Had this one on tap at a Polish festival in Omaha and man did I enjoy it. It was a hot day and the beer couldn't have been any fresher. I bought a glass and the head curled up along the top and dripped down the outside perfectly. My first smell I noticed more hops and character than I'm used to having in a Euro Pale Lager. This beer was balanced and rich in flavors but refreshing and delicious. No skunk either. I may make this my go to EPL.

A bubbly, consistent white head with a very bright, very clear straw colour. Faint earthy hop aroma. Mouthfeel is full and dry, medium-carbonated. Taste is very light and crisp, with delicious and subtle hints of corn, green apple, hop and malt - a great balance. Vague acidity and a touch of metalicness but overall an extremely satisfying pale lager experience.

I like this beer it has a little bitter taste, It was pretty cheap at Cosco 24 pack of 16.9 oz cans for $20.99. For the money taste and alcohol content this is a winner. Better than domestic adjunct (corn,rice) for about the same price. It seams heavier than most common imports and still has a high alcohol content .

This beer is awesome from the tap in Poland. Funny though, when I bought a six pack in the US it was not as good. I love the taste and like many other beers in the area it has that common European taste to it. This beer is a lower hopped beer with just the right amount to let you know you're drinking beer, but yet not all overwhelming. Look for this beer on tap when in Poland and enjoy. Also, ask the bartender the proper way to pronounce the name. It's tricky to say correctly.

Zywiec- Poland, 1pt .09floz, Alc. 5.6% Vol.

A golden yellow beer with a soft velvety head. A pleasant hoppy flavor with fruit like overtones. A robust full-flavor, very refreshing and satisfying. Thirst quenching yet leaves you wanting more. A great beer.

This is shimmering golden beer with champaigne-like carbonation and big rocky white head that is slow to go and leaves great fractured lacing. Smell is great fresh baked bread backed by spicy noble hop and just a note of sweetness.

Man this is good. It has a slightly deeper malt taste than alot of other lagers which helps temper hop bitterness. Metallic taste is rather big here but it isn't harsh and actually kind of works. Its a little like licking a new penny. Alcohol comes out a bit toward the end. Every now and then an almost fruity taste pops up through the light sweetness. I guess this is kinda flawed and funky but its also flavorful and smooth and I like it. Mouthfeel is full-bodied and lively and I doubt this beer will last long.
