That how a lager should taste and look. Nice, goldish colour with great medium lasting foam. Nice bubbles after pouring into a glass. Amazing aroma. First few sips taste brilliant. Then the aftertaste comes into the play. And the aftertaste is pretty bitter, which is fine for a lager, I think. Itís the most popular Polish beer outside Poland (in England it can be found in every Booths store). But in Poland itís considered as one of the worst.

Colour is light golden. Has a nice medium lasting white foam. The aroma is slightly sweet and hoppy. Flavour is pleasant and sweetish. Finish has some moderate bitterness. Quite like this pilsener.

Light gold color, small head. Lager-ish aroma, corn or rice? Typical euro-lager, some malt and hops. Kind of harsh and somewhat metallic. Ah corn. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is a little metallic. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. It does have a high tech thermometer thing in the label for letting you know the correct temperature to drink this stuff, but why bother? Is Zywiec the Polish word for Budweiser?

I know that I drank this beer at the right temperature because the label said so. It poured with a big, fluffy white head with lots of bubbles and a barely yellow color. The nose was very sweet and had hints of corn in it. It tasted like an American lager with a little better bitterness, but it drank a little harsh. Nothing special.

Its not great. I reckon its almost got an American lager thing happening, which is a bad thing. No doubt. The coolest thing is that its hard to pronounce, and youre bound to get into a bit of laughter with the bar man at the Polish Club if you ask for one. Never had it on tap. Summary: plain taste, not horrible; cool name.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 Bottle 500 ml
Pours crystal gold with lively carbonation, good solid medium head. 3+
Sweet, clean barley malts, hints of golden honey and mineral, hay malts.
Quiet soft in texture , almost delicate body . Light , sweet tones with late bready notes. Somewhere at the mid finish you will notice light green herbal hopping. Light, slightly dry gentle alcohol with mineral spring water .If malt character was fuller this beer would benefit much. Clean, solid work just gave me impression of washed, aquarelle character.

Darker yellow color, fluffy head. Slightly grassy, light hoppy nose. Body is slightly sugary and organic. Light hoppy finish. Run of the mill lager.
