Spicy and herbal Marynka hops and two row and caramel malt from the city of Gdansk create a balanced, amber ale. Originally brewed to celebrate the 1200th anniversary of the home of one of our favorite breweries from the Polish Beer Trip, this style commemorates both Polish brewing history and Harpoon tradition. - See more at: http://www.harpoonbrewery.com/beer/2832/100-Barrel-Series-48-Polskie-Mastne#sthash.XFLxQsof.dpuf

It's got the color of a brand new penny. The flavor is a little flabby in the mouth. Nothing outstanding in the taste, maybe slightly sour.

Poured a slightly hazy orange-reddish color with a medium sized white head. Very malty aroma with some corn. Slightly sweet aroma. Taste is also malty and crisp with a bit of cardboard. Some vegetables with more grains and dough. Some slight caramel flavors as well. Some slight hop flavors give a bit of balance. Overall it’s decent.

This came in a trade with BoostIPA. This pours amber and clear. Moderate carbonation floats up into a steady one finger beige head. Caramel malts lead the aroma but grass and yeast are also noted. Caramel is tasted first. Grass and interesting fruit. Dry bitterness becomes bread. The finish brings more fruit. It is sweeter and not citrus. This is an interesting beer and a fun one to try. Thanks Shawn.

jgb9348 (6101) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Crisp amber coloured body with a copper glow and a thinnish, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of caramel, light malt, a touch of nuts and only a small amount of earthy hops. Medium-bodied; Assertive malty flavour with caramel the strongest flavour, but some nuts are also around, along with grapes, yeast and a hint of pitted fruits. Aftertaste shows a mellow character, but the malt hits strong and hard, in a good way. Aside from the malt, only a touch of sweetness is around from caramel. Overall, a nice touch on a local and relatively simple style, but naturally not a great beer in terms of American brewing. Definitely worth trying if you like lighter styles or if you are Polish (as I am!) for some heritage tasting. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Foggy Bottom), DC on 19-February-2014 for US$5.99 sampled at home in Washington on 30-July-2014.

Pour out of bottle, thanks Aaron! Clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, hints of red fruit, cherry, touch of grain, hints of berry, slight spicy, yeasty notes. Taste is a mix of grass, cardboard, hints of red fruit, slight yeast, hints of grass, herbal notes, finishing bitter, dry. A bit old.

Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Thanks, Sean. Light amber colored pour with a white head. Nose is mostly toast and bread with a bit of apple esters. Some what metallic and grassy. Flavor is lightly sweet, despite being quite bready. Some toasted grains, grass, and light floral hops. Mild apple and yeast. Meh.

phaleslu (10015) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2014
22 oz. bottle sampled at RBSG’s grand tasting. Pours a clear orange with a small off-white head. Notes of nuts, sugar, straw, corn, caramel, and leaves. Light-bodied, with a nutty, leafy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Like the first polotmavy I tried, this didn’t leave much of an impression. Not bad, though.

Frank (4170) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2014
This is a light amber orange beer with a head of fine bubbles and a ton of lace. The nose is malty w/ a bit of pleasant, nutty oxidation. It has a medium bodied texture lightened somewhat by vigorous carbonation. This is a malt forward brew but still crisp. This is a nice, rather tasty lager beer.
