MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - DEC 21, 2008
650ml bottle from Poland: not unlike the last Polish beer I had. Poured golden yellow with a thick white head. Moderate hoppy aroma, slight pepper. More alcohol finish in the taste than the Warka. Mild grain and hops in the taste. Drinkable but that is about it.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2008
Picked up a bottle at the Binny-apostrophe-s in Orland Park, IL. The ABV is listed as 6.0 on my bottle, naysaying the 2008 claims of the commercial description. It has a sweet grainy aroma with a dash of grassy hops. The hops are too subdued in the flavor, allowing a corny sweetness to be added to the fray. Pretty drinkable.

GregClow (3157) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2008
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.

pootzboy (1690) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2008
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.
