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

0,5l can. Clear golden color. Small white head, disappears quickly. Alcohol, malty, grainy aroma. Grainy, malty, alcohol in flavor. Nothing special.

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.

Strong alcohol in flavour, oily and slightly metalic, best opt for the jasne pelne instead

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Marketed as malt liquor by importer Amtec from Brooklyn. Does that really sound better than Imperial Pils? Aroma of metal, corn and cider. Clear and golden. Taste is a syrupy malt with an alcohol sting. Body seems dense but ultimately flat. Okay, so this really is malt liquor. This is unfortunate because it really only a few flavor notes off from being a good representative of the Polish strong lager tradition. Brought to you by Heineken sort of.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can 500ml. Golden, headless pour and a sweet, metallic, grainy aroma. Malty sweet flavour finished by a little alcholic sweetness again. Not too sweet tough.

Can, from an ethnic food store in Scunthorpe. Deep gold, thin but lasting white head and gentle condition. Sweet and malty in the nose with hints of strawberry jam, quite soft and muted in the mouth despite the strength, with some maltiness still apparent and a developing herbal bitterness, more sweetness in the finish with some alcohol finally becoming noticable and a lingering bitterness
