1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle - thanks Marduk!
Very poor burnt plastic aroma, urgh! Pale, brief head. Less horrific in the mouth, smooth, gentle carbonation. Bland sweetish malts. Finish is a bit plasticky, but has a tiny bitter tang too. Feeble, and unpleasant. Van Pur van puke.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops, with notes of skunk. Sweetish. Malty and estery flavour, with notes of hops. Bitter aftertaste. Not bad for a Pale Lager.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml. can @ home. Picked up from Anna Maria in Antwerp. BBF 05/04/2014. Ooh, looks like this one is a premium and not a pale lager, classy. Pours a crystal-clear honey amber, white head that almost instantly vanishes. Smells of sweet starch, quite a bit of sweet apples, faint hay. Taste is sweet starch, light apples, light grains, hay, sweetish, touch white sugar, faint minerals in the back. Body has a starch quality to it, light, spritzy carb. Not stellar but better than most pale lager & more or less drinkable.

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.

Clear, gold color. Short lasting, white head. Aroma is only malt, but very low intensive. Light bitterness. Don’t drink it.

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!
