2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly clourdy golden colour with a large dense white head. Mild corn aroma with some sugars and some malt. Medium to Light-bodied; Strong malty taste with some sweetness and not much else. Aftertaste tastes of malt and some faint fruity sweetness (apples/pears). Overall, a decent beer...different than other Polish Lagers. I bought this 500 mL bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 01-November-2003.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours light golden with pithy, soap-like head - not much lacing. Malty, wort-like aroma. Flavor has some redeeeming qualities, a bit too yeasty, but full of body. Hops are not very apparent and missed much. Too straight forward with the maltiness. Alcohol is very evident. Strong finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I have a new favorite Polish beer.
Pours a light yellow with a very nice head that left minimal lacing.
Smells a very malty with the slightest hint of hops.
Tastes malty with some fruit esters and a grainy finish. Rather crisp, actually.
Mouthfeel is full and minerally. Drinkability is very nice. If I ever go to Poland I know what the first beer I'm going to want to try will be.

Earthy malt aroma. Light gold, decent label. Musky, a little fruit, malty and moderately bitter. Good mouthfeel, slightly tart, proper carbonation.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2005 Golden with a big white head. Unusually complex aroma for a lager. Hops, fruit, malt. Pretty good lager taste. Full bodied and no bite. I can taste the alcohol, however. Also a slight corn taste. An above average lager.

I found the overwhelming sense to be sweet. A nice enough and inoffensive brew but the lack of balance holds it back. The 7% does not dominate but is there.

Clear and crisp, a good Summer beer. Not so much a lager as it a heavy weizenbock. Lots of lemon throughout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Definitely in the Mocne style,this medium gold beer has a nice white head which leaves respectable lace on top of a nose of bready, earthy malt with notes of grass and hay and...playdough?, with just a slight wiff of DMS. Flavor is slightly sharp/acidic over a pleasant malty, bready flavor balance that drys a bit on the finish...pretty good but not great, I'd drink it again though.
