Okocim O.K. Beer

Type: Pilsner
Origin: Poland
Price: $2.09 / 500 ml (16.9 oz)

A good friend of mine, born in Poland, goes back every summer to work on his family's farm, drink copious amounts of vodka, and go to ├╝ber-trendy Warsaw nightclubs. He brought this beer back with him after a recent trip, and I can see why Poles are such diehard alcoholics. For the price, I'm astounded how good this is. I can only imagine how nice it must be to drink off a good day of hard manual labor with this "full pale beer". It's slightly sweet, writ with maltiness, and extremely smooth. It's an excellent pils, and it has the distinction of the first beer I've ever spilled onto my laptop. Sweetness. If the taste isn't enough, or the though of sweaty Polish farmers, here's some food for though: imagine it being 3x cheaper. Balls? Rocked.
