500 ml can, bought at a polish shop in Arnhem. Poured into a Guinness pint glass. ABV 5,7% Golden yellow colour with one finger of soapy white head, with low retention. No lacing of course left behind, just a couple of bubbles in the body. Typical macro lager aroma, but very faint, almost non existent. Malty taste but only a bit sweet. Aftertaste is much sweeter. Very thin and watery body, minimal carbonation. Overall less than average macro lager tasting beer, very easily forgetable.

Bottle from Toom getrankmarkt. Musty flavor to this lager, looks great in glass with nice fluffy head. Aroma is light, and taste is of paper and paste.

A: Color is clear golden. The head is light but still nice, medium-large and white. Only a little lace.

S: lots of sweet malts, but with a slight off-smell of boiled vegetables. Some bitter hops?

T: Sweet malt and some bitter hops, but the alcohol together with a marzipan rather rough taste.

M: long bitter aftertaste. Body is medium as well as the carbonation.

O: just another standard macro lager. This is rather a Euro Pale lager than a Märzen. Absolutely nothing to write home about.

This is the latest addition the unusually wide range of Polish lagers at my local off-licence, and one of the most attractive so far. But it's still not going to win any beauty pageants, not with its generic golden body and completely average white head. The nose is noticeably and aggressively alcoholic, smelling kind of like a can of cheap cider, without much nuance to speak of save a hint of sulfur and a touch of glue. The flavor is sweet and a bit thick, so if this style classification is to be trusted, then it's pretty much spot on, but that's the best that can be said for it. It tastes like some kind of lemony beer and rum concoction, and that's how it drinks. Not terrible, but far from recommendable.

Warka, ABV: 5.7%.
550 ml can, gift from a friend (bought in Poland).

A: The liquid is clear and bright amber in colour, with an average white head that leaves some lacing in the glass.

S: Grainy malt, bread, syrup and banana skids. Not much.

T: White bread, cereals, citrus, syrup, banana skids and alcohol.

M: Sticky carbonation. Both body and bitterness is small to medium.

O: As usual with the Polish standards, it doesn't benefit from the slightly higher ABV. Warka is far from the worst example, though. It's still drinkable. The taste is neither good nor bad.

A dark offering, almost amber in colour with a taste of fruitiness and almonds and a little thin. This is a full bodied brew with a minor lace as its crowning glory or lack of. Does nothing for me...but I am glad I met it...

Colour is amber, not that much head, though looks good and refreshing.

Aroma is ok, refreshing with an essence of peach.

Tastes crisp with a slightly bitter and with barley infused aftertaste. Natural, crisp and refreshing, inoffensive, nothing at all wrong with it and nothing particularly to mention either.

However it is amazing value

Clear amber orange. Pours a good yellowish head that settles to a film. Gives up a thin bit of lace.

Overall this beer comes across as almost achingly sweet. Lots of sweet malt in the nose with some hop lurking in the background. Nice touch of grain in there as well. The flavour is dominated by the malt and the whole effect is just too sugary. Carbonation is nicely tuned.

This beer has a couple of nice touches, but is just too sweet to be really enjoyable. Not enough balance, too watery.

Poured nice into the glass with a nice white head. the color was a amber color with the smell being sweet. The mouthfeel was not clean but that of a light syrup texture. The alcohol content was 7 percent but the alcohol wasn't present in the taste.The beer was lacking character along with taste. Overall I was disappointed
