Thin white head on a pale beer. Low head retention, some lacing.

Skunky bready aroma. (Green bottles??)

Flavor isn't that bad if you can get past the the skunk. Uggghh. Sweet bread perhaps. Uggghh.

Highly carbonated, medium thin mouthfeel.

Didn't like this one at all. Normally if a beer is subpar due to an issue like it being past its prime or infected then I won't review. The brewer chose green bottles and thus, its skunkyass flavor. Pass, unless you can't find another Poland tick elsewhere.

It poured an odd yellow colour that I wasn't expecting and a very large pristine white head. It smelled like sour cheap grains, maybe a little more sour than the smell of most cheap beers.
The taste was of sour grain and cheap hops. It was not especially good. It was better than plenty of American macrobrews, but it was definitely not good. My favourite thing about this beer was the name. Lech. I felt like leching, so I had myself a Lech.

Poured from can. Can’t really detect much of an aroma, maybe a bit floral. Pours clear and pale. The slightest hint of bitterness. Light and thin, with average carbonation. Overall, not that great, but still somewhat refreshing on a hot day.

500 ml bottle poured into imperial pint glass.

A- Dark golden body with rocky 2 finger head after aggressive pour. Disappates quickly, poor lacing but lively beading.

S- Very skunky hops, no real malt profile.

T- Watery, skunky bitter hops, slight maltiness in the beginning, but the hops quickly dominate.

M- Stale and thick yet watery! how can this be? Not crisp and clear, fresh as i want.

D- Poor taste, poor mouthfeel, i dont feel refreshed, just a stale residue left on the tongue. Give me a Rothaus Pils!

Appearence: Lech is yellow in color, with a strange head, looks like a ginger ale head but actually lasts some time. Leaves patchy lace.

Smell: Light smell, a little yeasty.

Taste: A little malty, but aftertaste is hoppy. Strangely.

Mouth feel: Thin and watery.

Drinkability: I guess it is O.K. if you like skunky euro-lagers.

Not one of my favorite beers. I bought it because I was told Polish delis in my area cannot keep it on the shelf. Tyskie is much better. Whoever is buying it up can have my share.

Pours as close you can get to clear, with a yellow'ish tinge. White head that dissipates with some lacing. Smells of cooked vegetables, with some very mild grassy aroma. Flavour is almost non-existent, but a some small off flavours in there. Not completely bad either, since the flavour is quite faint. Huge carbonation makes this a bit harder to drink. Would be ok on a really hot day, but not in the winter. Took a chance on buying this, not impressed.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I haven't had a beer from my ancestral homeland in a while, but this find on a local mix-a-six shelf lends me such an opportunity. It pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises musty wheat, light flowers, very light brown grass, and a faint hint of the beginning of skunking. I have no idea why, as the store in question isn't conducive to daylight entering the store to any appreciable degree, much less the beer section near the back wall, but at least the skunking seems to be at a decided minimum. The taste brings in more of the same, with the mustiness in full force, stronger than ever, providing evidence that the skunk-like smell wasn't actually evidence of skunking, but rather a crappy beer. Hell, the finish is awash in soil-encrusted tobacco. This is awful. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly watery feel. Overall, what I thought was a case of light-taint turned out to just be a horrid beer. Well, at least I don't have to have a talk with the beer manager, and, better, I don't have to drink any more of this swill wannabe.

A: Poured a crystal clear macro-gold with a thin sudsy off white head that quickly dissipated to a bare surface. Visible carbonation was extremely soft, almost non-detect.

S: some corn and fresh green vegetables.

T: starts out with some semi-sweet corn and buttery green vegetables which is followed by and balanced by a dry grassy hopping. There is some lemon peels towards the finish which is quick off the tongue. Overall not impressed with the flavor and one that comes off like stale, boring and bland.

M: light, watery with a sour hopping and some dry grassiness. Carbonation is flat.

D: Drinkability is not very, a typical euro-pale that underachieves and leaves much to be desired. Don't bother.

Had big notes of fusel alcohol that one would expect to have in a malt liquor, big notes of corn on the palate and in the nose. One could do better by visiting or revisiting other Polish beers and I thought a better name for this beer would be Belch !

Golden yellow color, very clean, light carbonation. White and abundant foam, not bad.
Faint smell, light maltiness, not of great quality.
Quite scarce in the mouth, but not offensive, well. Some oxidation.
Not convincing.
Low profile beer, useless and avoidable.

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

A: Poured from a bottle into a Porterhouse Palaner stein in low altitude Galway, Ireland. Pours a five finger head that quickly goes down to two finger head in a minute and a half. A clear, bubbly yellow. Standard fare.

Smell: A pungent scent of barley and malt, maybe a hint of piney hops.

Taste: Fizzy open to a couple notes, one of malt, and one shaping hoppy note, but not quite pine as I thought earlier. Can't quite place it. Finish is wet and nasty.

MF: Watery, light, and smooth.

Dr: At this price range, I'd sooner have it over most of the discount brews in Ireland if it were on draught, but if I had me pick in the store I'd go with a discount Belgian macro.

The finish gets more crisp as you drink it.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

500ML bottle poured into a glass

Appearence: Light straw color. The head dissapated very quickly

Smell: Initial aroma was a bit skunky. Light aroma of hay (stale grain?) after I settled into it.

Taste: Slight maltiness that soon overtaken by hop bitterness. Medium carbonation. Not too impressive.

Mouthfeel: Tasted watery even though medium carbonation and the slight maltiness. I really thought it woiuld be one of those crisper, dryer beers - maybe the "Premium Beer" descriptor on the label should have been a warning.

Drinkability: In fairness, it was drinkable, just nothing special. Actually left me with a little stale aftertaste that could only be abated by another drink.
