Presented in a 500ml bottle that my brother brought back with him after a trip to Switzerland. Back label has a "best before" date of 08.19.08 at the bottom. Poured into an imperial pint glass.
Has a clear yellow color, hearty carbonation, and a frothy bright white head that displayed nice retentive quality and left a smattering of lace in it's wake.
The nose had a nice aroma of sweet grains, some slight caramel notes and a hint of grassy, citrusy hops. Still, a big jump over some other Euro lagers I've had the misfortune to come across.
The taste is actually pretty nice; starts off with a decent level of hay-like malts with a touch of caramel sweetness before finishing up with a muted grassy citric hops tang that's an order of magnitude above most Euro pale lagers I've had. The feel was light, crisp and clean; nicely refreshing on a near 90°F day.
Overall, I found myself enjoying Tyskie Gronie. It had way more complexity in aroma and taste than I expected. I found myself surprised to see it listed as a Euro pale lager (aka: Euro piss beer). No complaints here.

probably underrated as the imports go. yeah its a classic yellow beer, best consumed as a classy alternative to a natty ice during the college years, but serviceable in other contexts, especially a food one. blonde and fizzy, slightly skunked, but refreshing just the same. metallic and stale, but maybe still a little too good to throw it in a beer pong cup. its brightly carbonated and medium in body for a light lager. one of those imports you dont see too much anymore, but it probably better than most of whats out there, despite the weird flavors and old lager yeast. polish beer certainly can get a whole lot better than this, but in a party context, it works. a lot like a skunky becks or something, german more than anything, but nothing special obviously. im sure on tap where its made its a whole lot better...
