500 ml can, bought at a polish shop in Arnhem. Poured into a Guinness pint glass. ABV 5,7% Golden yellow colour with one finger of soapy white head, with low retention. No lacing of course left behind, just a couple of bubbles in the body. Typical macro lager aroma, but very faint, almost non existent. Malty taste but only a bit sweet. Aftertaste is much sweeter. Very thin and watery body, minimal carbonation. Overall less than average macro lager tasting beer, very easily forgetable.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Color is clear golden. The head is light but still nice, medium-large and white. Only a little lace.

S: lots of sweet malts, but with a slight off-smell of boiled vegetables. Some bitter hops?

T: Sweet malt and some bitter hops, but the alcohol together with a marzipan rather rough taste.

M: long bitter aftertaste. Body is medium as well as the carbonation.

O: just another standard macro lager. This is rather a Euro Pale lager than a Märzen. Absolutely nothing to write home about.

This is the latest addition the unusually wide range of Polish lagers at my local off-licence, and one of the most attractive so far. But it's still not going to win any beauty pageants, not with its generic golden body and completely average white head. The nose is noticeably and aggressively alcoholic, smelling kind of like a can of cheap cider, without much nuance to speak of save a hint of sulfur and a touch of glue. The flavor is sweet and a bit thick, so if this style classification is to be trusted, then it's pretty much spot on, but that's the best that can be said for it. It tastes like some kind of lemony beer and rum concoction, and that's how it drinks. Not terrible, but far from recommendable.

A dark offering, almost amber in colour with a taste of fruitiness and almonds and a little thin. This is a full bodied brew with a minor lace as its crowning glory or lack of. Does nothing for me...but I am glad I met it...

Warka, ABV: 5.7%.
550 ml can, gift from a friend (bought in Poland).

A: The liquid is clear and bright amber in colour, with an average white head that leaves some lacing in the glass.

S: Grainy malt, bread, syrup and banana skids. Not much.

T: White bread, cereals, citrus, syrup, banana skids and alcohol.

M: Sticky carbonation. Both body and bitterness is small to medium.

O: As usual with the Polish standards, it doesn't benefit from the slightly higher ABV. Warka is far from the worst example, though. It's still drinkable. The taste is neither good nor bad.

Clear amber orange. Pours a good yellowish head that settles to a film. Gives up a thin bit of lace.

Overall this beer comes across as almost achingly sweet. Lots of sweet malt in the nose with some hop lurking in the background. Nice touch of grain in there as well. The flavour is dominated by the malt and the whole effect is just too sugary. Carbonation is nicely tuned.

This beer has a couple of nice touches, but is just too sweet to be really enjoyable. Not enough balance, too watery.

Poured nice into the glass with a nice white head. the color was a amber color with the smell being sweet. The mouthfeel was not clean but that of a light syrup texture. The alcohol content was 7 percent but the alcohol wasn't present in the taste.The beer was lacking character along with taste. Overall I was disappointed

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

Let me preface things by saying that I'm ignoring the current designation of this beer and reviewing it as a Euro pale lager (or something generally akin thereto. I'll explain later. Anyway, it pours a clear pale straw topped by over a finger of white foam. The nose comprises white bread, corn, dusty wheat, and light honey. The taste brings in more of the same, with a dull sweetness and a vague twang of booze duking it out amidst the aforementioned elements. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a mildly syrupy feel. Overall, a pretty meager beer in general. As a marzen/O-Fest, it's downright terrible, but as a normal Euro lager, it's just mildly sad.

It's been awhile since i've had beer from a can and i wasn't expecting much but i was pleasantly surprised. The crystal clear straw yellow color was covered by a fluffy white head that faded slowly leaving a thin white film on top. A faint odor of cardboard is there but very little aroma overall.This brew is lacking in the taste department, i would say it's like a thin vienna lager at best. By not being over carbonated i could drink many of these with a couple kelly dogs on a hot summer day.

This one poured alright, with a white fluffy head on top of a golden amber brew. The aroma is sweet, very sweet. Apples jump right out of the glass. There was also a very surprising hint of alcohol.

Apples and caramel in the start of the taste. There is a solid grainy kick just before the aftertaste, which is dry and bready. If it weren't for the apple taste overpowering the grains, this one would be a much better brew than it is. It is easy to drink, and the carbonation is at the right level.

500 ml can split and poured into a Bruery tulip.
5.7% ABV, Best By 07-16-2011.

A - Golden and mostly clear like a European Okto should be, this has very nice clarity and a thick, short ring of white foam. Good lace left on the glass too.

S - Sweet corn and pils malt open the aroma with an average but certainly not offensive start. Märzen malt profile is surprisingly good and inviting, but the aroma is average overall.

T - Thin Märzen malt profile with pils and bit of corn-like sweetness. Very little English hop to the taste.

M - Medium-light bodied and smooth with a clean profile and lightly dry, crisp finish.

O - Definitely a surprise that this one isn't terrible, after all, I was expecting it to be when I bought a single of it. I suppose lower standards help. A decently drinkable polish brew.
