2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 Jan 06 - Light hop sweet aroma. Clear yellow-amber colour, low head and lacing. Sweet simple hop and light malt flavour. Tangy light hop bitterness, with a hoppy lingering finish. Overall - Just another lager but still drinkable.

My wife picked me up some of this on her trip to Poland. It was surprisingly good. Crisp golden colored pour, not too hoppy. Pretty damn good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Yellow, small frothy white head - lots of bubbles streaming up in the glass. Skunky hop aroma - not bad, but standard Euro lager stuff. Taste was surprisingly fresh light malt - very thin and bland, but quenching. Mild sweetness that comes off a little syrupy - this beer could use the carbonation the streaming bubbles suggest. Better than I expected, but I wouldn’t buy again.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2009 Bottled. Golden beer with a small, white head. Aroma is mostly hay and grains, with some maltyness. Rich malty flavor with some fruityness. Medium body and low on bitterness. Rating: 3-3-6-3-12-2.7. 051210
Bottle. It pours a clear, straw body under a decent white head. Some lacings occur. Grainy, slightly sickingly nose but not bad. Grass, pale malts, hay, fruit-syrup and a little bitterness in the flavor. Medium body. Short, fruity finish with low bitterness. Re-drinking this one, I can’t imagine what made me give a 6 for flavor last time. Drinkable, nothing more. 091122

Light golden color with longer lasting white head. Light malty aroma with some skunk. Slightly sweet malty taste with a bubbly bitter finish.
Hints at the presence of a body, but gets lost with the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 Bottled. Limitated but good duration head. Shining yellow color, little firm and slightly bubbly. Determined and alcoholic scent, nice malty presence. Unusual taste, elevated alcoholic perception. Overbearing and extended bitter, good fizz. Long and balanced end.
Thanks to Claudio for this beer.

Pour is a medium gold to go along with its medium sized white head. Nose is light hop, straw, and light fruit ’n malt. Flavor is mostly of grain, some yeast, mostly upgraded cheap beer. Goes down smooth, but is overall an above average poor beer.
