Polonia Pils by Flying Bison Brewing Co. was judged as BJCP 5D German Pils.

Malty sweetness at moderately high levels coalesce with floral hops for an inviting first impression. Super clean fermentation allows the grainy malt to shine through. Light golden color, clear but not bright clarity. Creamy long lasting white head. The sweet malt is up front in the flavor with a prominent honey quality, complemented by the floral hops. Spicy hops join the party. Medium bitterness seems to elevate to higher levels as it carries through to the medium-dry finish in spite of the substantial malt presence. A little toasty malt makes itself known in the aftertaste. Medium body with moderately high levels of carbonation clearing away the malty creaminess without biting. A fine example of a Bavarian style Pils. The only shortfall may be that classic examples provide a deep richness in the malt profile without compromising the overall hop bitterness.
