3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 Na Parkanu, Pilsen, Czech Republic
The look: Clear golden copper body with a large creamy off-white 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 a bit better put together than most. A typical but very good example of the style.

On-tap: two 0.4 litre glasses around midnight on 1st Oct 2014, in a bar somewhere in Prague. Pours a good, solid amber colour with a large white head with a creamy texture. Aroma is fairly sweet with caramel and mixed fruits being the main smells. Taste is also on the sweet and fruity side with next to no bitterness until the end of each sip. Went very well with a huge Burger and chips.

Tap at the pils urquell tap place. Alround rating: Malty amber ale, easy drinking enough, but could do with less carb and alcohol.
