0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Pale yellow, very little head. Very sweet, bready smell. Taste was mostly of sweet malts. High carbonation. Not very good and entirely too sweet for my taste. (1/5 in other app)

Bottled, 500ml from the East European Supermarket, High St. Banbury. Hazy gold with short head. Fairly standard lager, there is a sweet maize like note, corn, grainy with a very slight lemony hop perhaps. Slightly cleaner than most. Ok.

Drat at Fermentation. Pale goden pour with a small fizzy head. Aroma is grainy pale malts and some honey sweetness. Decent body with light crisp grains and a quick finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I think the style of beer I dislike the most would have to be the European pale lager. For a beer of this style to NOT get a thumbs down from me is quite an accomplishment. Thatís how I feel about Okocim O.K. Beer - itís not bad but itís not really good either. It is, as its name states, simply okay.
I poured a 500ml can into a lager glass.
Appearance: Straw yellow to gold color; crystal clear; plenty of visible carbonation. Forms a large, white, foamy head which mostly dissipates but does leave some nice lacing on the glass.
Smell: A typical lager aroma for sure, but absolutely nothing off-putting.
Taste: Okocim O.K. Beer stands out in how bad it is not. Instead of having any sour qualities or obvious adjunct flavors, the palate here is clean and neutral. Iíll chalk this up to the fact itís in a can rather than a bottle so itís probably better preserved than most European macro lagers are by the time they reach my beer store.
As far as actual taste description there isnít much to say. Itís clean and mild in every aspect. No generic lager taste, no boiled corn water flavor, no apparent rice sweetness. Itís comparable to Schlitz or PBR, but cleaner tasting. If there were some sweetness in here itíd actually garner a thumbs up from me (see: Trader Joeís Nametag Lager). As it is itís inoffensive, but not worthy of a true recommendation.
Drinkability: I have no idea what summers are like in Poland, but if I were there and it was hot out I could definitely see myself kicking back a few cans of this to beat the heat. The mouthfeel is thin and wet with a watery texture. Thereís enough carbonation to make it crisp, but itís not spastic and out of control. Drank cold itís definitely refreshing and easy to slug down. The body seems a little lighter than the 5.6% ABV would indicate, but I doubt anyone would have any problem getting through a can or two.

From a can - Pale orange poor with a fairly big head. Smell is grassy, very lightly astringent. A little sweet, no bitterness. Medium body. Average.

Can. Pours a pale gold with a sticky head that dissipates. Light and sweet in the nose. Grainy, faint floral hops if you look. Some subtle pilsner malt. On tasting, pretty standard Euro lager. Light malt profile. Clean overall, touch fruity and grainy. Meh.

Kinda grassy and smooth. A very pale lager. Has a nice kick for such a light drink. Not too bad.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 Pale clear orangewith a soapy head. Smells like an Adjunct Lager, with grains, cooked corn and some faint malts but not offensively so. Same goes for the flavor as well, except for a metallic flavor. Light bodied and crisp, so itís easy to drink. Itís pretty familiar to those who drink American Adjunct Lagers, so itís fairly mediocre.

tallboy can. pale gold, clear, with a small soda-bubble head of white, quickly diminishing. sweet corn and cereals with fusel alcohol, petrol and calcium notes. light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, sourish vegetable-like hops, medium-low bitterness. poorly made in every way.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Yet another macromalty, slightly grassy lager with notes of apples, a sweet taste, reasonable body, almost no bitterness and astringent notes in the finish. Bleh.
