2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale golden body with a thin head of white foam fed by forced carbonation. Slightly sulfurous hop aroma is typical of mass produced European lagers. Slightly sweet malt taste is pleasant and refreshing. Mouthfeel is thin but appropriate for the style. This defines the average of the entire spectrum of beers for me.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very light yellow beer but with good European pilsner-type white poofy, slowly dying head. A light malty aroma. This is smooth and starchy, and reminds me of a good continental beer garden ... very sweet malted beer with slight bitter tinge, but clean finish. This site is patently anti-lager; this is a decent pils in the northern German style ... definitely better than Heineken. I've had this in Poland pre-Ratebeer days, but don't remember if there's a difference in the import.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a golden yellow with a thin mold like creamy head. The initial sniff has scents of corn and sugar cane. Maybe some honey. Strong taste of corn and quite sweet. Corn syrup??? A little hoppy, almost bitter but not quite. The finisha little watery. The palate is pretty clean, maybe because of the watery taste??? Not too bad of a beer but kind of boring.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow color with no head at all. Eh, not much of an aroma. Some malt maybe? Kind of hard to decipher. Watered down taste. Nothing great about it except it's from Poland. Bought this 12 oz bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml/11.2oz bottle with a cute little "beer thermometer" on the back in the form of a white rectangle that has the beer's logo appear when the bottle gets below a certain temperature. Very cool; even moreso because the beer wouldn't be very good warm, methinks. A Polish classmate found out I wrote reviews and asked me what I though of this brand so I thought I'd give it a shot.
Pours a straw-yellow color with a decent white head with minimal lacing left behind.
The smell is a little metalic, almost skunked smelling. Other than that it's malty-sweet smelling.
Taste is pretty good; about typical for style. Actually it's very typical.
Mouthfeel is a bit more full than most and very creamy. Drinkabilty is nice; I wouldn't mind having a few more of these.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale gold with a short fizzy head. Hoppy grassy barnyard nose. Mildly bitter with some soft malty sweetness. Slight caramel and toasty cookie flavours. Has a spicey bite to it that comes out of nowhere. Crisp and Clean. Good.

Golden, thin foamy head. Pungent nose--malt and some Rolling Rock funk. Slightly sticky. Moderate carbonation. Slightly sweet. Moderately spicy. Half-decent but forgettable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sparkling clear, golden lager with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is of malt, lightly floral hops and a hint of honey. The flavor is fairly well-hopped, but a bit on the sweet side. Touch of honey and lemon. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Short, bitter-sweet finish.
