3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild sweet grainy, lightly pearish, malty aroma. Light hazy beer, a very distinctive potato-masher handgrenade bottle. Grainy, grassy, mild, lightly fruity beer. Medium-light body, very quick finish. Not bad.

The smell is awful, but the taste is not horrible if you can get around the skunky aroma. The flavor is biscuity, and has a slight hop bitterness, the finish is light and sweet, and very easy to drink.

Very pale golden color with thin foamy white head. Smells quite skunked. OK flavor though. A slight bitterness which is very nice. A little sweet but not too bad. This is an excellent tasting beer. Better than the light Zywiec.

Polish beer are nearly always "pearls" in my mind! (So are many young polish women, but I digress!) Satisfying Eastern European pilsner that packs a punch at 6.2% ABV. This "Hop Pearl" is not too different from a Becks in taste, color or smell. Its good cold. It is a light, bubbly pour. Slight aroma. And a decent lingering aftertaste (even a bit sour.) Not a bad lighter-style beer to begin an evening. A good appetizer to whet one's whistle for more!

This is actually good! Better drink this one really cold. I usually drink stout so this is kinda light for my tastes but anyway better than macros. Refreshing!

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
ellow color with a popcorn white head that leaves touches of lace as it diminishes to a few bubbles on top. light grain and alcohol aroma. Starts somewhat floral and sweet and ends up sweet and pure alcohol. You're right Josh this does need to be in a 40 OZ. Gets thicker and my tougue wants to crawl out of my mouth looking for air.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear gold with a nice white head. Aroma is not strong, but definitely has a flower/hop presence. Sweet and thin, with a decent dry and hoppy finish. There is much grain and alcohol flavor, which is slightly unpleasant. Mediocre pils.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light golden colour with a very white head and tons of medium-sized bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Some sweetness to the aroma, and somewhat simliar to a macro-brew from the united states. The taste was very mild as well, offering almost no aftertaste and very little to savor. I only bought this because it was a polish beer that I hadn't had before, and never saw while in Poland! Not really worth a try unless you are similar to me, and want to try every polish you can find!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2003 Clear straw colored with an abundant but large bubbled head that is not the longest lasting. Strong hop aroma saaz or a similar European hop type. Very clean flavored and refreshing beer, hops are dominate but the malt comes through as you drink more, this beer is a little sweet at the end. Perla will sneak up on you it’s a strong one but is so refreshing you tend to drink it quickly. A very good pilz I can only suspect that the bad reviews are ether cases of drinking old beer or just not liking Pilsener.
