Beautiful reddish amber colour, typical Polish Mocne aroma.

On the can it says Bogaty Smak.

Good amount of head, just the right amount of carbonation, which created a good mouth feel.

The can actually says that this beer is 14%..! Though on closer inspection and having discussed with a pretty Polish barmaid, this is actually not it's percentage. It is really 7%. Not sure of the reason for this, she did say though I did not really understand and now I have forgotten.

I am loving the taste. it is strong and quite bitter, yet still crisp, and there is lots of hops. It is let down a tiny bit with the aftertaste, which is not quite up there with Tatra Mocne. Though it is a bit lighter, and would probably be my preference on a hot day.

So overall, I like this and will buy more of. Much better than 90% of other canned European beers. So respect to whoever made this.

A 500ml can with a BB of Sept 2014, so it's rather out of date. Picked up a while back from a B&M store. I'm guessing this is the Polish version of Special Brew....

A: Poured into a straight pint glass. A bright, clear amber colour with slight floating sediment and good carbonation. Produces a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Some lacing.

S: Aroma of mildly sweet malt with hints of barley sugar, subtle caramel, faint grain, stewed leaves, a touch of yeast esters and a whiff of booze/solvent in the background. Not too bad for what it is.

T: Tastes of sweet malt with a mild finish. Notes of barley sugar, subtle caramel, husky grain, stewed leaves, faint yeast esters and a touch of harsh cardboard in the background. Slightly sweet, followed by boozy overtones and a subdued leafiness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with pleasant carbonation and good body for the style. Slightly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of barley malt, mildly acrid cardboard and faint stewed leaves.

O: So-so; OK for a mass-produced lager but not exactly a classic. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are sweet, malty and mild. Par for the course character-wise. Decent body. Goes down without complaint but pretty forgettable. No need to seek it out.

I've had many beers across the world, but this one is by far the best. There's no beer in America that can even compare or come close. Strong alcohol content and a sweet taste. Enjoyed this beverage at many establishments in Legnica Poland. Does anyone know where I can order this from in the U.S.?

500 ml can, bought in a pilish shop in Arnhem, along with others, so I guess it's ticking polish beers week. Poured into a Guinness pint glass. ABV 7%
Nice colour, deep golden yellow, with a big, soapy, white head. Average retention and very little activity in the glass.
Disappointing aroma. Some malts and a prominent feet smell, and not even your own feet which you don't mind that much or you maybe find appealing, but the feet or someone else who just came in the room and took his wet socks off. You get it.
Taste is better, but not anything special. Just lots and lots of malts, more like a wort taste. At least the alcohol is only slighty traceable, so you can drink it quite fast. It does leave a light bitterness behind, to be honest.
Thin on the body and light to medium carbonation. Some dryness on the palate.
Overall, after the initial bad smell, this is not that bad for what it offers. I am now already down to half the glass, drinking it rather quickly and I already find it better than when I opened the can. Either it gets better once it warms up, which I doubt, or the 7% ABV has gotten me.

Purchased one can from a gas station in Poland.

.5L Can served in a glass mug.

A- Clear Light Gold; not much head and dissipated relatively quickly; no lacing

S- malt, some hops and floral notes.

T- Toasted malts, touch of sweetness and herbal notes with a strong hoppy bitter aftertaste.

M- mild body, medium carbonation.

D- suprisingly high in alcohol; not a bad beer, but not great.
