2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bit maltiness, intense grainy, corn, some grassy hops, unpleasantly low carbonation reveals low quality brew. Way too thin and watery, only surprise was well hidden ABV. Sweetish with some bitterness in finish.
Not disaster, thou.. no more pls

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Canned, 0.50l. Clear deep golden color with large frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of malt, maybe mild caramel, grassy hops and some citrus notes. Moderate sweet malty taste with fresh and sour grassy following, crisp and dry mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Light to medium body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. For the sake of higher alcohol volume, this beer tends to be bolder than ordinary pale lagers...

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Sweet malty beer with some clear traces of grassy hops. In this case being more on the watery side would suit the beer better.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, witha German label, as Tatra Bier. Actually, I didn’t think this was too bad at all. Certainly more of a Pilsener, it has a nice crisp aroma of Saaz, and also the flavour, with that grassy, metallic - very metallic - bite. Crisp and golden, it is refreshing and rather less sweet and more complex than most ordinary pale lagers I have had. I know Poland does great beers, but particularly for this one I was not expecting much.
