Clean mouthfeel, crisp flavor. Lacks in body but mucho extra points in the bang for the buck department. Thanks to a depressed Polish economy, in NYC a 500ml bottle goes for about the same price as a Bud.

ljthiessen (308) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle. Clear, light golden pour with a small white head that fades quickly. Lightly grainy aroma, with clean malt and a touch of hops. Crisp flavour with light malts, slightly floral with a bit of hops. Finishes sweet and clean. Not outstanding, but a solid lager. Better than expected.

btg95 (17) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
Standard European pale lager. Pours a clear golden colour with a very thin head. Sweeter taste with a bitter finish, and a fairly watery and flat perception.

cards04 (1598) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
Just your average European pale lager. Aromas are sweet grains, apple, and skunk. Same flavors. Meh.

Pale lager ,through and through. Cereal grains stand out it the aroma and taste. dry, bready finish and lingering aftertaste.

GarnotingPete (771) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
Une belle polonaise, limpide avec peu de col. Des arômes légers de malts fruités et d’herbe verte pas déplaisants, mais sans trop de personnalité. Elle est peu amère, peu acide et avec un peu de sucres résiduels. Elle est mince, de corps leger, moyennement effervecente et offre une finale assez courte sur peu d’arômes et un peu de sucre. Bof.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2014
500ml can, kindly shared by djoeye. Bubbly white head. Lacing rings. Clear pale golden body. Pale malty and grassy nose. Malty flavours with a vague touch of caramel. Short grass hoppy end. Medium bodied and soft carbonated. Just alright. (Tromsø 30.01.2014).

djoeye (1206) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2014
White head, golden clear beer. Mild malts, pale malts in scents. Sweet malt, some caramel, lager taste. Seems to be half dry. Finishes with notes of milk chocolate, malts, bread. Not very special but drinkable. (50 cl can 5.5% b@Carrefour Chelm PL enjoyed@PolishRating with Rune 30thJan)

terefere (200) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle. Pale yellow, pours average but quickly diminishing head. Aroma of skunk, malt, metal. Taste is grassy, some hoppy bitterness, grain. High carbonation.

jmagnus87 (2332) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma of grains and skunk. Taste is light bitter. Grains and skunk. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, meh. Nothing too special here

foxo82 (673) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2013
Can - think this came from a shop on Rookery Road, Handsworth, Birmingham but I may be wrong. Pale lager with a musty aroma. Skunk and cheese. Not a good start. Taste is typical salty sweet-ish malt but with the saving grace of at least some East Euro metallic bitterness at the end. Actually this is growing on me - decent tasting lager. Not awful but not great either.
