wxman (1521) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Pours a clear pale golden with some white short-lived head. Very mild malt aroma. Taste is sweet malt, some vegital character and mild hops. Thirstquenching, but uninteresting.

berkshirejohn (4961) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2008
50cl can, 6% ABV. Amber with a rapidly fading white head; sweet malt aroma; honeyed flavour, smooth and syrupy in the mouth without being oversweet; some bitter hops develop but giving a cardboard taste and feel; the finish being sticky and sweet. Different and drinkable, but not memorable.

heavy (2265) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 10, 2008
08/08 Tatra Jasne Pelne, 0.5 l can on a gas station near Warszawa. Interesting candy malt with ale yeast characteristics. Sweetish flavor, also quite like Belgian ale, with flower and honey malted. Some sweet fruitness as well, so a bit cloying. Full bodied, with long sweetish finish where honey is felt the most. Now I see it’s classified like a pilsener, well, it is surely the oddest pilsener I’ve ever tried. So weird...like you’re drinking an ale, but I like it.

Courtesy of oh6gdx, thanks Pade! Very pale yellow color, big bubbles, small white head. Papery malty, sweetcorn nose. Foamy lively carbonation. Sweet corn malty flavor, alcohol harshness. Some apply flavors. Empty alcoholic finish. Pilsener? No.

Rated: june 2007
Bottle brown, 500 ml, extract of wort 12 %
Poured deep golden colour, head is foamy to frothy, carbonation is low, colour is deep golden to burned but still light amber, leave some lacing, head is +2 and disappearing at medium speed. Aroma of some harsh bitterness at the beginning. Strickes nose than in the background some malty base of malted barley, though aroma seems not well blanced, some traces of citrus like lemon. Flavour is more hoppy than Warka Jasne Pelne, hops are quite nice what give some refreshing of the beer, it is a bit wattery and quite flat after 3 minutes what makes it easy going and not tangy. It is dry, a bit bisquity but not as much as Zywiec beer. Some mild nice, malty sweetness. Fresh, mild. Palate is dry, flat, a little bit wattery. Not very interesting pilsener type.

Dec, 2007 500ml can from local East European shop. A firm, smooth beer with a mild malty and fruit flavour. Some dusty lager hops. OK. [2.1]
May 2008 500ml can from local East European shop. £1.19p. Creamy carbonation. Full mouthfeel. Quite fruity for a lager. Few hops. Licorice notes. Malty alcohol. Spangles. Sugary. It’s not good, but it’s not offensive and it is drinkable.[1.9]
Nov, 2012 500ml can from local East European shop. Burnished gold appearance. Grainy and slightly sweet. Low bitterness, with a lingering noble hop taste in the finish - quite tickly and just a bit smudged. Soft carbonation and palate - slightly creamy. A drinkable and unobjectionable pale lager. Slightly higher abv than average, but this is only just noticeable in the mouthfeel. [2.3]
Sept, 2014 500ml yellow can - Tatra Beer - Full-Bodied Taste. From local supermarket, The Rose; part of a six Polish lagers for £6.50 deal. Pleasant honey taste. Quite refreshing. Soft and inoffensive. Just a touch of noble hops in the finish. [2.5]
