Crockett (1008) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2004
500ml bottle. Clear as anything you could imagine (excluding water). Big bubble carbonation, head was gone before I knew it. Skunky hopped aroma, with herbs and grass. Body is crisp and clear, and a bit boring. Flavours are appley skunky, mild spice/pepper. The malts are immature tasting to non-existant. I don't know what sounds worse. The finish is unappetizing.

PorterPounder (5556) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2004
Light, fluffy white head, peppery, Saaz induced hoppy aroma. Light orange appearance. Sweet, candy like flavor, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Not altogether unpleasnat. One of the better Polish beers I have had. Just a tad metallic on the finish.

Dorwart (2375) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Decent rocky head from the pour. Minimal carbonation. Light malt and hops aroma. Pale gold in color. Flavor is a little weak but not bad. Sizeable hops presence. Crisp and clean taste. Finish is slightly bitter. A decent beer but hen again how many decent imported pilsners are there.

jgb9348 (4738) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2003
Golden coloured body, thin white head and trillions of small bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass. Strong aroma of malt, metal and a bit of hops. Light-bodied; Standard european lager taste with malt more noticeable than hops and a mild metallic background. Aftertaste mild for the style. Overall, not too special, yet another Polish Lager. I bought this 500 mL bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York.

mds (2209) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2003
Light golden, white quick diminishing head. Nicely bitter flavour. Sweet malt. Overall a well rounded polish pilsener.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2003
Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Yellow clear appearance with little or no head formation. Spicy / perfumy aroma. Flavour continues on the spicy theme with hints of floral tastes and hoppy finish.

crazyvin (1942) - New York, USA - AUG 4, 2003
poured a golden like color with almost no head. A slight skunky smell masked buy a malty presence. Taste carbonatied and malty and finished mildly bitter.

larsniclas (5613) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2003
A sourish fresh aroma with a hint from toffee. Rather thin palate but a fine fruity flavour with citrus and toffee.

Aurelius (4178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2003
Doughy alcohol aroma. Average appearance. Some fruitiness in an otherwise dry lager. Palate goes watery, and the hop aftertaste isn't especially pleasant. Nothing to suggest buying another, unless there's a happy hour at a Polish restaurant.
