Lech Premium Review
Continuing the cheap beer reviews, I have Poland's Lech Premium. This is a lager, which is a style of beer that I generally dislike. It tends to be very light and bland.
This beer pours with a thin head that quickly disappears leaving no lacing. It's got an attractive straw color, a little darker than I expected. The nose smells like malt and grain. The taste is very light but surprisingly pleasant, tasting like malt and hops. The finish is slightly bitter and quickly disappears, but it isn't as watery as you usually get with this type of beer. There is little more to say about this beer. It has a generic light taste, but for a 5.2% ABV beer, it is quite competent. There is no skunky taste, and the ingredients list no rice, corn, or any other mystery ingredients. It's exceptionally drinkable. This has become my new favorite for a light-tasting day-to-day beer.
Cost - $2.05 CAD for a 500 mL can
Taste - 7.5/10
Overall - 7.7/10...really a surprisingly drinkable (+0.2!) beer with a pleasant, albeit light taste. A great find, could be the best lager I have had.
