3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2009 12 oz. Bottle. Spotted in a billiard hall’s lighted beer cooler. Had a "Best by 2-10-06," but maybe that meant October 2, not Feb. 10. Pretty standard pale lager pour and head. A mostly decent smell, may have been a bit oxidized. But I found the taste to be surprisingly engaging. Some malts to notice, and bit of a grainy texture. But it has a rather aggressive hop profile that doesn’t normally survive in a bottled European import (thank you brown bottle!). A bit spicy, definitely noble hops at work here. I asked the bartender if she’s tried it, and was told "Oh, I don’t drink Polish beers." Too bad, this one’s the best thing she’s got in that bar.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Short white head on a golden yellow body. The general impression is "ordinary". The flavour is wanting, and it is a little watery. Not much to say about this one!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pitiful pale golden appearance with nary so much as a head at all. Aroma is a little grassy and taste is,...well I’m sure there is something there, sort of like a bitter grass and dry hop taste with a watery but ever so slightly sweet flavor. On one hand the palate is actually buttery and that was a nice suprise, on the other hand there is just no flavor here to warrant any respect.
