A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carboantion. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving a patch of large bubbles around the edge of the glass and a thin film covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of bready hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has a light to moderate amount of bitterness from the hops—which seem to be slightly grassy and spicy—and has underlying hints of bready malts.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has a good amount of bitterness considering it's strength, without being overpowered by malty or hoppy flavors. It would pair well with a meal.

Pours slightly hazy, gold in color with ¼ inch head. Taste is cereal, bread, grain, and alcohol. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, and slightly bitter. Makes for a slightly above average Polish lager. Will most likely not revisit, but refreshing.

A 500ml bottle (brown glass, pry-off crown cap) ran me $1.99 USD at a grocer in Brooklyn.

5.60% ABV.

APPEARANCE: Off-white ~5-6cm head. Clear pale copper body. Clean, with no visible yeast/lees within.

AROMA: Slightly funky, making me wonder if this is an old bottle. Lemon, some tartness, pilsner malt, slightly doughy yeast, creamed wheat, leavened bread.

Aromatic intensity is average.

TASTE & TEXTURE: Surprisingly balanced, actually. A soft pilsner malt backbone isn't what I expected, but it's there, playing against the slight crispness of the mouthfeel. Pale malts, 2-row barley, doughy yeast. A little bready, slightly grassy...it's not dialed in but there's sufficient flavour here to exceed my (low) expectations.

No off-flavours. Decent depth of flavour. Above average intensity and duration of flavour.

Smooth, wet, medium-bodied, refreshing. Could be softer, lighter, and creamier to good effect.

OVERALL: It's inoffensive budget fare that drinks easily and would pair well with pizza. A more than competent take on the generic European pale lager style/category that delivers in terms of high drinkability and neutral but favorable taste. I'd entertain the idea of a second purchase, even as an import. Its overcarbonation is its biggest flaw, but that's consistent with most budget beers in the category.

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grains, malts, some sweetness. Taste is grains, light malts and hops, some hints of a metallic flavor. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

Tastes not too good, nothing interesting in the flavour, very poor lager, which doesn't deserve the name of Copernicus

Served in a pilsner glass.

A: Pours a golden honey color with a 1/2 inch white head that dissipates really fasts, leaving hardly any lacing.

S: Smells of yeast, wheat, honey, bananas, grains

T: Tastes fairly sweet, yeast, wheat, grains, bananas, honey, a bit syrupy, bit of hops at the end

M: A light bodied beer with good amounts of carbonation, kind of syrupy but still fairly good

O: Overall this is not too bad compared to the other Polish pale lagers I've had. Not too bad but a little bit funky. Not really too original, I would still opt for this over the mainstream american adjunct crap but still, doesn't say too much.

A - Cloudy dark straw w/ a 1.5 finger head that dissipated without lace. Some sediment.

S - Barley and sweet caramel

T - Perfect balance between sweet and bitter. Finishes with a nice linger. Lacks the cripness I usually associate with a pilsner. Almost to the point of doubting the accuracy for the style. Regardless, it is good... very good! Somewhat hoppy too for a pills. Like a sweet pale ale.

M - Carb is adequate and leaning toward creamy. Medium body.

O - Even though it may not be true to style I will be trying it again before the summer is through.
