asheft (2476) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2008
[on tap at plan b in Copenhagen] Blast of fresh, noble hops in the nose with a touch of diacetyl along with some nice caramel (nice but uncommon in this style). Very nearly clear brownish bronze under a lasting tan foam. Thin and a bit too bitter with watermelon notes and a little diacetyl. Not enough malt sweetness. Medium body, low carbonation, a little lasting bitterness.

Tap @ Plan B, Cph.
Pours a great, clear copper with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, some caramel and a good degree of butter. Medium carbonation. Sugary sweet flavour with some butter. Finish well with a good hoppiness.

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 (Pivovarský Dvůr Chýně, Hostivice, Czech Republic)
The look: Partly 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 but low in intensity.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Hay and caramel peacefully coexist, chatting and smiling away with the herbal hop flavor and bitterness until a dryness increases and a dusty yeast clinches this rural Polotmavé.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy throne of foam enhances the hazy dull amber.
-The mouthfeel is cozy, offering enough residual sugars to offset the active carbonation.
-The malt character and the herbal hop presence are ably balanced.
-The finishing hop bitterness is tea-like and unyielding.

On tap at the brewpub.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2008
Tap@U Salzmannu, Plzen. Buttery caramel flavours throughout, which may have suggested it may have been a bit spoilt, but some nice lightly fruity, bitter Czeck hops in the finish. Not too bad, but could have been less sweet.
