look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Best before: 10/10/15. 5.2% ABV per the label.

Pours a clear light yellow 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 malt, grain, earth, grass, and slight corn flake aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, corn flake, earth, and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable, but fairly boring all around.

Serving type: can.

Boy was I surprised by how others reviewed this beer! As usual my recent, good experience with this brew was completely unexpected. What I mean is that I picked this up by chance, and was pleasantly surprised by its quality. Most other Polish beers I have tried in the past I didn't like as I feel beers with high ABV contents over 6%< are just to strong to be beer! If I wanted a glass of *hoppy* wine I'd ask for it!

Not to much into wine..

First of all I purchased a 4 pack of 16.9 ounce cans for a mere $4.55..and if you do the math, the cost per ounce is CHEAPER then your typical U.S.domestic swill.

Value you me is important, especially in today's economy. I am beginning to only buy my beer in these large cans as not only does it represent good value, but it completely removes the chance of light damage. Every beer I have had this way has been exceedingly fresh tasting. In addition, I get to properly drink beer out of a 20 oz. imperial pint glass.

This beer is extremely crisp and fresh tasting. Yes, it's another example of a Euro-style lager, but it's unique. The flavor isn't overwhelming, but it's also not overpowering either. Very well balanced with an exceptionally clean, yet flavorful aftertaste.

This is just a good quality lager style brew that doesn't try hard to do anything but just taste like GOOD *beer*, and with it's 5.1% ABV, allows you to drink more then just a couple enjoying its flavor without getting hammered!

11.2 oz bottle, just past it's due date, should be ok.

Pours into my Stawski mug a honey-golden color with a big bright white head, slightly soapy looking, which quickly recedes with not much lacing.

It has a distinct smell, with a big hit of pale malts that are lightly sweet and some herbal, medicinal hops as well.

The taste is decently sweet with a mild bitter hop bite. It is pretty standard.

The mouthfeel is a bit off, that could be due to the age.

Overall it is a run of the mill Polish pale lager, not bad but not amazing.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. The pour is a golden yellow with miniml amount of white foam.

Smell is light malt with hints of grain/cereal.

Taste is clean, crisp, with a light corn taste. A touch watery. God/average carbonation in the mouthfeel.

Very drinkable tough - not the best taste, but still enjoyable.

BBD: 3.17.2010

Brilliant gold, a finger of standard foam results from a good pour. It fades too quickly, leaving the orange glinting liquid to look more like cider than beer. No lace.

Beery aroma, husky grains with an initial skunk that blew off quickly. Vague malty sweetness and crisp, dry finish. A little paper and apple bite. This is a session beer of course, and it's very snappy and dry as a euro pils should be. "Rich and full taste" on the label is a bit of a stretch, but it's decent.

Light but crisp carbonation, very light and refreshing, just not big on flavor. Simple and straightforward, clean with no off flavors. This would make a decent backyard bbq party beer, but it's nothing too exciting.

It appears there's a duplicate listing for this beer, as they were bought out by Zywiec/Heineken at some point. My bottle is identical to the one pictured, it just says "product of Grupa Zywiec" on the back label.

Classic amber with crystalline clarity and several streams of lazily rising bubbles. The better than acceptable looking crown is dingy ivory in color and is no slouch when it comes to the laying down of lace. I've seen better... and worse.

The nose is par for the Euro pale lager course. Actually, it's cleaner than most, with almost none of the nastiness that beer of this style usually delivers. Untoasted cereal grains are complemented by a modest amount of grassy hoppiness. A little citrusiness would have been good.

There are no surprises on the taste buds. EB tastes like hundreds of other pale lagers from Europe. It's still better and more drinkable than the most popular beer in this country, but then what isn't?

Barley malt adds very little of substance. Hops add grassy flavor and a bit more bitterness than is typical. Unfortunately, it all adds up to by-the-numbers pale lager that is instantly forgettable. A finish that leans toward crisp keeps the beer drinkable and means that it should pair decently well with food. Solo, it doesn't hold up.

The body/mouthfeel stays well away from watery and deserves an above average score as a result. Carbonation is on the sparkly side, which helps add mouth interest to a flavor profile that's deficient in that department.

EB Natural Premium Quality Beer is of roughly the same quality as Hevelius Classic, which is the only other beer that I've had from this brewery. It might be the best thing since sliced bread in Poland, but it isn't worth your time or your money given what else is available in this country.

A: Golden but a bit darker than Bud. Not much head

S: Smells a bit bready but it is inviting

T: again like the smell, a bit of bread, a bit nutty. Not a half bad change of pace from American macro lager.

M: Crisp and clean. a bit of a thick feeling when all said and done that is not felt at the start.

D: This has a odd after taste that when I Finnish of the big bottle I want a change of pace. Something to try but maybe not a full time drink.

Thanks to Adam K at my work for hooking me up with his hometown beer.

Pours a good clear straw yello hue. Very little head to no head right after the pour and two small columns of bubbles rising to the top of the brew. The hops give off notes of damp grass mixed with corny malts and adjuncts and mabe a little homemade white bread. The start of the flavor profile is old grass amidst a small basebal field. Hints of earth and maybe some cornbread. The finish is a lingering adjunct bitterness. Palate is a thn bready malt with some earthy hops. Could maybe have three in one evening before I start looking for something else.

Pours a nice golden color. Nice white head with decent retention,and a good lace. Lots of bubbles.Smell is of malt, and a hint of honey. Body is thin, and carbonated. Taste is sweet,with a hint of hops throughout. Looks better than it tastes.Worth a try, but not great.

Bottle: Poured a golden color lager with a medium head that disappeared a tad too quickly. Aroma of malt with some very subtle sweet floral notes. Taste is quite bland with some average sweet malt and no hops that are easily distinguishable. I can’t believe that this is a pilsner – I would never had guess from drinking this below average beer.

Pours transparent yellow with a foamy white head that after a short while becomes barely a few bubbles - hardly even a lace.
Nothing offensive in the smell. Faint, but clean. Some malty character in the nose.
The taste is very average for a euro-lager. Typical euro-lager - nothing powerful or outstanding. Some hop taste. A bit on the sweet side.
The mouthfeel clean and refreshing, but nothing beyond that.
It is drinkable - even refreshing, but nothing that makes me want to have more except maybe as a refreshing drink on a hot day, but there are so many other beers that would do the same with more character and flavor.
Something in its defense is that I have had this on a few occasions and have never run across one that had any of the skunkiness of many other macro euro-lagers. And, at least it is in a brown bottle.

A boring export lager. Pours out to a light golden color with a head of cotton like white foam. Aromas of hay and grass. Taste was uneventful; light malts, dirt, grain, watery hops. Mouthfeel was a step above carbonated water. Not much going on, and it shows. Drinkability is fair. This isn't anything worth seeking out, but if you're a fan of the style, it may be your ticket.

Pours bright gold with a white patchy head and great lace trails. The aroma is malty with a firm biscuity character, herbal hops are quite noticeable as well. The taste is hoppier then I expected. I find the Polish lagers Ive tried underwhelming, especially in the hop department. This beer is different, there plenty of perfumey hop aroma and brassy bitterness. Malt flavors are firm and grainy, very nice. The mouthfeel is full and prickled with copious carbonation. The finish is long and surprisingly bitter.

This is no hop bomb. Its not even as hoppy as a decent German Pils. That being said, its got actual hop flavor, and good hop flavor. Its a stellar Euro Lager for this reason alone.

Poured from a bottle with a expiry date of May, 06

Looks like a pretty standard lager, a bright yellow with some evident lacing. Smell is very organic, fresh and natural, Pretty nice. Taste is clean with evidence of an adjunct, for some reason I think it's oats but i could be wrong. It's pretty smooth going down and pretty easy to drink. This is a nice beer, worth having again.

It's Polish beer night and EB is first up. A very pale lager (pils?) that pours with fluffy white head that quickly diminshes to some soapy-looking bubbles. The aroma is of cereal grains with a dash of spicy, herbal hops. This is a very light-bodied beer with a fairly crisp maltiness up front which fades quickly and turns lightly bitter metallic finish. A crisp, light lager, that is refreshing enough and quite cheap.

I’ve found that most Polish lagers have a decidedly sweet, dough-like quality. This one stick solidly with that pattern. Smells very much like an everyday euro-lager…hops, grassiness, a little malt, a touch of sulfur. It’s clear and golden with a good, attractive white head. The taste is bready and sweet in the front, with a good dose of bittering hops in the hind-taste for balance. It’s nothing spectacular, but it’s drinkable and certainly fits the mold.
