Lech green or red :)

yes i know but when ive read bolo"s post my first thought was "he must be from poland!" :)

Anyway, i was realy surprised when i noticed how much english men drink :)
I can say that they are similar to polish :) but in fact polish beer is stronger :)

They drink a lot in America too. The most popular is "Miller" and "Pabst". But now they have"Miller-lite" so you don't get too fat.

I dont like miller (maybe is not the same as in america) but english stella is a good one :)
hello    
7 Sep 2006  #34

all these "millers" and "buds" are yuck -- water + carbon gas + sugar (as they add sugar to everything they can in the us).

American beers give me a headache the day after so I steer clear - oh yes Stella is very good!

You're right. Everything has sugar. Even stuff that doesn't taste sweet has hidden sugar in it. I was surprised they add sugar to cole-slaw and BBQ's because you can't even taste it.

I prefer gin anyway....nice and refreshing and great with tonic......and none of that slimline rubbish - full fat for me thanks!

I did notice that a g n t in Poland was about the same price as in the UK

Yes, but how many different American beers have you tried? Maybe just the mass produced garbage. Need to try things like:
Impaled Ale
Long Trail Hibernator
Double Bastard Ale
Brooklyn Beer

I agree that some of Polands beer tastes better than our Budweisers, Coors and Millers, but we have hundreds more to choose from. Every state has one or a few micro brews.

...and of course the PL Vodka is absolutely the best...to get back to the topic. My homemade will be ready in a week. I can't wait because it's been over 5 mos :)

I've recently been drinking Zywiec porter. I'm starting to like these. Strong too :) I like lech Mocne. I was drinking a lot of these when I was visiting the Czarna Gora....Good stuff.

Yeah I really like that zywiec porter. I never could find it in warsaw last year though.

Really? It's easily acquired in New Jersey. Why would it be so hard to find in Poland? have you ever tried Black Boss Porter? Exceptional porter. Also may be hard to find. Brewed in Witnica...wherever that is. I couldn't even locate it on a PL map. Highly recommended. 9.4%

Oh you're in Jersey? I can tell you exactly where to get it then. Let me know if you want info.

Zywiec as 1st choice but I'd take Tyskie, too.
The ones I'm not crazy about are Okocim or polish Haineken or Lech; the last one makes me puke!
FISZ 24 | 2,117

I really though that Zwiec was the best until I tried Bosman. Have you tried this? It may only be available in the north.

I think some results could be somewhat confusing --- you guys say one beer is good, another is better. But the question is - when do you "assess" the taste of the beer? You should know 3rd beer in a row may not taste as well as the first in the day (or vice versa:).
FISZ 24 | 2,117

I usually drink only 1 type at a time. Not to confuse my taste buds.

For me the first beer on a particular day doesn't usually taste good - after 3rd or 4th (I mean - in the Polish bottles - 0.5 l, not 0.33 l or 0.25l ) - it's delicious...:).

FISZ,
I've tried Bosman. It's ok. I can get it where I live but still would stick to cold Zywiec.
I'm truely enjoying the first one on a really hot day like today - can take half glass at one time easy on day like we had today (it was 25 C - which is kind of hot for this time of a year)

or Lech; the last one makes me puke!

I find that offensive!! :) :)

Frankly speaking, I always considered Tyskie as a indigent version of Lech. :)

I used to work at Lech brewery shortly some time ago...Warka drama[

Hevelius!

I haven't seen it in stores in Poland during my last visit last year, but I remember drinking it in high school almost 10 years ago. (good times!)

it's like 8% alcohol and has a really unusual flavor.

last week I had Hevelius in the Polish restaurant in San Francisco!!!

I like Lezajsk. But the problem is I don't know which brand is even Polish anymore since many were bought by foreign beer companies.

My gf drinks beer. She also likes Warka strong. most women in Pl add juice "sok".
mono

They add juice as they think it then won't be as strong as without juice...:)
