The head is good, the body brown. It smells bitter, fruity. The taste is aromatic, bitter, fruity, hoppy. Nice! 12/11/11/11/11/11

Derbeth (198) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 11, 2013
Aroma: herby hops, a bit caramel, slight note of fruit. Colour: copper. Minimal head, does not last long, decent lacing. Medium bitterness, light sweetness. Medium body, oily feel. Nice beer, a bit like English ale, with bitterness above average, but not harsh.

hirigalzkar (2108) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle. Notes of vegtables, caramel and rye bread. Finishes bitter. Quite drinkable, but there is something wrong with the balance, maybe it’s a bit to dry for it’s style? Interesting anyway.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2012 Second rating: the recipe has seemingly changed. Lots of caramel, honey and grassy hops in both aroma and flavour, the bitterness is lighter (still strong for a Polish beer) and no longer harsh. First rating: Bottle. Amber with rocky head. Aroma of caramel, dark bread, earth, dried plums, liquorice, some fruitiness but not too intensive. Taste is mainly caramel but the fruit esters are more prominent than in the smell. Thick and heavy, lasting hop bitterness, grassy, herbal, earthy. Oily palate. Very dry and heavy beer. A bit too earthy, could be more balanced but definitely interesting. The hoppiness is really strong, especially for a Polish beer.

bottle, donated by Schroppfy! Clear amber-brown colour with a red glow. Large, beige head. Intensive aroma of caramel and hops. Malty background, no sweetness here, super dry, which contrasts well with the lovely and intensive caramel and chocolate flavours. Is it a Dunkel? Is it a brwon ale? Is it an amber ale? I haven’t the faintest. A top-fermented Dunkel which ist not sweet but full of lovely hops? IPA-like hops retronasal. Very unusual, habe never come across a beer like this. Smooth carbonation. Brilliant, fantastic, superb stuff! Thank you, Michael!!!!!

Ingen lär lämna det tömda stopet med en känsla av att ha sett framtiden. Zawiercie är ett öl som gör vad det ska. Det går genom den gastronomiska besiktningen utan prickar i protokollet, men lämnar heller inga bestående intryck. Om den polska presidenten svingade en bägare med Obama är det här ett öl hans politiska rådgivare skulle rekommendera. Det signalerar att personen är medveten om vad han eller hon dricker, samtidigt som det är enkelt (läs: folkligt) och därmed inte kan beskyllas för att vara snobbigt eller elitistiskt. En smakfull kompromiss.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2011 New rating: Much more vibrant and fresh on tap! Delicious and absolutely definitely ale-like, to dispel any doubt. Nicely hopped for a Polish beer! Up to 3.7 overall. Original in bottle = 3.3. Like a "regular" American beer! New from Browar na Jurze, intentionally toward the bitter end of the spectrum. Great bread and especially caramel malt sweetness, not too much, and real hopping levels (not Noble!). Some pine and grapefruit in the flavor. Easy to drink. Not a world killer, but if you are ale-starved like I am, this is a godsend. Normal body, normal conditioning, aroma is quite hoppy (pine, resin).
