3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the restaurant (03/03/13). Rather clear amber pour, thick foamy white head. Aroma is caramel forward, as with the svetle but it somehow seems more fitting here, classic fruity and vanilla polotmavé notes as well. Taste of caramel, light toasted grain, light fruitiness, delicate. Palate is fluffy, definitely not one of the driest examples, but well attenuated nonetheless. Good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Vanilla, caramel and butterscotch seep from this Polotmavy’s pleasant malts.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the hazy dark amber.
-This one too feels like it was carbonated with a dose of nitrogen.
-This Polotmavy’s quite low on the hops.
-There isn’t much depth here, but the flavor profile is highly pleasant.
-Mouthfeel is silky and creamy.
On tap at the brewpub.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Live rating: 330ml bottle from a friend returning to England from Prague. Pours hazy amber with yellowish white thick head. Yeasty and mildly hoppy aroma with wood and savoury scents. Intensely sour citric tastes in-the-mouth; lemon/unripe fruit. Sweet-sour, primarily acidic finish on medium body and lightly zingy mouthfeel. Tingling sensation on the tongue for several moments between sips. Something of an effort needed to drink. I noticed on the bottle the following: Minimalni trvanlivost do 10.12.12. Does this mean it was two weeks past its drink-by date????

It’s not really a Christmas Tasting in Odense. Copper with a small white head. Aroma of toffee with a touch of apple peel and some diacetyl. Sweet malty flavour with diacetyl

On draught at the brewery tap / restaurant, so in optimum condition. A classic Czech ’Polotmavy’ take on Vienna Lager, if such a style ever really existed. Easily mistakable in palate for a north of England stronger bitter. Dabs of caramel, a bit of barley sugar and enough hop to keep it from cloying.
