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...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not an overly impressive, just a shade below average, colour is fine, head retention is good, mildly hoppy flavour but somehow lacking in personality. Nothing bad, but nothing special.

Bottle. Clear light gold pour with a very small white head. Cereal grains, slightly sweet. Not bad at all for the style.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Harsh, cereal taste. Very macro lager. Not thinking of anything specifically similar, so there should be some appeal, however, nothing special or better than Bud/PBR. Solid lager shipped around the world.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle poured a golden color with a thin cap of white head that fizzled off. Aroma has sweetness, malt, and corn. Mouth feel is fairly full for a lager and the carbonation on the lower side. Flavor is really sweet and malted, corn, with a lingering finish.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber colour. A strong lager at 6.5% - but quite drinkable. Perhaps a beer to get punchy by?
