Ungstrup (29987) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2014
Draft. An amber beer with a huge beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a dry finish. Nothing special.

motelpogo (7171) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 11, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2012 re-rate: on tap at the brewpub and in good nick. fresh and grassy with some chewy and fresh (perhaps too much so) grain and a modestly bitter finish. just gives me the feeling as some polotmavys do of being neither one thing nor the other - lacking the richness of a decent tmavy or the subtlety of a good svetly on tap at the slunce ve skle festival in pilsen. served by people from the brewery themselves, no excuse for the beer being sevred in such bad shape. deep amber with a frothy head, so far so good; sharp aroma of decomposing tropical fruit; quite tinny with some rancid butterscotch and a nasty sweaty malt character; all sorts of flaws

jfb (4345) - Freising, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2012
(draught) pours a slightly hazy dark ruby colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of wheat, bubble gum and sweetened cherries, with a hint of peanuts and yeast. flavour is cherries, yeast and bread dough, with a hint of grass, milk chocolate, caramel and hazelnuts. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

At the brewpub. Poured a dark amber with a moderate head. Aroma of caramel malt and some berries. Medium body, flavour as the aroma. Pretty average.

TBone (13358) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2008
Hazy amber color, small off-white head. Caramelly sweety, light hops in the aroma. Sweetish, a bit alcoholic. Kind of so and so beer. Basta brews are all drinkable, but not impressive.

Gurthnar (2479) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 20, 2012
Tap at the brewery. Big beige head. Hazy ruby-brown colour. Aroma medium coffee, light roasted. Taste medium coffee, light roasted. Finish roasted. Mouthfeel a bit ashy, finish is long and a bit tart. In my opinion overally overrated.

Koelschtrinker (11748) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2011
Wässrig malziger Antrunk, wenig hefig, zum Mittelteil etwas herb. Das Bier bleibt aber zu mild. Minimal bitter, im Abgang etwas muffig mit etwas malzigem Nachgeschmack. 12/7/7/7//7

MiP (13955) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Slightly sour aroma, also a bit buttery. Cloudy dark amber colour. Nice stable tan head. The flavour is quite sour. Some plastic. Clearly not OK.
