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. KimJohansen (10509) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - APR 10, 2008
[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. KyotoLefty (10367) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 4, 2009
It is a deep Amber color, with a very small head, quickly fading. Rich, nutty, malty, bitter-sweet aroma. Spicy and nutty, slightly sweet, with caramel, raisins. Very aromatic. It’s really nice. The flavor is nice as well. It has a very big flavor, very full of malt. It’s sweet but not overly so. It’s relatively light on the hops, but they are there. Tastes like dried fruit, caramel. It’s relatively light on carbonation, and heavy bodied. There’s a touch of sour flavor, just a touch. It seems to balance it nicely. It has a decent bitter finish, leaving a kind of bitter, dry aftertaste that lingers on. This is a fantastic beer. deanso (10150) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - DEC 4, 2010

.Hazy amber colour. Decent head. Nice beer JorisPPattyn (10026) - Ursel, 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.

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 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. 3fourths (9349) - 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. gyllenbock (9326) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle, gift from a buddy. (thanks Petter)
A bit hazy brownish/orange with a huge head. A bit sour with malt, leather, citrus and light spices. Lively carbonation and with a medium mouthfeel. An ok one. I would like to try this fresh.
