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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours with a very pale yellow body topped by a medium thick quickly disappearing head with a good amount of lace left behind. Slightly sour and lemony aroma with a slight sweetness. Slightly sweet malt aroma with a slightly sour background and a good hop balance. The finish is sweet yet biter. Light bodied and smooth with a slight dryness.

Big white frothy head with good lacing. Clear, golden body. Hints of sour fruits with floral notes. A lightly toasted barley character. A nice balancing over the 5.7 ABV. On of the better lagers out there.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
PGC under a large long lasting white head and random blobby lace. Mild hops, faint sweet malty and seaweed aroma. Soft creamy smooth body, low carb but still quite mouth filling. Moderate to light but reaosnably well balanced bitter sweet hops flavours. Weakish sweet finish and mild bitter aftertaste. Better than I expected and more character than most lagers I've tried.
