500 ml can, bought in a polish shop, in Arnhem. This is different than the Warka Strong. Poured itno my Guinness pint glass. ABV 6.5 %.

Deep orange copper colour, with two fingers of white, froathy head that disappears quickly. No lacing of course and also no activity in the glass.
Smell is not bad, some malts and a bit of alcohol, although it's only 6.5%.
Huh? Weird taste, but not in a bad way. Lightly roasted malts and a faint hazelnut chocolate/coffee flavour. I haven't tasted a strong euro lager like that before. In any case not the malty, stale bread taste I am used to getting from the style.
Medim thin body and average carbonation. Fairly dry and numb feeling on the palate.
Overall, I was expecting a much stronger beer when I saw the label (I didn't check at the shop) with the usual malty, old bread flavour, plus an alcohol sting but this turned out to be quite good. If I ever go back for more beer at that shop, it will be for this one.

Agree with all the other 3.5 reviews posted. Only thing I can add is there's a bit of sweetness from the residual sugars that makes this ESL particularly tolerable.

500ml Bottle from a new Polish shop in my area (we now have three that I know of).

Poured into a 0.2 litre Veltins Pilsner badged stemmed tulip three times on 14 Jul 2013, some two weeks before it's best before date.

Good golden hue to the clear and bright body, clean looking with a full white crown on each pour.

The nose was weak: some perfume type floral smell with hints of bready malts, but not a lot of anything really.

The taste was semi-sweet and fairly refreshing even though there is very little bitterness in the brew: I almost enjoyed it!

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark gold color, with a short white head that fades quickly and leaves a decent lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains lager yeast, caramelized malts, honey and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of honey and caramel. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and there’s a decent hops presence that provides some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sweet.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, considering the style it’s a pretty solid beer to drink for a while.

This is a strong flavoured, malty lager. It has a mild aroma of grain and barley malt. The taste is somewhat sweet annd nutty. It is similar to standard 5.5-6% Polish lagers but with a bit more malt. There's not an awful lot going on here but Warka Strong is fairly tasty and satisfying for lager fans and very cheap. An OK and enjoyable beer.

500ml bottle. 07.11.14. Pours a pale/deep gold colour with a tall, thinly packed head which quickly disappeared leaving a hint of lace. Gentle aroma of sweet malt and corn. Lightly sweet taste with only a suggestion of bitterness. Slight effervescent fizz on the tongue, silky smooth texture and a lingering sweetness in the finish. Everything is so understated in this drop that it is quite surprising that it comes in at 6.5% abv. Perilously drinkable.

Drank it out of a cold 500ml glass bottle. This ESL has amazing sweet, fruity and malty flavors in it. I also tasted a Cognac flavor. Its very drinkable and refreshing for a strong lager. Highly recommend this underrated brew from Poland!
