2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium golden pour, wispy white head. Grassy aroma with hints of saaz hoppiness. Flavor is crisp and refreshing with some honey sweetness and a wort-like back end. Crisp, clean mouthfeel. Surprise find in the back of the refrigerator at a Super Bowl Party.

The Tyskie I have tasted straight from the brewery is one of the finest lagers I have ever tasted in Poland. 5 awards are not enough. This beer is the only beer in the world that has won 2 of the same gold medals running. Those of you who have different opinions must have tasted an exported variant. ie; try Fosters in Australia and then back in the UK. Both bad but Aussie one is far worse. Value for money and clean taste right down to the last drop every time. I donít see what everyone is complaining about...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well...........this is one that really looks better than it is....which isnít too bad, but...it sure has that "golden color and thick, white head" as advertised. Lots of bubbles, lots of bubbles...no aroma, at least that I could detect. The palate was so-so at best, but since there isnít a 2.5 in the drop-down box, I have it a "3". OK, letís put it this way, if I walked into a bar and my choice was between this and Bud, Iíd take Tyskie. Take it from there.

Bottle. Clear golden in color with a nice white head. Sweet malty aroma. Hoppy notes. Hoppy and malty flavor. Clean and crisp tasting. Nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Great looking white, dense head. Some corn in the aroma and some DMS but it looks like a promising beer. Flavor has some sweetness (honey) but finished pretty clean. Why do pale lagers get such a bad rap on this site? How does the highest rated PL only have an 84 percentile? Anyway, the beer ainít bad.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: Pours a light golden color with a small white head. Aroma is pungent with lager malts and hints of grassiness. Soft malty flavor into a watery sweetness. No real bitters here only hints of grass. Just another bland lager.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2008 330ml bottle. Pale golden body with a small white head. Not much aroma at all. Flavor is a bit sweet, harsh malty, almost no finish. Really bad stuff.
Re-rated as 500ml can. Same score, this is really terrible. Sweet, soapy, harsh and out of balance.

Gold color. Grainy bready malt aroma. Flavor is the same with a grassy finish. I thought it sucked.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 ounce bottle from City Market in Burlington VT (December 2007), sampled a few minutes out of the fridge from a Christoffel glass. Voluminous head fills over 1/2 the glass, dying slowly atop the very clear light gold-straw body and leaving feathery lacing....slight grainy nose has just a faint whiff of industrial/plastic noxiousness, but is not skunked....sweet, quite cloying, syrupy front fades quickly and is replaced by a bitter, rather metallic/mineralic quality that carries through to the finish....carbonation is on the low side; faint hoppy notes do occur after a few sips, and the industrial quality fades a bit though it never goes away entirely. On the whole, drinkable but not good at all.
