Drank on tap at Hilton in Gdansk, Poland

A - Light, clear yellow/gold in color, minimal head, very slight lacing on glass.

S - Slight citrus, with more biscuity malt scent.

T - Similar to the smell, with hints of apple, not a lot going on here, tastes are very subtle.

M - Mild bodied and mild carbonation.

O - Feel like I'm drinking an upscale Bud, crisp finish would be very refreshing on a hot day.

Poured from a 500ml bottle.

L - Light thin head that dissapears quickly. A very thin and clear gold to orange colour.

S - very light on the smell. Sweet malts and some grains. Nothing special at all.

T - initial sweet malts with a more bready after taste.

M - Light body, initial burst of carbonation that settles down in the mouth pretty quickly

A bottle of 500 ml, at home, poured in a tall wide glass. I think I got this in Germany.
Nice pale golden-yellow colour with a one finger head. Strong smell as I pour it.Mostly malts and hops. The head is still there, covering the surface, now only 5 milimetres in height. Nice taste, although a bit weird, apples (?) Nice on the palate too, medium thickness and average carbonation.
Overall, quite good beer

Appearance - Pours a golden straw yellow with a very thin amount of white head. Bubbles are present and there is nice clarity.

Smell - Sweet malts, apples, bready grains.

Taste - There is some sweetness to this one with a slight hint of apples. Breadiness is detectable.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium bodied with medium level of carbonation.

Overall - Not much complexity in the flavour or aromas, but certainly is refreshing on a hot summer day. Another Polish favourite that I like to have once in a while.

No date, no freshness info.

A- Super clear, light straw colored pour. Zero head, zero lacing.

S- Dirty gym socks and beef au jus. Really doesn't smell like anything I've ever encountered before.

T- Slight grass, with a strong bread pudding taste to it. I keep smelling gravy in this.

M- Light bodied, decent carbonation.

O- This may be Poland's #1 beer but it's heading down the drain.
