Picked this up a few weeks back at Stew Leonard's in Clifton in the closeout" bin, having never had this before. I'm not a fan of this style but for some reason, I didn't mind this beer that much. It was enjoyable, easy to drink, and more filling than I anticipated and it even surprised me that this was distributed by SABMiller. Just goes to show that I still have a lot to learn!
The appearance of this beer was what I expected it to be - clear, golden, a good amount of carbonation, and a nice head that settled fairly quickly. There was a fair amount of lacing left as I worked my way through this, with a few thin rings being visible in the middle of my pint glass. Not much of an aroma to this but the taste was much better than I anticipated. No indicating of sourness, filler, or "skunk". Not a dry mouthfeel to this as the consistency was quite wet while still being grainy. Lots of bread here with a hint of grain, but this wasn't too filling enough to be a stylistic misnomer. Maybe, there was even a hint of wheat?
The alcohol was where I expected it to be and there wasn't a point where I could feel it in the taste. This was much better than other examples of the style that I've had and should I find it again, I''d give it another go. This will be on my list of "guilty pleasure" beers, like Pabst Blue Ribbon and Miller High Life and sometimes, it's good to have something light that's also refreshing and enjoyable. For me, this certainly fit that bill.

Golden Hue with a white foamy head. Not an overly aromatic beer, very light, subtle smells of grains and grassy notes. Slightly bitter taste, with hints of corn and wheat. Finish is crisp, with little lingering. Poland's "favourite beer," for me just a tastier version of a coors or budweiser. Nothing special here.
