(Purchased at Babusha’s Russian Deli, in Walnut Creek, CA) Didn’t make much of a noise when the cap was popped, but it did create a large head. Amber body. Aroma actually reminds me of warmed ketchup (strange I know, but that’s what came to mind). Flavors clearly on the side of malt. Not really much hop character really obvious there. Not a bad beer at all considering its one of the Eastern European pilsners, which are usually very watery and taste all the same. The flavor leads me to believe it would hold its own against a really heavy curry.

Bottle brown,500 ml
Appearance: head is weak and quickly disappearing, body is dark yellowish to bright orange, quite clean, carbonation is weak, quite quickly going off, aroma is weaker than Zywiec lager beer, citrusy notes, slightly of lemon and honey, hops in aroma almost non existant. Flavour: at first sip you notice that the beer is drinkable, not much carbonation, very low accidity, no bitterness, very low hops in content, definetely towards malty sweetness, bisquity but in weacker way than Zywiec lager and not much dry. The malted barley is in its hints seeming even similar to Czech pilseners but the beer is not such aromatic and prominent in flavour, after 4 minutes hed disappear wholly. You can feel alcohol at finish.

Fajna reklama leciała :). Piwo można kupić na metry :) Generalnie delikatniejsze piwo i ciut "słodkie" jeśli piwo może być słodkie. Dla mnie ok.

Head - Lacing - none. Head - Longevity is none. Body - Clear sparkling Density - thin Bottle conditioned - no. Body - medium Amber Orange Flavor : 6 Initial flavor - not a bad flavor, and it grows on you. Once you get over the alcohol and sweet cloy, you can settle into an above average beer. Sweet and a bit Sour while very Salty Finish - Flavor Sweet and a bit Acetic. Finish - Duration is long. Palate : 2 Body - Light to medium Texture - Oily and finishes Creamy. Carbonation - Lively Finish - Feel is Chalky Alcoholic - moderate to heavy Overall Score: 11 Comments: Not a bad beer, but a bit too smooth for me. A long aftertaste, and darkens in flavor over time, which is redeeming, but not by much. I liked: The overall flavor. The color was nice. The aftertaste is very enjoyable. I did not like: The cloying sweetness, the complete lack of head, and the simplicity of the components.

Can. Pours a golden, clear body with a white head. Hay, grain, malty sweetness and a whiff of canned pears in the aroma. Not foul, just boring. The flavor on the other hand, isn’t just good, there’s a alcohol touch to it that is rather uncomfortable, as well as grain and grass. Some fruityness and bitterness too. Thin in the mouth, and lightly fruity and bitter finish. Not a beer you would like to repeat. (080312)
