Musty, funky malt aroma, like old gym socks. Deep golden body with small white creamy head, lots of carbonation. Taste is initially malt followed by some stinky soft cheese. Finish is mostly yeast, cooked vegetables and funk.

500ml can. Sweet pale golden beer with barely any condition. Rather watery texture and absolutely no awareness of the 7.6% abv. Moderate powdery hop bitterness late in the finish. It’s inoffensive, and the honey sweetness is attractive. It’s also very cheap at around £1.08 a can from my local corner supermarket. You can drink this, folks. Knock a few back, and you’ll get drunk. Cheap legal high.

Can from somewhere in the North. Sweet tasting light golden ale, no head. It’s nowhere near as strong tasting as its alcohol percentage suggest it should be, in fact it just tastes like ordinary low-grade Polish lager.

50cl can from my local Londis. Straw with a thin white head; grainy aroma; sweet grainy taste; with a dry grassy bitterness, and a slightly metallic aftertaste. A fairly standard Polish import.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml. can @ home. Procured from Anna Maria in Antwerp. BBF 23/01/2014. Ah, another Pale Lager from Poland, my 10th! (I checked). He Polish Pale lagers were some of the first beers I ticked, this is a total nostalgia tick for me, they were not that good back then as well :) Crystal-clear pale apple golden with a frothy & soapy collapsing head. Grainy nose, slightly sweet, faint candy, sugary & bready, light smell & actually okay. Taste is sweet grains, light candy, soap, slightly boozy, corn cookies, odd soap, cleaning agents + grain alcohol (manageable level) aftertaste. High carb. Body feels too oddly thick for me esp. for the style. The cleaning agents & soap flavours are too dominant for me but for the style this is actually okay.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can shared at the ChrisO Flags of Many Nations Easter Tasting 2013 - London. Pours clear yellow with a fine white cream head. Sugary pale, bready malt nose with light honey. Medium to big sweet flavor with lightly papery dough malts, white sugar. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Somewhat creamy, in fact. Sweet, pale white bread to finish. Very simple, lots of white bread, dough and hay, but enjoyable in its simplicity.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can bought in Leuven. Clear amber-golden colour with low head and medium to smooth body. Nose of malt and hops. Taste of dusty ripe hops, aged grains, straw, leaves, burnt toast and hay. Very dry finish with floral hints. Solid strong pils but it just ain’t something special at all.
