MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Glassy golden bubbling color with a thick white head. Aroma is bland and rather boring. Flavor has a bit of malt sweetness to counteract the slight bit of hope bitterness in the end. Nothing too special.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2004
Clear golden/yellow colour. Hoppy, grassy aroma. Slightly sweet and malty, with a mild hop-biiter finish. Quite okay. Like a Heineken with more alcohol.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Yellow, white head, with head retention. Aroma is slight corn, slight hop, and slight malt. Flavor is decently malty with a light hop finish. Not bad, but doesnít blow me away.

IHCNavistar (93) - Orinda, California, USA - OCT 24, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2004 Bottle. Pleasant hoppy aroma, but slightly skunky. Mild bitterness. Coloring is an amber hue. Also, flavor is really thin, but the mothfeel isnít TOO watery. The flavor is great, but I wish it had more carbonation in it. Thin head. Generic beer-not too bad, but not outstanding.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 16, 2004
In the bottle. Pours a boring pale yellow with only a brief suggestion of a head. Weak hop content, watery with a slight skunky flavor. No carbonation. Iíve had South American beers that were better.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2004 Since 1856, this Polish beer has been difficult to drink. Made by Heineken now, and I can feel it a little bit. Same bad aftertaste. Very light yellow lager. A little grassy as well. Not horrible for a lager, but I can really tell this is not for me. It was fairly cheap tho, so now big deal. Can I buy a vowel, Pat?

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2010 This is what Heineiken wants to be. This is not the best stuff in the world, but it is pretty good. A good session beer for sure. Recommended.

Goes down great before a Mayhem show in Poland.

Great tasteing Beer without the beer after taste. This beer also has that cool little temp gauge. I would like to find somewhere in central Indianapolis, Indiana area to buy some. I got my first taste of this great beer from a couple Polish Guys from Chicago.

The commercial deScription states "Zywiec has a hoppy nose and a pleasant golden hue" Iím not typically a big fan of beers this hoppy, but whatever hops is in this stuff is delicious. The frothy head poured a full inch above the rim of the glass withous spilling down the side. Impressive. Not the kind of beer Iíd wanna drink with a slice of pepperoni pizza, but delicious on its own. Itís hoppy in a delicious way, and if you donít like it, thereís something wrong with you. P.S. this beer is NOT Heineken. Donít even let anybody trick you into thinking this is some silly bitter maltless overcarbonated trash. This is what Heineken dreams of being.

I should ahve known... itís a heineken! Not bad, certainly not good. Itís a lager and a dull malty hoppy snooze.
