3.05/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Since the previous review the appearance of the can has changed. The dude with the hat now looks a bit more to his left (towards the viewer) and the mostly yellow around the oval label is now black. What's more important, ABV is now 7.0 %. Still, this is a nice beer. It pours a nice golden yellow with a quickly receding head. Smell has some bitterness and sweets in it, as well as a pronounced alcohol, despite the not too high ABV. Taste follows the smell, again the sweet bitterness and clearly present alcohol. My Mom, who brought it from Poland, said that she was warned to check the correct variety. This is the right one! So if you're in Poland this is an excellent beer to have, but don't go through the trouble of importing it.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

500ml Can: BBD 9th Dec 13, poured into a UK pint sleeve at my parents house on 24th Oct 13.

As you'd expect, it poured a clear golden colour and had a snow white head (that faded fast, also as you'd expect from a Euro lager/pilsner). The can is now black by the way, and the ABV is down to 7.0 from the 7.8 stated currently on BA.

Nothing sets this apart from the mass of similar brews around the world, it had a mini-corn like aroma with some metallic notes and tasted like a strong lager/pilsner with the alcohol showing more as it warmed a little.

Bog standard in every aspect: hope my Dad doesn't get anymore. It'll only give him headaches.

2.6/5  rDev -17.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

I'm getting tired of these non-malt lickah types being labelled as such (stupid laws and whatnot...at least, I think that's the reason, right...?). Oh well. This stuff pours a clear golden straw topped by over a finger of white foam. The nose comprises corn syrup, white bread, sweet honey, light grass, and the vague sense of artificial berries. The taste holds notes of overly sweet corn syrup, booze, hard water, light metal, grass, sweet flowers, and sweet caramel. Just a sweet, boozy mess, frankly. The body is a straight medium, with a moderate carbonation and a sorta syrupy feel. Overall, nothing I really wanna ever have again. I've had worse, but I also have nothing truly positive to say about it, either.

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

golden yellow. A big fizzy white head was initially present but faded down to reveal nothing more then a thin layer of film like lace on the top. Lots of visible carbonation came streaming up from the bottom of the glass, and it left a tiny bit of residual lace on the sides of the glass.

The smell was light, nice grain and yeasty bread like smell mixed in with some kinda light fruit, maybe some banana, and a touch of alcohol, but it was pretty standard lager. The taste was like a really strong budweiser. It tasted like your standard fare macro lager, buch just stronger. Typical grain adn yeast, maybe some corn in the flavor. A touch of alcohol.

A beer of mediocre proportions. It ticks a few of the essential boxes, in that it carbonated , drinkable, beery in taste and smells not unpleasantly , but beyond that there is not to much to say .
It hides the higher ABV well , which for me is a bonus , however it did nothing to me to distinguish it from the pack of Euro Lagers ( strong or otherwise ) that are available

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

Can from a grocery store in Lublin. From notes.

A - Poured a medium/dark gold. Medium carbonation. One finger eggshell head down to a film. No lacing.

S - Sweet grainy malt. Lacks a strong corny aroma. Not great smelling or complex. No hops.

T - Grainy. Honey. A little corny sweetness.

M - Mild carbonation and a medium body with lingering sweetness.

O/D - Doesn't taste bad like many of the style. That said it doesn't taste good. Quite mild and bland. Easy to dirnk but why would you want to?

The beer was in a .5l bottle with a date of 7/10, despite this it was good! Picked up single bottle at a Polish Deli in E. Windsor, CT. Beer had a good flavor, and a nice after taste. Grain and grass hints. Did not taste like hi proof Malt Liquor. Bet it would rock drinking this on tap in Warsaw. Would buy again.

3.15/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured bright gold colour and crystal clear. Lively head of pure white, that dissipated fairly quickly. Aroma very light and laid back, grassy and slightly sweet malts. Texture is fairly light considering its 7%, flavour more of sweetish malts - but not cloyingly so, little hop presence if any at all. No nasty surprises or vices, but on the other hand nothing to really get excited about - pleasant enough (especially at the price in UK Polish shops!!) would have it again, but neither would I search it out. Worth trying at the price, but nothing to shout about.

This bottle does not read mocne on it, its labeled "malt liquor" and it reads 7.0 abv. Poured from a 16.9 ounce bottle into a pint glass. I dont have a pilsenser glass atm.

A- Pours a dark golden-yellow with a thin white head.

S- Sweet malts with metallic undertones.

T- Mostly sweet malts with faint hops bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden, does not seem like a 7.0 at all.

M- Thin and well carbonated.

D- I guess I can drink a few pints of this, Im trying to as I type.

Assuming that I am reviewing the correct beer, its better than your average macro American lager, and its a good price. An ok beer, definitely nothing special. If you want a decent, strong reasonably priced and simple beer, this is not bad.

Compared to the previous power is clearly superior (especially in terms of ABV) but oddly enough, alcohol is less felt in the nose, which the drink easier to drink. We find this rather ethereal flavor in aftertaste, with some rather dry herbs. The nose is a Czech Pilsener, mixing both the side of grassy hops and side light, sweet malt, but more powerful.

500ml can served into a pint glass.

I really liked the colour of the beer. The gold is very pleasant on the eye. Let down by the head retentition, which fades to absolutely nothing.

Smell wise, similar to other EPL's. A slight sweetness and a twang of the alcohol. Nothing to write home about.

Sweet taste, mainly of malts. There's slight confusion about midway through the moutful, as the hops sort of kick in, and by the end it is quite jumbled and slightly unpleasant. Almost no aftertaste to note.

Very light bodied. Like most Polish strong lagers, you really don't feel like you're drinking a 7% lager.

It's drinkable, don't get me wrong. But there's two or three EPL's from Poland that I would put first before this beer.

500 ml bottle, best before 07.20.2010:

Pours golden yellow with a thin head that soon disappears to a small vanishing patch. Eventually no head and no lacing.

The smell is of mild grain, a touch of husk and a subtle floral touch.

The taste is of mild sweetness with some grain and cereal. Slight touch of alcohol shows through the general thinness. There is a mild floral dry touch balancing the mild sweetness in the finish. All-in-all, a rather bland, though inoffensive taste.

Light-bodied with a slight kick. It has medium carbonation for the style.

All-in-all, pretty much a "run-of-the-mill", average EPL,with less "Euro skunk" and with a bit more strength.

Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a rich golden color with a small head. Smell is mild, some malts. Taste is sweet, malts with a touch of hops, pretty tasty. Feels light in the mouth and has good drinkability. Overall this makes for a good quality beer.

.5L emptied into a Pokal.

A: Pours light copper with a creamy 1-finger white head which receeds quickly to a thin ring. No lace.

S: Sourdough, malt, grassy hops, slight booze aroma, citrus notes.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

T: Sweet bready malt, spicy hops. Some acrid booze at the back. Dry finish with a hoppy aftertaste that lingers for just a bit.

D: Surprisingly smooth for such a high ABV. This almost goes down too quickly. Nicely balanced. Glad I found this in one of the local Polish shops.

Needed a beer to go with dinner..Never tried this one. SOLD!

Pours a rich looking clear gold with the requisite quickly vanishing head. Spotty lacing from the remaining ring.

Smells of grainy malt and not much else..Head cold, doncha know.

Taste was comprised of more grainy malt along with bread/biscuit notes. Clean slightly biting finish from the lively carbonation. Mouthfeel is just north of thin.

Good "utility" brew. Ideal for replacing macros when gathering with friends for a football game. It WILL sock you in the jaw a little quicker than the average macro too!
