2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Typical Eastern European strong ’alcoholics’ lager’ from a can picked up at a Polish night shop. Thick, creamy, dense, lacing, snow white head, cristal clear golden blonde colour with strong fizz. Aroma of soaked corn, very strong ’can iron’, old books, sweaty grains, hint of grass. Neutral taste with strong minerally carbo, simple and very grainy, as well as very metallic middle phase with a hint of sweetish corn, surprisingly light body, more or less neutral finish with a brief suggestion of grassy hops without true bitterness, but bizarrely the alcohol stays hidden. Metallic, grainy flavour lingers. Cheap and expectedly not good, but it did strike me how the alcohol has been kept remarkable well in the background seen its strength, paired with light body and low sweetness, and in that respect not the worst one I had in this particular style.

Golden, no head. Faint aroma and taste of malt, honey, wet grain. Tiring brew.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
18th Nov 2015: 500ml Black can at home, into a UK pint sleeve. Clear, clean golden body with a full white head that tried to stay around. Slight aroma of floral hops and a corn/cereal hint. The taste was leaning towards sweet maltiness with a semi-hop calming bitterness. Doesn’t feel like a Park Bench beer and the alcohol content was nicely hidden: I thought this OK.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark straw color with a taller slowly diminishing off-white head. Very industrial in smell, with corn and cutting oils. I catch a bit of grape skin as well. Sweet start. A generic sweet flavor. No real malt presence. Not much of a hops presence either. A sweet malt liquor, with very little in the way of beer overtones. I can’t say the flavor is overly bad, it just does not have any malt backbone. Brewed with a bit too much sugar perhaps. 2/10

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can 500ml (Carrefour, Warsaw). Clear amber color, small white head. Grainy, sweetish apple aroma. Light-body for this abv. I wonder what happened to malts. Papery, thin, apple alcohol. Not as sweet as some mocnes, but badly lacks both malts and hops.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Canned, 500 ml. Pours a clear golden beer with a nice white head on top. Aroma is malty and cardboard, really lager-ish. Flavour is sweet, boozy and dusty. Quite boring, high level of carbonation and not much else. Just hobo beer in my book.
