It’s rare that I open up a beer and Val asks what the awful smell is that is permeating the living room. Although I had a feeling that this beer was not going to be great, in my effort to try as many different beers as possible, I went on with the review, although I caution you against having it.
Style: Euro Pale Lager
Trivia: According to the beerstore.ca, “Lech Beer is has a golden colour, light aroma, soft, light texture, lightly sweet flavours with a gently bitter finish.”
Random: I’d be curious to know if this beer is popular in Poland (where it’s brewed) or if they think it’s just as terrible as I do.
The beer poured with a one finger, pure white head. It dissipated instantly and left no lacing on the glass. There was a quarter of a finger of crown, left on top of the clear, golden-yellow body. It had a light carbonation visible. Also of note, this was bottled in green glass, which is not a good sign for the liquid inside. The nose was very strong with a lot of skunk as soon as the cap came off. I couldn’t pick up much else because of how powerful it was. The taste had a lot of skunk as well, with grain that gave some toasted bread notes. But, the skunk note overwhelmed everything. The body was thicker than expected with lots of carbonation. It had a quick finish with skunk. A bottle of this was $1.59 ($.10 per ounce), which is cheap, although even if it were free, I wouldn’t take it home. I found this beer hard to describe because it was so simple and so…well, awful. It was a chore to drink and one of the worst that I’ve had in recent memory. Needless to say, I won’t be having it again.
