Pretty average lager beer. Pours a clear gold color with better than average head retention on a frothy white head. Some patchy lacing. Aroma is like an adjunct lager, mild and a bit vegetable like. The taste is better, mainly because the maltiness comes through better in the flavor than the aroma. There is a little grassy hops here as well. Mouthfeel is mild, a little crispness, but primarily an average lager.

Initial Look and Smell is an adjunct lager, like maybe as little as 50% barley. Taste calms down my suspicions as the fuller barley malt comes through sweetly, yet balanced by some drying hops in the finish.

I only bought this because Lomza Export is listed on the "1001." Yet the reviewer made some interesting points: Browar Lomza was founded under communism because it has a great source for fresh water. Of course it was sold, but the private owners have kept to the whole green, regionalism milieu. While a well put-together beer, it seems to have a severe recipe and its history helps explain this.

500 ml bottle into lager glass, bottled on 12/17/20196. Pours crystal clear medium golden/yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, white bread dough, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bready pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, white bread dough, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, white bread dough, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of bready pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.7%. Overall this is a nice Dortmunder lager. All around nice robustness and balance of bready pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Clean and flavorful malts, with a nice amount of hop presence. This needs a bit more hops and bitterness; but is a nicely enjoyable offering, and good style example.

66ml Bottle from Zabka supermarket, Warsaw (3.49 PLN):
A better beer than I'd been expecting going in, but in truth that is only half the story since I definitely wasn't expecting much from this one & the fact it came in a 660ml bottle didn't help matters. Appearance wise the beer got off to a poor start but things picked up a little with the nose & taste at least without really excelling. It remained quite an easy one to drink with a nice balance that made it better than quite a few other Polish beers I've tried but I'm still not sure I'd put it in the 1001 beers book to be honest with you.

Very good lager from Poland. Aroma is straight cereal, appearance is normal with thick, but fast fading head. Taste is a bit better, mostly cereal but smooth and flavorful. One of the better lagers I’ve tried.

500ml bottle. Bottle labelled as Amber Pils (and also as "bitter aromatic"). Pours a straw colour with a towering, frothy white head which settled reasonably and left only a trace of lacing. Very gentle aroma malt, hay and hops. Light sweetness and bitterness. Light to medium body with some fizz. Long gently bitter finish. Someone should have a word to their marketers because this doesn't fit the Pils mould nor is it particularly bitter or aromatic. That said it's very light, inoffensive but still quite drinkable.

Now is being brewed by Van Pur.
Pours clear golden with decent white head, good retention, some laces. Smell of grain, dough, slightly herbal, slightly metallic. Taste is unbalanced, skunky, grain, mineral, chalk, cardboard, undefined bitterness. Sounds too artificial and inessential.

Appearance: Good stream of carbonation in my Duvel glass. Golden amber colour. Not a very light colour like some lagers. Respectable lacing. Head dies away to thin foam.

Aroma: Very appetising. Smells like a good German Dortmunder... honey, barley malt and a suggestion of grassy hops.

Taste: Very well balanced. Quite sweet with nice mild bitterness at finish. Aappleskin. Solid malty backbone. Flavour is mild but good.

Overall: Good but perhaps not great. Some German Dortmunders and Helles seem to have just that little touch of character or class that this lacks but this is good and really should be considered as a Polish lager and quite a good one at that.
