2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Perfectly drinkable PL, with a clean, filtered yet not watery taste, some underlying sugared sweetness.
NOTE: not to be confused with Walter 4.2%, same logo/brand, but the 4.2% version comes in glass bottles from A. Le Coq, while the 4.0% version comes in aluminum cans from an as-yet-determined contract brewing facility in Poland.,.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Canned 500ml. -From well known shop called "kod Bosanca" near Leibnitz. Polish version, 4.0%. Pale golden coloured, medium sized white head, weak bready nose. Weak malty, some herbs and totally nothing else except water. Whether this was a try to brew a beer with 0.4% or 4.0% is entirely irrelevant, result is definitely the same...at the end it’s same shit...

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can, 4.0%. Produced in Poland for RIMI. This beer has a decent malty aroma and a nice golden body. Taste is malty and moderately sweet with some breadiness. Good mouthfeel for a 4% beer, not too watery. Low to medium bitterness in the aftertaste.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
NOTE - sources for this brew rotate amongst the Baltic Olvi-owned breweries (such as Ragutis), and have even reached Poland. IMHO, the Ragutis (.lv), Cesu (.lt) and A le Coq (.ee) ones should all be merged.
This is for a 4.0% can, from Latvia Cesu.
4 Vague plasticky aroma.
2 Pale gold, brieg scummy head
4 Sickly plasticky retronasals and taste, sweet and creamy.
2 Smooth palate, OK carbonation. So smooth it’s almost slick. Finish is more damned plastic, and some thin chemical hoppy bitterness..
6 Pale lager rarely excites me, this one certainly doesn’t. Relatively free of nastiness, which is quite unusual for Cesu.
