Can from the LCBO. Rich golden colour with a large white head that disappears frightening quickly. Aroma is sweet and grainy, faint herbal hop notes. Medium bodied, crisp off the top but a bit sticky in the finish. Standard mainstream Eurolager flavour, mild and decently balanced, with perhaps a touch more grassy hops in the finish than some. Did a good job washing down a plate of pierogi and sausage.

half liter can Pours a honey gold with a decent cap the reduces to a surface lace and laces the glass well. Light boiled grains and some floral nose to this very faint. Adequately malty, decent zytek hop balance dry finish...a very unpretentious 2 dimensional Polish Pilsner Decent but not outstanding

Bottle. Poured Clear golden in color with a pute white, rapidly fading head. The aroma is a bit musky, but with a slight malty sweetness. The flavor is a bit on the hoppy side and a little tin. Ehhhh.

Strangebrewer (1134) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2008
From 500ml can 5.5%. Poured clear gold with small bubbly head. Grassy aroma. Medium alcoholic feeling on the tongue. Split malt to hop ratio. Lingering metallic finish. Nothing special.

Fairly decent lager from Poland. Pours a nice gold with a grainy hoppy aroma. Fairly dry taste. Not bad. Nothing special though.

Bottle from World of Beer, Clearwater, FL. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate grass and grain aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. My expectations where not met.

The aroma is very true to type with grainy malt and grassy almost herbal hops. The appearance is pale gold with an average head. The taste is also true to type and matches the aroma almost exactly. The aftertaste is clean. The palate is thin but OK for the style. Overall it’s a pretty average beer but not "Beer With Character."

JPDIPSO (5519) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Golden color with a somewhat wispy off white head. Eye opening aromas in that I was expecting the typical Euro lager scent with industrial malt and some alcohol. Instead, I am greeted by mild honey and pale malt mixed with pleasant sweet floral aromas. Great aromas... no, but certainly a better scent than many polish lager. Very heavy, nearly cloying feel. Pale malt and a sweet biscuit flavor in the front. Some floral hops in the middle. A bit of alcohol in the in the finish and linger. A mild citric bite in the linger as well. A fall day kind of brew.

according to the label, this is "truly polish" and a "beer with character". clear gold color, slight white head, some lacing. nose of grain and corn and hops. flavor is grainy, with the sweetness of the corn being nicely offset by the bitterness of the hops. the mouth feel is a bit too fizzy, and the finish is dry. i enjoyed the beer, but a touch to fizzy to be a truly good beer. my label describes this as a 6% abv variety. from a single bottle purchased at ’binny’s beverage depot’ in orland park.

Can. Medium-gold body; head quickly morphs from a soapy foam to absolutely nothing. Grainy nose accented by an unpleasant cleaning fluid undertone. Nice palate features good warmth and slightly gritty texture. Fairly rich flavour includes grain, wood, hops and carrot with a plush malt finish. A touch of bitterness would have rounded things out better but okay as is.
