Hey, what do you want for $1.25 for a 500ml can. This is what I expected it to be, I just hope it doesn't do something bad to me!

The pop top almost didn't open right, but I got it open enough to get the beer out. It poured a nice thick head that quickly receded. There is not good or bad aroma to speak of.

There isn't much taste either. It isn't too sweet. It almost has a little hops taste. So far, though, it seems inoffensive enough to drink a couple of these when you are already gone.

Not something I would buy again except for the novelty.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Clear gold with one finger of vanishing white head. No appreciable lacing.
Smell is malty grains with a bit of lemon.
Taste is immediately sweet and bready. There is a kiss of spice that maybe comes from the hops. A light lemon taste is the finish.
Mouthfeel is quite full for the style. Carbonation is good enough.
Overall a good warm weather beer would be nice with some brats on the grill.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

16.9 oz can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced quickly to a thin layer. It is a golden straw yellow clear as day with bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Sweet pale and bready malts followed by mild noble hops. Smells standard for an EPL.

Taste: Same as above. Very tasty lager.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, drinkable, medium bodied, mild tingly bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Not an expert in this style, but this is a good beer on hot humid day like today.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Okay. This stuff pours a clear brass-straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises old wheat and light dry grass. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a strong vein of odd fruitiness and an aftertaste laden with the dust of many unkempt attic rooms. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a pretty weak and odd-tasting beer, one I couldn't easily say "Okay" to any time soon.

Much like the Baltika brew I had the other night, skunky aromas fill my senses as soon as I pop the top on this bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a decent sized white head that dissipates quickly to a cap. After airing out a bit the skunk is still in the room, but maybe my nose is used to the smell a bit because I can find some bready pils and a hint of flowers. The flavor is a bit better than the aroma advertised. Nice sweet bready malt presence with a hint of graininess. There's a firm spicy hop bit that provides a great balance to the malty sweetness. Carbonic acid is a bit high and does detract a bit. Medium body with a sweet bubbly mouthfeel and a moderate level of carbonation. Not a bad brew after it airs out a bit.

A: The beer is crystal clear 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 on the surface, a collar around the edge of the glass, and some lacing down the sides.
S: Faint aromas of sweet and grainy malts are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the initial taste has a bit of sweetness and has hints of bready and grainy malts. No hops are perceptible, but they help to keep the sweetness in check.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, clean and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a simple-flavored pale lager that is very easy to drink.

on tap at the new world of beers on Colorado boulevard. from Poland I reckon, this beer pours a really light pale straw color with a big and full white head with O.K. retention (pun intended). generic nose of spent crystal malt and everyday yeast. there is a light lemony flavor up front, but after that this is your classic eastern European wash, not poorly made, just terribly uninteresting. its plenty sessionable though, with a really light body and a relatively excited mouthfeel. a curious beer to import, since its like so many that are made here at home, but I guess variety is the spice of life, even if there isn't much spice happening in this brew. my Molson drinking old man would like it, but it didn't strike a chord with me, it was just O.K. (fine I will stop now).

I'm more of an IPA type, but also a Saas hops pilsner fan - not much better than a cold Urquell on a hot day. Also, shamelessly, a Heineken fan - as far as go-to refreshing daily drinkers go. This O.K. Beer/Okocim is a worthy addition to the aforementioned brews when in the mood for a crisp lager/pilsner with a bit of a bite-y overtone. I like a li'l skunk in my junk. Plus, you can bash someone over the head with the heavy, eastern european-style bottle, if the occasion arises. O.K. indeed!
