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.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2016 Thanks to Chopz for leftovers! Pours a big foamy bubbly white head and has a clear golden appearance. Decent lacing. Aromas of malts, grains and hints of corn. Flavours of toasty malts, a bit sweet, still some of that corn and grainy taste. Not as bad as say, Rolling Rock, that?s for sure. Actually fairly easy to drink and not to heavy on the palate. Not a bad drinking brew.

50cl can from random store in Kraków. Poured golden color with a thick white head. Sweet malty, some cereals, wet hay in aroma. Flavor has grainy malts, sweetness, is slighty boozy, white bready. Finish has hint of apple. Not the worst industrial lager out there.

Pours clear gold with tiny head. Aroma is of light skunk, corn, spice, and syrupy cereal. Tastes of cereal, sweet corn, and skunk. Light bodied with average carbonation and kind of a bitter finish.

Aromat lekko mokrego psa. Klarowne, piana mało obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa. Wodniste, przegazowane, lekko słodowe. Goryczka niska. Bardzo kiepskie piwo.

Tutaj przynajmniej nic nie śmierdzi. Tzn. w mojej butelce nic nie śmierdziało. W innych - nie wiadomo.

RobBestwick (803) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 18, 2015
Bottle. Grainy and slightly hoppy aroma. Pours golden in colour with little head. Quite a lot of carbonation. Very standard lager flavour - grainy with a little bit of malt. Medium bodied with a quiet finish. Drinkable but not very interesting.

Typical pale lager. MAlt, grain, rather dirty taste. Nothing special. Nice looking label

Listigovers (851) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2015
Golden with white head. Some sparkle. Smells grainy, fairly strong scent. Flavor is fairly sweet, aftertaste is not very complex, light bodied, a bit on the sweet side but fairly clean taste.
