Bought this to try it out whilst on the hunt for Kamenitza, really nice beer.

Smart little bottle with a traditional label. Typical golden colour, pours like any other pils, the head is prominent at first but vanishes quickly, the smell is wonderfully fresh, with hints of honey and a little apple. Feel is smooth and fresh, light and easy goes down well. The after taste is mild and ever so slightly bitter but nice and malty. Great beer =) cheeky 6% er

500ml can. 10.04.15. Pours a pale gold colour. Very tall, frothy head which quickly disappeared and left absolutely no lacing. Aroma of green apples, grass and honey. Light/medium sweetness and light bitterness in the finish. Light body, thin texture. Not offensive but nothing special.

Can for $2 from New Seasons.

Pouring a clear golden yellow with a dense, white head with decent retention and minimal lacing, this looks solid. The nose opens with a big, dusty, lemony hop character, mildly doughy, and fairly clean. Honey and a mild buttery note are present, appropriately so. The palate opens crisp, moderately hoppy with lemon, earth, dust, wet twigs and a mild resiny bitterness. The mid palate is distressingly watery but as this beer warms up and the carbonation dies off, the doughy and mildly honey like malt character are noticeable. Drying on the finish with a mild bitterness and a perceptible alcohol character, this beer is medium light in body, highly carbonated and decent on the palate. Decent stuff.

I'm not much of a lager drinker these days but I decided to try something new and this strong, Polish beer caught my eye.

The appearance is fairly typical for a lager: golden honey with a foamy head that disappears quickly. The aroma is sweet and malty, with hints of bread and honey and no obvious hoppiness.

The flavour is reasonably good. A little sweet for my tastes, but nice and malty with hints of honey, like the aroma. The mouthfeel is rather thin, but perhaps no more than one would expect for a typical European lager. I have to admit, I'd never guess it was 6%! Very smooth.

If you're a fan of lager I definitely recommend it. It's a decent beer. Not one that I'd go out of my way for personally, but better than many more well known brews.
