In honor of Turkey Beer Day, I'm electing this one as I'm not sure how good a Polish Lager can be (no disrespect to Polish folk)

It pours a blonde straw color with 100% transparency. The head starts off rocky and recedes quickly but always builds up nicely when it's topped off. Minimal lace.

Not much for aroma. Corn and straw, that's about it. Difficult to pick up.

Roasted barley, straw, and cereal grains. It finishes with a slight metallic note that rivals Steel Reserve. Some ugly fruit loop sweetness also arrives, making this more into a malt liquor.

It's crisp as expected, but slightly pasty and chalky, with not much else redeeming it.

My overall thoughts : I'd generously pass on this beer next time I saw it. If it's not ice cold, it's a Hurricane without the alcohol. Barf. Way less than OK. Sorry guys.

Sample on draft at the 2015 EPCOT Food and Wine Festival. Color is a very bright and clear amber. The taste is nice balance of malt and hops with some bread like flavors on the finish. Very good mouth feel with a moderate carbonation level. Overall this is a decent enough Euro Lager. I would like to try it sometime in a proper serving glass and I am not sure plastic is the best vessel. This is certainly worth a try.

A: crystal clear; medium gold in color; 1 finger rocky head that receded to a wispy cap; nice lacing;

S: pilsner malt, bread, a little spice;

T: bland; what's there is pilsner malt and bread, but it fades quickly; perhaps a little corn at mid-palate; finish has almost no flavor or bitterness;

M: light to medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: inoffensive, but not memorable; easy to drink on a hot day;

This surprised me. Picked up a couple pints because they were on sale. For a lager it had some complexity. nice carbonation.

Easily the best Lager I've had (excluding craft). Poured from a can into a small pilsner glass.
L - Light Golden, few bubbles just a light column bubbling to the surface. Head dissipated quickly.
S - Not much to excite the nose as with most lagers. Smells lightly hoppy with slight sourdough starter smell to me (I'm a Baker)
T - Delightful, clean, refreshing, slightly bitter. Doesn't leave a strong taste in the mouth or a sour taste in the throat. Balanced and doesn't taste as strong as the ABV.
F - Light carbonation, doesn't leave one feeling bloated or full.
O - Best Lager I've tried as far as my memory goes.

Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours pale golden color with a big billowy white head. The head has a good level of retention, fading over time to leave a moderate sum of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a sweet and bready smell with the sweet being mainly a mix of a caramel and corn aroma. Along with these smells comes some lighter notes of yeast and grass.

Taste – The taste begins with a rather light bready taste mixed with a moderate sum of a corn syrupy sweet flavor. As the taste advances, more and more corn flavors come to the tongue with a little bit of a grassy and papery flavor working their way in as well. These flavors take the taste to its end where they leave a somewhat unpleasant mix of flavors to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin with a carbonation level that is rather high. For the somewhat off flavors this is probably the best feel for the brew as it minimizes that flavors the best it can.

Overall- Not the greatest beer out there that is for sure. Pretty much a subpar malt in my opinion, with much better malts out there. I wouldn’t recommend this one.

Really good Euro lager. I like the dry finish its really refreshing. Touch of hops, barley malts, and corn are present. I get Skunk kind of like Moosehead. Cheers!

It's OK! I'm a beer rating genius aren't I? Seriously though it's a decent but not exceptional euro lager. I could still drink this one any day/ anytime.
