Tyskie Gronie has a thick, white head, a mostly clear, bubbly, golden appearance, with a good amount of tiny white specks, throughout, and substantial lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, honey malt, possibly, corn, and grassy hops. Taste is of the same, with an even more prominent hop bitterness and noticeable biscuit malt qualities. Mouthfeel is low-medium, and Tyskie Gronie finishes crisp and refreshing.

What can i say other than this was another clear, golden lager with little distinction. The headed faded fast. The nose was dull...very mild on the hop count. The taste again, was mild and bland. A crisp and clean mouthfeel. Drinkable but...what else? i dunno. The bottle claims that Tyskie won "Gold Medal and Grand Prix at the Brewing Industry Awards in London.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue I:

Part of the "European Sampler" from SABMiller. They must see a rise in Eastern European beers' popularity in the US by adding this to the pack.

As with just about every mass produced lager, the clarity is perfect with a bright golden yellow color. Solid head retention as two fingers of foam stay in formation for a good while. Smells of lemony hop, wet animal feed grain and mild biscuit. Crisp moderate to light body is refreshing. Soft malt with an underlying graininess throughout. Hop bitterness comes in with an herbal and watery lemon zest flavor and balances the grain for the most part. Rough husk in a thinning maltiness hits middle to end with a dry finish.

Worth a try only if you are wanting to say you have tried a beer from Poland. Other than that, it's like pretty much every other Euro Lager out there: mass produced, processed, industrial and middle of the road.

Clear yellow gold see through pour with a small head that falls quickly. Light caramel sweetness with some hop notes and grain tones.

A subtle grassy hop along with sweet caramel and crystal malts. Sweet grains round out this lager. A nice euro lager that beats out some of the more well known ones.

Mouthfeel is thin and a bit watery with tiny bubbles of carbonation. A nice brew to drink in the summer or when you're just looking for an uncomplicated lager to quench your thirst.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle with a twist off cap into a tall mug. The label has the abv (5.6%) and a "BEST BEFORE:" date. (05.28.11)

Appearance: It has a bright golden yellow color with excellent clarity. It sports a quick fading bright white head of foam. It leaves only a slick ring of lacing at the edge of the glass.

Smell: I get sweet white bready maltiness with some bready yeast and light grassy/floral hops.

Taste/Palate: Following the nose the flavor has the same mildly sweet bready malt and yeast character backed up with mild grassy and floral hop notes. It has a very clean finish with light hop bitterness quickly fading from the tongue. Its light to medium body is refreshing and easy drinking with nice balanced carbonation.

Notes: This is a well made, clean and fresh Lager beer.

Pours a clear, pale yellow body with a two finger white head. Body is alive with carbonation bubbles. Good head retention and sporadic patch lace.
Aroma is subdued, with spicy hops and faint grainy sweetness.
Mouthfeel is light to light medium, with moderately high carbonation.
Tastes like an average Euro pale lager. Crisp carbonation, bitter herbal hopping, and light malt sweetness.
Drinkability is decent, but this one fails to impress.

Single bottle from the LCBO - a brew I've walked past many a time... Bought this along with all the other Polish brews we've got (Okocim Mocne, Zywiec, Warka Strong).

The label sports a crown that looks a great deal like the king from a newspaper chess puzzle, along with some accolades from the "Brewing Industry Int'l Awards." Then again, there's another brewery who likes calling their beer "the king" that I could mention, so these statements don't impress me much.

Poured into a Czechvar fluted plisner glass. A bright golden brew, lots of visible carbonation, with a thin white head that recedes into a tiny ring rather quickly. Looks like a Euro lager, but pleasant in the glass nevertheless.

The nose doesn't have much going on at all. Mild grain, a bit of apple and funk. Smells like a pale lager. I'm stretching here...

Thin, easy to chug, a Euro lager in its simplest form. Opens sweet, but finishes with a dry aftertaste that reminds me a great deal of cardboard.

Thin bodied, with aggressive carbonation, this beer is making me burp a lot more than usual, and with no one around to appreciate my facial flatulence, this is not a good thing.

Drink one if you want a beer from Poland. Drink one if you want a beer that's more difficult to pronounce than it lets on. But don't expect much beyond the bare minimum.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of April 2012.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A clear golden colour with medium carbonation. Forms a small head of white foam that subsides rapidly. A weak aroma of of light malt with a sweet, solventy hint of apples. Not brilliant.

Tastes of faint malt with a background note of artificial solventy bitterness - mild but unpleasant. No hops or other flavours to be discerned. Mouthfeel is watery and prickly, with a slight oiliness. Somewhat dry and astringent. Not much aftertaste; a slight solvent-like hint.

Weak sauce. This is poor and tasteless even by macro lager standards. An unpleasant chemical note detracts even more - at least the average lager is inoffensive. Avoid.

Clear medium yellow look, white head of a half inch in hieght, decent duration -- but breaking up with cheap large bubbles exploding. Laces in sparse downward dripping strings. Alight maple syrup aroma, some glue, some slight grape suggesting bare hops. Mouthfeel is light, carbonation a bit too fizzy for me. Flavor starts out malty, some corn syrup elements, but backed up by a medicinal bitterness. Becomes flat and thinner mid mouth. Finish is a little below par, chalky and slightly unpleasant in the throat. A little more hoppy than some, average drinkability, some off things going on.

While vacationing in Rehoboth I picked up this polish brew at the liquor store from the singles for about a dollar or so. Appears a pale golden straw hue with large bubbled rather creamy textured head leaves behind some even fine lacing after dwindling slowly down the edges of my pint. Aroma has a mild skunky dose of hops that fits the Euro pale lager style quite well to offset the hops come some cereal sweetness blended with a cooked veggies tone. Flavor contains mild bitterness and more of that characteristic skunk not too much green bottled gone wild skunk but the edge is there along with this comes mild lemongrass blended with hints of light toasted malts and corn/rice adjuncts in there as well. Mouthfeel is light moderate factory made carbonation does tickle the back of the throat a bit, but smooth and unihibited for the most part. Drinkability is decent but not a brew I'm dying to try again, solid for a Euro pale definitely refreshing I wouldn't turn it down if offered.
