Bottle into pint glass
A – 2 finger off-white head left mild lacing and settled to a very thin layer on a slightly brown deep gold beer with moderate carbonation 4
S – Quite average – sweet grasses/malts and a slight bitterness 3.5
T – Grainy sweetness & malts to a grassy slightly fruit finish. Hops and alcohol are mild but there. 3.5
M – Light medium body, drinkable at 7.8%, thinner but good carbonation adds substance 3.5
O – More character than the other polish pale lagers I’ve had and a bit of a surprise for me. I don’t think I’ll be buying this again, but if our paths cross at the right time it may happen 3.5

Finding good Polish food here in NC is tough,but I foud a place,its fitting to have a Polish lager with some perogi,cabbage,and hunters sausage.Poured into a pilsner a light golden with a thinner but well retained white head,lots of tiny bubbles.Toasted grain mainly in the nose,its quite muted,at least no fake sweet corn crap.Flavors are somewhat sweet but sturdy,grainy with a bit of iron flavors keep it from being to sweet.It goes with the food,it doesn't overwhelm or leave me lacking while eating some traditional fare.

Sticky and lacy big white head over clear light golden liquid. Sweet semi-fruity nose with light doughy notes. Green apple-like flavor with a metallic hoppy background. Some alcohol felt in the swallow. Finishes a bit short/weak with the sweetness dominating...just a run of the mill strong Euro-lager.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a pale straw color with a small white head that left not much lacing on the glass. The smell is grainy but does have a detectable noble hop smell. Has an odd sweet taste, not expecting that. Kind of a corny, artficial sweetness, a hint of noble hops. The feel is light and crisp. An average Euro lager, too much of a corn taste to make it good.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: Poured a clear, golden-orange with a 2 finger fizzy dirty white head that displayed moderate retention. Visible carbonation was light.

S: light barnyard grains scents on it and not much else.

T: The flavor started out with some lemony sourness and stale grains with some acidity and tartness. Some oranges but not much else to take notice of here. Overall not impressed.

M: light, oily slick on the tongue with a soft carbonation and a gentle sourness of oranges that laces the tongue on the swallow.

D: Below average drinkability and a big pass on this one.

Pint can from Gene's, poured into a pint glass.

High clarity gold, a swarm of carbonation rises to the surface. Visible trails rising through it. Pretty average all around, no lace and low head retention.

Nose is average, not swilly but nothing out of the ordinary. Sweet grain and honey.

Flavor is similarly sweet, apple, pear, honey, crackery pale malt, slight bitterness from noble hops. Pretty crisp, easy drinking, good for hot weather, pairing with hearty smoked sausage and pierogis.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: The beer is very hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation along with some unusual dark particles floating near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a thin off white head that consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are moderately strong sweet aromas of apple cider and adjunct malts in the nose—corn stands out in particular.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and has some sweetness along with some flavors of yeast, which probably explains what the particles are.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn’t that bad when you compare it to other malt liquors but overall it’s not very good.

I got this from a friend at work.

I poured this into a pilsner glass.Pours a pale yellow slightly hazy. White bubbled heading that disintigrates to nothing with no lacing.

Smell well I am not getting to much of an aroma.Very feint pale malt. A bit bready and yeasty.

Taste again all malt a nice malty backbone which is taken over by the yeastiness which is kind of funky tasting.

Mouth is very slick leaves a coating in the mouth. Buttery. Very flat, medium bodied with very little carbonation.

Drinkability is not to good at all. Left a funny feeling the stomach after a few sips.I guess from the yeasts.

1pt, 9 oz bottle

Pours straw yellow with fast carbonation. The shite head descends to a lasting thin head that leaves some vanishing lacing along the glass.

The smell is of sweet grass - Saaz or related hops . Some alcohol comes through.

Grassy sweetness dominates the taste throughout. Bitter hops peask though, but really only come out in the finish. Sulfur and saltiness become more evident and the drink warms, but remain subdued. Polish lagers, I have found, typically have a sweet characteristic, but this one has it moreso. The alcohol esters are stronger than I would expect from the abv level - I suppose that is because there is not enough to this from masking it. A touch of hop bitterness in the finish, but not enough to balance out the sweetness.

There is a raw astringency to it, though the light to medium body holds up decently. It's not watery at all.

Overall, it's too harsh and uninteresting to me. While having some taste to it, it's too sweet, alcohol too evident, and lacks refreshingness or complexity. It's mediocre/average. There are tastier, smoother Polish beers out there that are just as easily accessible, if not moreso.

A: Pours a very hazy to cloudy dark golden yellow in color with quite a lot of large dark black particles in suspension (I have no idea what these are but they look similar to course ground black pepper). The beer has a quarter finger tall soapy white head that reduces to a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: There is a huge aroma of adjunct malts (I think all adjunct malts might be represented here - definitely corn, grain, and rice). There is quite a bit of sweetness to the aroma as well as some hints of apple cider. Not the most inviting of aromas.

T: Moderate flavors of adjunct malts with moderate amounts of sweetness - corn, rice, and grain are all present and accounted for. Light to moderate notes of apple juice/apple cider as well as some light hints of yeast spices.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Tastes more like a malt liquor, if it had been classified in that style I might have expected the flavors and smells a little more. As a malt liquor, this would probably be a better reviewed beer due to expectations of style. Not one I am likely to get again.

Found at shop-n-save in Niles, IL (Polish supermarket). Served with homemade gołąbki and potatoes. Mmmmm mmm.

Pours a gold-copper colour with plenty of head that sticks around. very faint smell, grains mostly.

Tastes mostly of toasty grains, but not too sweet, not unlike Pilsner Urquell. Feels sturdy in the mouth, but smooth. Definitely drinkable. I think it has more character than Zubr or Zywiec.

Overall a good lager, one of the better beers I've had from Poland.

Poured about a 12 oz bottle into a pilsner glass. A nice, deep gold body with a fluffy white head that had decent retention at first but faded after a few sips. It had a sweet, malty smell; a little less maltier than a German Pilsner. It tasted a little bitter at first but with a nice, sweet aftertaste that would porve to be an excellent balance to the slightly bitter taste. The mouthfeel was pretty thick like an ale; did not feel like I was drinking a pilsner although it looked like one. Very drinkable beer; nice and smooth and goes down easy.

Lomza Petne Mocne (strong) "malt liquor" pours
out a rocky white head over a clear golden brew.
Carbonation is slow, the nose is of yeast and grain.
The flavor is slightly of malt and is grassy. It does get
more bisquity as it warms up Mouthfeel is kind of thin,
though the 7.8% alcohol by volume (from the label) gives
it a definite tingle. Not bad, but not super either. I won't
be getting it again.

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

Apparently I still had another random Polish brew hanging around... Fair enough. It pours a clear bronze-brass topped by a short-lived finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises light green apple skin, very light white bread, and light grass. This aroma is so faint, so mellow, I can't be upset with it. The taste holds notes of musty wheat, old green apple skin, old white grapes, corn meal, and very hard water. If only this stuff was as calm on my tongue as it was in my 'strils. The body is a hefty light, with a moderate carbonation and a lightly/waterily syruoy feel. Overall, a pretty sad beer, one that really comes nowhere near impressing on any level. Not a fan.

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

Appearance: pours a golden pale yellow color with a two finger head that breaks apart quickly.

Smell: grass with some hints of lemon zest.

Taste: mild malt base with some grass, lemon zest, and mild hop bitterness. There is a bit of earthiness to this one too.

Mouthfeel: lightly crisp with a bit of dryness throughout. Light in body. Aftertaste is relatively clean.

Drinkability: so-so if you are into the style. This is easy to quaff but flavorwise it get boring after a bit.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Clear amber tinged with a little brown. Nice head of coarse foam in the plastic cup. Aroma is that classic European hop with the skunky note, though not unpleasant.

Very sweet. The hops are quite pervasive. I would be interesting to try a beer with the same level of these hops but without the sugar. It's hard to fault the carbonation, though the mouthfeel has that syrupy note with all the sugar. Malty with sweet corn flavors, with a finish that is more aromatic with hops than bitterish.

A novelty that is just barely drinkable. But on a damp night in the Polish countryside with the smell of cows and cut hay, it might be just the thing. From the 500 ml bottle bought at La Bodega Wines & Spirits in Riverside.

Piutred a pale golden color with miniscule white head. No retention, no lacing.

Smell has a pleasant fruity maltiness, but very light.

Taste is crisp and refreshing. There is a firm maltiness combined with a touch of malt.

Finish is light and refreshing with some modest taste retention.

A pleasant beer, thirst quenching, and an easy drinker.

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

Pours a bold golden yellow with slight orange tints. Develops a thin white head that dissipates quickly into a thin collar and very little laciness. Beer is very clear. Very fruity aroma, reminds me of a belgian ale. Taste is not like a malt liquor as advertised on the front (maybe I am use to Amercian malt liquor). Very fruity taste, not bad and again reminded me of a belgain ale. Body is decent, about the midpoint between thin and chewy. This was an enjoyable beer and I felt very unique. I would not go out of my way to buy this beer but if available I would take it. I do recommend trying.

Given my Polish heritage, I always like to give their brews a shot. This offering came in a 16.9 oz. bottle. The smell consisted of a great floral hop nose. The head was bleach white and about a half inch. The body was straw colored and completely transparent. Sadly, there really is not much character in the taste. There is some malted crispness but generally gives a watered down feeling. The aftertaste smooths out and leaves a small floral residue. Not a great brew....

Pours a clear straw gold with a fast falling white head. Nose is like a dirty cellar. Really. It is like unclean. Just not smooth at all. Flavor is very light with a grainy constant taste. Feel has a lot of bubble on the tongue, but it is very thin on the liquid feel. Overall this is a pretty average brew. Nothing special to write about and just another beer to try.

11.2 oz into dog-faced mug.

A: Pale straw color with the slightest bit of haziness. Decent head that withers away to no head at all, not even a collar for dog-faced mug.

S: Malt with a bit of sour-grass aroma.

T: Sour grass tang with a slight maltiness and an even slighter hop character that make the finish ultra dry.

M: Very nice for this type of beer. Medium bodied.

D: Very drinkable seems to be a nice beer for hot summer days, but it goes down very well on this cold snowy March night.

500ml can.. Colorful label depicting some polish folk in traditional Tatra Mountain garb dancing what's probably a folk song.
Pale, super clear yellow, topped with a thick white head. Great lacing, sticking to the glass in big, chunky clumps. Great head retention. Strong saaz aroma (polish lublin hops?) Very spicy and grassy, with that soapy feel. Crisp, clean pils malt. Slight lemony citrus. The flavor opens with soft, bavarian style pils malt. Very spritzy carbonation, fine bubbled, soft yet active. Relatively full bodied. Really clean, the pils malt driving straight into a modestly hopped, lemony and spicy finish. Some fresh mown grass. Snaps off with grainy, slightly sweet malt flavor. No trace of the relatively strong alcohol content. Clean, clean, clean. Slap a craft brew label on this, and it would be getting some great reviews.
