4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wonderful Saaz hop aroma with a whiff of pils malt. Clear amber with thick tan head that dissapears quickly. Malty flavor similar to a Munich Dunkel but much hoppier (Saaz, spicy, floral) and bitter. There is a low caramel flavor in harmony with other components.. Balance is that of a Czech pils with a Munich Dunkel and tastes nice. Palate is balanced with no astringency or heat. Overall an excellent beer.

500ml bottle as Bernard Amber. Pours a mid to dark brown, with a huge white head, average retention and good lacing. The aroma is a mixture of sweeter toffee notes and darker burnt caramel with a hint of coffee. There is a brief hit of quite sweet caramel to start, with some slight pine notes following. It then moves into a quite dark and bitter body, with a weak white coffee flavour in the aftertaste. An unusual beer, but very well balanced. It is neither too complex nor too simple, so it would stand well either as a beer to savour or as a food match. Good stuff.

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.

Cherrywood colour. Malty flavour - toffee. Very smooth. Some pale malt mixed in there. A hint of milk chocolate complements this nicely.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Grapes, raisins, cocoa, caramel, cake, tones in a firm, roast aroma. Quite good.
Mouthfeel: Oily, foamy medium to full body.
Taste: More bitter than the typical dunkel. Hints of toffee and nuts. Grassy hops.
Finish: Coffeeish bitterness that intensifies and lasts quite long. Dry and hoppy.
Overall: Very nice.

0.5 l bottle from Prague Airport Souvenir Shop. Well, the colour is obviously amber. There is a nice head too. And the taste - some hops, but even more the taste of malts. Really nice.

Clear dark brown color with some hints of red. Nice balanced hoppy and malt aroma. Some bread character, some minerality. Quite bitter throughout the palate, but never overbearing. Medium level sweetness, but overall balanced. Long lasting herbal hop finish. Quite good. Again, perfect balance of bitter and sweet. Will get this again.
