Gold colored, clear with white head that settles out along the glass and surface of the beer. Smells of faint malt. Tastes alright light white bread, the kind that gives gluten-free folks heartburn. Light-bodied ant finishes under par.

Having tried many Polish beers, it was finally time to try this!

Looks pretty pale and lagerish, aroma is overtly malty and not inviting.

This is my least favorite Polish beer so far! Neither refreshing or flavorsome, just malty with a stale aftertaste. And this was drunk in Poland from a bottle.

Going to buy another beer to get rid of this taste!

Not bad, fairly grainy flavor with mild, non-bitter aftertaste. Went down easy. Tastes like it is the inoffensive lager big American breweries wish they could deliver. Preferable to your common American lawn-mower beers, but not my choice to "wow" any beer snobs.

Just your typical lager. Out of all the generic Polish lagers this one is my favorite but there isn't much a taste difference between them.

Purchased for $2.25 CDN at my local LCBO, Okocim tastes a lot lighter, at 7% ABV, than expected.

Okocim is a pretty straw-colour in my pils glass; the head is small but obstinate and leaves a small amount of lacing.

I am not picking up a lot of action on my nose. Perhaps I am trying it too cold. I will let it open up over the next half hour or so and see what happens.

Okocim is smooth on the palate and tastes, initially, like a pleasant and subtle blend of citrus zest and light honey. It is really rather nice. In fact, it is delicious.

The aftertaste, especially ten minutes after the pour, has a slightly bitter bite that balances nicely with the initial flavours.

This isn't my normal go-to kind of beer for mid-February. But if I like it now, when the temperature is just above 0 C, then I will probably really like it when summer rolls around (if it ever does).

Well done! I will drink Okocim again, for sure.
