3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice basic light beer. Full light is definitely a good name for this beer (light in color, taste and overall mouthfeel). I would say that appearance is the best thing this beer has going for it. Nice crisp golden color with a decent head and a suprisingly above average show of brussels lace.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2003 Bottle with a "Beer Thermometer" on the label - "Refrigerate, wait until Zywiec logo appears. That indicates ideal drinking temperature" - WOW. Straw color with a bubbly white head. Light malt aroma and a somewhat noble hops undertone. Sweet pale malt and a biting hops bitterness. Some dry floral petunia flavors. Quite light in feel and alcohol does rear its head a bit. Too biting and unbalance.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(500ml Bottle) Pours a near headless beer with a simple golden body. Refreshing nose of hops with subtle notes of malt - can best be described as 'cheerful'. Nice hop flavours with a slight bitter finish. Thin and uncomplex but with a nice malty-ness that would make it rate higher than Carlsberg. Above average - best served very cold.

A disheartened haystack in a pool of transparent banality...A stubborn hop aftertaste acts as a semblance of complexity...The perfect compliment to hamburgers and Doritos...not to a tasting session...

Not too bad. Golden color, medium sized head, slightly hoppy nose, smooth finish, crisp and drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Decent frothy white head from the pour. Aroma of warm, philadelphia soft pretzels. Very light gold color with minimal carbonation. Flavor is clean and refreshing with slight hops overtones. Finish is crisp more lingering hops. A very drinkable beer that goes down very easy. Also has a cool bottle thermometer on the back label to tell you when the beer is cold enough to drink. Groovy!!!

A bit kunky.
Golden, bubbly blanket white head.
Watery and boring.

I didn't taste anything remarkable about Zywiec but it was a good, light beer. It was slightly sour. Interesting fact is that there is a temperature-sensitive patch on the back of the bottle that appears when the beer has reached the proper temperature. I don't know how much of a difference the beer's temperature would make, but it's a cute feature.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden highly carbonated beer with a large frothy head. Quite well balanced for a pasteurised lager, sweet malt with a reasonable hop kick. Overall it is a bit thin and watery. Eurofizz but with a bit of taste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light nose of cereal, flowers, and faint spruce. Pours a sparkling light golden. The large creamy white head is fully lasting with gobs of lacing sticking to the sides of my Pilsener glass. The toasted malt flavor has fair depth with no acidity. The slightly bitter finish is bready and spicy. The light and watery body is on the edge of being creamy. The carbonation is soft and the finish is clean and smooth. Slighly better than average.
