Okocim Premium Pils

Okocim Premium Pils is brewed by Okocim Brewers, out of Brzesko, Poland. It's sold in 500mL cans and contains a slightly above average 5.5% alcohol. It's a crystal clear golden straw coloured brew, loaded with carbonation, and topped with a white cloud of head. The head starts pretty fluffy, but fades quickly.

The Premium Pils smells of straw and grass. It's a grainy, grassy brew, with a nice bitter edge near the finish. It's this edge that helps Okocim distinguish itself from the glut of pale lagers out there. It isn't quite as crisp or refreshing as some other pilsners, but it's got character. I also like the slightly elevated booze content.

I'd like a bit better head retention, but that's hardly a dealbreaker. Otherwise, this is an interesting little lager that's well worth your trouble.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
