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.

So Stanley likes this. They do import Apis as well so maybe… Straw color with a diminished white head. Pale malt and menthol hops dominate the nose. I now know which brew I should sniff when I have a cold. This really does have a “Vicks Vapor Rub” scent. Fairly light and smooth palate – no complaints there. Light malt and very light fruit sweetness in the front. Middle has a touch of herbal hops. His one has a little burn that grows into the finish and linger. Polish Pils, I’ll bite, but that does not necessarily mean too much. 4/10

3/20/15 (Bottle) - Golden brown pour, nice head, mild carbonation. Fruit scents and sweet smell. Taste of decent malts and hops, crisp feel. Nothing special.

LowBrau (115) - Tonawanda, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Medium gold, with a substantial white head. Nose is sweet - grain and maybe corn. Taste is balanced - not too sweet, not too bitter, somewhat tart. Aroma is grain and alcohol, very little hops.

Headbanger (3773) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2014
11.2 oz bottle 8/21/14 (Garden Fresh Market)-38° in Lager Glass-Pours a clear light golden with a small white head. Aroma of grass, hay, hops, and grains. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is a decent lager. Not bad.

drdisque (745) - Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2014
From a bottle at a hole in the wall bar in Chicago. Crystal clear. Crisp watery rice flavor. Tastes like a southeast Asian lager. Decent. I’d rather drink this than a Bud Light.

r464 (2254) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Deep golden yellow with a quickly fading white head. Rather sweet malt, nuts and cereal. Trailing finish with a bit of a trashy aftertaste. A bit more flavor than a standard macro.

coldbrewky (1667) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Murghh..Eeep. Bleh. These are the mental sounds I make when thinking back on this corn based crap. Even the head seemed destined for a quick death as it never truly formed. Dark pee golden. Uuugggh.

stevoj (3726) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Medium golden lager with small creamy head. Musty, cabbage, cooked vegetables aroma. Taste is mostly malt with some of the aforementioned cabbage. Mouthfeel is medium weight, and fairly slick.

Pale Yellow, Medium Head, Dissipates Quickly, Little Lacing. Grainy Aroma. Grainy, Corn, Light Bitter Finish. Standard Euro Lager, Drinkable, nothing too good or exciting. Definitely not worthy family name, nor is a prized trophy of 50 years of search. Point your finger at a shelve with different Euro pales or Lagers and you’ll get the same result. I guarantee it. Pass it...
