Piast Ksiaz 5.5% 1.7
Bottle given to me by a friend for educational purposes. Golden yellow with a short-lived white head. Light sweetish maize aroma with some grassy hops. The taste is similar, the immediate impression was alright but after a few sips both the malt and hop flavours turn out to be somewhat synthetic and unnatural and drinking the beer becomes a chore rather quickly.

Piast Porter 2.9
Very sweet smell and taste. This is today a rarity. This bottle was from -97. It tastes much like port wine. No head on this black beer. Malty, no chocolate but perhaps some coffee. Not my favourite style, too sweet.

Slodowo alkoholowe piwo, zbyt mocnawe. Alkohol dominuje wszedzie. Pozostawia swoj smak na dlugo po przelknieciu. Pelny smak i tresciwy. Praktycznie zero nut chmielowych. Piwo to wypite szybko to czkawka albo zgaga gotowa.

Draught. Aroma of nothing really. Clear golden colour with a short lasting white head. Very dry with a hint if bitter but not much else.

Piast Classic 2
(bottle - 500 ml) Mildly hazy yellow pour with a thin and fizzy white head that fades quickly. Aroma is kind of sweet with a grainy smell under the sweetness. Some stale hops perhaps. Taste has a fair amount of sweetness in it at the beginning with a malty middle and a dry and bitter hop finish. Kind of grainy and grassy at the end. Watery but surprisingly refreshing.

Bottle. Light malty aroma. Golden yellow color with small head. Light tasting - mild malt and subtle hops. Moderate body - gets extra points for not having the typical polish acidity.

Piast Classic 2
Not a very pleasant brew, tasted like a "sub-premium" American brand. I would best describe this brew as "soapy" in the aroma and flavor. Grainy, husky, slightly skunky, with grassy bitterness in finish.

Piast Classic 1.9
Another Eastern Euro bottle of beer that I knew nothing about before consuming. the label gives me assumption this was once the "beer of Polish kings". Further study of the label tells me beer is brewed by Carlsberg/Okocim. After popping the cap I’m greeted with a wet rag aroma. Piast pours a yellow dilluted color with some bubbling into the glass. Flavor is creamy, chalky East Euro swill with a corn alcohol aftertaste. Is this what young Polish drinkers prefer in a pilsner? This beer reminded me of Coors Henry Joseph’s, a beer of my youth.

Decent beer. Smooth and not the bad bitterness of a lot of pilseners. Sweet like a malt liquor. Also during my "buy cheap things that come in individual bottles" trip to the liquor store.

Piast Classic 1.4
Thankfully, I bought only one bottle of this to sample. It pours a pale yellow with a thin head. Smells kind of skunky. Tastes watery with chemical after tones. Are you sure this isn’t one of Miller’s malt liquors?

This is some straight swill. Serve ice cold and try not to taste it too much. Kinda golden yellow, OK head--not bad so far. Too sweet, grainy and vegitative--bad, bad, bad.

Clear golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Grainy nose and first sip but very watery aftertaste. Slightly grassy at the tail end.

Skunky rubber. Clear yellow. Thin. Absolutely no taste, which I guess might not be a bad thing.

Piast Classic 2.9
This was fairly cheap and I picked it as part of my "buy cheap things that come in individual bottles" trip to the liquor store. Not bad overall, a couple of these would be good for just hanging around.

Piast Ksiaz 5.5% 1.7
A yellow beer with a bubbly white head. The aroma is sour malty - from brewing cereal, I presume. The flavor is also sour malty. This is a really boring lager.

Golden color with a white head. The taste is water with an earthy note. It has slight hops in the finish.

Piast Classic 2.9
Sparkling clear, light golden lager. Huge, frothy, white head. Spotty lacing. The nose is lightly malty and floral. Subtle butterscotch notes. The flavor is decently balanced and very mild. Malt flavors. Nice, mellow hop addition, but the malt wins out... a touch on the sweet side. Light-bodied and thin. Watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, lightly sweet finish.

I don't know who's the most stubborn: me who drinks it or the breweries that brew this stinking alcoholfilled mixture. It's bad!!

Piast Porter 3.8
Bottled. The label stated best before 1996... Dark ruby. caraway and coffee aroma. Malty, rhum like in that it is mature, sweet and burning. Thick mouthfeel. Some salty licorice in the finish.

Golden. Sour maize aroma. Bubbly white head. Not as bad taste as the flavor. But not as good as a lager ought to be...

Piast Classic 2.7
One step better in my tour of just one Polish deli. Not bad, not bad. Another fresh one and I'm impressed by this fact alone. Reminds me somewhat of being in Bavaria where even the lamest of beers beat BMC hands tied. Medium body with just enough malt to give good feel, but not a whole lot more. Serve this at ball games and see a smile on my face. Gimme a pierogie (sp?) and the smile will broaden.

A golden pilsner with lots of Lublins, and a caramelly, slightly bready maltiness and dry finish.

Nice look with a very ’’gristy’’ aroma. Chunky malt flavor, unfortunately with no bittering to balance it.

Re rate One notch below Okocim Strong. Similar qualities just the aftertaste is not as good as it could be still quiet drinkable for over 8 %.

Soya thick, quite sweet. Drink it slowly!

Piast Classic 2.3
Very crisp but not very inspiring. Not as light as I first expected. Decent head out of the bottle. Worth a try, but I personally wouldn’t go back.

Piast Classic 2.6
Light clear gold in color, frothy white head and decent lace. Nose is malt, the front lightly sweet, the top is light, the finish is crisp, clean, dry, acidic, and a decent drinkable beer, but way to "Light" for me as a Belgium Strong Ale-O-Phile.

Piast Classic 3.6
Good, crisp beer. Less sweet than Zywiec. If you can find it, give it a try.

Very heavy, almost knocked me over. Also very sweet and a very distinctive and sticky salmiak taste.
