Drab Polish lager. Would love to try the porter but this is all we get in Australia: another dull Euro-lager to compete with our own macro crap. Poured a pale straw colour with a middling head. Light malty aroma of no special distinction. Some floral hops in the finish. Blah.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Poured a golden color lager with a large head with minimal retention. Aroma of crispy malt is quite enjoyable. Taste is constituted of crispy malt with some floral hops. Very refreshing beer but this bottle version may have not travelled that well overseas since there was a subtle skunkyness to be found at the end.

Some hop aroma but not as if it were an IPA where the aroma jumps out at you. Flavor didn’t have the hop bite I like in a hopy beer. Ok but might as well have a Bud.

A lovely taste of vanilla on the tip of your tongue.
Got us wrecked in Wetherspoons and we suffered the following morning...

Pale gold colour. Pleasant aroma with nice herbal notes. Simple but well-balanced flavour, with grassy, flowery hops in the finish. A decent mass-produced lager.

Bottle. Being Polish-American, it was time to taste Poland’s best seller. Poured a medium amber with average white head. Aroma and flavor was an average hop tone with a medium finish. Average brew. Will hunt out the Porter.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Poland’s best known beer? Well, at least outside Poland it is, I guess. Clear, golden with a very limited head. Most characteristic is the extremely soft mouthfeel, almost like velvet on your tongue... Maybe it’s because of the mountain springwater? All aside it’s basically just a strong lager with a rounded bitterness. Good one. 140203
