COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Origin of name: the name of the beer comes for the mutual cooperation between the brewery and the rock group Kern. Taste: Kern combines the classic bitterness of light beers with the sweeter caramel taste of dark beers. These characteristics are not obtained by mixing ready made beer. It obtains its taste by mixing various types of malt during the brewing process. Kern has a reddish to granite color and a pleasant hops to slightly caramel fragrance. It is produced in the attempt to satisfy every beer consumer who likes to combine light and dark beers.

Garnet-amber beer with fast gone off-white head. Rather gassy nose, but all in all - virtually absent nose... Some liquorice, as from miles away. Bit of coffee, parsley - and lots of water. Thirteenth draw from some coloured malts (I suppose). Utterly watery, just some carbonation trying to liven things up. This bottle was part of a gift - otherwise the expression " expensive coloured water" might have sprung to mind. Txs all the same, Peter!

clear amber colour with large white head. Slightly watery flavour, but quite nice. Tastes of roasted malt, malt, a little fruity. Finishes with a dry note.

Benzai (7218) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus @ weekly tasting. Clear amber to autumnal brown color, full sized decently lasting off-white head. Smell and taste malts, caramel, slightly raisins, quite surprisingly a decent bitterness. Probably the first polotmavy I will actually finish.

rosenbergh (6474) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 14, 2013
500 ml bottle. BB? From Cuso. Děkuji!
Clear coppery brown colour with a small light tan head. The aroma is malt, mild sugary sweetness, nuts and caramel. The flavour is pretty much the same. Rather dry though. Mild grassy hops there too. Not bad. Thinnish.

polotmave is one of my favourite styles but this is not a articularly good one. tasted a bit stale, though i had it on tap. a bit floury in the mouth. bland but with hints of soy and garlic

Back from a Czech Republic pub-crawl this is part of my express ratings for the “typical” Světlý 11°- (Czech light Pils), Světlý 12°+ (Czech Pils), Polotmavý (Czech Amber Lagers) and Tmavý (Czech Black Lagers). Non-typical beers will receive personalized descriptions after the express ratings.
-------- /> How: Bottle at Kralovstvi, Prague
The look: Clear dark ruby body with a short-lived beige head
To me a typical Czech Polotmavé (Czech Amber Lagers) is: Hay and biscuit wrapped in caramel. Very light fruity notes with no specific fruits giving the impression of slightly fruity caramel. Moderately sweet. Sweetness is well balanced by dry grassy hops. Body is smooth. Medium carbonation.
This one: As above but a bit dryer and less overall less tasty than average. An overall feeling of lack of freshness although I’m sure all Cerná Hora bottles at Kralovstvi are fresh.
