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.

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.

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!

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!

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

Purchased this at the Prestige Hotel in Poland on tap. (Had a really cool pint glass I brought home and was broke by baggage at the airline).

This had an almost clear golden color with about 2in white head. This had a very light aroma, almost musty. It had a smooth taste, was light in the mouth with medium carbonation. There was a slight hop after taste but very unimpressive. Not too much else to add. I was able to drink 4 or 5 pints before going to my room, so it was drinkable.

Poland is a country that has some interesting beers, but Lech Premium is not one of them. This seems like a standard Euro lager with skunkiness and all and is probably intended as a standard macro brew in its country of origin.

Lech pours a light gold color, with about a finger of foam that thins out rather quickly. Some lacing is left in the wake of the foam. Seeing how that this was bottled in green glass, it should come as no surprise that there is a skunky aroma about this beer. Musty grains, wet paper smell, and grassiness can all be detected in the nose as well. The beer feels a bit thin on the tongue contains a moderate amount of carbonation. The first sip of the beer had some sweet grain flavors and even had a bit of a minty taste to it. The skunk made its presence known in the flavor as well, and notes of wet paper, husky grains, and some light DMS/green apple flavors were detected. There was some hop bitterness with grassy,herbal and medicinal flavors noticeable. The overall flavor wasn't too impressive because the brew seemed to be a little bit watery on top of everything else. A moderate dryness/bitterness is present in the finish, with husky grains, DMS, and grassy flavors lingering on. Lech finishes with no alcoholic warmth.

This wasn't exactly an interesting beer. Not entirely offensive, but there wasn't enough offered here that would make me reach for another one of these.
