2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from some weird international shop in south Ashford. Pale gold clear not much of a white head. Smells skunky. It is in a green glass bottle. Smells slightly of diacetyl tastes slightly of diacetyl and a bit of cereal. Not much hop, touch of buttered toast. Aroma is poor, mouthfeel is not great, finish is only crisp due to the carbonation. Very faint lemon hop. Bit of buttered toast on the aftertaste. Just about ok, but not great.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle from Piotr & Pawel w Wawie. Clear pale yellow colour, large and creamy white head, nice hoppy nose, quite green and fresh. Elegant malty base, slightly grainy, with lots of fresh hops, resiny and grassy. Near to a German Pilsener. Underrated in my opinion, as it’s a solid lager with a convincing hop profile.

Bottle watching the hapless Poles eliminate themselves Vs Czech Republic, 16/06/12. Bright gold/head slimming to a slick. Light grassy, rabbit hutch, medium metallic aroma with Madeira cake dunked in palinka hints. Slightly chewy with the alcohol noticeable; rubbery with slight conifer and bitterness, papery tones. Finishing breadstick hints. Not great.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, from an ethnic food store in Scunthorpe. Gold, fluffy but shortlived white head and moderate condition. Gentle honey sweet graininess in the nose, Nicely balanced in the mouth with a gentle sweetness of malt countered by a muted chalky hop bitterness, nothing too extreme on either side but then again nothing offensive, brief tingle of bitterness and faint alcoholic spiritiness in the finish
