The nitro-wedge gives your beer a creamy feel with the ever-lasting head. The twist-off top doesn't require a bottle openor to consume. And now, the beer thermometor, ensuring you that your beer is served at the proper temperature. Ingenious! On to the beer:

Zywiec is a golden colored lager with some pilsner characteristics to it. The smell is a bit husky, with a hint of skunk, some lemon zest, and straw. The taste is near the median for the style, with more of a hop flavor and bitterness. Less water and more flavor would make this brew more interesting, but it's drinkable nonetheless.

Borrowing from their marketing campaign in Poland, you could say this is "Prawie jak pilsner". Translation: Almost like a pilsner.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Small head with some lacing. Not lots but enough to be respectable. Smells grainy and pleasant. No noticeable hops or herbal notes. Taste is well balanced. Somewhat sweet with a mild bitter finish. Quite a hearty and enjoyable lager flavour. Rather mild though. Quite a good pale lager at a really low price and very easy availability (most corner shops in London stock it.) Doesn't ever really disappoint and makes a better choice by far than Heineken, Stella etc.

My mark out of a hundred would be 75.
