Notch Polotmavy Czech Amber Lager Clone HomeBrew Recipe
All Grain HomeBrew Czech Style Amber Lager Recipe
Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a smooth session-style Czech Amber Lager, similar to Notch Polotmavy. Medium-light bodied with smooth toasted malt flavors, mild caramel sweetness and a light spicy hop notes. Crisp finish with moderate bitterness. Amber color comes from a very small amount of de-bittered black malt which adds color without producing any roasty or bitter flavors.
