Clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma is grainy and slightly boozy. Taste is also grainy and boozy, slightly sweet at first but gets slightly bitter on the finish and lingers with some cardboard notes. Quite bad overall.

Apparently this is now a 7% beer. Pours straw gold with a big white head that dissipates with a few spotty dots of foam remaining. Nose is grains and cat-sitter barroom floor. Taste is similar...really reminds me of downing a day old leftover beer the morning after a college party. In other words, terrible. Tossed the last couple ounces as it warmed. A bad beer even by euro lager standards.

Nothing special, in the same league as an Heineken or Stella.

Tatra, I hope it is Polish for tantra.

Lots of head, almost as much as Leffe. Colour is deep amber and very complex.

Aroma is bitter and sophisticated, though not that inviting.

This is made by the Zywiec brewery, in my opinion the best brewers in Poland.

Initial taste is highly flavourful and intense, and the aftertaste progresses onwards after this for about a minute, slowly changing throughout. This is a very complex beer, with an abundance of different flavours within it. The brewing techniques and raw ingredients are impressive. This is one of the best beers that I have ever had from a can. Though I had never had it before today, possibly this is because of the can design, which is not the best. It is black with a man on, wearing a weird cowboy like hat. Who is this person..? Is he the creator of the beer..? He may be, though my limited Polish of Tak, koolva and dobranoc kochanie is not enough to work this out from the can.

This is an impressive beer, especially as it is in a can from my local shop, and I have never heard of it before, and it has a strange Polish cowboy in a hat on the front. And the back, he seems to be there also.

Zywiec make the 2 best Polish beers in my opinion, respect to them. This beer has taste elements that are similar to a dark porter, I assume they have roasted their barley somehow. Yet the colour is like a lager or a Belgian red beer.

Ok, this beer wins my award for being the best unknown beer that I have ever had.

500ml Can: BBD 9th Dec 13, poured into a UK pint sleeve at my parents house on 24th Oct 13.

As you'd expect, it poured a clear golden colour and had a snow white head (that faded fast, also as you'd expect from a Euro lager/pilsner). The can is now black by the way, and the ABV is down to 7.0 from the 7.8 stated currently on BA.

Nothing sets this apart from the mass of similar brews around the world, it had a mini-corn like aroma with some metallic notes and tasted like a strong lager/pilsner with the alcohol showing more as it warmed a little.

Bog standard in every aspect: hope my Dad doesn't get anymore. It'll only give him headaches.
