imdownthepub (10140) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2006
On tap at U Medvicku, Prague, unfiltered, 500ml. Dark amber beer with cream head. Wow, this is about the whole beer experience. To get to the Brewery you have to walk through a large restaurant where they only sell the bottled version. Walk upstairs and it is a trip to heaven, the worty brewery smell permeate the building, the beer is a dark amber and yes worty yeasty smooth unfiltered one dispensed from an unusual cupboard arrangement. It has a biscuity malt and a gentle fruitiness. A step up in class from previous Prague beers and a sign of good things to come. A beauty.

Bov (9443) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 17, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2007 courtesy of Per Samuelsson - hazy amber colour with a fast disappearing foam; solid grapefruity and malty aroma, notes of mango; medium-bodied and with a low carbonation, light but long lasting bitterness; finishes moderately dry with notes of apples - unusual and interesting though not fully exciting beer

adnielsen (9013) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Tap @ brewery in Prague. Hazy dark amber appearance with a nice tan head and nice lacing.. Toasty malty, light caramel, a touch spicy, light tangerine, somewhat yeasty aroma. Dried fruit, light toffee, toasty malty, cracker, light orange citrusy flavor.

pivnizub (8797) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2006
On tap in U Medvidku Praha: Hazy, amber coloured, creamy, quite stable off-white head; sweet-malty nose with a heavy herbal, almost medical hoppiness; moderate bitter, only faint sweetish flavour, quite light-bodied; rather dry, hoppy finish. Pleasant and hoppy, a bit too slim......................

3fourths (7978) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Draft at U Medviku in Prague, served in a glass mug. Dark amber colored body with a tan head. Sweet nose of diacetyl (not overbearing) and sweetened cherries and some candy sugar along with a sweet sort of base-wort malt character. Flavor doesn’t have so much sweetness, but there is more of the diacetyl noticed. Bready cracker malts and caramel, wet and oily, medium bodied. Nothing exciting.

Dogbrick (7971) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Sample at the Eurostash tasting on 04/30/09: Bottle from the brewpub. This beer is a hazy orange color with a medium thin and creamy white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Tart fruit aroma with bits of earthy malt. Medium body with flavors of nearly sour fruit, pale malt and a metallic tinge. The finish is tart fruit that lingers awhile. Considering this is a Vienna I am assuming the bottle was past its prime. Will have to revisit at some point.

JorisPPattyn (7885) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2006 Hazy orange-amber beer, small yellowish head. Bit of glue or solvent; winey smell with very fruity notes: oranges but also apricot or mango, all sugar- or alcoholpreserved. Shockingly hopbitter after the totally fruit-syrupy nose; yet there’s some serious malts underneath, caramel and even toffee, but the hopgift remains such that nobody could call this beer sweet. Though there is some buttery feel, and it’s quite slick, the beer is actually a bit thin in the swallowing. Aftertaste faint trace of caramel with retronasal hoparoma’s. Quite good beer, I find it less outspoken, but better balanced than their X-beer. Profuse thanks to Sebastian for giving me this.

Quack-Duck (7794) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2007
on tap at U Medvídku, also troed from the bottle. Amber colour, large head. Very malty indeed with hints of caramel and roasted malts. More hoppy towards the finish.

gnoff (7780) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2008 Draught at the brewpub "Minipivovar U Medvidku".
Oldgott Barique Lezak 13° at 5.2% ABV.
Long (very) time to pour the beer. Shady brown color, huge beige creamy head, very lasting. Nice hoppy taste, medium to big bitterness. When tasting the top of the head it has lots of metallic taste and a huge bitterness. Hoppy scent when enough of the head has eventually withdrawn. A bit of butterscotch in the scent and taste when the head dies some more and the beer warms up.
6/5/7/3/18=3.9

Rerate
(Draught at U Medvidku on June 30, 2008
Shady dark copper color, big creamy lasting tan head. Hoppy and sweet malty taste. Fruity and hoppy scent. Smooth mouthfel, medium high bitterness.
7/4/7/4/15=3.7

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2008 On tap at the brewpub in 2005:

The Lure:
Took about 10 minutes to pour, so obviously a sumptuous head was served atop. Smooth caramel dripping onto the shy hops. Great malt display, but somewhat linear to my nostrils.

The Festivities:
Luscious extraction of round maltiness, where caramel, faint butterscotch, and sly mineral notes dabble with the soft, low carbonation. A whispering hop tinge is swiftly washed away by the malts. Very well executed technically, but ultimately a little boring to me in its one and only direction.

Transcendence:
Morning toast; sustaining and easy.

On tap at the brewpub in 2008:
A stupendous fruity caramel maltiness benefited from perfectly integrated wooden, herbal hop notes which so efficiently teamed up with the oaken barrel flavors. Its superb body, immense drinkability and inherent complexity made for a most smashing Polotmavé. 4.2/5
