Despite being told numerous times how to say this beer’s name, the pronunciation continues to elude me. Less mysterious is the convenient "wait until Zywiec logo appears" function on the back label, which indicates the ideal drinking temperature. Inside the bottle, expect a typical lager: medium-gold in colour, cereal and hints of sugar on the nose, and a good balance between sweetness and bitterness on the palate. While not a full-flavoured brew, this is an innocent and refreshing lager that tastes like it has been produced with quality ingredients. The name may be baffling but the flavour sure is not.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 11, 2003
Although pulled from the cooler at the local store, this beer had a light skunk aroma. The built in beer thermometer showed the proper word on the label, but I started out extra cold with this one to taste the full range of flavor. White and thin head and clear pale yellow appearance. Very light malt with a touch of sweetness, also some light hops. Finish is crisp and dry. This is one light lager style beer. I think my sample may have slightly tainted, although it was still difficult to find significant flavor in this one. Better than drinking water though. I kicked it up a few points for the cool temperature sensitive label.

Suttree (5255) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 8, 2003
New Country: Poland! WooHoo! Now I don't have drink this ever again! Pours yellow with a white sloppy head. Taste a little sour, and maybe a little skunked. Perhaps a bit of a canned corn flavor as well.

WabashMan (1014) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAY 14, 2003
Light to medium gold with large, thin, white head. Aroma is fairly typical lager. Flavor is fairly thin and watery, with a light bitterness in the aftertaste.

beerbastard (725) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2003
Sparkling pale golden with small white head. Delicate malty nose. Balanced hop and malt flavor, but not well blended, (I notice a separation). Medium body. Short dry finish. Kinda what I expected. I think it is well made, but doesn't excite me to much. But I like these beers on a warm Arizona day.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2003
Draught. Drunk on location in the main square of Krakow. Golden to light golden in colour, it had a bright white head, with moderate, refreshing gas that settled down to leave a lacy finish. Fresh crisp malt, slightly grainy middle with lacklustre finish. I wish I had of known about their porter, I didn't come across it anywhere.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2003
This beer poured a light gold color and fromed a nice foamy white head that left some trace lace as it subsided. A small amount of carbonation was present. It had an aroma of hops and grain with a touch of caramel. The flavor was of hops, grain and citrus with a touch of sweetness slightly hinting of caramel in the finish. Now technically I believe this to be a pilsner rather than a lager, and I think it does a fine job of it. Some of reviews had me fearful from getting it from less than my steller store manager who would never allow the clear glass to be exposed lone enough to be subject to skunkiness.

Bronstein (175) - Göttingen, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2003
Golden color, little head. Slightly fruity, sweet and pretty alcoholic flavour which reminds of a light bock. Sweet aftertaste. Thin body. Not really well balanced.

Darkover (1518) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2004 Golden color with a small white head. Aroma of malt and a little skunk. Clean crisp flavor.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2003
Faint malty aroma. Yellow golden color, white head, no lace. Sweet, little malty, no hops. Short finish. Boring.
