Tyskie

Posted: January 1, 2011 in Euro Pale Lager, Reviews, Tyskie Browary Ksiazece

I used to drink this beer about five years ago. I used to be friends with a girl from Poland, and she would bring over all sorts of Polish beers. I remember this one because it used to go down pretty easily. This was also the time that I knew nothing about beer and Miller Lite was my brew of choice. I know, not saying much. So, I’m going to see if my tastes have changed over time.

ABV: 5.6%

Style: Euro Pale Lager

Trivia: According to wikipedia, “Kompania Piwowarska (which in Polish means ‘Brewing Company’) is a brewing company established in Poland in 1999 as a result of the merger of two SABMiller owned Polish breweries, the Lech brewery in Poznań, and the Tyskie Górny Śląsk brewery in Tychy. The company also owns the Dojlidy Brewery. The three breweries have a total capacity of 15.1 million hectolitres. SABMiller purchased a majority share in the Lech and Tyskie breweries in 1995. Kompania Piwowarska currently controls 45% of the Polish beer market.”

Random: This is another selection from the mixed import pack that my father gave me from Costco.

This brew poured with a one finger white head that dissipated rather quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a straw yellow color with lots of carbonation. There are very mild hints of bitterness on the nose and not much else. It pretty much smells exactly like a macro. The first thing on the taste is lots of carbonation. This is followed by a very mild bitterness. The carbonation is decently prickly. The finish is insanely quick and unremarkable. This goes down quick and easy without much flavor, just like a macro. This is a little better than a macro, but not much. A definitely under flavored lawnmower beer. I would definitely choose something else now that I’ve developed a little more in my beer education.
