2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Didn’t even realize that I have polotmavy rating in the archives. This was available here in Estonia for a very short period of time. It was just some random dark lager, not really bad nor good (read: not really memorable).
