Smells like urine. Tastes better than Budweiser.

From start to finish great creamy mouth feels. Would Recommend, highly.

Tyskie has been a staple in shaping me into the beer enthusiast i am today. the colour reminds me of the amber waters of a forbidden forest i visited in my dreams. once hitting the pallet the journey truly begins. you'll feel a range emotions, twists and turns.

10/10

Gronie is better than BA's average ratings. I Had it with salty Indian food and it did its job. The hops and bubbles cleared my palate for more food.

Review: 500ml Bottle of Tyskie Gronie: ABV: 5.5%

Nice big brown looking bottle that is a 500 ml bottle, and not the usual 300ml sized one can get, which is all good, that bit more to drink! Like the striking label, which apparently depicts the royal crown of Polish King, John III Sobieski, born in 1629, the same year the brewery was founded.

Based on the original recipe all those years ago.

Head big on pour, a huge white head. Golden clear colour.

Head reduces in size but maintains.

Bit of carbonation. Not a bad looking beer.

Get a lot in the bottle!

Lovely smell although a bit tinty and stringent, of light citrus.

Bit soapy on initial taste, a very industrial taste.

Hoppy and too sweet at start. Bit sickly. Not nice.

Creamy mouth feels.

Ok not really enjoying this. Tasty but not nice flavours. Manageable, just about!

Gave me a bit of a head the next day which I didn’t want or need! Like an angry uncle!!

Will the Polish drink any old shit? Will pass on this in the future, disappointing………..

Pours clear deep straw with a low rocky head that did leave some lace. Nose is fresh grain, hay, very light citrus...pleasant for style. Flavor very light malt, watery, but no off flavors. Mouthfeel light and a bit rough. Overall, drinkable for pounding a few in E. Europe but not exactly enjoyable.

6/18/17 (Chicago). 500 ML Bottle, best before 4/11/16, poured into large lager glass. Slightly dark golden pour, minimal white head and lacing. Strong malt, hops and bread aroma. Taste match aroma, crisp and clean. Medium carbonation, solid mouth feel, felt good drinking this beer. Overall good offering.

Tyskie Gronie is a Polish beer that is golden in colour with a decent white head.

This beer came in a 500ml bottle and the abv is 5.3%.

The smell is grain and white bread, but all quite subdued.

The taste is also grain and white bread, with a faint bitterness from the hops.

The beer is light to medium bodied.

The finish is dry and refreshing.

I've certainly had more flavourful Pilsners, beers that have a sweeter flavour and a stronger yeast profile, but nonetheless I enjoyed this and would give it an A Grade. I think the lowest one could go is B+.

S: medium spicy floral hop aroma with light grains and medium low pale light malt aromas.

L: brilliant gold under a small white cap with moderate retention supported by streams of bubbles rushing to the surface.

T: A surprisingly creamy start delivers medium light malt flavors seasoned with medium floral hops and balanced by medium hop bitterness. It has a faint apple taste and a slight sweetness up front but finishes dry and crisp.

F: moderately lingering aftertaste with faint apple, grain and mild bitterness.
