Draught at Prague Beer Museum on June 5, 2011
Hazy copper color, fluffy off-white head. Spicy and acidic scent, a bit sour. Malty but sour rasre, I don’t think this is OK. Thin mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Won’t let this rating push down the previous, since this beer must have gone bad at this place, or else served out of an old keg or similar.

draft. clear striking rusty orange body with a fluffy and lasting white head. sweet approach turning somewhat thin and flabby with low acid, low bitterness, medium chewiness and noticeable yeast esters (berry, apple, orange). straightforward munich malt toffee and caramel, a bit too chewy and thin and out of balance, finishing with orange esters and caramel. nothing special.

heavy (2161) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 19, 2014
Jun ’14. On tap at homebrewer competition in Magic beer room, Zagreb. It poured clear copper body with medium sized head. Caramel and bread aroma, predominately malty. Hops were evident only in the flavor, as lightly bitter balance for toasted malty dominance. Caramel, dark fruits and a bit of bread were most pronounced flavors. Medium bodied with sweetish and herbal bitter finish. Very good polotmavy!
