3/5  rDev -2%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Clear medium yellow color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white to off-white head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, toasted, sweet malt, sugar. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. Drinkable, but the alcohol lingers on the palate.

This beer is along the same lines as a Jever, and some other German Pilsners that are out there. This brew was decent to say the least. It had a big old head on it that kept me from finishing a good pour. The beer was clear yellow. Light refreshing mouthfeel. The flavors of some citrus come through at points. Kind of interesting.

Pours a golden urine colour with big fucking head, white and fluffy. Seriously, it's huge and sinking slowly, leaving mostly dull specks of lace. Very thin bead. Looks pretty standard and fizzy, good head though.

Nose is grainy and slightly sour. Fair amount of malt that smells like sour mash or spent grain with a hint of aloe vera and cut grass. Not much else, pretty plain and not very enticing

Taste is a bit insipid. Lots of sweet flavour which is kind of like refined sugar dissolved in water. Slight phenols, not very clean on the back but still remains sweet with an odd alcohol heat probably due to lack of flavour otherwise. Maybe a slight lucerne or straw character on the finish and slight acidity which combines with tingly fizz of the mouthfeel to give it a slight bite. Mostly thin overall.

Hopefully it will match the Polish food i'm having with this, because I certainly wouldn't drink this on its own. A matcher maybe, but a drinker no.

0.5L bottle, tasted with a plate of paprika chicken at Alchemy Polish Cafe in Surry Hills.

Frothy headed, thick from a big bubbled and heavily carbonated body, this looks the classic Euro lager from the get-go. Colour is standard pale yellow. Sure, it's not the best look in the world, but it's not bad for the style.

Wet grain and a little sweetness on the nose. A little something organic and a slight green apple note to go with it. Not great, but it's still classical for the Euro pale genre again.

Taste is clear, with a touch of sweetness. Some metallic notes with a grainy finish whacked with bread yeast. Not offensive, but the taste is not from the stock of better stylistic examples. Mouthfeel suffers from the aggressive carbonation.

OK, it's not the greatest beer in the world, but it's not bad. It certainly strikes me as something you could drink happily with abandon in the squares of Warsaw or Krakow.

Live review. Poured from the 500ml bottle that I got as a Christmas gift from Mat & Christine. It is part of a whole group of beers that I will taste and rate from that Christmas gift. Poured into my Dark Horse Brewing Company pint glass. Strange "backwards N" stamped on the back label but it could also be: I/1. I am not sure what it might mean of that is even correct.

A Translucent very light orange body with sediment floating about under a one inch off white creamy head that leaves little to no lacing. Good look for the style from which I do not expect a whole lot of good looks. 4.0

S Smell of barley husks, very organic, grainy and a whisp of sweet honey in the background. Frankly, it has the smell of a weak Euro lager, so I suppose it is to style. 3.0

T That fakey, slight sweetness is in the taste along with the strong barley husk taste. This is really forgettable. 3.0

M Pretty thin but I would expect that from this style. I do not like it very much but it is true to the style, making it a challenge to score correctly. 2.5

D Well good with the low ABV, level of thinness but I do not see seeking it out again. 4.0

500ml bottle

A- Zamkowe Jasne pours a very pale, very transparent dirty yellow color with lots of lively carbonation. Its small pure white head disipates after about a minute leaving patches and some sticking.

S- Corny, grainy, macro lager nose.

T- Tons of pale malt up front, no detectable hop bitterness except for a slight citrus note on the finish. Some spiceyness. Funky aftertaste.

M- Medium/light body, slightly syrupy. Carbonation is moderate.

D- This one goes down very easy, as with most pale lagers from Poland. Fans of Polish beer, this is a must try.

Saw this bottle sitting alone at Greens the other week and decided to take a gamble on it. Polish lagers always seem to go well for me, very drinkable and light for summer.

A - Poured a plae golden yellow with a big white fizzy head, at least two inches. Slowly settled down but left about a half inch throughout session. No lace, but awesome visible carbonation, tons of straming bubbles throughout. Really the best I could figure a pale lager looking.

S - Light, grainy and a bit of a bread touch mixed in there, pretty typical.

T - Light, nice malt back, and that was about it. Some earthy grains, nothing murky or moldy. Nice bread flavors and good use of some almost corn like qualities.

M - Really good carbonation left an awesome feel. Just alive and really went down very very well, Awesome consistency and just overall depth in feel was nice.

D - Very cold+very good. Such a light lager, could easily drink all night, or all day doing yard work, just very very nice.

Overall this was a classic euro lager, but done very well. Seemed very fresh and very enjoyable. Rating it very good in its category as it is one of the best I have had in this category. Woud definatly try again.
