A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin layer of white bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Slight aromas of malts or corn-like adjuncts are present in the nose—they are so faint that they are difficult to identify.
T: The taste has flavors of pale and pilsener malts with a light amount of bitterness and faint bits of alcohol.
M: It feels medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't especially flavorful, but I thought that the taste had a good balance between the maltiness and bitterness without being overly heavy on the palate.

Looks ok, decent head level, but a bit washing up liquidy...usually not a good sign.

Aroma is also rather faint, and a bit washing up liquidey.

Taste is hmmm not really very noticable. But I did just have an amazing IPA. Its rather a washing up liquidey taste.

Feel is very similar to washing up liquid.

Overall, Fairy liquid is better value.

Brief impression from a $1.99 500ml bottle purchased at a Key Food supermarket in Brooklyn:

APPEARANCE: Yellow-copper body. Off-white head that lasts about 5 minutes.

AROMA: Not much, really. Faint pilsner malt, I guess. As subdued and reticent as they come.

TASTE: Pilsner malt. Some grassiness. Shallow, simple, dull.

TEXTURE: Smooth, wet, overcarbonated, somewhat refreshing.

OVERALL: Drinkable inoffensive fare with plenty of potential in terms of pairing with food. There are no faults here, but there's plenty of room for improvement.

Spent a few weeks in Gdansk last year and this was my favourite of the beers I tried. Looked good (nice and golden) in the glass, easy to drink (you wouldn't know it was 6.5%) and with a good depth of flavour - sweet but with some complexity to it. I found that taste improved if it wasn't overly chilled (although it should still go in the fridge for a bit). I gave a bottle to my dad who described it as 'quite smooth and sweet' - maybe a little too much for some but I would definitely drink this again if I found it.

500ml bottle poured into half pint

L - slightly cloudy, golden, pours a 5mm thick head, average retention

S - strong honey over white bread. Noted hint of diacetyl and banana.

T - Very sweet. Some honey in the taste, sweet malts. Hops are muted. Finish is a bit too sweet.

M - quite syrupy texture, full bodied, alcohol is apparent. Moderate carbonation.

O - similar to a Hefe in style, this beer has style but the sickly sweet finish is a bit much.
