Zubr has a thick, crackling, off-white head, a bubbly, deep gold appearance, and some lacing. The aroma is of herbal white bread crust. The flavor has an even more noticeable herbal quality, with bread crust and low bitterness. Zubr has a medium body, and a crisp finish.

Bottle picked up at an off-license in Hounslow. Crisp, vibrant golden body with abundant airy head, which fades pretty quickly. Sweet cereal grain aroma carries through to taste, but actually has nice flavor, hops also have a nice tingly presence at the finish. More pils than lager.

There’s something unbalanced about this beer, but I cannot put my finger on it. It’s crisp and refreshing and stronger in alcohol than it tastes but there are some big gaps. The mouthfeel is richer as it enters the mouth and yet thin and dry on swallowing. A light citrus taste on the tongue followed by a weird bitterness on back of the tongues, throat and inside the cheeks. This is accompanied by a skunky taste in the same places. The citrus taste (not in a good way like American hops) lingers in the mouth afterwards with the skunky taste clinging to the back of the mouth. Five quid for four cans in UK. Cheap to get wrecked on but I think being wrecked on this would be pretty nasty as the taste profile would be somewhat emetogenic I would imagine.

Aroma is quite similar to a German pilsner, pretty refreshing actually and lightly hoppy, appearance is a good solid foam that looks good in the glass...there is also a good amount of colour and body.

Tastewise, certainly not unique, however this has a very crisp and natural flavour without too much heavy maltiness. Much less expensive than a typical German pilsner and a fraction of the price. The different flavour elements balance well, the crisp hoppy aftertaste is refreshing and light, dry and not too sweet.

Would certainly choose this over most other Polish pilsners, I have tried about 18 of them, this probably comes about 6th.

Also 6%, great to see a bit more strength!

Looks really yellow; small head that dissappears fast. Smells sweet, no hops. It's more bitter than you would think. The carbonation makes it feel a bit dusty. Doesn't taste too bad, but there is something really irritating in it.
