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.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2004
Standard lager color. Grassy and malty aroma, little bit of sweet too. Flavor reminds me of some good czech lagers: little bit of fruity and sweet, end is mildly hopped. These Polish lagers divide into 2 gategories: good ones that have NO skunky gras flavor and then others that have. This goes definitely into first section

Golden color with a small white head. The taste is watery with a light bitterness. Thin and boring.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2005 A drinkable pale lager, nice yellow color, nice bubbles, and a quickly disappearing white head. There are much better Polish brews, despite their commercial description.

Eh? was really disappointed by this one. Poured a disturbing pale yellow color, Flavor was all malts and the malts were bland very bland. Beer smelled of malts too. kind of disappointing.

Nothing to call home about, especially if thereís long-distance charges involved. I thought this was very neutral and dull, but maybe Iíll give it a shot next time Iím in Poland. I hear their Porter is the shiznit.
