look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.25

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

A big thanks to the commander of canned beers, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 16.9 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, a touch of sweetness. Taste is grains, malts, some hints of corn, light and refreshing. Feels medium/light in the mouth and overall a decent beer, but a bit milder than other Polish lagers I have tried.

Warka has a thin-to-medium, white head, a fairly good amount of lacing left behind, and a clear, golden appearance. Aroma is of sweet honey and bread crust, and the flavor is of the same, with low-level, grassy bitterness and German bread. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Warka finishes crisp and refreshing.

Best before: 6/24/15. 5.5% ABV per the label.

Pours a clear light yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, corn flake, caramel, and earth aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, caramel, flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with solid malt and caramel aspects that make it one of the better Euro lagers I have had in a while.

Serving type: can.

500ml bottle with a BB date of May 2015.
A light bodied, light tasting lager. The main virtue is a lack of problems. This is clean and not skunky, with decent albeit weak flavor.

Typical pale lager appearance. Average head and lacing. Not great but ok.
500ml can. 5.5% alcohol - no longer 5.7% as it used to be.

Smell is typical euro pale lager graininess. Quite inviting and strong enough to make you feel good about taking the first swig.

The taste is mild. A little bit of malt sweetness and some generic hop bitterness in the finish. No herbal or grassy hop flavours.

Overall a pleasant a drinkable lager with no off notes. A good lager bite in the taste and a well balanced finish.

This is Poland's version of a pale lager, similar to Stella or Harp, etc. It's pretty decent, and can be a nice complement to what is usually pretty heavy food. If I'm at a Polish place, I'd get this one, and maybe try others from this brewery as well.
