Pours with a lot of vigor, oversize fluffy white head but a bit under carbonated as far as the liquid goes. Clear golden yellow color, no haze

Tastes clean but with personality. A lot of people say it is basic Euro-Lager but as someone who prefers that style, this is an outstanding beer for me.

There is a sweetness at first and a spicy bridge that leads to a somewhat lingering hop taste. While the hop lingers so does the sweetness which is a bit of a turn off for a session beer

I prefer a bit dryer beer but for anyone looking for a good crisp Euro lager that might turn their wife on to beer, this could be it

500ml can. Seems like there's two different Lech breweries. Ah well.

This beer pours a crystal clear, medium golden yellow colour, with two fingers of bubbly, very loosely foamy dirty white head, which leaves a few instances of sudsy distant landform lace around the glass as it quickly dissolves.

It smells of mildly grainy pale malt, watery aged lemon, and musky, somewhat dead grassy hops - typically inoffensive Euro-lager, especially one protected by the can. The taste is more of the same, though the lightly skunky hops seem more front and center (Saaz' retarded cousin?), and the malt getting a sort of stale sweet white breadiness thing going on. Ever so soft alcohol warming.

The carbonation is sprightly, with a fine-honed edge, the body a decent medium weight, and actually fairly smooth, the lingering hops not pungent enough to cause any real damage. It finishes off-dry, the graininess of the pale malt contending easily enough with those upstart bland hop notes.

Another 'Premium' beer, that offers nothing of the sort. At least this one is actually OK, I could see downing multiple cans of it, were I in the company of Polish friends at a summer 'cue. Otherwise, just an average Euro-lager, and all that implies, trope-wise, vis-a-vis their Yankee counterparts.

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: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Very faint aromas of sweet bready malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but has somewhat stronger flavors of bready malts along with slight bits of sweetness. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels rather light-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has some pleasant flavors of bready malts, but it seems a little bland and like it could use some more in the way of hops.
