3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear and golden color. The two fingers of white head have medium retention.
There is a nice malty aroma, which isn’t too strong nor too weak.
The taste is expected: sweet at the beginning, followed by a pleasant bitterness all teh way to the finish.
Easy to drink and refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nose - mostly malty, but with slight traces of polish hops. Clear golden with medium head that lasts about 5-10 minutes, then drops to none. Taste - medium malty body with some honey/flowers and cereal, pretty decent but weak bitterness. Mostly polish hops - short, sprucy, herbal finish.
Pretty decent boring lager, definitely better than these brewed with unmalted ingredients (high-fructose corn syrup, etc.)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 500 ml can into a lager glass.
Appearance - Clear straw yellow with thin fizzy white head.
Aroma - Cereal, light sweet malts.
Taste - Sweet malts along with honey and cereal notes are balanced by metallic bitterness, which persists into the aftertaste. An off putting skunkyness is also present.
Mouthfeel - Light bodied, dry finish. Unfortunately, as the beer warms, a lingering astringency develops on the pallet.
Overall - A solid malty lager, though the poor aftertaste doesn’t bode well for a revisit.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 500 ml. From SAQ. Pours crystal clear blond with thick white head, fully diminishing. Well, it’s a Pale Lager, and althhough it fairs relatively well compared too many others, it still is a PL. So not much to expect here, but not much too complain neither. Refreshing.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Color is pale golden, almost no head. Weak aroma of malt & hops. Nice hoppy bitterness, malts, grain, hint of caramel. Lively carbonation. Overall a fair lager but nothing special.

At a tasting, thanks kerenmk, small stable bubbley head, clear yellow colour, light malty cardboard aroma, sweet alcoholic flavour. Barley drinkable and not really good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. A disappointing lager as Polish lagers go. Refreshing beer but nothing out of the ordinary.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks kerenmk. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is grainy with a bit of bread and faint grassy hints. Sweetish and somewhat grainy flavor with light maltiness and a slightly bitter finish. Rather light-bodied.
