Lubiere (11932) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2009
A golden lager with a thick dissipating white head. In aroma, a light corn adjunct. In mouth, a decent eurolager with light Gernan hops, crisp malt, light metallic notes. Not bad. LCBO 500 ml can, tasted Oct. 31 2009.

Benzai (11827) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2012
50cl can shared with Dutchdrebus and Joes. Clear golden color, small white head that disappears almost instantly. Smell and taste are both flat, lightly malts and slightly hayish with a slight bitter finish. Thin body, low to medium carbonation. Not bad in the sense that it has major flaws but just a boring weak pilsener.

bierkoning (11675) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2005
Can, bought in The Hague. Cologne flavor. Grainy with a fair deal of bitterness, but not from fresh hops, I’m afraid. It is some kind of bitter walnut and Brussel sprouts bitterness. Some bread dough shines through the bitterness in the aftertaste. Very mediocre.

crossovert (10313) - Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2012 500ml can. Best before 09-02-2010. Pours an orangey yellow with gold hues and a foamy white head that dissipates pretty quickly leaving not much lacing. It has a very earthy hop aroma, very spicy. The malt is there too though it is rather dull. It is another Polish pale lager that isn’t a true Euro pale lager. It is heartier but not exactly better. The malts are bready and pleasant. There is a slight bitterness, but not much. The hops have a slight lemon hint. It is full bodied for the style though it has a decent carbonation. It is the kind of stuff you drink when you want to have an easy drinker that packs a little extra abv. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 04-27-2010 21:55:15 having another an right now, it seems salty almost, the can is super fresh. Downgrade.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 26, 2007
Can. Golden with a big bubbly creamish fairly lasting white head. Fresh and sweet fruity bit spiced aroma. The flavour is fresh, sweet, fruity with some spicines and nice bitter hoppiness. Dry bitter finish. Pretty good tasting Polish pils with a tradycyjna receptura! And for what it cost it is a good beer for a good price.
