3.58/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 0.5l brown bottle. Best before stamped on front of bottle.

Appearance: Bright, clear pale gold in colour. Pours a huge pillowy white foam head. A healthy level of carbonation aids in the beers amazing head and its retention.

Smell: Musty, grainy with a floral aroma.

Taste: Smooth, creamy, medium-bodied with an even rich & malty mouthfeel. Sweetness is moderate, a bit sugary. Raw grain follows with a slighty dry crispness. Hops are quite zesty with a refreshing limey bite, salt, metallic and spice flavours. A tight carbonation lifts this to the next level on the palate. Alcohol (fusels) can be detected. Finishes grain dry with residual sweetness, floral and alcohol aftertastes.

Notes: A very good export lager. Potent with many malt liquor qualities.

A - Light hazy yellowish straw. Big white head- lasting

S - Biscuit, lightly hopped, bread,

T - Light earthy, bread, light hops,

M - Frothiness is ok, a bit on the watery side, carbonation is low

O - Drinkablility is real good. but flavor level is pretty low. American beer flavor has far surpassed the Polish version.

Pours a crystal clear golden body capped by a foamy bright white head that holds fairly well; dropping to a creamy collar that's buoyed by carbonation. The nose expresses clean, sweet, grainy malt with a mild floral hoppiness in the background. The body is light/medium with a fine and gently effervescent carbonation. It's lightly crisp on the tongue at first, becoming smooth and creamy in the mouth as it warms. Very nice! The flavor reaffirms the malty sweetness suggested by the aroma, but also shows more complexity. It's very well balanced by a spicy and gently citrusy (lemon, lime) hop flavor and bitterness. It finishes dry with some residual grainy/grassy malt sweetness, mild peppery hoppiness, and a touch of alcohol (which is surprising for a beer of only 5.7%). A really surprisingly good pilsener! Quite refreshing, delicate, and interesting. Certainly worth trying!

Picked up a bottle at EuroMarket in Astoria. Aside from the bit of skunk, this is a decent beer. Shame about the green glass bottle. There's a crisp bready toast with just a touch of caramel. Slight spicy hops finish the beer is what seems to be a fine, but abused, example of the style. I hope to find a fresher find some day.

I was lucky enough to pick up a couple of bottles of this, and while expecting an average Euro Pils, I was very surprised...I could actually taste fresh hop bitterness! Must of been right off the boat...very tasty, one of the best I have tried. Sad to say I haven't seen it since (Feb. 2001) Reccomended!

Export Lomza: In a funky little bottle. Pale golden colored beer, with a foamy, pure white head. Clean, grainy aroma. Very light in body and in taste, with adjuncty flavor, of grain, and the barest hint of malt. Clean, dry finish. Not too bad, hella easy to drink, but there’s lots better out there.

This appears much like Lomza Petne but is also designated "1968" on the label and is 7.8% abv, as opposed to the lower alcohol of the "other" Lomza Petne in BA database.

Pours clear orange with a short white head. Nice looking.

Nose of simple candi sugar, light banana and cooked peaches.

Mouthfeel is medium creamy and and with a nice medium body.

Flavors are simple candi sugar, banana, Belgian fruit and cooked stone fruits. Pleasant, but almost sweet and somewhat one dimensional without a lot of character. Pleasant but simple.

A: Pours a clear, straw color with light orange hues and a sudsy thin white head. Feverish carbonation rains upwards at an intense rate.

S: A slight skunky aroma is emitted upon first opening but thankfully fades to a sweet buttery malt scent.

T: The flavor is sweet buttery malt coating the tongue and is very slick. There is a sour malting and hopping on the fade and finish that sticks around long after it leaves the tongue.

M: moderate per style, fizzy carbonation and a slick palate on the tongue. The aggressive carbonation is felt in the stomach after sampling.

D: Overall a bland and boring entry, a beer you wouldn't feel guilty dumping after sampling half a glass.

Served in a pint mug, bright gold body with a good finger of foam on the surface.

Nice toasty aroma of bready grains, maybe a touch smoky even. Fairly interesting for a pedestrian style.

Flavors of toasty puffed wheat, clean grains, dry subtle noble hop bitterness. Very clean and simple, but flavorful and unique at the same time. No flaws or off flavors. Dry aftertaste, not sweet. Extremely drinkable, light bodied and smooth. Something from the Polish lager category that seems to transcend a little bit, which is surprising.

On the pour a translucent golden amber color with a pretentious head, and nice covering lace. Light hints of yeast, but malt dominates the nose, crisp and clean, pleasant. A bit over sweet at the start with the top shamefully thin and the finish scantily hopped with a middling carbonation and the ever present dry and lingering aftertaste, just to “Thin-waisted” for me, but still a drinkable beer when you want something light.

This is an excellent beer from Poland, although the beer could have also come from Germany, with it's distinct maltiness and hoppiness.

Appearance was nice, with a bright golden color and good head retention.
Smell was magnificent, herbal hops, earthy, well balanced with a nice maltness, that leaned towards sulfur.
Taste was a little less than the smell, first sip was a little watery, second sip full of malts and hops, and for some reason, the watery mouthfeel goes very well with this. I certainly increases the drinkability of the beer. The hops could be a little more aromatic, what the smell promises should be delivered in the taste.

A bit different than the typical German pilsners, but absolutely a very good beer.

Wow, I didn't know Lomza has an export lager. Now I can get mediocre Polish macroboringness right here on the east coast. Pours basic and golden with almost no head. The nose has caramel malt and a hint of spicy hops but pretty faint.

This is fairly agreeable in flavor with a little malt and a tiny bit of hops and an overall grainy, almost vegetative quality to the malt. However, it is inoffensive and slightly watery, and the finish is crisp and somewhat bitter. More or less what I expected, although not altogether terrible. This is comparable to most of Poland's top lagers and better than a few, not that there aren't higher compliments I could give a beer.

500 ml bottle:

Pours straw yellow with a thin, fizzy white head that settles to a wide, well-retained, patch. Dotted lacing slides down the glass with some stickage.

The smell is of strong "Euro skunk" - lime/sulfur, with light floral/grassy notes.

The taste is sweet upfront - grainy, with a touch of lime, but with a floral, grassy dry finish.

It is light-bodied with ample, though not too fizzy, carbonation. Very crisp and smooth.

A refreshing brew that is easy to drink.

Served in a tumbler.

This beer was "accidentally" opened at work today, so I figured I'd partake in its contents for the sake of it. It pours a clear pale straw topped by a finger or so of white foam. The nose comprises light wheat, hard water, light grass, and flowers. Everything is mild and muddled (in an inoffensive way). The taste brings in more of the same, with the grass and flowers coming through a bit more powerfully, though not enough to really help this beer claw its way out of mediocrity. The body is light, with a light moderate carbonation and a watery feel. Overall, a nice little beer, better than I expected (thanks to some bad experiences with pale Polish lagers), but nothing at all memorable.

Appearance: Good stream of carbonation in my Duvel glass. Golden amber colour. Not a very light colour like some lagers. Respectable lacing. Head dies away to thin foam.

Aroma: Very appetising. Smells like a good German Dortmunder... honey, barley malt and a suggestion of grassy hops.

Taste: Very well balanced. Quite sweet with nice mild bitterness at finish. Aappleskin. Solid malty backbone. Flavour is mild but good.

Overall: Good but perhaps not great. Some German Dortmunders and Helles seem to have just that little touch of character or class that this lacks but this is good and really should be considered as a Polish lager and quite a good one at that.

81/100
