3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great stuff, particularly for such a light bodied beer. Slightly malty, with a splendid hoppy zing all the way through. One of my favorite beers for everyday drinking, especially with pizza. The beer thermometer is wicked cool, too. This stuff seems to be hugely popular in Toronto, for some reason. I remember seeing neon zywiec signs in the windows of some pubs out there.

Crisp, golden color, decent pure white head. A very tasty beer. It’s my ’not too’ beer. Not too hoppy, not too bland, not too bitter, not too boring, etc. I LIKE THIS BEER! It’s JUST RIGHT. The only negative is $9.99 for a six pack of 11.2 oz bottles. I’ll splurge now and then...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pleasant lager that tastes slightly like a porter. Golden yellow color with a yeasty aroma. Decent beer that gets better the more you drink of it.

Nice cereal-like nose, pleasant. Light gold-yellow color and a leggy head. Very little hopiness. Smooth and a decent balance of flavors.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
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. It’s the most popular Polish beer outside Poland (in England it can be found in every Booths store). But in Poland it’s 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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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?

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice floral, perfume aroma and flavor. The finish is pure floral, and it lasts long. Basic gold color with a huge white frothy head. The feel was too watery for my tastes. Nice basic lager.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.
