look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On draft at Johnny's Cafe , Maspeth, NY

Poured a dark straw hue with a two finger frothy white head. There was good lacing and retention.

The smell featured a light grainy malt with a hint of noble hop.

The taste was likewise grainy with a clean pale malt and balancing herbal hop.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a clean finish.

Overall a tasty Euro lager. Better than most.

A: Poured from a 500ml bottle a clear pale/straw yellow with a thin (1/4-inch) thick white head which fades quickly to the rim and leaves clumpy lace.

N: Grainy, mildly earthy, bready yeasts, estery, malt and faint citrus.

T: Crisp yeasty, grassy, slightly sweet with corn/grains.

M: Light body and carbonation. Somewhat thin a watery finish.

O: Easy drinking basic lager.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: transparent orange color. Bright, active carbonation in the glass while drinking. Finger of head on the pour which settled in but was present while drinking. Scattered random lacing left behind.

Smell: Buttery biscuit tones jump out right away. Hop tones of light tropical fruits and straw are picked up on the body. Creamy yeast tones round out the aroma.

Taste: Straw with some light fruit tones hit the palate first. Easy going buttery yeast tones with some crisp biscuit flavors. Creamy yeast and slightly grainy malt continue into the finish. Toasted almonds and some butterscotch warm up the palate and linger long after drinking.

Mouthfeel: Flavors are crisp, clean, and easily recognizable. Creamy, full bodied yeast texture plays well with the carbonation in this brew.

Overall: This is definitely more then o.k. beer. A lager that hits all the traditional points it should while having some pleasant hop tones which take it to the next level. And for $5 a 4pk, this one is going to be a staple in my fridge for a long time.

I poured this into a glass, it has a golden color body with a very small head that fades to a thin lace around the edge of the glass. The smell has a sweetness to it and also a little malt and corn. The taste is sweet and has a grainy flavor to it. The malt is kinda there. The mouthfeel is smooth and is very drinkable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a pokal pilsner style glass.

A very deep yellow color, almost brown actually, quite clear and good rising carbonation. Head comes out uniform, a bit soapy but with an easy two to three fingers. Not much retention, but not really expecting it, but settles to a good solid thin white collar.

Interesting nose. A mix of light bread malts and corn like sweetness. Very VERY dough ball bread action going on this, quite impressive, almost hints of German but then gets a bit noticeably sweet.

Palate goes with a noticeable Euro lager quality but slightly better. Dough rich malts and a finishing light sweetness. Some good carbonation and thick body for a lager. There is a nice fun bread popping action on this on the swallow too.

This reminds me of a much better version of Stella Artois. Large noticeable malt presence, but if the sweetness was dialed down a bit this would be real impressive.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Golden color. Transparent. Vigorous carbonation forms about a finger of head. Head is composed of equal parts small, medium and large bubbles. Retention is moderate, but very good lacing. Looks refreshing.

S: Smells grassy and herbal. Little to no skunkiness or cooked veggie notes. Malts are lightly sweet biscuit.

T: Hit of sweet crackery malts up front. Hops pop up as grassy, with some metallic notes. Green apple skin, and a good amount of lemon. The hops subdue and the malt takes back over. It is lightly sweet, but definitely more along the lines of a soda cracker or communion wafer.

M: Light and refreshing. The carbonation is more subtle than expected when pouring. Carbonated enough to keep it refreshing, but that's it. Pleasant.

O: This is much better than the last Poland beer I tasted. O.K. Beer is arguably the best Euro Pale Lager I've come across. While not a particularly exciting style, it's good to know that there are examples of it that taste good.

16.9oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A: Pale straw golden color. Great clarity. The bubbly white head settles quickly into a thin cap. Small spotty lacing.

S: Bready and sweet with that pilsner malt familiarity. vague, subtle fruit skin. Mild grassy hopping. Very clean. Simple, though pleasant and appealing.

T: Bready and sweet. Lots of toasted grain. Vague fruit skin. Oily and bitter hops have a spicy herbal bite that balances nicely. Very clean. Lingering herbal bite into the finish with trailing sweet grains.

M: Medium-light body. Round, firm texture. Mild hop oils. Firm scrubbing carbonation really cleans the mouth.

O: Of all the Polish macros on the market, this is easily the best. It's a simple lager, but it offers a pleasantly straightforward drinking experience with more flavor and character than the others can offer. A perfect pairing for Polish cuisine. It can stand up to any sausage, and has the power to cut through more fatty and flavorful dishes.
