 1.5" dark white head, excellent soapy lacing left behind. Nose is brown bread, light molasses, rye, caraway, celery salt; as it warms, a bit of grassy hops, but the savory quality to the aroma remains. Flavor follows with expressive rye and caraway notes, solid earthy hops, and light spice; there isn't too much sweetness from the malts here, which helps to contribute a savory flavor and a dry finish. Mouthfeel is crisp with soft carbonation. Found this one to be highly enjoyable.

Had to drink this while jaroslav halak was in net for the Bruins. Can date smudged
Pours a large foamy frothy 1+ finger off white head with good retention, frothy lacing, crystal clear amber slight auburn color, not quite dark enough

Nose is interesting, some malts, little grainy, little toasty, faint roast, hint caramel, fruity notes, light herbal hops

Taste brings more malts, grainy, toasted malt and a bit of caramel, touch of roast, fruity notes, big hops, earthy herbal spicy hops, med bitterness going to a med high spicy go bitterness on the dry finish, soft lager

Mouth is med to a bit lighter bod, soft crisp lager, med higher frothy carb

Overall this is more like Czech pilsner with a touch of toasted reddish malt, not really a Czech dark lager but still tasty

Can from the Packie,
Deep amber color with brilliant clarity and a huge frothy white head that slowly dissipates. Rich bready crackery maltiness with hints of raisin and plum with some light toasted white bread. Earthy spicy floral hops to counter. Tasty beer but seems to be missing the dark color and flavor of a Czech Dark Lager. Feels more like an amber lager or Polotmavy.

From a 16 oz. can dated b12-29-20. Sampled Jan 7, 2021.

Very attractive chestnut dark-amber pour under a modest fading light tan head.

The roasted dark malts are front and center in the aroma with a vague yeastiness and a molasses-like character. Just the finest hint of floral hops.

Medium-full mouthfeel.

The sweet malts and molasses play up big in the taste but there is a clean almost crispy finish to it that puts the bow on the package.
