3.13/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

22 oz bottle ?

A- Transparent yellow color, big, kind of sticky white head, lots of fast rising carbonation.

S- Corny and shallow, good old macro malty nose

T- Subtle malt character balanced by a weak hop flavor, bright with carbonation, subtle blasts of citrus fruits come through on the finish.

M- not much to this beer really, very light, boarder line refreshing. No off flavors which (IMO) is rare in an average euro-lager in a green bottle.

D- Very drinkable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Drank a small portion (~100ml) poured into a glass from a 500ml bottle

A- Crystal clear golden yellow with quite a few bubble streams carrying medium-large bubbles to a small ring of lace at the top.

S- Smells slightly skunked and somewhat bland

T- Tastes like white wheat bread and a bit skunky

F- Feels light-bodied with decent carbonation for a quick ride over the tongue

D- Drinks quick and painlessly like a cheap Euro Pale Lager should

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a golden straw yellow with about a finger width of white bubbly head. Bubbles are very present and there is excellent clarity.

Smell - Mellow apples, golden raisins, sweet malts.

Taste - Hint of the apples comes through in the taste. No real hoppiness or bitterness. Slightly bready flavours. Not overly sweet as the smell would suggest.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very refreshing.

Overall - An easy drinking lager from Lech. Nothing super spectacular with the flavours going on, but a very refreshing brew for a hot day. I always like to come back to my roots with Polish beers and this is one of the ones I return to.

Was waiting for the can to have a picture of Walesa on it, but probably against union rules.

Looks decent, clear amber yellow, nice head with good retention and hints of lacing.

Musty hop and a slight metallic graininess. Not much else.

Just enough malt in there to keep it from being totally bland. Weird metallic taste ruined the middle. Wondering if this is old stock. ( Date on bottom reads 271006 ) Finish has that slightly dry, slightly spicy euro lager taste.

Feels was similar to others in this style. Also tends to flatten out like many in this style.

Better than say Slavutich, and better than I expected. Would like to try a fresher sample however.

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!

A: on the light brown side of gold.

S: Weak smell of malt.

T: Ok when cold, but as it gets slightly warmer, it becomes hoppier and more sour/bitter.

M: Watery

D. Light enough to drink several but only when kept very chilled. Taste drastically changes for the worse as it starts to warm. Drink fast!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Half litre bottle poured into pint glass.

A: Golden clear, small head, kept some lacing.

S: Some vanilia, grain.

T: On the sweet side, hint of corn at the finish. Not as skunky as Heineken.

M: Medium body. moderate carbonation, goes down easily.

O Slightly too sweet but pretty good for a Euro lager, not offensive or dominated by ajuncts.

Can: a standard macro-esque 500mL big green can.

Aroma: pours a fairly flat amber yellow with light but steady carbonation. A one-finger white head with patchy, sporadic lacing. Looks... flaccid.

Appearance: pours a fairly flat amber yellow with light but steady carbonation. A one-finger white head with patchy, sporadic lacing. Looks... flaccid.

Taste: smells of a fairly typical massively macro Euro lager - musky malts and some light grains and hops. Okay.

Aftertaste: follows the nose - I really couldn't pick this out from a row of other macro Euro lagers. Reasonable, but not mind-blowing. Nothing to set it out from the rest.

Mouth feel: drops away pretty quickly as expected. Just a touch of grass hops.

Overall: a standard Euro lager - acceptable but not mind blowing. I only bought a can of it, but apparently Dan Murphy's sells it for $36 for a case of 24 x 500mL - making it the cheapest beer by far.
