2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Canned. A fairly typical mass produced lager, fairly refreshing and soft with a slight sweetness and little bitterness. Has the typical flat feeling of a canned lager. Average for the style.

Gold, clear, moderate head, no lace. Solid malty nose, palate is malty, a little sweet, hint of vanilla, mildly bitter hopped finish. A decent pale lager worth the little extra in price.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours out to a clear golden color with a thin white head. Light grainy notes and european hop character in the nose. Grainy flavor followed by a light, refreshing bitterness.
Not a world beater, but a somewhat tasty pilsener.

The draught version is very refreshing after a hot day’s work in the Warsaw. The canned version is deceptively strong @5.6% - better than UK Stella but not as good as Budvar.

In my last trek to Poland, I saw Zywiec everywhere. So, I made it my beer of choice. I would not say that it was exceptional, but it wasn’t repulsive either. This is a beer that you drink out in restaurants and bars. It is not necessarily a beer that you drink with food, or to simply enjoy the taste of a fine beer. Though, I would still give it a thumb’s up! Enjoy Zywiec... Polskie Piwo!!

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours gold with a slight amber tint—darker than I expected. Very small head and medium effervescence. Nutty and papery aroma. Not too promising. Basic pale lager taste with a little extra malt backbone and, if you can believe it, a very slight hint of honey. Semi-dry finish. Not good, but not the worst you can get. Probably a good Crappy European Lager to buy because the amber bottle prevents skunking.
