The beer is a clear golden color with good carbonation and a nice head. The beer smelled sweet and bready with a hint of pumpkin or Christmas spices. The taste follows the nose very well. Sweet with a slight spice. It really reminds me of a darker or holiday beer. The beer is medium bodied and easy to drink.

A- Never seen/heard of this before so thought I better try it out! Pours with a thick creamy off white head that retains quite brilliantly.....settling down into a dense foamy thick head over this medium colored amber brew. It is very clear overall and the carbonation is reasonably modest and the lacing is quite nice....several even ringed layers stick to the side of my glass. Well looking Lager!

S- Well this has an incredibly strong malty bread aroma.....like Marmite almost! There are underlying sweet yeast, caramel/toffee/molasses, some chocolate wafer and a finish that is sticky and lingers on the nose. I don't dislike it....just wasn't expecting it!

T- The flavors follow suit to the aforementioned aromas, with huge bready yeast, plenty of unfermented barley malt, big time caramel and/or toffee stickiness, hints of milky chocolate, vanilla creme filling and maybe some mocha nuances. This is just a malt bomb on the palate....Marmite affiliations go by the wayside....this is super creamy and rich....almost raisin like in spots....lingers on the palate too!

M/O- Smooth velvety carbonation with wee tight bubbles! Flows so nicely on the palate, I swear this is more like an after dinner dessert.....the alcohol is superbly well hidden and while this is richly flavored, I find it to be quite delectable and social....wouldn't mind having more than one of these in a sitting. I'm glad I decided to try this one and would definitely purchase again....a fine Polish gem!

Thick white head that disappears fast. The beer is dark golden coloured. The aroma is sickly sweet and kind of grainy. The taste is the same. The finish is kind of dry and flat.

Didn’t really enjoy this beer. I think it’s OK, just not my style.

I found this at my local Canals. A 500 ml bottle for a buck eighty ain't bad. Surprisingly neither was this beer. Poured a deep amber color with a sudsy ,but gone like a ghost head and very little lacing. Bready and slightly caramel aroma. Taste was malty with a mild Mocha after taste. The 6.5% alcohol was definitely present. You know, although this is a beer from Poland , it reminded me of some Scottish ales I've had somewhere in my misspent youth. All in all i'd recommend this. So, there!!

Pours clear gold in color with minimal head. Taste is caramel and grain. Light bodied, sweet and medium carbonation. Tasty lager. Nice and malty. Will look to get this again.

I don't know how to technically describe this beer, but for me, it is like a Guiness except it doesn't have that initial sour taste. I really love Warka, but because the alcohol is so high, I usually only drink one. I buy it by the case and it comes in packs of 4, big cans, like 16 or 18 oz. I usually order a case, because it takes a month to get. One of my favorite beers for sure.

8/11/17 (Chicago) - 500 ML can poured into flute glass. Golden orange pour, nominal white head, carbonation and lacing. Strong grain and hops aroma. Sweet malt taste with a hint of fruit. Light mouth feel, very easy drinking. Overall OK offering.

Poured from 500ml bottle into pint glass. Best by date of August 2017.

Amber in color, crystal clear with a whispy white head that disappeared fairy quickly. Toasted grain aroma. Sweet malty flavor with hints of caramel, cooked grain balanced by a slight herbal hop note. Crisp, dry mouthfeel.

Purchased for $1.75. Really good value for the quality. A nice euro strong lager.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a medium coppery amber with a thin off-white head that dissipates to sparse patches, but with light lacing. Aroma of dark malt, mild cocoa, hint of caramel. Flavor is caramel and dark malt, mild cocoa and hints of dark fruit. Finishes malty with slight hop bitterness. Medium bodied with slight creaminess. I did not have high expectations for this, but ended up enjoying it just fine. A nice malt body that is close to a German dunkel in flavors, but more subdued. Slightly sweet, with interesting suggestions of cocoa and fruit. Although mild in flavor, plenty here to enjoy. Given a choice of any "Euro" style, this would be a welcome choice.

Strikes me as a medium-dark lager. This was better than OK... but then, I prefer malts. And this uses malts well enough. Half-recommended.
