bbertels (436) - NORWAY - JAN 20, 2017
Bottle, 500 ml brought by friends from Prague. Moderate head and carbonation. Amber colour, as can be imagined. Caramel aroma. Round, full taste. Caramel also in taste, some hops that temper this nicely, almost some herbal notes, some green apple. A bit short but nice.

Clear deep amber colour with a quickly disappearing head. Malts, caramel in the aroma, plus some floral, grassy notes from the hops. The taste follows, it’s malty with a herbal, spicy bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation. Ok for an amber lager.

brnandersen (3518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2016
Draught at Praga sörörző és kávėzó, Szekesfehervar. Clear, amber colour with a creamy, off-white head. Sweet aroma with caramel malts, grasses, lightly toasted notes, pale malts and biscuits. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Good for the alcohol level. Finishes dry and slightly bitter with caramel malts and grasses. Nice, straightforward Polotmavý.

While visiting the amazing ossuary in Sedlec, I had to run out to find a toilet. "Where’s the toilet please?" I asked the bar lady as I rushed into the restaurant. "It’s 10 Koruna..." "Sorry, I didn’t ask for a price. I asked for directions." The bar lady insisted: "It’s 10 Koruna to use the toilet." "You expect me to pay to use the toilet? Just give me a beer and it will be free for me. Now tell me where the hell the toilet is." So I took the Polotmavy. So easy to drink, it came down round and slippery as a ball bearing. Dark as a dunkel, it was malty and ashy, very different from my first Polotmavy, the Master 13.

Martin243 (1065) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2016
Live rating: My first Polotmavy, 500ml bottle from Glug in the Grainger Market Newcastle. Poured into an English pint. Clear mahogany brown, with a rich off white half inch of mousse for a head. I’m scoring high for looks. Aroma of burnt caramel and dry grass. Fleeting mental comparison with Newcastle Brown: certainly plenty of toffee malt flavour, with a scrape of burnt toast, and a little more hop greenery than is usual for a lager. Nice bitter sweet balance, surprisingly light body, smooth palate. Wife had a sip and thought of Newcastle Brown, too. Tasty.

Cristobal37 (885) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 29, 2016
Doughy yeast and hop aroma. Big head, filtered amber apperance. Not much carbonation. Quite sweet and sticky. Nice bitterness in the finish though. Average and even then it’s not very tasty. Disappointed with this one. Enjoyed the svetly and tmavy from these guys, but this one is not worth exploring.
