Where the smell was certainly nothing to write home about, everything else was quite impressive, especially for this style. I poured this from its 500mL can into my commemorative Lord of the Rings chalice. Yes, I'm a dork. Anyhow, I am typically not a fan of lagers, but I am a fan of just about anything from eastern Europe, so I figured I'd give it a go. Usual golden colour, snow white head. Doesn't look terrible, but doesn't strike me, either. The smell was a nice mix of malt and hops, but again, typical. Not striking or unusual in anyway. Then, however, came the taste. Very good. Typical lager at first, but then a maltiness followed by a roasted nuttiness in the aftertaste. Very good. There also doesn't seem to be a hell of a lot of carbonation with this stuff, either. That said, mouthfeel is very nice, very smooth. Easy to drink, and at 7%abv (not7.5%) this is a good level of "horsepower" for a brew of this style. Overall, I was quite surprised by this one, especially given the style. Fantastic.

Not too bad. Near golden color with a tall somewhat fluffy white head. An average lager taste, with a bit more alcohol, much like a higher strength version of Carlsberg Lager. Actually seem to gain flavors as it warms. Loses the sourness and has a dry roasted nut flavor and finish. A strong pale malt flavor to start with a mild hop after taste. Definitely drinkable.

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

Very clear golden colour. Poured with a generous frothy white head that disappeared quickly leaving a thin head that produced very little lace. Light spicy aroma with a bit of sweetness. Malty sweet to start, with a little bit of ripe fruit. Bitterness shows up towards the finish and carries into a lightly bitter aftertaste. Medium to heavy body, fairly smooth with a relatively high carbonation level.

500mL bottle, listed at 7% abv, best before date on label.

An unremarkable brew. Pours gold with a big rough soapy white head that immjediately dissapates. No lace.

Barest scent of hops. Initially sweet, then dry and bitter. Lingers slightly bitter with a bit of hops aftertaste. No real muscle anywhere in this one.

Only thing it's really got going for it is that it is not actively dislikeable or offensive. Yawn.

A decent unoffensive brew that you can have again and again. Malty and did pick up carbonation others didn't, perhaps theirs was too cold or old and mine fresh in. And that likely affected taste and ratings too. Cannot detect the high alcohol. Sweet up front with tad bitter at end.

Golden, crystal clear brew with butterscotch highlights. The head is snow white and short on staying power leaving only a thin ring of foam. No lace. At first smell, I find malt and some orchard fruit (mostly peach). Second and third tries yield some complexity in the form of candied sugar and vanilla laced with peat and faint apricot. Had mild to no carbonization and the texture was akin to water... quite thin. Light sweetness accompanied by hints of biscuit are balanced by a weak but sustained bitterness, however, no hop signature was detected (maybe by design). The finish is medium long, bitter, supported by a mild residual sweetness.

Not the kind of beer that would move me to purchase another. I laboured to finish the contents of the bottle and had a fleeting thought that maybe a Molson Dry would have been more satisfying

There really isn't much difference beyween Okocim Lager & Okocim Mocne. This is a very flat looking lager with little head. Reminds me of apple juice. The mouthfeel is smooth/flat and lacks body. The taste is bland....light malt, not really any hoppiness. Some alcohol aftertaste. A boring beer experience.

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

The quintessential lager color a unblurred gold, the head portly in size, brilliant white in color, frothy in texture and as it disintegrates, a fine film of lace forms on the glass. Prototypical lager nose, malt, citrus crisp, clean and fresh, with the start cloyingly sweet, full of malt with the top skimpy in its feel to the palate. Finish is stingingly acidic, alcohol bitter along with the hops that are pertinent to the style, the alcohol bitterness lingers on as a substitute for the aftertaste, and the 7.8% ABV, gives the “Tummy” a bit of warming. Damn I wish this was their Porter, but this is just an average lager with double the alcohol, which does little for me.

Originally Reviewed on 18 May 2003. I am writing this review from my notes.
Well, on the plus side, I can now say that I have had a beer from Poland.
This brew is clear pale yellow color w/ slightly malty nose. It has a medium mouthfeel w/ a surprising clean finish. it was very well balanced. Decent, but nothing outstanding

500ml bottle poured into 500ml Okocim Pilsner glass.

Huge white, sticky head. Good lacing. Nice golden color to the beer. Very clear, obviously filtered.

Sweet and malty with a little earthyness. Some hints of citrus.

Sweet and malty to start, but subtle and very mellow on the follow through. Hints at some hops to balance it all out, but not as much as to be desired. Alcohol comes through at the end of each sip, but doesn't really detract away from the brew.

Overall, this is a decent strong lager and worth a try if you like the style. Personally, I really prefer the Okocim "OK" Beer, which this beer seems to try and emulate but with more of a kick. The kick is there, but the OK has more flavor and is far more quaffable.

I've been steamed lately that this Polish brewer's fine Porter is no longer being produced, but, however, they are happy to provide us with their "malt liquor." Is it worthy? Let us see...
Appearance: pale yellow, highly carbonated, with a beautifully fluffy, cloudish head.
Aroma: a bit sour, lemony, notes of straw, minerals, metal.
Taste: utterly blase', missing just about everything I'd think would be required in order to provide flavor. If any exists, it's utterly inevident to me, I'm drawing blanks, as I sip from this tall glass of nothing.
Short finish, bland, flat character.
Further in, sweetish notes arise, but feeling thoroughly on the cornish side.
Lack of body, malt, hops, anything at all, gives little to redeem this hopeless brew. Pretty boring, a touch too strong, and not good in the least.

Poured a darker gold than a normal lager. Fairly good head that didn't stick around, but leaves a fine lace on the glass. Not much for aroma except for hops. Good carbonation that really explodes in the mouth, leaving a little sweetness in the finish with very little bitterness. Another enjoyable lager, I could sit and drink this all night.

Came in a 500ml brown bottle, with a freshness date on the back label. Pours out a deep clear golden hue with a big foamy head. Head subsides after a while, but leaves a bit of lacing down the glass. Nose is of malt, grass, a bit spicy and floral hops. Flavour is balanced, leaning more towards the malt side, mild spice, a little bit of herbs/hay. Goes down smooth at first, but the alcohol content proceeds to provide a bit of a kick in the aftertaste.
Drinkable, but in small doses.

Okacim Mochne

Presentation: 500 ml brown bottle

Pours a slightly deeper gold than your average lager, with a respectable white, sudsy heat that dissipates with 1 minute. Aroma is of grass/grains with a hint of spices detected. The taste is at first “lager clean”, but there is a perceptible alcohol astringency, followed by slightly copper-metallic hop finish, with some spices trown in between. Mouthfeel is moderately carbonated, and thin.
Notes: This is a noticeably strong beer. The alcohol doesn’t dominate, but it is definitely poking around in there. It is quite a nice beer, and if you ever find yourself saying “Chce mi sie pic”, then I do recommend that you give this boozy little friend from Poland a try.

A crystal clear golden body displays dozens of streams of fast rising bubbles. It's quite effervescent! The bright-white head starts full and frothy, holds well, and then drops to a creamy 1/4" lid. The retention is quite good and it holds through the entire glass leaving spotty lace as it goes. The aroma clearly expresses alcohol along with some grainy/husky malt. It's very clean, however, and the alcohol isn't overly distracting. The medium body is accentuated by its effervescent carbonation leaving a mouthfeel that's gently crisp. In the flavor a clean, lightly sweet, and grainy malt is tempered by alcohol. It's not overbearing, but present, and seems to diminish a bit as you progress through the glass. It finishes with a drop of sweet honeyish malt on the front of the tongue. One of the better strong Polish lagers.

Pours with a soft white head over clear golden liquid, actively carbonated. Nose is malty with just a hint of pear. Taste is predominately sweet , showing hints of dryness and a strangely metallic presence, then some alcohol flavors. A touch of bitterness in the finish, fades out quickly. An unremarkable strong lager.

I liked this more than the Zagloba but it was still a slightly below average beer. I had the can version and it poured a golden color with a thick white head and lively carbonation. Faint hops aroma. A little on the weak side flavor-wise, it was mostly hops and metal. Dry finish. I won't bother with this one again.

Czech Lager are hard to fit into styles. Anyway this one is a bit lighter on the malt with a nice spicy hop flavor, not too bitter. Good beer with a respectable alcohol level.
