Cantabrian (882) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 13, 2013
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.

jmagnus87 (2732) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark gold with almost no head. Aroma of corn, grains and cotton candy. Taste is light bitter with a hint of sweetness Corn and grains with a weird herbal/chemical taste. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and a long, chemical-tasting texture. Overall, meh. Would be a decent pale lager except for all the drain-o taste.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a pale golden beer with a malty and grassy flavour, caramel notes and a sweet fruity and vanilla finish.

Maakun (833) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2013
Clear gold with fluffy head. Malts, some grass. Not very sweet, medium bitter with a slight tart touch.Touch bitter aftertaste, with a slightly metallic touch that gets worse after a while. There’s more taste then regular pilsners, but that taste is not very good unfortunately.

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2013
500ml can: now available in the UK with English writting on the can, labelled as ’TATRA Beer’. This can was bought for me by my father from one of the many Polish shops in Boston, Lincolnshire: I drank it at his house on 10th Nov 2013. It looked the same as almost every other Pilsner/lager we all know and love: golden, clear and bright. The usual none staying snow white head that swiftly retreats into a wisp and collar was another feature I was expecting: I wasn’t disappointed either. Slight malt/grain aroma (gets my usual 3 for a non-smelling Pilsner/lager). Taste wise it was a refreshing blend of semi-flavours: mildly malty with an undercurrent of hop bitterness. Nothing to pontificate about and nothing to set it apart from the hundreds (or thousands) of similar lager based brews from around the world. Mr Average in every way.

Jamedra (564) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 28, 2013
Plechovka 500 ml. Aroma je příjemné sladové s nádechem kvasu. Pena je bílé barvy, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť má sladový střed s banánovým nádechem, finiš je jemně hořký s alkoholovým závojem. Vcelku se jedná o velmi dobře pitelný ležák s dobrou chutí a aroma.

prawlie (1186) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Can from a local convenience store into a pint glass. Clear, golden, lightly gassy with a slight bubbly head. Fair pilsner aroma, a touch of acidity. Bitter, hoppy and slightly dry, hop crispness. Not too bad, but not exciting. Actually tastes good for a beer of this style.

madquacker (1052) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2013
Small head, rough and agricultural with a highish ABV. Not as bad as many eastern european beers. Low carbonation and lots of big straw going on.

Bottle. Golden pour with very little white head. Smells of malt, slight hop and very slight sour. Tastes sweet with a sweet/sour aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
