COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for the Plzeňský Prazdroj.
Master polotmavý je vynikající 13% prémiové speciální pivo vyvážené chuti s jemnou karamelovou hořkostí a barvou, originál, ve kterém se snoubí tradiční mistrovství našich sládků s tajemným uměním neznámého mistra. Proslulý žatecký chmel dodává pivu jedinečné aroma, nejlepší světlý slad s karamelem pak jemně karamelovou chuť a tmavší barvu.

Rune (8066) - Tromsř, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2014
355ml bottle with a brown neck shared by Finn at a rating session in Tromsř. Decent off-white head to a clear amber body. Poor lacing. Dusty hops and caramel nose. Malty taste profile with nuts, buttery malts and caramel supported by notes of dried fruits towards the ending. Medium bodied. Too sweet for a higher score (Tromsř 19.02.2014).

Quack-Duck (7944) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2008
draught at the kavarna in Obecni dum, Praha. Clear amber colour, medium head. Well-balanced vienna, not too sweet, not bitter but pleasantly hoppy.

MartinT (7860) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Expressive caramel biscuits cleanly purport ideas of refreshment and long evenings in this professionally constructed, balanced Polotmavé.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A mountain of foam establishes its kingdom atop the shiny copper translucence.
-Some wooden hop bitterness cleverly interrupts the malty reign.
-These hops only seem to appear in the last half of the sip.
-The body is healthy and the level of residual sugars maintains a pleasant middle ground.

On tap at Na Parkanu, Plzen.

crossovert (7441) - Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2011
"Half Dark" beer. It is malty to a point with an okay hop flavor. Not a bad vienna.

Scopey (6909) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2011
On tap at Na Spilce, Plzen. Pours amber with large off-white head. High carbonation. Nose; overly sweet, caramel, citrus. Taste; caramel sweetness, citrus, lemon sherbet, quite thin, soapy with a short hoppy-lemon finish. Boring and industrial tasting....

motelpogo (6700) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 12, 2009
on tap at na parkanu and at zach’s pub. a pretty average vienna really, mild nutty nose, slightly citric bitterness, quite boring. this is what beer designed by a committee tastes like.
