UPDATED: SEP 19, 2008 500mL can from the LCBO (5.5% abv, as opposed to the listed 6% abv). I was totally unaware that this beer existed in their system. Pours a nice full golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is a lot of tinny hoppness, and just some mild malts, not a whole lot. Flavour is a touch better, leaning a lot more towards some nice sweet pale malts, with only a slight hint of hop dryness around the edges, and maybe a tad too much carbonation. Not nearly enough hop character to be a real Pils. As it warms this weird fake creamy sweetness get more prominent, which is sort of weird. Decent enough, though I doubt I’ll buy it again. Even after a long day this hasn’t really impressed me much, and is a let down for something that should have appealed to me.

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 (5218) - 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 (2270) - 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.

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.
