From a fresh bottle.
I havenít had this for some years.
This lager met my low expectations. An adequate, mildly bitter pils.

Clear pale yellow, thin white skim, sparse lacing. Light grainy cereals, some citrus, and grass. Helps that this came from a 16oz can. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, gentle sweetness, rounded finish. Passable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ulice 9/8 2015. 50 cl can from local market (Voli). Pours clear very pale yellow with big white head. Settles quickly leaving thin lacing. Aroma is sweetish with a sour tang. Medium carbonation. Taste follows the nose and is dominated by sweetish malts. Aftertaste is sourish. Ok thirst quencher if consumed cold. Should not be enjoyed lukewarm.

22 oz bottle purchased for $2. Iím not really sure what is more interesting; this beer, or the articles online that surround it. Iíve read about the possibility of AB halting the brand, all the way to them paying people back their money (and then some) for drinking it. All because people canít fathom the idea of an imported beer being brewed in their backyard. Or in this way, the great gateway to the west. Iím not one to care. When it comes to this kind of beer, I tend to remain on the less picky side. Although a US brewed Becks VS a German brewed Becks would be a fun blind taste test. All of this added up to the thought crossing my mind that I better rate this before I lose my opportunity. That, coupled with the fact that growing up, this was my Dadís favorite beer, and drank it about as much as I drink every other beer combined. I suppose I also hadnít submitted a long, random, rambling review in a while, so I guess Iím killing a half dozen birds with one beer. I felt very silly pouring this into a glass, but I did for color and appearance reviews alone. Donít worry, Iíll drink the rest properly out of the bottle. When it comes to green bottle, premium import/export (see above) lagers, this one is decently refreshing and most importantly, finishable. Nearly transparent pale yellow color with an aroma that filled the room upon cracking it open. Extremely light flavor. About as watery as they come. There isnít a single flavor strong enough to identify or point out. I certainly wouldnít use the word "complex" in itís description, but no heavy complaints here. Just an average, water forward light lager. For two bucks, Iím sure Iíll find myself in a "why not?" mood again someday.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow beer with no head. aroma is malty sweet, nothing off putting in sight. Flavor is a bit sweet with some light but malt and some light bitterness. Refreshing palate.
There is much worse to choose from but obviously much better. A bit light but much better than some other pale lagers.
