3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2005 I have to admit that I am kinda surprised by the average rating of this one. Perla is one of the best Polish lagers/pilseners. Wonderful hop smell and a nice looking head (although it goes off after a long while). The taste is very good, slightly fruity in the beginning but with a nice malt aftertaste. Feels very refreshing, I was surprised when I saw the 6% on the bottle. I’ve drunk few Polish beers that can stand next to this one. Strongly recommended.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale yellow body, thin white head. Grainy hops in the aroma with a grape juice like pale malt sweetness. Decent dry, hoppy flavor with cracker malt.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
a slightly cloudy light yellow small white well laced head disapates quickly. Smells of some light grains a weak hop and not much else very light. Lots of carbonation but very thin. Tastes of grain barley light hop some light malt. Not much to this weak pils.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strongly noticeable hops aroma. Flavor at the first try seems more bitter than in other polish pilseners, but ending gives nice sweet aftertaste Quite fizzy beer, almost ideal for hot summer, maybe to strong alcohol kick.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
If it was brewed in Oz it would probably be called "bottla" but it’s far from that. Pours a clear gold with a medium size shortish lasting fine bubbled head. Aroma is a butterscotch and faint stale woody hops with a touch of plasticene as it warms. Thin watery lowish carb palate. Flavour is super watery mild candy sweet corny malt and light stale slightly acrid bitter hops still manages to hide the 6,2% ABV. Lacks the bite and crispness associated with any sort of real pilsner, more like an average macro lager than a pils

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light orange/yellow with average white head formation. Sweet malty aroma with some grassy hop aromas and hints of citrus. Lacks some of the spicy characters of other pilseners, but not too bad. Strong sweet malt flavour hides the alchol content quite well, but could maybe do with some stronger bitterness to balance.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Slightly hazy yellow. Flat, uninspired, and lacking in both the malts and hops department. A bit bready and earthy.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Really disappointing. I was hoping to get a kick form the 6.2%, but they hid it really well. This was the only aspect that was going to save this beer- a nice kick.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light golden in color with a medium white head. Aroma is grainy, buttery,bready and sweet like candy. Flavor starts bitter and becomes sweet, spicey hops, with more bread and butter character.A little thin in body.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle: Light cloudy orange with a light white head, dull earth and flowers in the aroma with some malts, watery mouthfeel, weak ending with a stale aftertaste. Not yummy.
