UPDATED: NOV 1, 2005 Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head. Sweet and malty, some fruitiness. Full bodied. Easy going... not very complex. Nice dry finish.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Medium-gold with a faint hint of brown. The aroma is surprisingly metallic for a bottled beer. A nice, rich palate unfolds to a heavy alcohol sensation and a banana aftertaste. Not bad, but the bizarre aroma comes close to ruining everything.

a boring lager, a bit unbalanced, sugary. chris_o describes doughy malt and that is spot on, not very pleasant for a lager but ok in the very hot poland

500ml can from a local convenience store. Very deep gold colour, tensing toward orange. Limited aroma. Maybe some doughy malt and a touch of grassy hop. Sweetish on the palate but there are some discernible hops in there too. A bit of fruit, possibly apples. The finish is noticeably bitter. Ends much dryer than it starts. Not exactly brilliant but, for a pale lager, a masterpiece. An extra point for the overall element for surprising me.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2006 Head goes off completely. Taste is rather light, sweet in the beginning,with a very slight bitter ending. Nothing to rave about, used to be worse though.
