drjay44 (2740) - Salida, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2013
500 ml. bottle. Pours a thin, well retained white head, over a clear yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is pils malts, slight grassy, herbal notes from the hops, no esters....taste is cereal from the malts, mild but harsh bitterness from the hops, finishing bitter.....mouth feel light and watery, carbonation makes a soda quality, moderate acid finish. This beer has the minimal aromas and flavors from the ingredients, and the light watery qualities of this insipid style. BJCP 4/2/10/3/5

Bamsen78 (3428) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear pale golden with wiry white head. Clear aroma of hops with a yeasty note and a touch of cardboard. Bitter, hoppy onset. Medium mody. Grainy sweetness towards the finish. Not bad but definitely nothing in the vicinity of the best beer in the world (this is a reference to an old Polish song, the first verse of which reads "The best beer in the world is Lezajsk Pelne."

SilkTork (5279) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
500ml can from a corner supermarket in Gillingham as part of a six Polish beers for £5 deal. How can you say no to that - especially as all, apart from this one, were 7% abv! It’s a drinkable global pale lager. Not very tasty, but at this price you don’t expect that. Somebody had this listed as a Premium Lager. Gawd help us! Premium Lager is, of course, purely a marketing exercise - it’s the beers that a brewery will put most of its advertising behind, and will put a "premium" on the price as a result. It’s not a fucking beer category - and even if it was, this beer is as far from it as it is possible to be, for fuck’s sake. Anyway, yeah, the beer is drinkable. And as expected. Bland. With a slightly filthy taste, But drinkable. And cheap.
