2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle. Filtered yellow-orange, with a steady white head. Lots of fizzy CO2 bubbles. Smells quite nice and bohemian, lots of skunk. There is some buttery offness, but itís not so horrific, at least for 1.49 a bottle. Drinkable I suppose, the kind of beer some Polish douchebag who laughs at Americans who drink Budweiser would swear by. Hmm..I take that back, it gets progressively less drinkable as the sugar body comes out. Pretty bad. The Stawski name has been defiled.

Poured a medium golden color with a thin head that disappeared quickly. Light carbonation. Malt aroma with a crisp finish. Actually a pretty good pale lager.

First off I have no idea what to categorize this beer as. It claims it is an ale, but it has all characteristics of an EPL, Iím just gonna post it as an EPL, if Baltic Porters can be lagers or ales, then this one is certainly an EPL or an EPB (Euro Pale beer) at least.
500ml green bottle.
It pours your standard gold, the head is soapy and white and quickly recedes.
This is relatively new to the shelves and it is already skunked. Under that is simple honey-like grain.
The flavor is almost tasteless, a tiny bit of malt and hops is all that you get besides water.
It is watery and thin. This is an abomination no matter what it is.

Pale Yellow Color, Decent Medium Head, Little Lacing. Sweet Grain Aroma. Taste about the same. Grainy, Slightly Sweet, Lightly Bitter Finish. If this is 50 years worth of search, it means nothing less than desecration of Stawski Family Name. Drinkable. Mediocre. Pass It.

Lord knows if this is actually an ale or lager and lord also knows that Stawski is not big on responding to email. This tastes like a pale lager and says ale on the label and so Iím calling it a cream ale. The color is a nice golden. Head is great at first but wanes a bit quickly. Despite this being in a green bottle, the nose is non-skunky and actually has a decent grassy malt nose w/ some grain husk notes in the background. This is kind of sweet and maybe slightly oxidized but still well in the drinkable range. It is hoppy enough that it comes off as sort of a bad pilsener. Carbonation is at a good level, which helps cut a bit of the sweetness. The balance is decent but there are some mild off notes floating around which keeps me from scoring this above average.
