This one pours a light straw yellow color, with a small head and lots of lacing.

This smells mainly grassy hops and sweet yeastiness. It’s simple but pleasant enough.

This is very simplistic and non-complex but pretty tasty nonetheless. This tastes super crisp, with a nice herbal and crisp grassy hop flavor, and a nice biscuity malt flavor. I’m having this relatively fresh, so I think that certainly affects the higher rating.

This is light bodied, and super crisp and clean, with a solid level of carbonation.

This is much, much better than the standard Euro lager. This is nice stuff.

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
