Pivovar Herold – Czech Black Lager 5.2%
This is a dark brown – black ale, with a sweet fruity aroma. It comes with a rich sweet taste, with toasted malt notes.
Herold Brewery (Waitrose Brand) – Czech Pilsner 5.0%
Waitrose supply a number of European beers under their own label, which this Czech Pilsner is an example.
The beer has a pale golden colour and a distinct toasted malt aroma. These notes carry that toasted malt into the taste along with the hop sharpness and bitterness.
This is a good pilsner with aroma and flavour unlike the major brand lagers available in the UK.
The Czech Republic is the original home of Pilsner and this brew comes from the Pivovar Herold Březnice in the Breznice Castle in Bohemia, which also houses the maltings.
