500ml bottle. This beer was retired but now it is being brewed again by Okocim.
It looks like other Polish pale lagers, with a slightly orange tinged deep gold and a white head. This one dissipated pretty quickly but leaves some lacing.
The smell is standard Polish pale fair. There seems to be a heightened maltiness but overall it is pretty standard.
The taste is a bit tangier than most of this style. It has a nice roasted malt character and some more malt sweetness on top of that. The hops aren’t there too much, just a slight bitterness but overall this one works pretty well.
The mouthfeel is more or less standard though this one is more drinkable in my book.
Overall a slightly above average Polish lager.

16.9 oz. bottle. Poured a golden color w/ a light white head. Malty and a tad metallic. Goes down easy. Light bodied. Nothing noteworthy about it. italianjohn (3133) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Sweet aroma golden color little bit of head that stays slightly sweet taste not a heavy beer .... its an ok brew nothing spectacular 30 bucks for a case of 20 500ml bottles typical for imported brew .... for a pale lager there are better choices but its not offensive its easy drinking average bhensonb (15188) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Bottle from Total Wine in Roseville, CA. Clear golden color with a white head that left promptly. Aromas of grain and spicey hop. Medium body with mild, frothy carbonation. Flavor is nice. Grain and Noble type hop. Fairly crisp and clean. One of the better East Euro lagers I’ve tried.

500 ml bottle. Pours a light golden in color with a large foamy head. The aroma is a bit grassy with somewhat of a sweet honey note. The beer has a a thin, effervesent body, a bit malty in flavor with an evident alcohol kick. The finish is somewhat clean. bsm80 (144) - Massapequa Park, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Light orange pour with poor lacing and a thin head. More on the malty side, didn’t get too much bitterness, well balanced, pretty good for a "pale" lager. rocbyter (2123) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Light caramel malt aroma. Clear golden color with a small white head. Lightly sweet in the beginning with a mild grainy finish. DarkElf (3062) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 12, 2008
23-May-08 (500-ml bottle: Purchased 12-May-08 for $2.29 at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) Like other lagers from Poland, this one is not very enjoyable. Aromas of paper, hay, honey and sweet bread lead the way. On the palate, the beer is less sweet than expected, but paper, rice and grainy malts echo the nose. Light in body, medium in carbonation, and low in drinkability due to stale, lingering flavors making me want to brush my teeth and freshen my mouth. A tall, white head that sits on top of the clear, golden-yellow body builds to over an inch before gradually settling to a filmy layer. No lacing. I’ve had worse pale lagers from the Baltic region, but I’ll need something considerably better to make we want to drink one for enjoyment. Magic24 (60) - WROCŁAW, POLAND - MAR 28, 2008
Ludzie z miasta piją piasta :) A na serio to powyżej przeciętnej ale szału nie ma. Jak to jest że jeden browar robi super piwo i czasami też "syf".
