500 ml bottle into lager glass, bottled on 12/17/2016. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, light honey, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, white bread dough, light honey, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/grassy/spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, light honey, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from lingering bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, grainy/bready, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is a good pale lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Pretty much just pure clean pilsner malt flavor, and just enough hops for balance. A nicely enjoyable offering.

A big thanks to the captain of the canship, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 16.9 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is sweet, malty. Taste is crisp, malty, some sweetness, a bit bready, highly refreshing and drinkable. feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a good choice if in the mood for a pale lager.

From a 16.9 0unce can. Pours clear gold with three fingers of white head that leaves rather quickly. Smell was mild malts maybe a bit of grassy or herbal hop aroma. Taste is white bread malts with a very minor herbal hop presence. The mouthfeel is close to medium with a good level of carbonation. Overall a good Euro lager. Nothing outstanding here but enjoyable. Note: My can said 6%abv not 6.2 %. Not a beer I will look for but would enjoy if offered.

One of the really cool things about a visit to Chicago is the opportunity to visit one of the area Binny's to scour around for additions to The CANQuest (tm). I prefer their South Loop location, especially given its proximity to Union Station, plus it holds a tap room. They also have a dizzying selection of 500 ml European CANs in shrink-wrapped 4-packs and this came out of one of them.

From the CAN: "Lomza Brewery [-] Product of Poland"; "Premium Beer"; "Imported". Also, I really liked the colors and their juxtaposition on the CAN. Green, gold, scarlet and white as well as a male/female couple in traditional garb with her filling his mug with beer from a pot.

I have really been digging some of these Euro beers and so I began this one with a Crack! and inverted Glug. This produced two foamy, fizzy fingers of French Vanilla-colored head with moderate retention. Color was Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 -5) with button brightness and so the Gelt Gang of Midas, Croesus and Mammon stopped in for a drink. Nose was very malty sweet with a hint of grassy Noble hops. The taste was sort of odd, like the malt backbone was somehow getting in the way of the hops, which were trying to assert themselves. While I was CANtemplating this CANundrum, beautiful lacing began to appear and form. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was more malty and sweet than grassy and hoppy, but it just did not seem like it was melding all that well. It might be the style, as I prefer Pilsners, where this seemed to be one rung below them. It finished semi-sweet, but it just seemed like it was straddling an unnecessary fence. I reiterate that I would have preferred a Pilsner. This style lacks punch, Ooomph, etc.

Łomża Wyborowe has a sort of thin, fizzy, quickly-dissipating white head, a deep, almost orange-gold, highly bubbly appearance, and essentially no lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, bold, and honey-like barley malt and bread. Taste is of the same, with white bread crust, mild hop bitterness, and yeast. Mouthfeel is medium, and Łomża Wyborowe finishes crisp, bold, full-flavored, easy drinking, and refreshing.

Pours a hazy light orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, frosted corn flake, and slight skunk aromas. Taste is much the same with frosted corn flake and honey flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is quite sweet and a bit skunky, but that pretty much dissipates as the beer warms up.

Serving type: bottle.

Pale gold, rising carb trails, thin compact layer of foam.
Clean grainy Pilsner malt and grassy noble hop aroma.

Taste is similarly clean and grassy. Light bodied and easy on the carb.
Somewhat watery but refreshing, simple and understated. Easy drinking, no off flavors. Overall it's pretty decent, would drink again under the right circumstances.

This one wasn't quite as good as another Polish beer I've tried, but mainly because it's a typical pale lager, which isn't a terribly exciting style in the first place. It's perfectly fine, though. Good flavor for the style, though I probably should have gotten a darker beer given the weather and the food I ate with it. Compares well to Stella and Harp.
