Złote, klarowne piwo o średniej pianie, która dość szybko redukuje się do zera. Aromat i smak głównie słodowy okraszony szczyptą chmielu. Goryczka niska. Ogólnie przeciętne piwo i nie mogę go porównać do tego sprzed lat, gdyż byłrm wtedy zbyt młody, ale to obecne wpisuje się w obecne standardy mocnego jasnego lagera.

pours weak head with clear golden body. Aroma; wet cardboard, flowers, wine, Tastel sweet malty with hints of honey and biscuit. Palate ist ok medium carbonation and full body. Generally the beer is strong and you can feel the alcohol. wierd artificial aftertaste is diffficult to describe

The aroma is like cardboard with some cola, sweet grains, and light herbal hops. The appearance is golden with almost no head and sediment. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Bad beer. I assume it’s stale.

Bottle -- Pours with a sudsy white head with not a lot of retention or lacing. Pale gold with sparse tiny bubbles. Aroma is sweet malt and maybe a bit hoppy. More sweetness is the flavour wihtout much bitterness to balance it out. There’s an alcoholic edge to it too. Not a terribly exciting beer but nothing much wrong with it.

1 pint .9 oz bottle. Aroma is sweet powdered malt with a mild nose tingling sharpness that I suppose could be aroma hops. Body is a murky yellow/gold and holds a diminishing pinky thin white head. fore is a huge wallop of sugary powdered malt-like flavor. Scant hops. soft mouthfeel with low carbonation and a sustained sweetness well into the finish. Not something I’d reccomend.

This has a lightly carbonated, thick gold body with a fluffy white head that seems to evaporate by the end of the pour. This has the aroma of a sweet jet fuel. The flavor is sweet malt, some earthy hop bitterness, and alcohol. Considering its other qualities, this brew could have used more of the latter.

Pours clear and yellow with small white head. Light malt nose. Flavor is sweet malt. Finish is clean with very light alcohol notes. Almost zero carbonation....not quite flat. This tastes much better than the Brok beer I had yesterday.

Pours clear gold with a white head. Sweet mild aroma. Flavor is nice. Mild, slightly sweet with a nice grassy finish. Alcohol is hidden very well. A little watery with nice carbination. Very simple but very enjoyable.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Appearance: a clear, pale yellow, with a small, but resilient white head that maintains a thin ring. Aroma: sweetness incarnate, notes of honey and lemon, a bit syrupy and candyish, and still containing vegetable, herbal hints, as well. Body is light and airy, finish short, taste subdued, to speak politely. Bright, sweet honeyish flavor rings through, though, and actually, this flavor profile becomes more pronounced as we go...super-sweet, extra-strong. I hadn’t realized it was 7.8%, and started wondering if it was supposed to be a blonde doppelbock. Or is it a "malt liquor"? A nice, tasty thirst quencher, but as we down the drink, the alcohol becomes more and more evident, the flavor, as it is, gives way to the sweetness and strength, and it becomes warmer and less delicious as we go along. This is a beer that worked at the front, but the deception employed at the start becomes it’s undoing, as it fails to fulfill any brighter promise, than a sweet, strong device for deadening brain waves.

I'm still not sold on Polish beers although this one was better than most. Slightly watery and skunky. Malty & sweet tasting. Smooth palate. Filling. Decent finish.
