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.

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.

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.

Smooth palate; light, doughy malt notes; touch of hay in the finish. Pleasant example of the European Strong Lager style, and better than the sum of its parts.

Good balance between the malt and the alcohol-flavor.

Mildly sweet smell. Golden colour, fluffy head. Kind of sweet, some bitterness. Cloying, grassy. Ordinary.

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.

A golden beer with a beutiful lasting head. The aroma is very malty sweet - somewhat simple. The flavor is malty sweet with notes of grain - but very simple. The palate is quite good - probably the 7.2% ABV (which mine was). An OK Strong Lager.

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.
