2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Aroma: weak, mostly malt, with some weak but pleasant hoppy flavour. Minimal head, fully diminishing. Light bitterness. Medium body. Better than mass-produced Polish pale lagers, you can drink it with some pleasure, but it’s nothing exceptional.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep roasted nutty aroma. For a premium lager, this isn’t a bad beer. Rather distinct, so if you grew up in Poland then moved away, I bet this brings back memories when you track it down stateside. That nice-ness aside, this isn’t that great. Thin, rather flat, with sparse huge bubbles (in the obligatory Sam Adams over engineered glass). Actually, excellence in marketing. This is O.K. beer

This is a big bag of meh. Bit of a funky taste and aroma. Draft at the groovetastic Epcot Food & Wine Festival.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
16.9floz/500ml bottle into a Samuel Adams glass; served cold.
Aroma: Just some light malt. A little sour yeast. Harmless, straightforward.
Appearance: Crystal clear dark yellow body with a foamy, white, head.
Taste: White bread tasting malt. No hop bitterness at all.
Palate: Light, with a short, mildly sweet finish.
Overall: Just a lager that tastes like white bread. If you like that, this one’s for you.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Weak malty aroma. Small head disappearing to thin layer. Clear golden body. Sweet taste with some bitterness. Not so OK for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl can served cold in a lager glass. Dae code(?) seems to indicate 2013.
The carbonation looks (high) higher than it feels (medium), with lots of rather coarse carbonation rising even quite a few minutes after the pour. No doubt this contributes to the very good retention of the head and very good lacing. Excellent clarity in this deep golden beer.
Probably is more flavorful than average for style, but clearly would benefit from a bit more hopping.
O: this was a very pleasant surprise, and very high on the drinkability dimension.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear Gold Color, Decent Head, Some Lacing. Grainy Aroma. Grainy, Slight Malt, Semi Sweet. Decent for what it is. Otherwise nothing exceptional. Drinkable but I would pass and look for something else...

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
The can/bottle calls this a "Full Pale Beer". It tastes like a slightly more American minded Euro-Lager.
