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

Tmoney99 (13070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2008
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 (5381) - 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.

Courtesy of Fonefan. It’s golden with a white head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, light fruit and sweetness. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of malt, caramel, fruit and slightly dry citrus in the finish.

I bought this 500ml can at the LCBO in Hawkesbury, Ont., the label (can) says 5,5% alc/vol. A: suprisingly dark for a pils, golden almost copper, no head wharsoever. S: this beer smells fresh, some malt, no hops T: classic industrial pilsner taste, round, almost sweet, some malt, M: medium-bodied, missing the cleaniness D: I won’t this one again, much better pale lager are on the marketfor the same price (2,05$).

TheJester (2396) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2008
500 mL can. Orange-yellow with a short-lived white head. Mild malty-grassy aroma. Mild, sweet flavour, with not enough body to hide the hint of alcohol at the end. No hops to speak of. Thin body. Don’t see how they can call this a pilsner. No need to return to this one.

can: Well, I first thought this was called Tantra, which might explain the foul yeasty smell (sorry, but I hate this beer). It comes in this golden can like a shining lighthouse, and a healthy, rugged mountain dude on the front . . . but then it sucks. No lacing, cheap grainy flavour. If this were a sweater, you could feel the fabric disintegrating as you wear it. You could literally drink a 6 pack of cans in minutes when ice cold as there is nothing to it. Next!
