2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sparkling clear, light golden lager. Huge, frothy, white head. Spotty lacing.
The nose is lightly malty and floral. Subtle butterscotch notes.
The flavor is decently balanced and very mild. Malt flavors. Nice, mellow hop addition, but the malt wins out... a touch on the sweet side.
Light-bodied and thin. Watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, lightly sweet finish.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice look with a very ’gristy’ aroma. Chunky malt flavor, unfortunately with no bittering to balance it.

Thankfully, I bought only one bottle of this to sample. It pours a pale yellow with a thin head. Smells kind of skunky. Tastes watery with chemical after tones. Are you sure this isn’t one of Miller’s malt liquors?

This is some straight swill. Serve ice cold and try not to taste it too much. Kinda golden yellow, OK head--not bad so far. Too sweet, grainy and vegitative--bad, bad, bad.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(bottle - 500 ml) Mildly hazy yellow pour with a thin and fizzy white head that fades quickly. Aroma is kind of sweet with a grainy smell under the sweetness. Some stale hops perhaps. Taste has a fair amount of sweetness in it at the beginning with a malty middle and a dry and bitter hop finish. Kind of grainy and grassy at the end. Watery but surprisingly refreshing.

Draught. Aroma of nothing really. Clear golden colour with a short lasting white head. Very dry with a hint if bitter but not much else.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light clear gold in color, frothy white head and decent lace. Nose is malt, the front lightly sweet, the top is light, the finish is crisp, clean, dry, acidic, and a decent drinkable beer, but way to ’Light’ for me as a Belgium Strong Ale-O-Phile.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Another Eastern Euro bottle of beer that I knew nothing about before consuming. the label gives me assumption this was once the "beer of Polish kings". Further study of the label tells me beer is brewed by Carlsberg/Okocim. After popping the cap I’m greeted with a wet rag aroma. Piast pours a yellow dilluted color with some bubbling into the glass. Flavor is creamy, chalky East Euro swill with a corn alcohol aftertaste. Is this what young Polish drinkers prefer in a pilsner? This beer reminded me of Coors Henry Joseph’s, a beer of my youth.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Grainy nose and first sip but very watery aftertaste. Slightly grassy at the tail end.
