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

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 30, 2005
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.

With my nose deep in the goblet, I smell wet dog. I love the smell of wet dog, but assume that beer should not boast this feature (hence my middling aroma rating). Flavor is a bit of honey and a bit of butter--both good for sandwiches, but not when lemon sneaks in between. Finishes clean, and the bottle is much more interesting than this photo: it’s more like the Zhiguly bottle, or Ueringe Sticke--a ball at the bottom and superlongneck chimney.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 This headless, pale yellow liquid smells a lot like the candied corn that I used to eat (too) many years ago on Halloween. There’s a bit of hopping in the flavor, but mainly it’s a grainy sweetness. Having a sweet, sticky finish (with a dollop of bitterness), this will not go down as a favorite pilsener of mine.

This was pale colored with a billowing head that stayed around. Somewhat grassy aroma. Very light taste, less hops than I am used to in a Pils but well done. I still prefer a hoppier German Pils.

Frank (3269) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2005
UPDATED: APR 16, 2010 Pale yellow, foamy and quickly diminishing head, spots of lace. Nose of sourdough and a touch of grassy hops. Slightly sweet but not heavy w/ medium carbonation. I still don’t think this is a Pilsener. 2.2

Original Rating from 2005: Well, this says it’s a pils and it’s a Pilsener here on RB but I really don’t think it fits the style--too strong and grainy. Typical golden with diminishing head. Sweet malty nose with some husky grain notes and a waft of alcohol. Somewhat harsh flavor takes a minute of getting used to before you can really quaff the stuff. Decent enough of a strong lager if you’re looking to get wasted. 2.3

ALLOVATE (2549) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2004
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 (6596) - 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!
