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.

Nice golden color,small white head that had a good hang time then faded slowly to leave a slight bit of lace behind.The aroma was light malt some graininess and a slight sweet side,also a bit of a lemony citrus thing going on as well.Light malty taste with some mild citrus in the middle and finishes up with some mild hop bitterness.Not bad,in fact i’m going to have to go against the grain on this one.

Pours pale golden w/ a modest head and lacing. Malty aromas are average. Medium nectar w/ good carbonation for a soft and gentle texture. A big malty backbone w/ a fairly simplistic flavor profile however I do detect a bit of vanilla. The finish is mildly bittered. No offensive nuances. A decent brew. This beer is underrated.

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". 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.

The beer has a nice pilsener appearance. The color is golden yellow. The beer is quite pale and very clear. The beer smells quite hoppy. Very nice smell for a pilsener, a very nice citrusy sweetness and bitterness. The smell is quite appealing. The taste is also very nice. The bitterness is nice and strong, but not to strong. Very refreshing and very tasteful. Especially for a pilsner. chriso (7583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2004
Mine was just called "Piast Beer" and although the label was different and the ABV was 5.3%, I’m assuming this is the UK export version of this beer. Honey gold colour. Low carbonation. Fresh peppery aroma. Malt and hop are quite well balanced in the flavour. Crisp mouthfeel, starting sweetish, but becoming dryer towards the finish. There is a light bitterness and metallic edge in the aftertaste. I thought this was a quite respectable European lager. 500ml bottle. BBE 8 March 2005.

Thanks, Chis_o, I have assumed the same. Polish lagers are not really that bad, ha says me who has tried about 3 of them. Bought this at an Indian run general store that also has a great line in cheap English porno and sex guides. This has a good Euro style with a clean and crisp flavour and fine light hoppy/malt balance. Good value for the price, in an English context at least.

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. RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2005
Flatish looking lager with a fruity and chemically dry aroma ,and a slightly dry and chemically bitter flavour. Overall an OK continental lager.
