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.

Can from polski sklep, hill top, West Bromwich. Golden beer with large foam head. Aroma is pale malts and a hint of puke. Taste is pale malts, cereal grain and some soft bread. Drinkable.

Bardzo kiepski eurolager. Pusty w smaku, bez goryczki. Kiepski. W aromacie chleb, jakieś melanoidyny, w każdym razie aromat ciężki. Podobnie ze smakiem - pusty, lekko utleniony. Poza tym woda.

Rather bland but this is what saves it from a rather unbalanced malty & sweet notes. Actually not bad in a strange way....

ILduce (223) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2015
500ml bottle. Golden with no head and lively carbonation. Grainy, hoppy, papery Lager with quick finish. Blah. Standard Polish mac.

Put this puppy deep in the freezer with the hope that it would make it more tolerable. If you opened the dictionary to the word mediocre you’d see a picture of this beer. I get carbonation & unsalted butter & sweet corn wayer & maybe a leaf from a hop tree in each sip. Honestly, this tastes like fake beer. Puts the ugh in ugly.

Buttery lager with faint herb aftertaste. Abrupt finish. Probably with diacethyl. Mediocre.

exeter (462) - 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.
