Transparent gold. Thin foamy white head. Steady and thick carbonation. Healthy spicy hop aroma, clean water and toast. Sharp yet rounded with a gentle toasted sweetness and tasty hop spiciness. Cleanly finishing. Refreshing. Light body. Very well balanced. Thickens and fills out as it sits. Stealth like alcohol attack. Finishes fuller, maltier and lightly sweet. More than respectable, this is downright good.

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.

Pours a golden color. Smell is of malts and grains. Taste is crisp, malts, some grains, slightly sweet. Overall clean tasting and refreshing, a quality lager.

Aromat słodowo-chmielowy. Duża piana, ale szybko opada. Smak słodowy z w miarę przyzwoitą goryczką. Najlepszy lager do 3zł.

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!

Had this one bottled. Typical boring pilsener appearance, golden yellow and bubbly, slightly musty odor, but BOY what a taste! Probably one of the best lagers I’ve ever had. Complex and delicious, notes of apple, pear and grape, with an excellently balanced hoppiness. I can certainly overlook the aroma and appearance for a great overall rating.

Pours a crystal clear very pale yellow with lots of carbonation. The huge slightly off white head took about 2 minutes to subside to about an inch. Aroma is of citrus, then hops, then maybe corn. After about 3 minutes there is just a trace of foam left and a scant amount of lacing. The taste is a good balance of lemon / hops / malt, pretty smooth with strong, but not overpowering carbonation. A nice bitterness in the aftertaste at first, but turns a bit metallic after that. Although not my favorite Polish pilsner, it has it’s own character and is a pretty tasty balanced beer. I would buy again.

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.
