Okocim is another beer from the region with a ram / goat creature on its label. What is it with these people and goats? Apparently in the 1800's it's all the Polish marketing could come up with. Anyway, on with the beer, which I got from a Polish friend and he claims it's good.

It looks pretty good from the pour and that's a start. A pleasing clear and deep golden colour with a head that, while diminishing, does provide some amount of lacing. Initially there isn't much smell.. but as you get deeper into the glass there's plenty of sweet malts to be had. Unfortunately it's not really interesting either.. and that sort of sums up the taste as well. Lots of sweet malts, a little bit of fruity yeast and an inadequate amount of hops to finish it off.

This is not a well balanced beer and the longer it stays in your mouth the more you'll come to realize it. The sweetness grows far too quickly (or perhaps the hops dissipate even further if possible). Either way you're going to need some teeth brushing after this one.

Mouthfeel is on the watery side with a little bit too much tasteless carbonation on the tip of your tongue. My recommendation here is to pass. The ram on the label that's fondling the beer has clearly had too much to drink.

3.7/5  rDev +17.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Purchased for $2.25 CDN at my local LCBO, Okocim tastes a lot lighter, at 7% ABV, than expected.

Okocim is a pretty straw-colour in my pils glass; the head is small but obstinate and leaves a small amount of lacing.

I am not picking up a lot of action on my nose. Perhaps I am trying it to cold. I will let it open up over the next half hour or so and see what happens.

Okocim is smooth on the palate and tastes, initially, like a pleasant and subtle blend of citrus zest and light honey. It is really rather nice. In fact, it is delicious.

The aftertaste, especially ten minutes after the pour, has a slightly bitter bite that balances nicely with the initial flavours.

This isn't my normal go-to kind of beer for mid-February. But if I like it now, when the temperature is just above 0 C, then I will probably really like it when summer rolls around (if it ever does).

Well done! I will drink Okocim again, for sure.
