Eructoblaster (3435) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2004
Limpid golden body topped with a decent bubbly head. Good malty/bready aroma that carries some unusual citrus hints. Average malty taste with light hoppy notes. Decent and moderately bitter final. As for the other polish beers I’ve been tasting, it has nothing to impress me, but it is not bad at all. Between this and most of the american lagers, the choice is obvious...

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Pours clear gold with a large white head. Sweet floral aroma. Flavor is not sweet, however. Crisp dry flavor with nice floral, herbal hops. Nicely balanced, with a refreshing dry finish. Watery mouthfeel with good carbonation. Nice but not great.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2004
Pale golden color with an initially frothy white head. Aroma has some hops to it. Some bitterness. A bit of corn flavour. A little better then I was expecting.

Tessic (967) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2004
This one pours a golden yellow with a bright white foamy head. First sniff smelt like Blue or another strong pilsner. Scents of corn flakes and sugar. Smells like all the other Polish beer I have had before. First taste was very smooth. Tasted more corn and light alts with a vry slight hop flavour to it. Not bad but the same as the rest I have had. Good on a hot day.

Crockett (1035) - 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 (6422) - 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 (2459) - 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 (5179) - 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 (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2003
Light golden, white quick diminishing head. Nicely bitter flavour. Sweet malt. Overall a well rounded polish pilsener.
