2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hmmm, European Strong Lager? That’s what it taste’s like. If it’s something I’ve never heard of, it’s best to think it’s good as long as you don’t pour it down the drain. Gotta love a 7% lager that’s actually drinkable. Not much in the head department. Pours golden lagerish color. Sweet malty taste with mellow yeasty aroma and little carbonation. Good for a one time shot but not worth the airfare to Poland.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours translucent straw, small white milkish like head, good lacing, with light carbonation. Malts and sweet grass on the nose. Up front its sweet, grassy, slightly malty. Finishes the same. Clean palate, beer seems somewhat smooth. Not my favorite style, but this one is enjoyable.   Slight warming of the belly.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2004 Big malty aroma with lasting white head. Alcohol is strong in nose and flavor. A bit of hops offsets the mostly sweet character. Musky and earthy is a good way to describe this Polish strong lager.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unique aroma - combination of fruit, funky cheese, green beans, and malt (Lublin hops, maybe?). Slightly hazy orange-gold color, decent white head. Pretty clean malt flavor, hint of hop flavor and bitterness in the finish. Medium-full body, pretty smooth. Aroma kind of scared me, but it ended up being a flavorful but clean strong lager.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear, light golden color with a big fluffy white head. Some spotty lacing.
Musky nose with a bit of molasses and old cheese to it.
Good medium mouthfeel with full malt presence, nice hop counter and a pleasant creaminess . Slightly grainy with an earthy flavor or barley husk with a backbone of alcohol providing a warming sensation on the back of the palate.
A brew of character and strenght.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden color,medium sized white head that lasted for a decent amount of time.Malty,light fruit presence maybe some lemon but i might be reaching on that one,and the alcohol is definately present in the aroma.Malty lemon flavor with a nice sweet taste and the alcohol is there but seems to be hidden in a fairly decent way.The hops are fairly well done.This brew i'd have to say is a nice surprise,I was figuring on getting a potent alcohol concotion that would be hard to drink but this one actually is quite good and was well worth trying.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
MGC under a large medium lasting white head. Light skunky and herbal hop aroma when cool with some faint biscuity malt coming through as it warms. Medium intensity simple and tending to acrid bitter flavour predominates all the way through the start middle and finish. I didn't get anywhere near the sweetness, malts or alcohol reported by others. Faintly reminiscent of the very inelegant Masthead Storm Brew, and totally consistent with my low average ratings for lagers and said style.

Not too sure if I like the taste of this. The appearance was ok, golden with a mostly diminishing head, the aroma was of malt which followed through to the taste with some prunes present and too me the alcohol was a bit too noticeable.
