SilkTork (5278) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, - 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! Itís a drinkable global pale lager. Not very tasty, but at this price you donít expect that. Somebody had this listed as a Premium Lager. Gawd help us! Premium Lager is, of course, purely a marketing exercise - itís the beers that a brewery will put most of its advertising behind, and will put a "premium" on the price as a result. Itís not a fucking beer category - and even if it was, this beer is as far from it as it is possible to be, for fuckís sake. Anyway, yeah, the beer is drinkable. And as expected. Bland. With a slightly filthy taste, But drinkable. And cheap.

exeter (362) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2014
Pours a copper colour with a microhead and slips away quickly. No lace. Smells skucky, but the flavour is a little better. The usual Euro pale lager flavour..sweet with a little bitterness and some skunk.

Holmen2 (1232) - NORWAY - SEP 25, 2014
From bottle at Novotel Centrum Krakow 25.09.14. Clear golden. Foamy and persistent white head and lacing. Lots of bubbles. Moderate, but fine aroma, of pilsner hops. Equally moderate, but slightly crude, pilsner taste. Well balanced. Slightly earthy bitterness in aftertaste.

Macieju (9) - - SEP 1, 2014 does not count
Piwo ohydne, wodniste, o nieprzyjemnym smaku i zapachu, do zmęczenia tylko po mocnym schłodzeniu

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle into a glass. Medium golden hay pour. No real head, little halo of white. Aroma is metallic, cereal, alcohol. Taste is surprisingly crappy. Tastes like a high-gravity malt likka, not a medium-boost pale lager. Super sugary, stale cereal, sugary booze. Not at all refreshing or drinkable.

blackisle (867) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2014
Backlog Krakow 2010. Sweet malty nose, grainy, grass, cardboard; clear pale golden, frothy white head, disappears quickly; taste light sweet, light bitter, bit metallic; medium body, oily to watery texture; bit more bitterness in aftertaste.

POLK (2219) - HÝrning, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2014
Realy golden boring Polish lager. No aroma, fine foam and then Bland dull metallic taste.

ljthiessen (517) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle. Clear, light golden pour with a small white head that fades quickly. Lightly grainy aroma, with clean malt and a touch of hops. Crisp flavour with light malts, slightly floral with a bit of hops. Finishes sweet and clean. Not outstanding, but a solid lager. Better than expected.

btg95 (19) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
Standard European pale lager. Pours a clear golden colour with a very thin head. Sweeter taste with a bitter finish, and a fairly watery and flat perception.

cards04 (1848) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
Just your average European pale lager. Aromas are sweet grains, apple, and skunk. Same flavors. Meh.

stevoj (2340) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Pale lager ,through and through. Cereal grains stand out it the aroma and taste. dry, bready finish and lingering aftertaste.
