Ahh. The magickal formulae of flowery aroma sprinkled with honey, mildly caressed hops and divine earthly water . A nectar to behold and drink.

I find this beer to be extremely refreshing on a hot summer day. It’s golden and nicely fizzy, but it still has a pleasant hoppy flavor.

This is a good beer. I wouldn't go out of my way to get it but it has a very nice, light, refreshing taste. Not a bad smell and quite enjoyable.

Great sweet aroma and great flavour. Tried it again recently and noticed that its a good pilsener. Worth noticing is the perfect apearance and colour, not too much foam. Im sure ill be drinking more of these soon.

my bottle doesn’t say pilne, it says 1525. other than that, i think i’m drinking the right one. smell of fresh grain. nothing offputting.. drinking out of some glass that makes a crazy amount of bubbles. nice sized head on this beer. beautiful dark yellow color. very nice looking lager. taste is fresh sweet grain, little touch of grassy hops on the end. very nice balance. extremely easy to drink. 5.5 by volume. really yummy stuff. Not huge flavor but perfect on this hot day... couldn’t have a better beer right now.

Wow 1525 that’s old beer, you would think that it would be a little more… lets see … the word I’m looking for is… I don’t know but 500 years, and its still kina average tasting to me. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed this beer down to the last drop, but I felt as if something was missing?

Damage (77) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2005
Pours a clear, gold with excellent carbonation and decent lacing. Malt nose with floral and woody hints. Nicely hopped with even bitterness to a clean finish. Very nice Polish beer. (500ml bottle)

A surprisingly light and easy drinking lager. Moderately carbonated with a nice crisp mouthfeel that provides a smooth finish. One of my favorites from Poland so far.

Pours bright gold into a stein. Bright white head with medium retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Mild skunky cookie aromas. Crisp with sweet bread, caramel and cookie upfront turning a mild saaz finish.
