2.58/5  rDev -16%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Tyskie Gronie...I bought a case to share with a friend for around $21 after tax. Apparently it's one of the most popular beers in Poland (not sure that's a good thing). Full disclosure: I've had a bunch of this already (not today, but in general).

Appearance is hazy gold. No head, slim rim nearly disappears after just 3-4 minutes. Carbonation bubbles. Not a lot going on in appearance. 3/5

Smells like a run-of-the-mill American lager. Vegetal, sweet adjuncts, a touch of grassiness and faint honey. 2.5/5 I'm thirsty...

First thing I notice in the taste is a fairly offensive muted graininess. After a few sips that aspect mellows out, and the taste sweetens, at least improving from the less than stellar introduction. Not a lot to talk about. There seems to be a heavier adjunct bill than a malt, and I prefer the latter. 2.5/5

Fairly balanced in the mouth. Not much hops, but there isn't much body either, so there you go, it's balanced adequately. Washes away pretty cleanly, but as it warms a little booze starts to tug at the back of the throat. 3/5

Overall: 2.5

Notes: this is a below average lager. I could name several American lagers that do the adjunct thing much better. And what's with the 5.6% ABV? That gravity is unnecessary. Why not cut it to 5%, add more malted barley and make a better brew?

3.16/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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...
