0.5l can. Malty aroma. Copper color, low beige head. Taste is malty with caramel notes. Light body, watery texture, average carbonation and bittery finish. Better than the pale version of this beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at U Bulovky Rychter. This was a difficult one because this brewpub makes very desirable beers and to sit around watching my friends consume them without partaking myself was a challenge. It was on our way to Jirny to see Zizkov romp to a resounding 4-1 victory. I like Birrel among the nealkos and the Polotmave effort is very flavourful. Good gear.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Barwa brunatna. Aromat słodowy, karmelowy, trochę jakby syrop klonowy. Smak wodnisty, karmel, nie zaklejające i orzeźwiające. Mało piwa w piwie.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Moderately strong oxidized aroma and flavour. In comparison with standard Birell it is considerably less oxidized+metallic and some light caramel pokes out. Still very thin and watery and seriously flawed, but not as bad as the classic Birell.
