This is a another pale ale that's not so pale as far as the taste is concerned though it has a bit strange hint of something underneath the malt and slight hops overall it's an enjoyable beer that you can sit and have with a friend or just alone.

This somehow has a really unnatural metallic taste, and no hops or malt flavor, it's like Mocne without alcohol, so totally pointless, this is the least good beer ever

Bottled nabbed at a bodega in Brooklyn, NY.

APPEARANCE: Clear pale copper body. Off-white head. Fairly frothy. ~5-7 minute head retention.

AROMA: Grain. 6-row. Mineral-forward water. Grassy hop character. Mild aromatic intensity.

TASTE: Matches the aroma, with a biteen more hop oomph than was anticipated (but which is still extremely mild overall). Grainy, a bit metallic, not too sweet. Balance isn't dialed in, but it's tolerable.

Fairly shallow for the style. Average flavour duration and intensity.

TEXTURE: Smooth, wet, unrefreshing, somewhat stale, medium-bodied, overcarbonated. Not boozy.

OVERALL: Approachable and enjoyable for what it is, but overall it's not stellar. Drinkable and pleasant, but far from world-class. I'd get it again at Polish prices.

Poured from a 16.9 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grains, hints of green apples. Taste is grains, light malts, hints of band-aid at the finish. Feels light in the mouth and overall, not horrible, but it's a beer I won't be buying again.

Poured into a small pint glass. Pour s a medium golden amber with a thin white head that dissipates to patches with light lacing. Aroma of sweet grainy malt, and light grassy hops, a hint of lemon, slightly skunked (despite a brown bottle). Flavor follows with mildly sweet grainy malt with hints of biscuit and mild grassy hops; finishes with an odd sweetness overlaying grain and a light bitterness. Light to medium bodied. This has a classic Euro lager malt body with a little more grain and biscuit flavors than normal, which is nice, but with a strange light sweetness that is reminiscent of adjunct lagers, but almost tasted artificial. As with most beer of this style, quite drinkable and inoffensive, but the malt flavors left me wishing for more. The child in me liked the light sweetness, but it was somewhat off putting. I like the husky graininess of beers like this that are otherwise bland, so that is somewhat redeeming. Drinkable in a pinch. Fairly painless tick for this brewery.

500ml can from my local LCBO, served in a pint. Grabbed it because of the fascinating art on the can.

Look: Golden color with a finger and a half of white head that almost instantly dissipates. 3.5

Smell: First comes a piney grass smell, followed by earth undertones. Wasn't expecting the piney grass smell but with my second smell I actually kind of liked it. Very different. 2.75

Taste: The initial taste is exactly as described in smell, pine and grass. Followed by a sweetness that I cant describe, and finishing with a kick that almost reminds me of malt liqueur. 2.75

Feel: Almost zero carbonation. soft feel. 3.25

Would buy this again, but could not drink it regularly. The earthiness is both desirable and problematic.
Overall: 3.0
