3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2014
Oct, 2003 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! [3.8]
Oct, 2014 500ml brown bottle. 1995. 5.6%. Good body. Pleasant fruit. A decent drink. [3.0]

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle in USA. Very light color, very light, watered down flavor. No aftertaste. My family that has had this fresh in Poland has given it better marks, but it is more of a light lager/thirst quencher.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A lager that is a wee bit hoppier than the international standard. Fresh and crisp, when compared with other Polish beers...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale beer with a foamy head and plenty of bubbles. Light hopped aroma with a dry mild and refreshing flavour. A great refreshing beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Gotta say, I've never before seen a name with so many letters from the end of the alphabet in a row. Pours clear and yellow with a rapidly diminishing head. Aroma is malty, soapy and slightly skunky. Flavor is initially biting hoppiness giving way to malt sweetness and a dry finish. Light body and assertive carbonation. Not bad as far as Mega-brewer lagers go and definitely the best Polish beer I've had to date (the only one in fact, but we'll let that slide).

Had this in Poland becasue i was stuck there wating for a flight home. Ok beer for the price in zloty. No real flavor and lots of carbonation. It does have a certain kick to it in the end. Ok if you are stuck in Poland but there are better things to do there.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear gold colour with poor head retention. Not much aroma, but slightly malty. Highly carbonated, making it appear quite bitter (a bit more malt comes through when it goes flatter.) Only slightly malty, with no hop flavour but a very strong, late developing bitterness with a strong soapy quality. Thin body. Has elements of a good beer, but is missing a lot of malt in the middle and needs more hop character and less bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Gold coloured. Heavy carbonization. Thick white lasting foamy head and light lacing. Aroma is a light combination of yeast and hops. Nice body and lightly foamy mouth feel. Just enough hops to taste. Tastes like a light pilsener with a vegatable edge. Maybe a little too thick for a lawnmower beer.
