1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Date tasted: July 12, 2013... Glassware: Baltika stange... Occasion: waiting for Matt and Jerry to arrive to begin the golf weekend....Appearance: pale, sallow golden body; large bubbles collect and release for the glass’s bottom; frothy, soupy uneven white head that leaves uneven tracings... Aroma: odd, pungent doughy malts leave a locker room funk in the nostrils; not thee fresh pilsner hops hoped for... Palate: oily, almost buttery consistency with minimal presence at the teeth; drinkable, yes--this could be a backyard barbecue accompaniment ...Taste: a rather nondescript lager, with little profile and discussable points; almost perfectly rinsing the mouth... Overall: being a parishioner of a Polish church, the Zywiec is a presence at adult functions for sure; the bottle trumpets itself as Poland’s #1 beer, but unfortunately Budweiser does similarly in America, and the parallel may be fitting...not bright or crisp, not refreshing enough to garner future interest, this beer files in behind many better, more engaging lagers...

Super typical lager sold in Poland. It’s not untasty, it contains alcohol, it’s average.

Aromat słodowy z lekkim diacetylem. Piana obfita, niezbyt trwała. W smaku słód, woda, bardzo delikatna goryczka. Typowy koncernowy lager, da się wypić

On tap at pub in Sopot. Pours clear golden with a white head. Grainy and malty aroma. Taste is bittersweet. Refreshing lager.

Bottle. Quite a dark bronze. Very malty, with just a little hop bitterness. Need to drink it cold to prevent the bad commercial lagers coming through, but enjoyable enough with a Polish meal of pork snitzel, mash potato, cabbage and a cucumber/yoghurt salad.

50 cl bottle from Systembolaget. The aroma is fresh but very faint. Thin mouth feel. Watery. Quite pleasant aftertaste. "Buttery" and malty. Fresh. Weak finish, almost no bitterness. Overall a pretty "clean" lager. No off-flavors or anything, but unfortunately not very interesting.

Can, pours golden, clear. Aroma of cereal, corn, malts. Taste: water with corn-like sweetness, no bitterness at all. An average, standard euro lager.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bottle into a New Belgium 2016 tulip glass. Pours yellow gold with head and lace. Aroma of amber malts, slight hay. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of amber malt, light grains, light hops, honey, minerals, frosted bundt cake. Overall light, sweet, easy drinking...some off notes but certainly not bad for the style.
