Skinnyviking (7905) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2008
Can. Medium hight fluffy but quickly disappearing white head. Clear yellow body. Sweet and weak flowery aroma. Very watery flavor with a minimum of hops flavor and no other flavors to compensate, ok maybe a bit of honey. Low carbonation, short aftertaste. Waste of time.

beerguy101 (5338) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 31, 2007
This premium lager pours a deep copper color from a 50cl bottle. Large sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel, sweet with some floral hops. Medium bodied Premium Lager. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. There is a touch of corn and cereal, but not much. The hops are mild but slightly earthy and floral. The carbonation is a little lacking. There is a slightly strange caramel taste here as well, but it’s not bad. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty and sweet.

berkshirejohn (5223) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2007
50cl can.Clear golden colour with no head, looking rather like a cider; some grassy hops on the aroma; very sweet and malty; and a dry hoppy finish. Pleasant enough.

TrefwoordPunk (830) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2007 Can 50 cl. This beer is very malty, but also sweet with caramel being most prominent. Nice hoppy finish. Not bad, but nothing to write home about either

A commercial polish beer. Golden color under the little white head. In the taste are some malty flavour , but the aroma is uninspired.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2007
Bottled in an ’Irish pub’ in Krakow. Fruity malt booziness on the snout. Dead and headless. Grainy malt, paper, too much alcohol. Sweetly cereally afters. Unlovely, inoffensively malty fizz.

beastdog75 (363) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Pretty good Polish beer. Was expecting it to taste like your standard Euro-lager, but had a nice sweet malty taste, copper color and like citric/herbal hoppiness to it.

Canned. Thanks to larsniclas. Golden color, white head. Malty aroma with some spicy notes. Malty, grainy flavor. A touch of alcohol and with a rather weak finish.

larsga (6771) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2007
Small white head. Yellow body with carbonation. Sweetish papery malty aroma with hoppy notes. Dry malty taste with notes of apple and chalk. Bland and neutral. Dry chalky aftertaste. Boring, but no obvious flaws. (0.5l bottle, Middle Earth Pub, Krakow.)
