Hevelius Kaper, 8.7%, from Poland.
So far I've really just loved every Polish beer I've had...so I thought I'd give this one a try. It's super cheap, and 8.7%! How bad could it be?
It pours a light red-amber, sparkling clear. There's a decent head that sticks around. It smells a little bit like light beer - corn, faint hops.
The taste, however is nothing like light beer. The hops jump right in with a bitter herbal, thick flavor. There's a slightly dry finish. It's not horrible, but not a standout. Probably won't pick this up again.
