2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light golden in color, this pours a nicely beaded and respectably headed drink. The aroma is quite malty. The taste, sweet malt with a mild hop bite finish. There’s also a bit of a metallic touch to the finish as well.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden colored. Very malty and bready flavor, just like many of these Polish lagers. Also traditional sweet taste. Hops bite nicely in the end.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear gold colour, poor head retention. Smells like a typical Polish lager - steam, malt and a touch of metal. Starts slightly firmly malty and then there’s a solid bitterness accompanied by some rough alcohol, metal and soapiness. It’s kind of a disturbing finish. I like the label design though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light color. Well balanced hops aroma. Hoppy and refreshing taste with an aftertaste that is just what I like. My new favorite Polish beer.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden colour. Slightly spicy hop note mixed with bready malt (as per the Polish prototype). Palate is richer, but not for long, as it all fades into wateriness and thinness.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden with a big white head. Aromas are sweet water and not much else. Flavours are soapy grain and sweet water. Artifial tasting. Alcohol without the taste sums it up.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I would class this as a Dortmunder/Helles rather than a Pilsner - the accent is way more on the malt than the hops. In any event, this has fruity, eastern euopeanish malt flavour, but much cleaner than usual. Nice minty balancing hops. Pretty good, this.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Canned. Golden colour, rich but quickly vanishing head. Malt aroma. Sweet and soft, mellow mouthfeel, a bit fruity. Grassy bitterness. Simple.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yellow color with a smaller white head. Sweet pale, with herbal hops and a hint of alcohol. First impression was that this was just another polish lager, while it certainly has a polish bend, this one seems a bit cleaner. Sweet dough like malt and with a floral hops balance. Clean finish with a dry malt linger.
