Used to really like this in the past, then changed my mind...anyway after a while and more experience, I am reviewing again!

The bottle is quite vintage looking, kind of cool.

Beautiful reddish amber colour, typical Polish Mocne aroma, maybe lacking a bit in the hops.

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

Flavour is kind of unique actually...definitely best ice cold. Many European stronger beers (aside from Belgian ones) are lower quality and marketed for homeless people and alcoholics and myself. This however has a complex maltiness and bitterness balance, mostly via the grain as opposed to hops. This would be great if only they added more hops!. Anyway, it still has a subtle czech style hops happening, but it is slightly too subtle. Still, it's a very unique and interesting beer, and it's stronger than all the silly pilsners everywhere, which all taste the same.

I am loving the taste. it is strong and quite bitter, yet still crisp, and there is some 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 European beers that are not IPA's. 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A 500ml can with a BB of Sept 2014, so it's rather out of date.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.
