Bamsen78 (4395) - Sřnderborg, 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 (5407) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
500ml can from a corner supermarket in Gillingham as part of a six Polish beers for Ł5 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.

ElDesmadre (2279) - Mikołów, POLAND - APR 10, 2013
Can. Not too bad for what it is. Slightly malty, slightly less hoppy, with soapy notes coming through. Light sweetish, light bitterness. Drinkable macro-lager.

jredmond (6297) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottle purchased in Greenpoint after Torst. Pours a clear golden body with minor white lacing. Aroma is faint malt, grass and grain. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with notes of bland malt. Boring.

rauchbier (3665) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2013
Can, from an ethnic food store in Scunthorpe. Gold, fluffy and sustained white head and good condition. Gentle chalky malt notes and low piney hop resin in the nose, quite full but clean in the mouth with solid malt, mineral chalkiness and a good hop resin note that has an almost American feel, lingering citrusy hops and a muted grainy sweetness in the finish.
