I am wondering if anyone here has had a go at brewing a beer such as Velvet.

I first tasted this beer when I lived in Slovakia, and it was a treat every time I had it.

The best part was the texture. When first poured, the entire beer was very dense, creamy head. It took about 5 or so minutes for the beer to lose it's head completely, but it was intended to be drunk before that could occur :) It was so smooth, almost thick like Baileys, but a nice, bitter cinnamon/fruity flavour.

Anyone else tasted this beer? How could I go about replicating it?

It had a very similar texture to Maestro, from the Slovak Republic.

Shoobs.

I tried it during a Staropramen brewery tour in 2000. A lot better than some of the British equivalents and probably draught Guiness for that matter. However still didn't overly-impress me.

Particularly after having 2 pints of Staropramen Lager straight from the conditioning tanks. :rolleyes: Still trying to think of a beer I've tried with such a redoubtable fresh hop aroma. :beerbang:

That glass was the one that I drunk my first legal beer from :D

And it cost me exactly $1.10 for Staropramen 12.

The best thing? I am going back for 3 months at the end of the year :party:

I'm only taking a hiking backpack, wouldn't be big enough :unsure:

I'll make sure I drink enough for the both of us, however :D
