3.53/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Found this at a packy type place...don't see it around much.

Pours a cloudy orange, a swirl of the bottle releases some hazy sediment.
Two fingers of foam reduce to a thin film with some lacing on the glass.

Smell is nondescript and inoffensive, a mild grain smell.
Taste is standard EPL, a touch of sweet honey and crackery. Aftertaste has a tiny herbal quality, hard to tell if it's hops. Almost like the dry stick of bubblegum from a pack of baseball cards.

Good mouthfeel, not too thin. This unfiltered lager tends to be smooth and easy drinking.

Unfiltered goldenrod topped by an acceptable, pale yellow cap that is firm enough and sturdy enough to fall at a rate of less than one finger per minute. It looks like styrofoam where head meets glass. Now that I look more closely, the upper surface looks like melted syrofoam as well. A lack of tackiness results in a lack of lace. Not much to fault, not much to praise. Will that be a recurring theme?

The nose is decent (keeping style in mind, of course). It isn't much different from the hordes of interchangeable, indistinguishable EPLs, but it gets a faint tip of the hat for smelling fresh rather than stale. There might be more hops than is typical, but I don't feel comfortable making that call until I can wrap my taste buds around it. Here goes...

Average. Middle of the road. Fair to middlin'. So-so. Mediocre. Need I go on? It's undermalted according to my preference, but probably manages to hang onto one of the bottom rungs of the style ladder. Watery grain with very few ancillary flavors. Not sweet, not bitter, just... wet.

The nose led me astray where hops are concerned. The beer isn't all that hoppy, and as I take another few deep inhales, I'm not sure how I ever entertained that notion. The mouthfeel is irredeemably light and balances on the razor's edge of wateriness. N Full is n(ot) full, not by a long shot. A decent amount of carbonation would have helped the mouthfeel, but it falls short of even that low standard.

N Full isn't the worst of the Browar Namyslow beers that I've had, but neither is it the best. In the end, I found more to fault than I did to praise. If you're in the mood for a Euro pale lager (is anyone? ever? other than a Euro?) you could do better than this without trying too hard.

2.35/5  rDev -28.6%

500ml bottle with a label that looks like it belongs on a 40oz bottle. This pours out of the bottle with a funky, cooked vegatable aroma, but in the glass it mellows to a corn and grain-like smell. The head disappeared on this surprisingly fast and left a filmy layer. The body had a honey-like appearance. It was hazy, with a still cider look. The taste is a little sweet and synthetic on the tongue. A tart, citrusy (not like a west coast IPA) bite annoys the mouth. The maltiness body holds its presence, but is lost by the dryness and acidic mouthfeel. This beer is nothing more than a one-time try. Plenty of other beers to spend money on.

Hazy gold color, very hazy for the style, not much of a head, just a layer of tiny foam across the top of the beer. Smell is predictably grassy and slightly skunky, not deviating from the norm for the style. Taste malty, yes, but fairly diluted and underpowered. Hides the 6.2% ABV well. Not a bad tasting beer, pretty good for the style. Light fruitiness works well with the grassy malts. One of the better euro pales I have had.

N Full: well that wasn't easy to find. From a big thick brown half liter bottle (typical for an eastern european lager)>

Big, pure white rocky head with some staying power. The color is a slight hazy gold, more yellow than amber.

Aroma is a standard euro lager aroma. A little bit like toast. The taste is similar. It has a standard Polish lager flavor, although (to be frank) this one seems a little tastier than most. It has a malt flavor, barely toast, and its got a bit of skunk as well. Overall, though this beer is not bad at all. It does have a slick mouthfeel.

From one of Poland's smaller breweries comes "Beer n full", with the "n" obviously standing for the name of the brewery, Namyslow, and the "full" meaning a larger beer with an ABV of 6.2%. It pours a crystal clear yellowish gold with a foamy one-fingered head that dissipates shortly thereafter. The aroma is softly grainy and lightly floral. The body is full with a gentle carbonation that leaves it gently crisp and then lightly creamy, but always smooth across the palate. It's an impressive mouthfeel although it seems as if the carbonation could do more to enhance it whether it be creamier or crisper - but as it is, it's simply firm but somewhat dull. The flavor is mainly of a fairly rich and straight-forward golden malt that's sweetly grainy, somewhat bready, and laced with mild hop flavor and an understated bitterness. It finishes lightly dry with a residual grainy maltiness. The somewhat elevated level of alcohol (6.2%ABV) is completely hidden. Overall, a decent malty golden strong lager that's very clean but offers limited character.
