1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This is a pale rather watery lager. The aroma is astringent. Ok head, but it dissipates fast. The flavour is too watery, I prefer more robust beers. Nice hoppiness, but rather short on malt. The palate is a touch too metallic to my taste. Not a beer I will buy again.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2009 Bottle from supermarket in Krakow. Golden color, small white head. Rather malty and sweet aroma. Flavour is also sweet and malty with some notes of alcohol and a light bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Rather boring brew, and I think the alcohol is a bit too noticable.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Best before 12.01.07, or so says the label. This poured a very nice clear and bright medium gold colour, with a proper white head. Nice lacing here, as the head stayed around for an unusually long time. The aroma was subtle, perhaps more grass than hops, but pleasing all the same. Taste was clean and crisp, not at all suggestive of a "strong". Motuhfeel and aftertaste were also very acceptable.

50cl bottle from a Polish grocery store in Slough. Dark straw with a rapidly fading white head; softly carbonated with large bubbles; dusty hop aroma; full-bodied Bavarian hop and caramel grain flavours with a light hop finish and a soft texture. Not bad.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Boring as going to church.
Poured out small white head that faded to a ring. Dark gold colour. The aroma is near no-existant...what exists is mild and over sweet....even when this was cold there wasn’t much aside from an unappealing weak gausuihhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhj ,ahahaha my cat was sitting on the keyboard. I was saying it had a weak gasoline quality. Still might although even more muted now. Taste is lacking but not offensive aside form a tough of alcohol and mild bitterness that overtakes any flavour that may have existed. This is a waste of money...good thing I didn’t pay for it. Slight chemical too. (added at the end of the glass - I’ve noticed the malts...not bad but too late) Mouthfeel is soft and smooth until the annoying ick bitterness...good thing that is is very mellow as well. Sure I could drink tons of this but why would one want to? This is a nothing beer. Thanks Brad, you dink.
