Pours an average orangy-amber, with a moderate amount of foam. Smells ok, maybe a sweet malt with yeast. Tastes slightly artificially sweetened, with a hint at malty flavor. Mildly bitter, but not suggesting hop flavor at all.

Easy enough to drink, smooth even, but ultimately pretty forgettable. Try BB Burgerbrau, Okocim, or Perla instead...

This lager poured a clear, golden color with creamy, white foam that clinged to the glass in places. There was good carbonation from the bottom of the glass. The smell was biscuity malt, but it faded fairly quickly. The taste was biscuity malt with mild sweetness and mild hoppiness. The alcohol was well hidden. The mouthfeel was smooth, almost creamy, with medium-light body and moderate carbonation. It was lightly sweet up-front, but this gave way to light hoppiness in the finish. This was a decent beer, and reminded me of other Polish lagers.

Pours a syrupy, hazy orange color. Head is abundant and settles down fairly tight. Notes of orange and grain aroma. Tastes mild for a Polish strong lager. Fairly sweet to the palate covering up the 7.00% abv. Tastes of grain, rice, orange with a mild malt aftertaste. Not a bad brew, but nothing outstanding.

Another euro malt liquor that I needed to try based on the $1.49 price tag. Nothing special, but nothing terrible in this polish "Olde English". The body is coppered gold with a thin head that quickly ran to the hills. The aroma is malty with subdued fruitiness. The taste is filled with grainy-alcoholness and finished with a little hop presence. The mouthfeel is semi-smooth and finishes sweet with an alcoholic warmth. Not bad, but don't feel bad that I only bought 1.

Came in a 500mL brown bottle. It poured with a nice carmel color with a lot of carbonation bubbles and a very nice head. Smell is a little mild, you can get a good sense of the malts in this one. Mouthfeel was was quite carbonated, but not overwhelming. Taste was not very strong at all for a euro strong lager and head a hint of iron taste in it. The drinkability factor is rather average. Nothing really stands out in this beer, except that it has a stout like head which is quite impressive for a lager.

pours a deep dark golden, with very minimal head, which left very quickly.
the aroma is mostly malt, little alochol, and hops.
the taste is nice and what i would expect from a polish lager, be it this one is a little stronger then most. the malt is very dominate , followed by lublin hop bitterness, slight sweetness, minineralness.
the mouthfeel is a little thing but very carbonated so it has a nice zing as it goes down.
be is very drinkable, which could be dangerous with the 7%, defenate summer beer.

No surprise here-what we have is a standard Polish lager --the Bud,Miller, Coors of Poland if you will, and it blows the US's version of the same away. I am surpised its grouped into a special category of Euro-strong lager--cuz it tastes just like Pilsener Urquel to me.

It is excellent--I can only imagine how cheap this must be if you are in Warsaw or Bialystok.

A-gold and boring -no lace head, carbonation, etc.
S-malty czech syle smell--some grassiness too.
T-I could swear this is Pilsener Urquel which means --classic color and flavor--not too stong just smooth and mild.
MF--what you expect is what you get--pleasant-thats really it.
D- It would be easy to have a session with these as long as some food was present.

Pours a deep gold color with a shortlived ivory head and some minimal lace. The aroma is sweet cracker-like malts, a little dark fruit and a subtle sulfury note. The taste is of a pleasant thick maltiness, with some spicey hops and quite evident alcohol. Theres a slightly astringent feel in the finish, perhaps can related. The moutheel is medium and somewhat creamy, with lots of perceptable prickly carbonation. This is quite a drinkable cheap strong lager. It may be my favorite of the style as it lacks any serious flaws. Not bad, not great either though.

16.9oz dark brown bottle. No freshness date.
Pours a shiny brass color with a smallish white head and very little spotty lace.
It has an initial whiff of dried malt, which transforms into a more grainy and cut hay-like smell. An alcoholic fuminess comes and goes.
Raw malt and corncob come to mind, or am I eating lawn clippings? There is a pleasant underlying herbal quality beneath the rough harshness.
A mild taste reminiscent of tart pear skins and an astringent bitterness add to the raw edgy bite. Vodka-like alcohol is present throughout.

A Polish strong lager conjures images of some dude in a Warsaw slum brown-baggin' it. What if this same beer was labeled a Maibock and came from a brewer up on a hill in Southern Germany? Would you like it better?

Pours with a fat, clammy head strong enough to make glass art out of. Nose of fried bananas smothered in black walnut sauce. All taste elements mingle wisely, clover honey to bitter green on a bed of soft sourdough. A little raw perchance, but worth the effort afforded.

The pour leaves a thin lasting layer of foam on top. Color is a darker yellow, straw color.
I get a clean aroma, filled in with a slight malt and floral hop nose.
The taste may be best described as 'strong', like the name suggests. The beer is not watery, a little sweet and kind of dry like some white wines. I also get a little hop zing in there someplace.
I think this is a pretty drinkable pils for a warm spring night such as this.

A crystal clear, deep golden body displays average-sized, slow-moving bubbles beneath a bright-white head that drops shortly to a whispy surface covering. It does, however, leaves some thin lacing about the glass which is quite attractive. The aroma expresses some delicately sweet, adjunct-laden malt and a smattering of herbal hops. It's just a bit more interesting than the common "beer" smell; but it's clean and inviting. It's medium-to-full bodied; and its moderate carbonation leaves just a light tingle on the tongue. In the flavor a clean, lightly sweet maltiness is tempered by a firm bitterness, some grassy and herbal hops, and some underlying alcohol. It finishes dry with a touch of alcohol and some rising herbal hop flavor that shortly fades to leave a drop of sweet, honeyish malt on the front of the tongue.

Poured a clear and golden straw color with a thin head of Swiss cheese-like lace on the glass. The aroma yields some musty graininess and floral like fruits. The taste is, well, like most other Eastern Euro lagers that I’ve tried – has a sour and almost putrid musty graininess. Decent grassy bitter finish and somewhat drinkable, although there are plenty of better choices out there.

Pours to a clear orange-golden with a slight chill haze, forming a rocky white head with sparse lacing and average retention. Carbonation is mild to moderate. Aroma is sweet mown hay, abundant lightly-husken pale malts, floral rose-tainted hops, and distant peaches. Mouthfeel is moderately smooth with a firm body and light acidity. The taste is very much an echo of the aroma, with a moderately strong semi-floral bitterness and semi-dry hop astringency. There is a touch of honey-like sweetness in the aroma, but not detectable in taste. Alcohol is appreciated in the mouthfeel with a slightly cloying character. Grain husks linger long after the finish.

This is a somewhat unusual brew. It is indeed a "strong beer", but not in the traditional sense. The alcohol, body, firm malts and abundant hops make this a "Dopple-pils". At any rate, it's an enjoyable break from the cases of stout I have been drinking this winter, and something I would consider drinking again, when I am in that certain mood. Good stuff...peculiar, but good.

Pours a clear, golden color with a very nice head. Attractive and consistent lace is produced all the way to the bottom of the glass. The aroma is malty and sweet. In fact, there’s a honey-like sweetness in the nose that works well with the continental hops. Taste is balanced notably toward malt. Finishes mild and spicy. Overall it’s clean and quite drinkable. It didn’t drink like a 7% ABV beer….it was understated, restrained, smooth and easy. That said, there’s nothing particularly noteworthy either. This is an above average strong European lager.

Nice golden lager with a medium head (suprisingly good for a can). Lack of spice but alcohol taste is well hidden. This is above some of the lager that I have drank but still nothing too distinctive. Would investigate other product from this Polish brewery.

--poured a golden straw like color. Very little head that faded quickely. Also no tracing on the sides.
--Tasted to me like a traditional strong beer. It still had that european taste to it which I don't really mind. I did like the can. The picture of the Polish guy drinking what is likely a beer was pretty detailed.
I don't know if I would drink this beer again as I am not a fan of strong beers.

The pour a lustrous gold color, the head bright white, frothy in texture, the head impressive in size, with the leftover lace a fine coating to seal off the glass. Nose is clean and fresh, malt dominated, as is the start also a tad sweet, the top skinny in its feel to the palate. Finish has a pertinent hop bite, the carbonation light to moderate, the aftertaste quite dry, just an “Average “Lager/Pils, with a bigger ABV, which does nothing for the beer.

At 7%ABV, this brew is to strong for me..The beer itself is a very nice honey gold shade with a thin lace on top. The taste is a tad on the bitter side with a slight hoppy after taste. The aroma has a very slight musky scent..".No thanks, what else ya got?"

half-litre can, which I drank it straight from (why did I? you ask.... I'm not exactly sure) So no comment on colour. The beer just reeks of strength. The smell and first taste are both overpowered by alcohol. I rather that my beer does not do this. Strength can be masked by flavour, unfortunately this bland lager did nothing for me.
Nothing Special.

Magnat: (half liter thick brown bottle) Huge, rich head, with a very nice golden pale color. Very nice stickiness. Aroma is right down on the farm: earth, grains and a hint of manure. Has a slight euro lager aroma, and body, but its has rich earthy grain taste, and nice alcohol warmth. Not bad for 10 bits.
