0.33l bottle. Poured into lager glass. 2-finger white head, some laces. Bland and meaningless macrocrap. Grainy smell, watery taste, sense of being deceived. Don't even try this godless nectar.

500 ml can served cold into a pint glass. Cost was about $2.20 CDN and purchased at. The LCBO.

Appearance - clear pale golden straw color. One finger of white head with minimal retention and fewer than average bubbles.

Smell - quite grainy, a touch skunked and a bit metallic. Works alright, but not great.

Taste - similar to the nose, grains dominate, but the metallic ness doesn't come through. Inoffensive. Mild sweetness throughout. Tastes better than it smells.

Mouthfeel - lower than average carbonation and a bit flat. Light body and moist finish.

Overall - serviceable but indistinguishable pale lager. Ok, but non-descript overall.

This was one of my favorite beers when I lived in Poland, usually in a can or a bottle, but occasionally on tap. I think this beer is named after a national folk hero or something but I might be misremembering it.

Pours a basic pale, almost ginger ale color with a foamy white head and carbonation to spare. The nose is grainy but without much character or complexity. The taste is crisp and reasonably clean and refreshing but again, not terribly dense or inquisitive.

This this is basic Polish lager, which is what everyone drinks when they're not drinking vodka.

I had a bottle. Light gold in color, slightly bubbly, thick head that dissipates quickly with no lace. Pilsner esque scent to it, but a little sour.

It's just a weak beer. It is too sour, kind of like a Pilsner gone kind of wrong. There isn't anything that stands out and it leaves a bad aftertaste. Not a fan.

reviewed this beer over a year ago woner why the posting did not take??

1/2 liter can.

Pour puts a golden bright lager in the flute...decent 2 finger white frothy cap, fair retention, good lacing. Well carbonated. Aroma of herbal-citrus bouquet under bready malts ( very decent aroma). Medium bodied, soft mineral mouth feel...meaty pale malt backbone.

Starts a tad sharp from the carbonation ( too sparkling/spritzy) but once past that you can chew into the bready Moravian malts...then the balance from both saaz and Lublin hopping comes in and you get a nice bread and lemon decernment under a more creamy mouth feel. Finishes crisp and clean with the bittering dropping right off to leave a light bready-biscuity taste and virtually no sweetness. The 5.2 ABV makes this a very drinkable and satisfying beer.

This is an above average Polish lager and I am surprised I like it as well, if not more so, than Okocim Zagloba.

Appearance - Pours a golden straw yellow with about a finger width of white bubbly head. Bubbles are very present and there is excellent clarity.

Smell - Mellow apples, golden raisins, sweet malts.

Taste - Hint of the apples comes through in the taste. No real hoppiness or bitterness. Slightly bready flavours. Not overly sweet as the smell would suggest.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very refreshing.

Overall - An easy drinking lager from Lech. Nothing super spectacular with the flavours going on, but a very refreshing brew for a hot day. I always like to come back to my roots with Polish beers and this is one of the ones I return to.

I got this beer in a can from my brother in law. Today was a nice day in Holland and the sun made me decide to taste this one. Poured in a dutch beerglass the beer looks OK. Very little carbonation and a nice white head.

Soft taste with some citrus and a bit of caramel.

It is a good lager beer if you are thirsty, no more and no less. Balanced mouthfeel and dito drinkability.

500ml bottle lovingly brought back from Krosno, Poland by my Mom. Thanks Mom!
Crystal clear pale gold. A large bubble floats up now and then. Initially, the head was puffy and white, settling down into a thin collar after a couple sips. Soapy, saazy hop aroma. Some grassy notes, and crispy, crackly pils malt. The flavor is much like any continental lager, with perhaps a more pronounced floral fruitiness. A trace of apple and freshly mown grass, sitting atop crisply grainy pils malt. Lagery smooth, moving quickly into a moderately hopped, floral and soapy finish. Feels softer, less dry than your average euro lager, maybe more in the bohemian style. Still has that nice snap-off in the finish. An easy drinker after a long day.

Had this one out of a green .3L bottle into a glass while I was in Poland. It is pronounced more like "leck" but with a guttural ending like the ending in loch (loch ness monster), don't pronounce it "letch". I was told this is one of the more popular lagers here although Tyskie, Zywiec, and Okocim seem to have more of the market share. Pours a bright yellow color, clear as glass. Bubbly head forms and fades in a few seconds. Smells of some sweet grain and water. Taste is pretty clean, a little on the sweet side. Nothing really to write home about. When warm it has an odd aftertaste that isn't as pleasant, a bit of skunk from the green bottle. Tastes a bit like old Heinekin. Overall a mediocre beer, I would definitely take Zywiec over this one, although that is like saying you'd drink a Budweiser over Bud Light.
