Not very intensive but pleasant bready aroma. Small, quickly disappearing head. Clear light golden body. Mostly malty sweetness in taste. Interesting delicate bitter aftertaste.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bread and malt in the nose, the color is urine yellow, lively carbonation, nice lasting white head, the taste is bittersweet with some sour notes, some cheap notes in the aftertaste. Overrated beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from supermarket in Olsztyn. Light golden colour with some lacing, small white head. Mild aroma of bread and caramel with some floral hops with a trace of lemon, hint of alcohol also, short slightly bitter finish, medium texture and slick mouthfeel. Quite good, refreshing basic lager, but nothing really interesting going on.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I must say that the aroma, crisp and Saaz hoppy gave the illusion of a more exciting beer. Not much of a head over the lovely golden body, it has a sweetish, buttery flavour, grassy indeed, with a rose-apple aromatic flavour, but just too malty, too sweet, especially the finish, not enough balance with the expected hoppy bitterness. A bit of a dispppointment for the Golden Lion. ("In a coat of gold or a coat of red,
A lion still has claws,
And mine are long and sharp, my lord,
As long and sharp as yours.")

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pale malty, slightly grainy aroma with notes of soap, hops and honey. Light to moderate body, slightly sweetish taste, light bitter and astringent finish. Perhaps a tad too alcoholic for this kind of body, and also rather boring. Drinkable for sure, though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Gold with a white head that fades quickly. Aroma of honeyed pale malt, dusty floral hops, a little lemon. Rich, slightly buttery honeyed sweetness, lemon, lingering bitterness, herbs. Nice, a bit on the sweet side for me.

Mörkare gyllene i färgen med vitt skum. Doftar och smakar unken söt malt, alkohol, lite frukttoner och gräs. Trist.
