Bottle, shared with MichaelBruch. Deep golden in colour with very low head and low to no carbonation. Nose of rich malt. Taste malt, gentle hops, strong alcohol and ripe fruits. There is some smokey hint what makes it really nice.

Prumerne a celkem nevyrazne pivo. Chut jemna, ale neprilis zajimava. Lahvac z varsavy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can at home in London. I picked up this treat at an offy in Angel. Pours clear, rich gold with a small, fleeting white foam head. Nose is sugary, lightly grainy malts. Medium to big sweet flavor with some bready malts, mild caramel, some rich cereal, lightly toasted sugar. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Fairly crisp on the finish with more doughy, bready malts, cereal, some straw and hay bitterness, barely any alcohol coming through - certainly not what I would expect from 7%. If you’re going to make a strong pale lager, this is how you do it, folks.

Tall can at Krakow hostel "beer festival." Bright brassy gold. Generally clean but grainy aromas. Tastes very strong, snd sweet, but at least is clean, and good for a macro strong lager.
