Light gold colour. Grassy, slightly herbal (sage, thyme) notes. Clean, quick finish. Simple, occasionally satisfying.

Decent golden lager. Some decent hops and a little bit sweeter than expected. Pretty light. Overall it was pretty average.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 16, 2003
Golden light color with a nice sized head (based on the rest of the impression) and lacing. Aroma is very lightly malty with adjunts. Flavor is well balanced with bitter hops and a malty sweet finish. The mouthfeel ends spicy but is not too impressionable. eh.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2003
Pours a dirty yellow color, sporting no head or lace. Yeah, not a lot of nose on this one. Malt and hop aromas is about the only thing present. Very light flavors of sweet malts. Nothing else really. Pretty average.

Going from bar to bar in the "little Warsaw" section of Greenpoint, Brooklyn is always an adventure. Plenty of taverns. Cute polish girls. Seedy characters. And plenty of beer. This simple, light tasting lager is nothing special. Slight aroma of hops and spices. Very thin and unimpressive palate. Dry finish. Its refreshing and being that this was served to me freezer cold, I think I would enjoy this better on a hot summer's day while grilling up some kielbasa!

egajdzis (5302) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2005 Poured a slightly dark golden color with a white head. Western European hop aroma with hints of DMS as well. Smooth malty taste, barely hoppy with phenols coming out at the end. Fairly simple, but nothing like the porter!

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Light tan no head. Really not that bad for a lager. It is a little sweet. Not that much character but good for what I would think a Polish beer would taste like.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - OCT 31, 2003
Medium gold in color with a moderate head and fair lacing. The aroma was malty and bready with a hint of spice. Light bodied and smooth with a fairly sweet malty flavor, lightly hopped with a hint of butterscotch. The finish was short, mild and on the sweet side. The only thing I found remarkable about this beer was the bottle itself with it's cool labels and cap. On the back there is a beer thermometer that turns pink and reads "Zywiec" when the brew reaches the ideal drinking temperature. Hmm..pretty clever I guess, but I think a bottling date would have been more practical.

Refreshing. The 1st Polish beer that I've tried (at least, that I know of). It is pale yellow/golden in color with very little head. Tastes more or less like Heineken and the like. Pretty good - I'd definitely give it another try.

Bottle. Nice. Soft, creamy, buttery. Nice soft but warm and developing hoppy bitterness. Not too sweet, not salty. Balance between light, but tasty malt, and warm, not aggressive hops, is excellent. A quality beer, lager, pilsner, call it what you will - this rocks!
