500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a good head. Looks great in the glass. Mild hops and slightly metallic aroma. Light sweetness offset by a good amount of bitterness for a lager. This is probably closer to what you’d expect from a very light pale ale than a lager. The finish is more bitter and lasts longer and the hops shine through more. Far, far better than any macro lager (continental or otherwise) that I know.

malty and citric aroma... the taste is well-balanced, malty, with notes of herbs and buckwheat... bright hoppy bitterness... aftertaste is bitter and rather dry...

Pours flat and golden. Sweet, grassy, pretty bland. Wow, had this many times on tap, always liked it, hoppy and crisp. This is shit though.

Butelka 0.33L. Wygląd: Klarowne, jasnozłote z iskrą. Piana bujna, biała, drobnopęcherzykowa, lekko strzela i opada w umiarkowanym tempie, delikatnie znacząc szkło. Aromat: intensywny słodowy, jęczmień, miód, do tego cytryna i owoce tropikalne i nuty kwiatowe od chmielu. Smak: słodowy, cytrunowy z niską do średniej goryczką. Finisz lekko za suchy, ściągający. Odczucie: ciało niskie, wysycenie powyżej średniego, faktura jak nieoszlifowana deska. Jak na jasnego lagera to OK, zdecydowanie ciekawsze niż "koncerniaki" ale szału nie ma.

Clear golden very little head. Quite sweet on the tongue. Aroma of honey and hops. Quite flat.
