Had this beer years ago and it was horrible. Picked up another bottle last week just to give it another shot. Was just as bad, possibly worse. Here's what this beer tastes like..... Take a weak garbage lager and keep it in the backyard shed on a shelf next to the lawn mower for about 5 years. Then stick it in the fridge overnight and enjoy!

Poured from 500ml can. A very nice gold hue. A tight micro foamed one finger head , that must of had a train to catch , cause it left in a hurry . Grassy, corny , citrusy aroma. Taste was...okay..kinda middle of the road bland. I know I've had this years ago , and it seemed better then, or , maybe I was worse then .Also, I was curious about their claim on the can that they only used three ingredients , malted barely , hops , and mountain water . UH.. no yeast? Or, do they not consider that an ingredient? I do , but , what do I know? Peace, please.

Poured from a 500ML bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear golden color with a large white head. The aroma is light yeast and hops. decent session beer.

This is not okay. This is one of the nastiest euro lagers that I have come across. Maybe my bottle was too old. I would not know because there is NO DATE on the bottle or the label. It is sort of puzzling to me because all the other Poland lagers that I had were really good. This is close to undrinkable. Maybe I should revisit it. I don't know I have a lot of other beers to try out so I probably won't get back to this one for a while but for now Cheers! D (65-69) score range

Poured from 330ml bottle into glass. Label has Best before: '04.08.2018'.
Clear, straw colored body.A little white head settles to thin cap and middle island. Few, scattered spots of lacing.
Aroma of hay and wheat, light pepper. Not the most pleasant of aromas.
Taste of cracker, bread malt, and mild spicy hops. Sweet, honey like at the back end.
Thin to medium mouth feel, clean but with some tongue bitterness.
A mild lager, but still tastes like beer.

Golden colour, decent head that dissipates quickly. Smell of grain and citrus, promising, but wait a few minutes and it decays to a really unpleasant aroma.
Light body.Taste is again grain and some citrus, hints of banana and honey, refreshing. It never comes as unpleasant as the smell, it could be a decent beer without that.

Not a bad brew. Here goes:

A: Great. Massive, fluffy head and lacing. Pours clear gold as well. Only downside is the lack of body carbonation.

S: Good. Hay, wheat, and lighter peppers - the traditional pilsner hops smell. Horseblanket.

T: Fairly one-dimensional. Can taste the pilsner hops but not much else (no cereal grains or baker's yeast, like in other pilsner beers). Still good, though, just nothing to write home about.

F: Little undercarbonated.

O: Good beer. Has its flaws, but good nonetheless.
