COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spicy and herbal Marynka hops and two row and caramel malt from the city of Gdansk create a balanced, amber ale. Originally brewed to celebrate the 1200th anniversary of the home of one of our favorite breweries from the Polish Beer Trip, this style commemorates both Polish brewing history and Harpoon tradition. - See more at: http://www.harpoonbrewery.com/beer/2832/100-Barrel-Series-48-Polskie-Mastne#sthash.XFLxQsof.dpuf

ben4321 (3559) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 3/15/14

Aroma: The nose is sweet malts, caramel, some apple/fruit, spice, and a little bread
Appearance: Pours a clear orange color with a frothy off-white head and average lace
Flavor: Sweet and that’s about it, there’s a little spice, but not enough of anything else to balance it
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a soft carbonation, and a clean, easy drinking feel
Overall Impression: Re-finished all the beer styles (until they add another one)! Not a bad beer, but it lacks balance for the sweetness. Well-made and drinks nicely, but for me it just isn’t interesting enough or complex enough to get a higher score than this.

kramer (4681) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber to copper body with a one finger frothy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is malty and sweet with some moderate hoppiness. The flavor is rather hoppy, nice sweet toasty and caramel malt below. Lingering light bitterness. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a little cling on the finish. Pretty nice beer, I could session on this guy a while.

demitriustown (1033) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Bomber: Aroma has got a nice spicy hop note and a light malt note. Appearance is a light red with a thick white head that lingers for quite a while. Taste has got a nice hop note with a good roasted malt texture in the backing. Palate is medium carbonation with an aftertaste of the lightly spicy hop note. Overall, Pretty nice stuff. Na Zdeowie!

beerfest5 (1059) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 18, 2014
Poured a reddish brown into the pint glass. Large white head, aroma of caramel malt, grass, herbal notes, tea? dunno. Taste is the same, nice lager finish, fat mouthfeel. Ends with a grassy hay hop character. Interesting beer, glad to try the style.

VTHopHead (1503) - Barre, Vermont, USA - FEB 16, 2014
22oz bottle - Poured a medium amber in color with a tight white head that stuck around and produced some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is of caramel malts and grassy/floral hops. Flavor is slightly malty sweet, but with plenty of hop bitterness at the end to blanac it out... also quite a bit of fruitiness... some citrus and some darker. Pretty good...

mkgrenwel (555) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Dark bronze bordering on a light amber. Full two fingers of head with a good amount of fluffy lacing. Caramel, corn and light noble hop spice. Rich malty body with notes of caramel and bread. Peppery spice in the back. The blend of dark malt and strong spice is actually reminiscent of a Trappist beer like Westy 8. Pretty firm bitterness, more so than I am used to in a european lager style. Quite drinkable and flavorful. Would probably go great with food. I can’t speak to the fit for the style, as it’s not a style I am familiar with, but I like it. I would be happy to see more of the style if they are all like this.

Scrapersnbeer (1431) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Aroma is fruity floral and spicy, like a caramel dipped apple served with graham crackers. Medium orange hue that’s almost a Vienna. Some bitter sting, followed by a hard, alcoholic dark fruit sweetness. Slick body, not sticky as I would expect. Does remind me, if only tangentially, of he big Polish pilsners - hearty and not too subtle.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Bomber decanted into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber with a medium bubbles, and a half inch head that lingers around and leaves nice thick lacing. Nose is caramel predominantly with some toast, and lighter floral hop notes. Taste is medium malt sweetness, quite a good malt backbone actually, and a fairly boring but balanced pilsner bitterness. Body is quite full despite the smooth carbonation, with little aftertaste. Pretty decent and sessionable, but nothing mindblowing.
