I've had many beers across the world, but this one is by far the best. There's no beer in America that can even compare or come close. Strong alcohol content and a sweet taste. Enjoyed this beverage at many establishments in Legnica Poland. Does anyone know where I can order this from in the U.S.?

500 ml can, bought in a pilish shop in Arnhem, along with others, so I guess it's ticking polish beers week. Poured into a Guinness pint glass. ABV 7%
Nice colour, deep golden yellow, with a big, soapy, white head. Average retention and very little activity in the glass.
Disappointing aroma. Some malts and a prominent feet smell, and not even your own feet which you don't mind that much or you maybe find appealing, but the feet or someone else who just came in the room and took his wet socks off. You get it.
Taste is better, but not anything special. Just lots and lots of malts, more like a wort taste. At least the alcohol is only slighty traceable, so you can drink it quite fast. It does leave a light bitterness behind, to be honest.
Thin on the body and light to medium carbonation. Some dryness on the palate.
Overall, after the initial bad smell, this is not that bad for what it offers. I am now already down to half the glass, drinking it rather quickly and I already find it better than when I opened the can. Either it gets better once it warms up, which I doubt, or the 7% ABV has gotten me.

Purchased one can from a gas station in Poland.

.5L Can served in a glass mug.

A- Clear Light Gold; not much head and dissipated relatively quickly; no lacing

S- malt, some hops and floral notes.

T- Toasted malts, touch of sweetness and herbal notes with a strong hoppy bitter aftertaste.

M- mild body, medium carbonation.

D- suprisingly high in alcohol; not a bad beer, but not great.

I tried this beer on the local PINT tasting evening in October 2011. All the beer is blind tested.

A - A clear gold yellow beer. There isn't much foam, only a thin ring sticking to the glass.

S - A smell of apple and pear, some flowers and malts.

T - The beer is a bit sweet, the bitterness is almost not present.

M - Not bad, medium alcohol and body.

O - A nice flowery beer, a bit sweet and not to bitter.

Poured gold coloured from a 500ml can into two half pint glasses, lively dense white head which lasted fairly well. Aroma almost non existant, just a hint of malted sweetness and grassy.

The taste is more of malts with a hint of initial sweetness, though also a slight bitterness of the hops at the end - but neither giving much character or depth of flavours. The 7%alc level didn't strike me at all - would not have guessed it was 7% had I not known.

Difficult to make a judgement, cant say it has any bad points, but equally nothing to make it good. I would drink it again, but would not be high on my list of beers to have again. There are better beers of this style and from Poland.
Though good value at £1 a can from Polish stores in UK.

500ml Can poured into a pint glass

A - Nice amber-orange colour, which poured a large head. Kept it pretty well and eventually forms a thin ring

S - No real smell to note. Slightly sweet with a tiny hint of the alcohol

T - Pretty crisp taste, and the malts and the hops work pretty well together. There's a slight harshness in the back of the mouth, but it's nothing too major. Pleasing taste.

M - Pretty thin to be honest. You really don't feel like it is a 7.0% lager.

D - I could certainly drink 2 or 3 of these in one go. The carbonation didn't really have an impact on me. Certainly packs a punch in regards to its percentage.

A pleasant one compared to others in the genre. Would definetly drink it again, but I have other preferences in this bracket

I should say i am a novice at beer reviews.

Quite a pleasing colour, nice amber, slighlty darker than a lot of lagers. Fizzy head which disappears quickly, slight lacing, good carbonation as you would expect from most lagers.
This beer was fairly bland and slightly watery, no real aroma. I consider 7% abv quite strong but the beer hides this very well, i was expecting a drain cleaner for taste but it's a very drinkable lager just don't expect too much taste(hops/malt etc). Blandish macro, was a good price, would buy again.

500ml brown bottle poured into a JW Lees Original Golden Lager pint pot.

A. Amber-orange colour with a tall, bubbly, soft looking white head that remained on top of the beer so long any top fermenting beer would be proud of.

S. Malty, hoppy. A slight strawberryness and candy floss is noted. Once the beer has warmed up in the glass sufficiently the alcohol can also be detected on the nose, more so than in the taste.

T. There is a nice interplay between the malt and hops. Sadly there is nothing else to report.

M. Light and highly carbonated.

D. If, like myself you have an intolerence to excessively carbonated beers then this WILL be hard going, it's certainly not one to drink fast. It certainly did not taste or feel like a 7%ABV lager. A constant steady stream of tiny bubbles rise up with a regular appearance of larger bubbles swimming upwards.
This beer had been reduced to £1 as it was slightly over its BBE date, I bought the last bottle and this WILL be my last bottle of this beer. Debowe Mocne could be even 'gassier' than San Miguel and that is some statement from me as I thought nothing could be as bad as that which is why I have only given it 1 for drinkability.
