Classic lager with a distinctive aroma and an excellent, deep flavour, highly recognized by the beer lovers who prefer traditional, manly beer. It works wonders after a long day of work.

Unknown canning date; drank 5/19/22 @ the Yarchives.

See-through dull orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big, noisy off-white head; a thick curtain of lace.

Corn & cream notes in the nose.

Creamy medium mouthfeel.

Corn & cream flavors up front; mild booze heat emerged as this warmed.

This was simple, but drinkable.

Horrible taste and weird smell. Can was a month past best before date but this tasted like burnt licorice and smells like a cheap bottle of brandy I was gifted many years ago.

500ml bottle into a pint glass. Dating code hard to understand.

Medium golden yellow body. Small white head shrinks to a ring and covering, a little lacing.

Lightly boozy aroma.

On tasting, has some body to it, a little sweet, abv apparent.

Mouth medium, finish a rather unpleasant alcohol burn.

Overall, the alcohol part of this beer is the strongest, and it's non too pleasant. One and done with this one.

Clear, golden body; excellent carbonation; thick, white head, frothy and sticky; sheets of foam coat the glass. Light malt scent with a suggestion of corn. Light malt taste with an herbal tone to it; moderate hop bitterness. Medium body; warm and sticky on the palate.

This was a beer I found at one of my alternate beer emporiums. I'm always intrigued when finding new imports, and this version of Tatra (there are three) certainly caught my eye. Overall, it seems like a decent lager. It certainly looks fantastic and the taste and smell are very pleasing overall. I can't say whether corn was used or not. Taste-wise, it seems like an all malt grain base. Regardless, a nice find.

Poured at 52 °F; Best before L0258616B0134 (whatever that equates to).

500 ml can, thanks to my son Steinar (bought in Krakow). ABV is 6.0%. Crystal clear pale golden colour, big to moderate white head. Strong sweetish aroma, notes of "banana" candy, hints of flowers and new-mown grass. Moderate carbonation in the glass. Medium sweet flavour of malt sugar and candy, decent hops in the finish. Not a beer I’d buy again, but drinkable.

Poured from the can into an imperial pint glass, the beer is kind of standard gold/yellow. It has a massive white head that leaves really nice lacing.

The aroma is grains a bit of apple juice.

The beer is sweet and bit grainy. crackers and bread, but the sweetness is the overwhelming facet. The can lists barley and malted barley in the ingredients. No mention of any hops and while I am sure they use them, they don't appear to use many.... As it warms it starts to be a little solvent like.

The mouth is slightly above average with some aggressive carbonation.

I kind of expected more from a beer that has a Polish dude on the can that looks like Indiana Jones.

It looks good, but it is quickly downhill from there.

I found Polish beers are always a bit tougher on the feel for me. But I also chug a lot. But I didn't chug this one. That being said, it is probably the best feel I've had for a Polish beer, and upon trying it, tears formed in my eyes because no aftertaste remained. Poland is truly not yet lost. 6 Smirnoff Ices/10
