Label says "Lomza Piwo Jasne Pelne", 6%.
Pours clear golden (a bit towards copper) with a small white head that lasts for a while.
Smell of sweet malts, alcohol, a weird medicinal note and some faint hops.
Taste starts with sweet malts, syrupy, with some hints of honey, corn and some biscuit. A mild fruitiness also, some apple and pear. Something spicy (or more like numbing alcohol) follows, mixed with a bad bitterness, resulting in a bad finish, unclean and off-putting.
Medium body, fizzy like mineral water. Actually refreshing, if not for the poor aftertaste.
Eh, not exactly horrible, but not too good. Really cheap tho, so it doesn't hurt to try it.

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.

The beer was provided by my neighbor, who often provides me with Polish beers. The lager was a golden straw color with a modest white head. The aroma was slightly malt and biscuity. One might even detect a little honey is one really searches. I really enjoyed the refreshing taste of this one. It begins with a very sweet malt and evolve into a dry finish. A honey sweetness is detectable. Overall, a nice import from Eastern Europe.

2.9/5 rDev -10.5%
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.

2.93/5 rDev -9.6%
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.

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.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Look - very light amber color, clear, with about half a fingers' worth or so of off-white foam that dissipates quickly..
Smell - a light pilsner type of smell, but the grains used seem to be close to, if not actually, of the cereal variety.
Taste and Mouthfeel - much like the smell, bu the hints of malts are more prominant, as is the sweeter taste. It has a more refined edge than I would have expected, especially in the back middle part of the tasting. The texture is very well balanced.
Overall - not a bad brew at all, and much better than I would have expected from the look and the smell.

Appearance has a hazy straw yellow color with a thick healthy white head and nill lace. Smell of light sweet malt and grain. Taste is nothing complex, but full with the light sweet malt, grain in the background having a mild hop bite. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. An enjoyable beer I could have again.

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

Picked up on a whim from the local liquor store for $2.50. I suppose for the price its not bad.
A - This was poured into my Duvel tulip. Poured a light straw typical macro color with a fluffy one finger white head the left no side lacing but did leave a nice little cloud.
S - Average smell here, lots of typical bready aromas and sweet malts.
T - More of the sweet malts and toasty grain flavors. Better than average.
M - Really nice carbonation here. Lots of bubbles makes this super crisp and refreshing. Great on a hot summer day.
D - Quite drinkable this stuff is. Not my favorite pale lager but this is so far my favorite beer out of Poland.
