Dorwart (2482) - 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 (5323) - 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.

wnp22 (698) - 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.

larsniclas (6338) - 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 (4834) - 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.

dberger624 (1028) - Phila, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2003
Bottled. Drain pour on this one. Tasted and smelled bad. Poured and looked like a pils. That's all it had going for it.

File under beats BMC. Nothing in particular to rave about, just a well made beer with perfectly suitable balance and nothing to really offend. Nothing particularly to recommend it either. I did enjoy it. Goes extremely well with good friends and a couch that has a view of the Empire State building and the Chrysler building. If you have that, you HAVE to try one of these.
