Foggy golden amber with a huge tawy topping. Fresh Saaz mixed with caramel malt that almost seemed ale-like. Excellent hops flavour and bitterness balanced well with some citrusy notes and sweet pilsner malt. Unique caramel flavour for the style. Just a touch of sulfur. Hops lingers a bit, but it’s nice; moderate carbonation and medium body. I really enjoyed this beer. fiulijn (20604) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2006

Beautiful hazy amber color; thick creamy head. Lovely aroma; malty and hoppy aroma. Low carbonation, medium malty body, a touch of caramel, high hopping, partially aromatic. Very long and strong and aromatic final, with some malt. Very good.

Draft. Nice amber color, hoppy aroma. So many different tones in flavor: hoppy, fruity, smoked ... Good dry finish. Fresh and good! ladnewton (1975) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2010
On tap at U Medvidku brewpub on 10th july 2010. Amber with frothy white head. Hoppy with citrus notes; topuch of grapefruit in the kick, light textured and fairly easy to drink given its strength. A lingering hoppy finish with lasting grapefruit. A good beer.

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
Strong hoppy flavor and no after flavor. Nice copper/red body. I personally enjoiod this one a lot. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2006 Amber/orange with a quite nice offwhite head. Great aroma from toffee and butter. Malty toffee flavor, a bit milky and ceramy. Nicely mixed with a nice hoppy grassy bitterness. Some fruity notes, apples and grapes.
