Jamedra (716) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 9, 2013
Pípa, Pivovar Bašta, Praha. Krásné aroma které je znát po jahodách. Pěna je krémově jemná, světle moccacino barvy, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je tmavě rubínová. Chuť je velmi lehká svěží, celkově sladšího rázu, střed připomíná uzrálé jahody, okraje jsou velmi uhlazené v chuti krásně doplňují střed, finiš je jemně hořký a držící. Celkově je toto pivo opravdu parádní, vyčnívá svým unikátním vzhledem, aroma a chutí.

Christian (11983) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Cloudy amber with a firm and lasting white head. Beautiful biscuity malt aroma with herbal hops. Malty flavour, lots of fresh cereal, bread crust and toffee, a touch of red berries, and fine herbal and spicy hops. Very bitter with a long aftertaste.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2011 Tap @ Basta, Prague. Pours unclear dark ruby amber with a thick lasting creamy head and lacings. Nose is butter, buiscuit and grass. Smooth and quenching. Flavor is caramel, bread , yeast and floral hops. Extremely tasty and one of the best polotmavy’s I’ve had! Re-rating Feb-2011. 3,6-3,9. Superior!!!

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2008
UPDATED: APR 1, 2008 My Bottom Line:
A caramel of cranberries develops quasi maple syrup trails as its luscious body slides down effortlessly. This highly talented Polotmavé is a feast for the malt lover.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A block of solid foam sits atop the hazy copper.
-That fruity caramel is complex and never too sweet; just expertly extracted.
-Subtle hop bitterness does not quite achieve balance, but I don’t care in this case.
-The fruitiness ramifies into plums, cherries or cranberries as it moves across the tongue.

On tap at the brewpub.

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: Tap at brewpub (Pivovar Bašta, Prague)
The look: Cloudy amber body with a large 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 with the dry grassy hops head-to-head with a surprising lemony tartness in the finish. More refreshing but less involving. Still very good.

Draught. Amber colour, mediumsized beige creamy head. Aroma is licorice, malts, mild apicing as well as some fruits. Flavour is bigtime licorice with some malts, mildly salted nuts as well as some slight hoppy bitterness. Some diacetyl is also coming in in the finish.

Pivovar Bašta, Prága. Opálos barnásvörös szín, piszkosfehér krémes-tömör, nagy és kitartó hab. Aszalt szilvás, mazsolás, vajkaramellás, malátás és enyhén komlós, nagyon finom illata van. Íze sem különb, melyben halványan még kevés friss gyömbér is érződik, teljesen megbolondítva a lelkes kóstolót. Nagyon-nagyon finom, közepesen testes, üdítően ható keserédes vienna, amit ráadásul egy karnyújtásnyira főznek. A három főzetből álló szortiment legjobbja, kipróbálásra fokozottan érdemes.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2008
(Draught at Pivovar Bašta, Prague, 21 July 2008) Dark reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with caramel, orange and lots of toffee. Malty taste with notes of caramel, toffee, nuts, apricots and blood oranges. Complex stuff with some spicy hops. Very nice one.

Diar (121) - SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2009
(tap at brewpub) A dark amber, quite clear beer with thick foam that has a tint of red. Aroma has some diacetyle and some licorice. It has a complex, rich taste which makes it hard to identify, nice bitterness though. The palate is good. The aftertaste is dominated by licorice.
