3.33/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours gold with a wispy shortlived head and moderate lacing. The aroma perfumey malts with a hint of spicey hops. The taste is firmly malty with an interesting hop background. The hops are savioury and spicey and wonderfully bitter, I bet this is made with Polish Lublin hops. The mouthfeel is very fizzy with a bit of malt body.

Okocim is a pretty good brewery. This is a pretty good beer from them. It could be a little richer but its still very much worth a try.

Got the whole range of Okocim beers from a local off-license shop... can't believe my eyes... Best before date: 03 Feb. 06.

A: served in a straight pint glass, it pours a light golden to dark straw colour, with a thick and foamy white beer head full of tiny bubbles, which lasts for about a minute.
S: upfront there's a refreshing and smooth smell of grains and lager malts, lightly aromatic and red-apple peel like hop aroma (like lesser version of Saaz); besides that nothing else is particularly noticeable, nonetheless it’s soft and nice.
T & M: light flavour of bready sweetness upfront, with a mild, corn-like grainy flavour and very faint, apple-like, hoppyness on the palate. In the aftertaste a tinge of very mild bitterness and a thin-mouthfeel of sugary grains remain on the tongue—not pleasant. Overall the mouthfeel is soft and a bit too thin, even watery at times, vis-à-vis the overall weak flavour, rendering this beer overly light weight than its 5.5%abv. should’ve bring about.
D: compared with its national opponent Zywiec, this beer is way more boring and desperately in need of characters. Not recommended nor impressive.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Dark for a pilsner with a very nice, foamy head.

Smells like a very malty german pils. Strong on the grains with just a hint of white pepper in the back.

Tastes grainy upfront, grainy in the back, too, only with a little bit of the aforementioned pepper and a quite pleasant hop that leaves a very nice, dry aftertaste.

The crisp body and medium carbonation lead to a clean, very drinkable beer.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

500 ml
5,5% alc./vol.
Served at 45 degrees

Label has green base with gold lettering while the center contains a red title bar with Okocim in white and rimmed in gold. The neck shows a ram holding a frothy brew with the front legs within a small red crest that is also rimmed in gold.

Appearance – golden body; nice white head but it backs off ; large bubbles soar north early; marginal lace

Smell – grains and a touch of the spice

Taste –interestingly hoppy with trademark grains; a bit of metal and alcohol

Mouthfeel – just a touch oily, but mostly light and crisp; reasonably smooth and solid clean finish; this is where the brew shines; par for the course, it ends dry

Drinkability – a good multi-swiller if only the commercial macro fare awaits; its not all that bad

Okocim’s “Traditional Polish Taste” would be a reasonable ‘worldly’ move for the general American macro lover.

Well a clear golden beer, an average head, some retentions, nothing very much, quite normal and average in appearance. Smell is very shy, could perceived some fruity notes, but very shy.

Taste is quite average again, nothing great, a macro with all senses of the term. Hops, dry and no characters.

Clear pale gold liquid topped with a frothy white head. Fresh grainy aroma with hints of hay/grassiness and light malt sweetness, Taste is crisp hoppiness and light malt...more hop than malt, quite nice. Finishes clean and bitter, quite the drinkable lager, a nice hoppy Pils.
