The noble scent of hops and a characteristic, delicate bitterness along with amber colour and excellent clarity are the biggest advantages of Perla. Lubin hops from the finest growers, select natural ingredients, and a traditional brewing recipe combine to set the standard for the number one seller in the Lubin region. 12.2P

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 I think the brewery itself is doing this beer an injustice. I would not call this a Pilsner, rather a style in itself. Struck a chord with me, as I dislike most Pilsners and all it’s nasty derivatives. Poured a translucent gold with a big, big head that gradually rose up and out of the stein to meet me. Aroma was grassy and slightly citric, like lemon zest. Mouth feel was brilliant, with light carbonation. Unusual spicy taste mid-palate, I think the hop used is Lublin lubelski ( I could be wrong? ), low bitterness and well rounded flavours. Cleverly balanced, big bodied and pleasant, this beer just seemed to work for me... but I wouldn’t call it a Pilsener. A decent lager.

Pours clear gold with a large long lasting head. Aroma is sweet and floral. Flavor is mild sweet with little bitterness. Mouthfeels is watery and carbonated. Sub par.

Ernest (6232) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), with notes of DMS, plastic, alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Aroma starts out a bit hoppier when first poured (52 degrees F or so), but boy howdy, this shit hits the fan as the head dies down and the temp warms a bit! Drain pour. But gets a good score for appearance, as the head is quite nice for the style (nicely sized, frothy, and long-lasting). And yes, I enjoyed using those three acronyms sequentially (this shit hits). Should be called "Hop Swine".

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Clear, golden hue, fresh, chalk-whitet, hick head of foam. Nose is clean, somewhat floral, rosey, nice enough... Taste: again, clean, smooth, no hops, adequate malt, brisk, and breezy. Tasty, almost, with a light body, that does not lack in character. Significant flavor, easy drinking, no flaws whatsoever, just a downright capable lager. Pretty good actually, can’t find a thing wrong with it. The first Polish lager I’ve liked!

Not a full flavoured beer but enjoyable anyhow. Pale golden colour with a medium size white head as well as good lacing. Pleasant hoppy aroma that wasn’t overpowering. Slight oiliness in the taste, initial medium bitterness that softens more so at mid palate and some floral notes. Good thirst quencher! Cheers!

PorterPounder (5572) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2004
Light golden pour with a fluffy white clumpy head. Typical Saaz induced aroma with a bit of wort thrown in for good measure. Unremarkable Pils flavor, a litte bit of honey sweetness softens it up. Decent Mouthfeel. Very unique bottle - looks like a WW1 grenade.

Aurelius (4199) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2004
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.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2004
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.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2003
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!
