Bottom fermentation, medium full and medium bitter whole malt beer. Vienna lager and Bavarian Märzen were the inspiration for its composition. The color is closer to Märzen and the bitterness closer to Vienna lager. Märzen, Czech March beer, used to be cooked in March, which is still rather cold. Nowadays we have mechanical cooling and, therefore, we cook amber all year round.

hrabren (239) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 14, 2015
On tap at Strahov monastery brewpub, Prague. Semi-clear amber with a frothy off white head, long lasting but diminishing. Malty, some grain and some fruits. Light, malty, some bitterness, otherwise sweet. Medium body, could have fuller taste, soft carbonation. Drinkable, but to light, similar to their summer ale.

Bamsen78 (4438) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2015
Draught @ the brewpub. Pours very slightly hazy amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and hops, with notes of yeast and touches of fruit. Sweetish, malty and estery flavour, beautifully complemented by bitter, hoppy notes. Bready and caramellish touches. Bitter and estery aftertaste. A very, very good Polotmavy!

Strahov tasting continued. This was a nice follow-up to the Easter special, especially accompanied by Czech pickled sausage and onion soup as first course. Fresh bread, good interpretation of the style.

Keg at the Brewpub in Day 1 of Fergus and Sarah’s Czech jaunt. 29/09/14. Clouded light amber / orange coloured pour with a big ol’ frothy off white head. Aroma is earthy grainy, wheat and rye cereals, wort, light spicy hop. Flavour is composed of toasty bread, light char, earthy grains, hint of roast. Solid bitter finish. Malt led and earthy. Slightly harsh in the finish.
