3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A caramel dominated lager with hints of the minty glacier hop. Not too bad. Easy drinking, different from something like Yuengling. I’d buy it again at this really fancy price of 1 buck.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted on 2/7/14 from a capped 12oz bottle at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, big thanks to Drake for sharing. Pours bright copper orange with a thick white head that leaves rocky lace. The nose is caramel malt forward with a touch of spicy hops, and a touch of spicy straw. The flavor is about the same, pretty light with some caramel malt and dusty straw with just a bit of bitterness. The body is light with average carbonation and a medium dusty, lightly spicy hops finish.

Bottle as an extra in a trade - thanks Chris! Dark amber pour with a whispy white head. Nose is popcorn and malt. Taste is quite smooth and simple with a subtle malt character on the finish. No bitterness. Super easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark orange/amber in color with medium to small head and minimal lacing. Aroma has nice spicy yeastiness but mostly amber, caramel malts, and a little fruitiness. Flavor has strong caramel malts and slight hoppiness, a little toasted bread, and a bit of citrus. Strong flavor, yet easy drinking and very delicious!

Deep reddish brown pour with small white head. Deep toasted grain malt aroma. Almost some red fruitiness. This beer is all malt. Sweet toasted bread. furnishes dry with out any yeast character. Nice body not not too thin with a good coating of the taste buds. Solid stuff and quite drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Drake at RBWG on Friday night at the roach motel bottle share. Thanks, Drake, for the Polotmavy! My only missing beer style until this moment. Pours a clear deep gold color with a small off-white head that settles into a ring. Lots of malts - caramel, Munich, wheat - with straw, spiced table crackers, and cardboard. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Not bad. Glad I got to try the style finally.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle
Thanks to Santa for the stubby bottle. I once again have all styles until there is another split and then I guess it will be time to chase down yet another elusive tick. This would have been nice even if it were not motivated by catching them all. A typical Full Sail beer is full of flavor without being so heavy that it wears down the palate after a single bottle.
Aroma / Appearance - A semitransparent ruby base bubbles below a strong ivory head that takes time to settle down. Melted caramel, waxy chocolate, cherry licorice, and nutty malts are a snack of Twizzlers and Twix.
Flavor / Palate - Spicy caramel perks up the tongue. A collection of anise and chocolate chips carry into a filling full bodied finish. Easy drinking for 6% ABV this release is something that I hope more breweries will experiment with. If I ever were to visit the Czech Republic trying more of these fresh would be at the top of my list.

Bottle in Phoenix around new years. I really don’t understand the category and it took me a bit to find the listing but the beer was fine. Nice filling malty body. Good.
