3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml swingtop bottle. Courtesy of Jamedra, Thanks. Pours a gorgeous reddish-copper color with a big fluffy off-white head that has fantastic retention. The aroma is somewhat subdued with sweet malts, rock candy and a bit of spice. The taste is similarly subtle with sweet malts, bread, persimmons and something spicy. The palate is just a bit thinner than I would prefer and the carbonation is lively. Finishes short and clean. Overall: Very satisfying and enjoyable to drink.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a special bottle hand delivered from Czech republic by Mom and Dad. Figuring out how to add rating was like a lesson in Czech. Jantar = amber. Polotmavy (the style) literally translates to "shadowy". This is the real deal- the amber lager of the Czech Republic. Pours a nice deep orange with a decent head. Has the definite crispness of a lager with some of the warmth that a darker malt brings. Fairly light mouthfeel and a good amount of bitterness in the finish. Definitely has spicy notes typical of the region. Really ncie. Perfect way to celebrate move.
