Crockett (1005) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2004
Light gold and clear. Pillowy white head. Grassy clean, lightly hopped floral aroma. Flat mouthfeel. Sweet and corny. Some caramel and simple strawberry notes. Worth a re-rate.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2004
Sample- 500 ML can. Pours an off gold body that resembles a malt liquor more than an actual lager. Head is enormous, and takes quite a while to settle down. Aroma is sweet, and slightly corny, with a hint of can. Taste is suprisingly sweet and not really offensive, but the aftertaste is sort of bitterish. Drinkable.

Damage (77) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2004
My first Polish beer! Pours a nice, golden colour with a soapy head that dissipates fairly quickly; floral aroma with a sweet, doughy malt flavour that lingers in the aftertaste; a good, if slightly odd-tasting beer. (500ml can)

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2004
Notes of apple in the aroma. Very thin and watery. Metallic and chemical notes.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2004
An orange beer with a small very fast disappearing head. The aroma is sweet malty. The flavor is sweet malty and hoppy with a slightly bitter end. An OK pilsener.

eraserhd10 (226) - new haven, Connecticut, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Came in a "Tall Boy" can. Aroma is a typical maltiness. Head is creamy and sweet, though brief. Color is a sandy-yellowish-gold. Taste is decent, but unspectacular. Very SWEET. Hints of honey and caramel. Once again, it is a Polish brew that leaves me wanting more! However, it does go down easy with a sweet and slightly salty palate. Sweetness lingers.

Brian (145) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2003
Dull and lifeless. Little color, small head, lagerish taste all add up to dull.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2003
Golden color with a fluffy meringue looking head. Light grain aroma. Dry light toffee flavor with a dry floral finish. Plain stuff.

deep golden, white head. mild hop aroma. bit of a cracker-ish malt flavour and dry hoppiness.

PorterPounder (5345) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2003
500 ml can. Pleasantly surprised to say the least when compared to other Polish beers I have had. Creamy white, quickly dissipating head. Thin lacing. Nice dark golden to light copper appearance. Malty, wort-like aroma with some subtle honey notes to it. Same maltiness carries over to the flavor with an ever so sweet aftertaste. Good, thick mouthfeel - goes down extremely well. Good representation of the Vienna style.
