From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue I:
Part of the "European Sampler" from SABMiller. They must see a rise in Eastern European beers' popularity in the US by adding this to the pack.
As with just about every mass produced lager, the clarity is perfect with a bright golden yellow color. Solid head retention as two fingers of foam stay in formation for a good while. Smells of lemony hop, wet animal feed grain and mild biscuit. Crisp moderate to light body is refreshing. Soft malt with an underlying graininess throughout. Hop bitterness comes in with an herbal and watery lemon zest flavor and balances the grain for the most part. Rough husk in a thinning maltiness hits middle to end with a dry finish.
Worth a try only if you are wanting to say you have tried a beer from Poland. Other than that, it's like pretty much every other Euro Lager out there: mass produced, processed, industrial and middle of the road.

probably underrated as the imports go. yeah its a classic yellow beer, best consumed as a classy alternative to a natty ice during the college years, but serviceable in other contexts, especially a food one. blonde and fizzy, slightly skunked, but refreshing just the same. metallic and stale, but maybe still a little too good to throw it in a beer pong cup. its brightly carbonated and medium in body for a light lager. one of those imports you dont see too much anymore, but it probably better than most of whats out there, despite the weird flavors and old lager yeast. polish beer certainly can get a whole lot better than this, but in a party context, it works. a lot like a skunky becks or something, german more than anything, but nothing special obviously. im sure on tap where its made its a whole lot better...
