2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale golden beer, white fairly creamy head. Aroma is mostly earthy/minerally hoppiness and lean pale malt. Flavour is pretty boring. Lightly grassy flavour and a fairly assertive bitterness. Meh.

Clear, flavor... blebleble. Nie wyobrażam sobie Wroclawiaka pijacego w knajpie Lecha lub Poznaniaka pijącego Piasta. Taki patriotyzm lokalny. Ale browarek godny.

Slightly bitter, biscuity flavour with a metallic edge. Nice, easy to drink beer with clean aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. Amber with a soft white head; heady, grassy aroma; full bodied and fruity with obvious alcohol; dryish finish. Satisfying.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours bright straw in colour, very bright, clear, light and like water. Poery tea with lemon in appearance. Head is wattery white to bright grey, a lot of bubbles, quickly decarbonating and not much carbonation of the body. Head is quickly disappearing and the beer becomes rapidly flat. Not that fresh aroma, considerable skunkness aroma, bready smell with carbonated nose, some hint of
malty sweetnes and citrus but fainting quite quickly.
Flavour: grainy, citrus, some hoppy bitterness, very low (poor) malty base as for a premium lager, quite far from pilsner, strong notes of carbonation in flawour and a majority of water! Vary flat beer becomes slightly toungy, a typical Polish macro-commercial beer of mass production for Yuppies knowing more about fashion for bottle and commercials of beer than real taste. Easily forgetable, good for chain drinking to get shit-faced or for a hot days to drink it quickly, definitely not for glorification. When decarbonated stinks terribly with dirty water.
Palate: is flat, a slight bitternes, lemon and tonguy finish but definitely with skunky aftertaste, prety nasty. Poor popular macro shaping the idea of masses that the more poor the beer is it is still famous. Still better than Peroni Nasrto Azzurro.

0,5 l can, bottle or tap. Golden coloured, clean. Very hoppy. Strong and interesting aroma (of hops) resembling soap. Little creamy with good carbonation. Combination of aroma, flavor and carbonation make it special.
