And to think I flew all the way to Poland for a taste of Tyskie. It's okay, though: I discovered Lech while I was there. :)

Tyskie is Polish beer?!

It is manufactured by SABMiller:

and does not taste like real beer at all...

Boring pale lager. In fact, if you like Tyskie, you might as well save your money and grab a case of high life...

Holy sh*t, I just badmouthed free beer.

Get out.

I discovered Lech while I was there. :)

Shame you didn't discover Lech Pils - it's sold ""tylko w wielkopolsce" - but it is vastly, vastly superior to ordinary Lech. Really, it's what Lech should be as standard!

Tyskie is said to be No 1 beer in Poland. Not to me, I never drink it coz I don`t like lagers - too bitter.

Not "beer". Anything that has a 9 hour "brewing" process from wort to bottling is not beer.
If you want to die young - carry on.

Doug, I have not much idea about brewing beer. I only know about those giant metal tanks and the rest is completely beyond my interest. What else should I know?
Dougpol1 31 | 2,639
16 Oct 2019 #15 is a personal taste. I was being snooty - if peeps like Tyskie, that's cool too. Beer is so wonderful that paradoxically I now try not to drink during Rok Skolny, so I can enjoy it properly at my leisure in summer, watching the youth exert themselves on the beach:)

The odd Tyskie or Budwesier Budwar doesn't hurt, but are chemical in nature....Pilsner Urquel and other pilsners and pale ales are better, being lighter in alcholic content. A beer should only be strong in alcohol because it has a high volume (a high malted sugar content) Natural ingredients are the name of the game here - and ideally the beer should be non-pasteurised.

Of course ale and beer are two different things, ale being top fermentation and beer being a more wide ranging term for lagers,stouts..everything really...

And like your country kitchen, it's all in the ingredients and the care in the brewing process. Cook the selected malt(s) as a wort at 153 degrees Fahrenheit (optimum temperature for the brewing enzyme) add your hops, chuck the lot in a 20 litre plastic barrel, filled with water (must be water suited to brewing - Katowice water is from lakes and is NOT suited - Dabrowa G water is from aquifers and IS), lob in your (top fermentation) brewing yeast, slam on the lid - air tight!

If you use 2 kg pale malt for 20 litres water you get a specific gravity of about 1045, which is a meaty beer, slighty stronger than Pilsner Urquell. Not a pilsner of course - pilsner are very difficult to brew yourself - you need to bottom ferment (chance of sourness/acidity) and much longer storage times....

Store in a coolish dark place, 65 degrees F, and avoid looking at it for 10 days/2 weeks. Then bottle with half teaspoon of glucose per bottle plus finings gel.

Store for a further two weeks, then get stuck in. Miles better than this craft beer malarkey.

Tell y'all the gosh honest truth, always been a Warta Mocna man myself:-)
Advertised as having "gleboki smak". A smooth, rich taste is I suppose the best' way to translate it.
"Deep taste"?? Nahh!

Not according to Polish beer lovers!
Then again, nothing I've tasted beats bimber.

Polish beer lovers!

Polish mass produced beer is chemical rubbish Lyzko. And "moczno" is the worst of the worst. It will eventually kill the addicted drinker.

Of course ale and beer are two different things,

Yes, that is the reason of all troubles: in Polish, every such beverage is called beer - piwo. In English you have two names.

To afficianados though, ale and beer are technically not quite the same thing, paw.

Can't recall though ever learning as to the distinction between the two in Polish:-)

Ale in Polish is called beer of top fermentation.

You can't be that interested Lyzko - as the answer was in my post above. Anyway Poland doesn't have a culture of ale - because you have to store barrels at 13/14 degrees C or it wont last for more than a week.
