Polski Szlachetny Smak - decent for a strong pilsener, although my can had a few impurities.
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2005 Mine was just called "Okocim Beer" and was 5.5%, but it’s definitely the same beer. Relatively deep, burnished gold colour. Noticeably malty aroma. Dry malt and a fair ration of hoppy bitterness in the flavour. No great depth there. Long dry finish. Clean mouthfeel, maybe a little watery. Slight metallic tang. A reasonable East European mass market pilsner. No great excitement, but decent enough. 500ml bottle.

Got a friend to get some beers from Polen, so I was a bit disapointed to find out that it was a Carlsberg. But the taste surprised me. It has a nice colour, but lacks the head. A good taste, and overall a nice surprice. beastdog75 (364) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Now known as Okocim Premium. Pours a nice golden color. Crisp, clean lightly malty and sweet aroma. Clean tasting beer, only some hints of corn. Citric/grassy hop quality. I thought this was on par with a Czech pils. Pleasantly surprising. BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - NOV 20, 2004
Clear golden appearance, moderate head formation. Malty, fruity aroma, mild woody notes. Pretty clean on the palate, sweetish, with a light hoppy spice. Pleasant but uneventful.

I had to verify with the bartender that this was indeed a pilsener. This poured a clear yellow color with little carbonation and a thin white head. Odd for a pils. It was smooth, almost watery and fairly sweet. Also odd for a pils. Clean finish. Odd. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Burnt Beer Night: Pale Yellow... At This Point, Hard to Distinguish Between All the Bad Brews.. Some Hops and Grains..but Nothing Like I’ve Had Before...and Not in a Good Way. badgerben (5123) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2004
Burnt Beer Night: Ugh... how much bad beer can one handle in a given night? Pale yellow color, short lasting head. Smells like funky grains, tastes like funkier grain with an attempt at calming it down with some hops. Blah. johndoughty (5403) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2004
Imported into Britain simply as Okocim this is a rather ununspiring and tasreless pils.Very flat upon pouring with a slight trace of hops but otherwise
quite bland. Nolo (17) - California, USA - AUG 5, 2004
Mild and medicine-like taste. Bland and watery lager. Metallic kick to it. Not a very enjoyable Polish beer. Only had two sips and could not drink it anymore. A disappointment.
Sampled in Cracow.
