3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Thanks Heino] Amber with medium off white head. Seeet fruity aroma with caramel, spices and malty notes. Flavor goes the same way and holds notes of berries and ends sweet. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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......................

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2008 On tap at the brewpub in 2005:
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.
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.
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

On tap at U Medvidku. Pours cloudy amber with foamy off-white head. Nose; summer fruits - raspberry, strawberry, blackberry and sour grapefruit. Taste; yeasty, sour fruit - cherry, strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, sherbet and lime. Has a thirst-quenching tart-hoppy finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
