look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Presentation: Half litre brown glass bottle that looks just like BA Avatar, with the addition of a colorful green and yellow crown cap which has the words “Lomza, Jasne Ze Naszei”. Listed at 6.2% with no Freshness Date.

Appearance: Clear golden body. Soft dirty white head has good staying power, it drops to a finger thick cap but it does last the whole ride. Spritzy carbonation with a milky look when agitated. Minimal lacing.

Nose: Light sweaty bread nose, barely scrapes a clean feel but it doesn’t offend. Minimal odors.

Taste: Forced malts have a sweetness that feels a tad corny. Clean feel throughout but it has a definitive East European profile. Mild hops work extremely hard to fight past the sweet malts and soft doughy corn middle. Finishes with a little bit of everything but not much of anything.

Mouthfeel: Chilled it feels clean, short of crisp but as it warms it develops a delicate corn syrup softness in the back end.

Drinkability: Above average feel. I’m not sure I can say that this feels like it has the clicks that back up the 6.2%.

Overall: Not that bad actually, I confess that I expected much worse from this one. But it is a very average brew nonetheless.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours pale yellow, crystal clear, with a light soapy head of about 1/4" or so. Head dissipates very quickly to a thin film and there was very little lacing.

S: Smells a bit like a slightly maltier version of a typical American macro. Fairly balanced pale malts and light hops.

T&M: Light body and texture with a slightly malty edge over the hops, though I would still consider this to be moderately dry. The brew sits well on the tongue but tends to go a little watery at the finish leaving you with a thin bit of citrus hops that vanish quickly at the linger. Carbonation is a little lighter than you might expect, allowing for a texture that seems a little more refined than perhaps it really is.

D: Enjoyable and thirst quenching without being heavy. Light but still has some flavor. Not so much malt that it is sweet but enough to let you know that it's there. Not bad.

Pale gold. A deliberate pour yielded a creamy poufy head that laced very nicely. Somewhat fake aroma, gives impression of corn, syrup, extract. Like it's from a kit bought at Walmart. The beer actually tastes better than it smells; a very sweet, sugary malt profile coupled with wispy hops that are almost not even there. The taste is fake, but not unpleasant and certainly does not have that chemical sensation that so many cheap US beers have. Once you are accustomed to the "fake" taste (about half the glass) it becomes a very likeable, malty lager. Very mild, smooth mouthfeel, although maybe I coaxed the head too far during the pour. Like a budget helles with some corners cut, that packs a punch (6.2%). Without the hops, I might raise issue with it even being described as a pilsner, but now with the new BA style parameters set in place, that is an entirely different issue.

A pretty pale golden beer that has a sadly vanishing thin head. I expected very little from this beer, but was actually pleasantly surprised with the crisp, yeasty flavor.

Lots of carbination... it seems like it might be a nice brew served cold on a hot summer day.

Won't make my regular line-up, but since it's a cheap and widely available neighborhood staple here at the Northern tip of Brooklyn, I'm happy to report that Lomza rates slightly higher than most American macro-lagers.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Wyborowe is an average German Lager that struggles for some identity to make it memorable.

A solid straw colored beer holds a firm white head that laces lightly and retains well. A standard look.

The beer gives a crisp malt flavor of crackers and pilsner grain. Acidity gives impressions of lemons, tart apples, and accents hop bitterness. Noble hop aroma and flavor works well to balance the beer and contribute complex spiciness, floral, and earthy notes along the way.

Crisp, clean, and refreshing. Sweet at first but the beer fades into a soothing dryness and light hop, acid, and astringent bite in the end.

A pretty average beer.

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.

Half-liter brown bottle. Pours a slightly hazed pale straw color with no real head to speak of, dies as quickly as a macro. Bready, malty aromas, and a light alcohol-infused fruitiness. Malty, rich and strong with an extremely tamed bitterness in the finish from some low-alpha hops. Pretty boring but not bad. Needs a little more depth to be noteworthy. Carbonation is decent despite the lack of head on the initial pour. An average export-type lager, it has a "malt liquor light" kind of feel.
