2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a 500ml. brown bottle with no freshness date. Made a decent appearance, poured a highly carbonated golden with a large foamy
white that quickly settles into a sticky thin lacing. Had a grassy and grainy
aroma with some stale yeastiness. A crisp, lightish medium bodied mouth feel, average drinkability. Bland tasting,
a pale grainy maltiness with a subtle grassy hop bitterness and a dry, yeasty, malty finish.
It least this was cheap enough, not much else to recommend it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle in FL. Poured an amber color with a small frothy white head that diminished quickly with some lacing. Moderate grassy grain aroma. Medium body with a thin texture. Same grass hop flavor with a short finish. Worth having once.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Underachieving beer for the price of individually-sold pint. Has similar qualities (appearance, taste, aroma, and color) as your typical mass-produced American pilsners. Does have a slightly better taste and higger alcohol content.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. This bottle showed the ABV as 5.7% rather than the 5.3% shown on this site. White small fizzy head that mostly diminsihed with poor lacing, carbonated, transparent and a golden hue. Aroma was malty, very mild hops, some skunkiness, and some sweet corn. Flavor was malt and light hops. Tingly mouthfeel. Light body. Nothing special going on with this one.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2005 Not bad at all; and good for the style. Gold color, light palate. A strange and unpleasant vegetable aroma; fortunately what aroma is there is light, and none of this aroma is found in the simple pleasant in the flavor of cheap beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not an epic beer but not bad for the style. Deep golden color and plenty of carbonation. Watery texture but crisp on the palate. Very dry malty flavor. Typical corn malty aroma but more distinct. Notably, there was no skunk flavor as present in many Eastern European imports, indeed this was a very fresh product -- shows the difference a brown vs green bottle can make. American macrobrews and green-bottle brewers could learn a few things from this outfit. (Note: The bottle I had lists 5.7% alcohol, not 5.3%, so they might have recently changed their recipe.)

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sparkling golden, foamy white. Stale aromas... typical Polish lager: grass, straw, DMS, metallica. Semi-sweet flavor with some Polish-hop action and a watery, metallic ending.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale golden body. Musk pear aroam with a dry, hollow cookie malt flavor. Pretty boring stuff. Gotta put some filler in.
