1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle at Krasnopolski, Stockholm.
Pale golden with a white head. Sweet with grain, hay, some butter and bread. Thin and really boring.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
No taka sobie ta perla. Piana owszem stoji mocna ale srednio trwala. Aromat chmieli lubelskich wyczuwalny. Aromat jednak ulotny. Smak srednio wyrazisty ze sporym nagazowaniem. Piwo musuje do samego konca. Finisz lekko goryczkowy i ozezwiajacy.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden colour with low steady and medium body. Nose of mild hops. Taste of light malt, ripe hops, light barley, clover and warm grass. Easy to drink but just nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can shared with McTapps. Easy going, very quaffy Lager which appears to be a Helles with its typical, bit sweetish aromas. Nice one with no sensations in. Simple quality.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium gold and sparkling with heavy carbonation and donned by a shortlived fluff of white. Grassy, minty, herbal and spicy is the hop dominated nose with just a wink of pale malt. Hefty, prickly carbonation blinds the palate a little but hastens its sweep from start to swallow. The body light and finish crisp. Grassy aroma matches the grassy, hoppy palate. Mint, lemon-pepper and flat leaf parsley (a first!) comes through as does a hint of sourish rue. The bitterness is shortlived passed the tonsils and it fades off quickly. A short showing of palest grain and haybale straw offers little balance. Easy drinking to be sure but nothing superb to write home about. Another clean cut Polish lager, Not bad!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Green bottle of 500 ml, boight in a polish shop in Arnhem. Poured into my Guinness pint glass.
Nice appearance, with yellow golden body and two fingers of soapy white head. Good retention, no lacing.
Malty aroma, quite typical of a lager, but this one smells of some hops too.
Taste is quite malty as well, with a stale bread flavour, overall sweet as expected, but it turns better on the aftertaste, where you can taste some bitterness and taste some hops.
Thin to medium on the body, quite carbonated.
I got maybe 12-13 different beers from that shop and this was easily the second best. I was afraid that it would taste skunky, but that was not the case. Very refreshing brew, from the ones you can drink all night long in a bar.
