Zywiec

Zyweic – Brewed by Zyweic Brewery in….Zyweic, Poland. – 5.6% alcohol

Poland’s #1 Premium Beer

Interesting enough, reading up on the Zyweic Brewery, it is majority owned by the Dutch Heineken Group, and righfully so I suppose because I’m not a huge fan of Heineken….

My first thought when I tasted this brew was “Coors Original but in a different package”, but of I had no Coors Original to compare it to, so I’m just going to take my own word for it. It’s tasty though. No after taste (maybe slight), goes down smooth, very light, and it’s not bad, but it’s not great either. It’s an average beer. If I saw it a restaurant I may grab one, but I don’t know if I could drink a 6 pack of it (for the record, this test was done with a single 22oz. bottle).

It goes down quickly though. And speaking of Coors (I know, don’t start a sentence with ‘and’, shutup), Zyweic has a little logo that appears when its cold. Interesting…..Anyway, their Wikipedia page says it’s a pilsner, and I don’t really know the difference yet between the tastes of any of these so I’ll take their word for it. Overall, it doesn’t wow me. It’s alright, not terrible, not great. I’d drink it again, but I wouldn’t actively seek it out.

UPDATE!!

So here’s the thing. When I do these reviews, I drink it while taking notes like a little nerd on my phone (my girlfriend thinks it’s cute, bite me). I finished my notes before finishing this beer. Do NOT sleep on this beer. I bought a 22oz bottle and continued drinking it after my note taking. It’s pretty easy to drink but UNLIKE Coors, has more alcohol. Caught a quick buzz off of this one and I’m no lightweight. Definitely took me by surprise. My rating still stands tho:

Final Rating – (3 pints)
