Chilled 500ml bottle poured into a tall Pilsner glass.
Pours with a thick creamy head of about 3 fingers which falls gradually enough for the remainder of the bottle to be emptied into the glass after a few pours.
Color is a bright crystal golden amber and displays moderate lacing around the glass.
Smell is fairly anemic unfortunately, not much available other than a weak malt odor. Wheat grain is tied in and a very faint rosemary twang hides in the background.
Taste is very much euro pilsner. Just like the nose - malt up front with touches bread grain, yeast elements and if your really pushing it you can get an orange peel like taste.
Mouthfeel is characterized by moderate carbonation although this is a tad thicker and perhaps even heavier; then the average euro pilsner. The taste elements rise quickly in the mouth and then fade just as quickly to leave a reminder. Its this "reminder" that holds on for a good period of time.
Not earth shattering but one hell of a nice beer

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.
