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.

Chutné polotmavé pivo - výborná alternativa k plzni na Masters Of Rock. Dělají i světlé a tmavé, ale tohle je nejlepčí.

flying_pig (965) - SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2014
400ml on-tap in Prague Old Town (52Czk):
Sweet malts & caramel with toasted malts & a subtle, spicy aroma. Medium strength toffee as well as some sugar & touches of vanilla.
Caramel amber with a 0.25cm head that stays consistently over the opening minutes & holds as a thick lacing after that.
Slightly stronger than the nose with some caramel & toffee coming through alongside sweet malts and some spice from the hops. There is a few light, earthy hops as well & a touch of floral in there with some faint butter.
Smooth with a light-medium body & lively carbonation along with some spice. There is a good balance to the beer and it is quite sweet.

A very nice beer and definitely one worth trying if you ever come across it since it seems very hard to find outside of the Czech Republic.

On draught at U Suru in Prague. Also available diagonally across the street from U fleku. clear and copper in color with a nice thick and creamy white head. Sweet aroma with scents of toffee and caramel. A bit flat but quite smooth with a nice slightly bitter somewhat sweet caramel after taste. A bit lingering and sticky, which I love, so I am a bit impartial. One of the best beers in prague. Even comes with its own elegant napkin coaster. Better at U Suru!

Bamsen78 (3224) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel with notes of hops and yeast. Bitter, hoppy onset, giving way to sweetish flavour of malt and caramel, ending on a slightly roasty and caramellish note. High but unobtrusive carbonation. A very nice Polotmavý.

thewolf (11191) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2008
Tap @ Na Parkanu, Plzen.
Pours a beautiful, clear amber with an impressive, creamy, lightly yellowish head. Super duration with good lacing. Aroma is rather dry, has some cardboard off-flavours, but also good grassy hops and pleasant caramel. Great creamy mouthfeel, lowish carbonation. Flavour is clean and crisp, great subdued caramel notes and a good, present and obvious hops profile. Extremely drinkable.

chinchill (1954) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2014 355ml bottle purchased and consumed in the Czech Republic. Clear amber body is capped by a modest but durable off-white head. The aroma is sweet, with light and medium toasted malts and a faint herbal-spicy hop background. Has an unexpectedly rich chocolate malt flavor, with a striking chocolate note in the excellent finish. Palate: Creamy; excellent carbonation; medium body. O - a super-tasty and smooth Czech amber. Highly recommended.

Russo (1685) - Campinas, BRAZIL - DEC 22, 2012
Draft in Plzeñ! Clear amber color with a pure fluffy white head and keeps a lacing until the end. Aroma is roasted malty and hints of toffee. Flavor is a little bit bitter with sweetness, quite balanced between sweetness and bitterness. Mouthfeel is long and sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone 4S

MartinT (7952) - 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.

On tap at na parkanu in plzen. Pours a reddish brown with a white head. Aroma is candi sugar yeast caramel and malts. Flavor is caramel malts yeast, a touch of hops. Decent vienna.

Consumed in Na Spilce, Plzen (but was it draught or from bottle?). This was the beer tasting bonus from the Plzen underground tourist tour. Aroma has malts. Taste is somewhat sweet. Looks great. I wasn’t thrilled about this one.
