2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
pale yellow color with a quickly disappearing head. subtle aroma, so subtle, i can’t identify it. or perhaps non-existant. wheaty, grassy, grainy flavor that is somehow off-putting. something thick and sweet, like honey, seems to stick to the back of your tongue. not a drain pour, but i can’t recommend this.

This was an unknown quantity to me, until I came across it by chance. When I first tried it, I was pleasantly surprised! Very well balanced, with quite a kick.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
extremely clear pale yellow, head dissapears fast. Aroma is very faint, hard to discern any real aromas. some malt, but nothing real stand out. Some sweetness, roasty malts, kind of doughy maybe. Hops are present enough to keep it balanced. Finishes dry with a touch of sweetness and grain. not bad, but not good either.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 5.6%. The aroma starts off malty with hay notes, but soon turns sour and grainy. Clear yellow colour, sparkling. Small white head. The same goes for the flavour. It starts off OK with some malt and flavour, but gets a little grainy. Has more flavour than most macro lagers.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Gold color, light white head, no lacing. Nose of dusty cheap malts and a touch of rice cracker followed by some metallic light hops. The flavor is balanced, decent maltiness in the body, restrained hop bitterness but a full pilsner malt flavor in the mouthfeel. Clean finish. Decent lager, invest a little more in the malts and this would be solid.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I had this beer poured from the bottle in Krakow, Poland. The aroma was mostly grainy and corny hops, and not too potent. It had a clear golden color with an average-sized, foamy white head with moderate retention. The flavor was mostly bitter, not too much sweet or sour effects. It was slightly on the thin side, and mostly dry, with only moderate carbonation. A decent, but unexciting beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
33 cL bottle, thanks to Justyna for bringing me this. Pours clear and pale yellow with a white head. Light malty and grassy aroma. Mild malt base with a mild bitterness on top. Clearly deliberately vague to make it easy to drink amongst the younger audience. Ends mild bitter.
