2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2004 Simple, clean, and refreshing... nothing exciting, but not too shabby. Can't really get to descriptive about these pilsner/light type beers... all pretty simular. Slight hop bite.

A very disappointing Polish beer, considering the exposure it has in Eastern Europe. There is no "bad batch" of this beer - it is just a substandard beer. "Very tough to drink" is about the best way to describe it. I was barely able to finish my second sip. The hops perfume found its way to my nose all right, and it didn't get the welcome mat.

I dont know why other dont think this but my tasting of this beer was not pleasurable. Did I get a bad batch or does it always taste much too sweet and too rich? I coudnt taste through this 'honey' to appreciate any other flavours in the beer. I think this beer was very tough to drink. The worst thing was i had 500ml of it to get through.

Aroma was nice slightly floral and very inviting. Poured a very clear yellow with a nice white fluffy head that lasted. Hop background flavour with an overall sweetness. Well carbonated and quite thin makes this a good session drink. Definately drinkable.

very light yellow, like cheap brass bells, toggles and lamp ornaments. head was as fluffy white as a new hotel towel. impressive is the perfume of hops that finds it's way to your nose without any coaxing. brassy again, but not cheap this time: saaz meets iceberg lettuce, almost green corn organic freshness combining cracker malts and pine needle hoppiness. served very chilly, it has a nice simultaneous bite of carbonation and moderate bitterness with a firm white-toast foundation.

Light gold colour. Grassy, slightly herbal (sage, thyme) notes. Clean, quick finish. Simple, occasionally satisfying.

Decent golden lager. Some decent hops and a little bit sweeter than expected. Pretty light. Overall it was pretty average.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden light color with a nice sized head (based on the rest of the impression) and lacing. Aroma is very lightly malty with adjunts. Flavor is well balanced with bitter hops and a malty sweet finish. The mouthfeel ends spicy but is not too impressionable. eh.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dirty yellow color, sporting no head or lace. Yeah, not a lot of nose on this one. Malt and hop aromas is about the only thing present. Very light flavors of sweet malts. Nothing else really. Pretty average.

Going from bar to bar in the "little Warsaw" section of Greenpoint, Brooklyn is always an adventure. Plenty of taverns. Cute polish girls. Seedy characters. And plenty of beer. This simple, light tasting lager is nothing special. Slight aroma of hops and spices. Very thin and unimpressive palate. Dry finish. Its refreshing and being that this was served to me freezer cold, I think I would enjoy this better on a hot summer's day while grilling up some kielbasa!
