CQC (224) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2008
A sligth cedar & salt water stink, a nice earthy round, dough-sih flavour. Looks like a beer - a regualr fizzer witha reasonable golden vibe. again, a nice quick palete. A easy drinker. No hassles no hang-overs.

heavy (2663) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 17, 2008
16/08 0.5 l can from a gas station near Warszawa. Poured golden body with medium sized, fluffy industrial head. Interestingly, hoppy aroma, lemony and grassy and a bit dusty but malt is hidden here. Flavor has got it however, actually its more malty than hoppy, so flower and bread dominating over that weak lemon. Sweetish. Thin bodied so quite boring as most of beers Ive drink those days. Short finish, even just a hint of metallicity inside. Some alcohol felt at the very end, too. Another boring pale lager.

Can, 0.5l, 12, courtesy of heavy who brought it from Poland (thanks!)
Poured a golden body pierced by very lively carbonation and covered by a medium to big, quite thick white head that took its time to go away. The nose was slightly metallic but fresh. Dusty hop mostly with some underlying malt. The taste was an entirely different story however. Sweet and malty, crude, bready, with some light notes of alcohol. The hop was.. well... maybe was in the background.... giving mostly a light bite and maaaaaybe some weak acidity and something in the aftertaste. Too much alcohol for the body, making it taste a bit cheap. 12 and 6% just dont go together. and I dont like it much. Flawed, ruined a bit by that light alcohol presence and it reminds me somewhat of Karlovačko. Still, had far worse. Oh and how is this a Premium lager?

Rated: 15.07.2007
Bottle brown, 500 ml, extract of wort 12,1%
Appearance: Pours nice deep golden, bright colour, very nice, shining, like for pilsener, body is sparkling, carbonation of body is medium, it is average and medium bodied. Head is initially big, snowy white, intense, light, frothy, slowly diminishing, giving no lacing. Body is transparent, clear, well filtered, body colour is nice but somehow giving a little impression of the beer being wattery.
Aroma: You can feel yeast with a rust and pipe water, mineral nose, hoppy and a bit citrusy fresh,only when you plunge into a beer deeper you can catch the maltyness of it, generally apart from yeast, alcohol, other aromas of malted barley, hops and citrusses like, lemon are only in hints. Rather faint aroma all in all. The head is mostly diminishing but here is still a little crown on the rim.
Flavour: Refreshing, cooling, watery, sparkling, hoppy nose again, some hints of bitterness on palate and some of malty sweetness. Initially moderate sweet and light bitter. Flavuor is mineral, salty, you can feel light carbonation on palate. Body texture is wattery to oily or watered oily, citrusy, lemon, soapy (some effect of bigger yeast content than in other mainstream Polish Premium Lagers of that type. Honey sweetness, a hint of barley grains. Really mineral due to strong carbonation.
Palate: Alcohol warmth, finish is short, chalky, light alcoholic, accidic from carbonation on palate. You can feel warmth through your throat but on the other hand beer goes easily. Finish is dry, chalky and bitter from hops.

Stefano (1952) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2013 Clear gold colour, poor head retention. The aroma is quite malty but nothing special. The flavor is sweet malt with a mild hop bite finish. Theres also a bit of a metallic touch to the finish as well.

High alcohol content and reasonable drinkability means that this was oftentimes the beer of choice while I lived in Poland, drinkable if not special, it got the job done.
