pFriem Family Brewers Czech Dark Lager

What the brewers say

“Our Czech Dark Lager honors the popular Czech ‘dark beer’ with aromas of toffee and dates and notes of anise and caramel.”

What our panel thought

“Light brown in color, bright; solid, lasting head. Toasted bread, chocolate, hints of coffee, caramel, and sulfur coupled with strong, floral, Noble-hop aroma. Rich yet restrained malt flavor: toast, crust, light chocolate. Bitterness almost perfectly balanced to keep the malt in check. Super-clean. Refreshing finish. Lightly sweet malt begs for another taste. Elegant, creamy carbonation brings all the flavors together in wonderful synergy. Herbal hop flavor might be a touch strong for style, but it plays so well.”

What our editors thought

“Toffee with some pumpernickel spice on the nose, with singed bread crust and an almost floral, lavender note. Flavor is bright, big, caramel-forward without going sweet, clean, warming, and satisfying while still finishing with a crisp kick. Beautiful.”
