Bif (1295) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 23, 2012
Bottle- pours a light golden color with a good head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of grain, fruit sweetness and hint of citrus. Similar to the aroma. Flavor of grain and a mild fruit sweetness and bit of citrus. Has an easy bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, quite smooth and somewhat refreshing. Decent Euro Lager. Good for a few.

Tmoney99 (10076) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2012
Draft. Poured clear straw color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Light to moderate grainy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a light smooth sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Worth having once.

jhliesen (692) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle--I thought the label was a bit over the top, but it wasn’t far off the mark. The beer does remind of Chicago. Good straw color with a small head. The aroma is the typical grainy, rice smell, yuck. The taste has a bit of malt mixed with grain, bur fuller than your bud type of beer. The finished is buttery. Euro deli, 2.99

csaso (1225) - Missouri, USA - APR 10, 2012
Bottle - average sized foamy head, dark strawe color, malty aroma and flavor with mild hop balance, pretty generic but not too bad - a little disappointed though, as I thought I was buying a beer from Poland to check it off my country list on RB here, guess I will have to find another one

jkwood04 (3403) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 18, 2012
500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours golden with a thick, white head. Aroma of caramel and pale malts, plus a little hops. Flavor the same, with a few off-notes. Average texture. Not bad.

Radek Kliber (6321) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle 500 ml
Aroma: neutral, mild grainy character, very light on hop. Gentle continental hints.6+
Appearance: amber- gold, clear with large white fine cap. Good lace shown.4-
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: medium bodied. Slight grainy tartness with malty behind. Bready rye sourdough. Some but not much hop element to it. Forgettable.

Scrapersnbeer (1434) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Dark straw yellow and looks somewhat unfiltered and very active. Standard lager aroma that is neither outstanding nor offensive. Sweet malt taste, but probably no corn used. There is a hint of bitter and spice on finish, but no otherwise no hop presence. Beer brewed for import only, as Stawski is a Chicagoan.

garrison (749) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Purchased from Jungle Jim’s World Market in Fairfield, Ohio - Alright, this one filled my jelly jar with a grain-smelling golden lager that was topped with a white head of foam. Tastewise, this is an okay lager, but nothing great.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Lightly hazed golden yellow body with mild carbonation under a long-lasting pillowy white head. Grassiness is the foremost aroma, but there is also a presence of pale malt, candied wildflowers and coppery coins. First sip was buttery caramel corn. Ack. Progressively, the flavor varies yet remains consistently bad, with raw alcohol tugs, metallic leans, and sugary slaps. Rather thick-bodied, causing this 500ml experience to approach upon being vomitous. Exquisitely difficult to finish since the presiding flavor is a fat, sugary ethanol. This is about what I expected from a EU Strong. Bleh. ~~~~~~ "Pint" bottle from Kenwood Liquors, Homer Glen, IL, purchased approx. 2 weeks ago.

RobertDale (2927) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUL 9, 2011
330 ml bottle. Pours a pale gold with an average white head. Aroma of malt, grain and a bit of hops. Taste is similar, on the sweet side. OK.
