Thanks to chonyr for the brew.
A brilliantly clear, golden straw coloured lager. Mildly carbonated, only managed to produce a thin white head which quickly dissipated. No lacings evident.
Toasted grain, a touch of honey cooked carrots, and some grassy hops with a metallic twang.
Some toasted white bread and grain husk. A hint of corn, sweetness, and the hint of cooked veggies. Slightly metallic with a grassy and almost peppery hop finish.
A light bodied, crisp, and refreshing brew. Malt, adjuncts, and hops decently balanced, although a touch more hops and a touch less sweetness would be truer to style (as well as a bigger head and perhaps more carbonation).
Certainly drinkable and sessionable, and would make a good thirst quencher on a hot summer's day. While nothing particularly inspired, it is something i would drink again.

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.
