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 (2773) - 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!

AshtonMcCobb (5408) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - deep caramel with a nicely proportioned head. Nose - mainly caramel with a touch of malt and a hint of hazelnuts. Taste - caramel going into honey. Tangy orange. Very sweet. Palate - medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a long tangy finish which is just a bit too sweet. Overall - enjoyable but too sweet.
