This has to be one of the most Chrystal clear beer I've ever seen. Nice clear light amber appearance.
Medium carbonation which dissipates quickly. Less than Medium body, slightly watery but still overall a nice easy to get down body.
Aroma is malty sugary meets earthy honey.theres an almost perfume floral scent mixed with grain and cereal.
Taste is sweet but not as much as the aroma suggested with some very mild earthy hops in the background to bring a little balance.
Overall I can see this not working for everyone but as the can says,it was very ok with me.

500 ml can. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy, white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of grassy hops and pale malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Pale malt and some grassy hops combine on the palate. Finish is short, not too dry. Don’t buy again brew.

500ml can into a pint glass. Best by 11/29/21, so plenty fresh.

Looks pretty good in the glass. Crystal clear golden yellow body. Small bright white head shrinks to a ring and covering, scattered lacing.

Light malty and biscuity aroma.

On tasting, clean, easy drinking, more malt than hop prescence. Light flavor.

Mouth medium, finish a little dry, slightly sweet.

Overall, decent euro pale lager. Better than most.

Clear golden pour with a sudsy white head and lacing. Smell and taste are clones: pale and skunky grains, somewhat bloated cracker malt, grassy hops, robust bread, and slight phenols. Decent carbonation for style yet still pretty thin, has a cracker malt crisp finish that is nice though. Generally an OK at best euro pale lager.

Okocim O.K. Beer has a thick, white head, a clear, gold appearance, and moderate lacing. The aroma is of yeasty bread dough. The overall flavor is a bit bland, but one detects some of that dough aspect. I guessed IBUs at 18. Okocim O.K. Beer has a low-medium body and a crisp, refreshing finish.

Not a bad European lager .... Maybe even a bit better than it's American equivalent ... Still, it's obviously a mass produced beverage and as such nothing real special here

500mL can stamped 08.21.21 poured into a tulip pint glass at fridge temp 5.6% ABV. The beer pours very bright pale straw yellow with off white head. The head recedes to a thin ring and cap. The aroma is mild with pale malt, grassy & floral hop notes and mineral. The taste is semisweet pale malt with more of the mineral & metallic note along with some grassy hops and moderate bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation and a mostly dry finish. Overall, good. I don't believe 9 months in the can at room temperature did this 4 pack any favors.

L: Light roasty color. Plenty lively. Glossy surface.

S: Tangy fermented barley. Bare minimum of hops.

T: Light. Polish Shiner Bock.

F: Very carbonated.

O: Good hot weather beer. Almost nothing to it, including no fermentation aids, like corn or rice. Completely inoffensive, can't go wrong. You could say that it's OK.

Pivo pils from Poland. Pivo jasne pelne, as it says on the can.

Pours a brilliantly clear golden yellow. Some foaming, dies down quickly. Light aroma, with a barely perceptible note of grassy hops and a touch of candied orange. There’s a slight hint of wet cardboard on the sip, distracting me from the faded citrusy orange hop character.

This can expires in 8 months, if I understand the date-stamp; I’m assuming that means it’s 4 months old at this point.

Easily one of my favorite Euro pale lagers. It features a lingering light sweetness after a very mild hop bite. I could knock a few of these back with no problem. Very good beer.

Brilliant gold. Great color. Off white head that dissipates to a single splotchy layer. Smells of wet hay. Crackers. Straw. Vines. I’ve read some reviews. I’d agree with parsley. Taste follows the smell. There was upon first sip an underlaying sweetness that tasted like a soft pretzel. There’s is plenty of hop character to notice akin to a German Pilsner level bite Moderately clean. I’ve had cleaner but this is still a clean beer. Full bodied. Full carbonation. The best polish beer I’ve had thus far. amazing actually.

This is 100% not a “polish Budweiser”. This is far better. This is better than Becks, Heineken etc....this is on par with Hofbrau level brewing. Just as good if not better than big name German pilsners. Not kidding. Try this one with an open mind and you’ll be surprised like me.

Served from 500 ml bottle in pint glass. A frothy white head falls slowly with abundant lacing. Color is pale straw. Moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma is strong with grain husks, cracker, and grassy hops. Mouthfeel is light and slightly viscous with a lingering finish. Flavor follows the aroma with grain husks, cracker, and grassy/floral hop notes. Overall: very good but nothing outstanding.

A very easy drinking Euro lager. Very clean crisp, semi-sweet, a tease of hops, malty, and refreshing. Drinks much lighter than 5.6% ABV. No off tastes, light mouthfeel and finishes dry. At $5.99 for a 4 pack of 16.9 oz cans, you can't go wrong with this beer.

Greatly disappointed it doesn't taste like a pale ale it taste like a Polish Budweiser I'm usually a big fan of Polish beers that it pours like an AAl it tastes like a top-notch Aal just disappointing for something I thought would be craft would be great if it was a cheap AAL

by BloodSoakedAleMug from New York

Look: Pours a brass colored, transparent, muted yellow with a one finger, satin white head of foam. No lacing.

Aroma: Sweet red apple, confectionery sugar, bread pudding and mild pear. Gentle backdrop of grassy, slightly dry hops.

Taste: Fruity apple and green pear upfront - followed by a generous sugary malt bill of bready, biscuity flavors; reminiscent of strudel and honey glazed puff pastry. . .even some flavors salted pretzels, pumpernickel bread and toffee. Gentle notions of parsley.

Feel: Light body with mid carbonation.

Overall: Simple and straightforward, nothing wrong with that, everything is executed flawlessly. No off flavors; malt and hop bill work hand in hand. Harmonious quite simply, there's really nothing not to like (unless you simply don't like euro lagers). In my honest opinion this deserves more than a 78/100.

(500 ml can; 19.07.19 - best by? canned on?; purchased single off shelf... poured in stages into 14 oz mug)

L: polished-clear, pale yellowish-gold liquid, barely noticeable dusting of tiny speckled sediment; tight, white sponge of foam, clinging thick at the top

S: golden bread crusty, lightly nutty malt essence, with a mild fruity bubblegum coloring; perhaps a faint whiff of spicy booze in the back... fruity-sweet edge most apparent, the rest is fairly restrained; the doughy notes eventually rise up

T: doughy malts all the way through; the finish carries a delicate spice and vaguely fruity-floral highlight... it takes a sec, but the aftertaste brings up a bit of the nuttiness from the smell; little residual alcohol or sweetness apparent; the degree of dryness takes a bit to become apparent... the malt is rather restrained, but persists long through the finish, like a sustained, low-register bass note; the most subtle of leafy, pithy bitterness blanketed atop the malt mound

F: satiny smooth, disappearing wash in its finish; plush, frothy texture; delicate beam of warmth at the back of the palate... never change it

O: perhaps a dark horse Euro pale contender? I'm most certainly getting this again... quiet but stalwart rock of malt; restrained yet firm, enough flavor to satisfy but fantastically tapered and dry... kudos to Total Wine for putting out singles (1455)
