Brewed by Tyskie Browary (Asahi)
Style: Euro Pale Lager
Tyskie is a Polish beer, coming from the the town of Tychy in Upper Silesia, in the south east of the country. The beer has won numerous international awards and is the number one beer brand in Poland, and due to the mass exodus of the natives living and working all over Europe, the beer is pretty much available to buy anywhere there is a large population of Poles.
Don’t mind the Polish influx this side of the world, nice looking woman, bloody hard working folk and nice of them to introduce us to some of their beers too.
The brewery in Tychy is one of the oldest in Europe, from 1629, with beer produced continuously for almost 400 years. Originally in German control, it took a while before it was in actual Polish hands, what with the Wars and all against their neighbours, and that’s where it has remained since………..albeit In 2016 the Japanese group, Asahi Group Holdings, acquired the brand from Anheuser-Busch InBev.
The main brands are Tyskie Gronie (a 5.5% pale lager) and Książęce Tyskie (5.7% classic lager) premium beers.
Review: 500ml Bottle of Tyskie Gronie: ABV: 5.5%
Nice big brown looking bottle that is a 500 ml bottle, and not the usual 300ml sized one can get, which is all good, that bit more to drink! Like the striking label, which apparently depicts the royal crown of Polish King, John III Sobieski, born in 1629, the same year the brewery was founded.
Based on the original recipe all those years ago.
Head big on pour, a huge white head. Golden clear colour.
Head reduces in size but maintains.
Bit of carbonation. Not a bad looking beer.
Get a lot in the bottle!
Lovely smell although a bit tinty and stringent, of light citrus.
Bit soapy on initial taste, a very industrial taste.
Hoppy and too sweet at start. Bit sickly. Not nice.
Creamy mouth feels.
Ok not really enjoying this. Tasty but not nice flavours. Manageable, just about!
Gave me a bit of a head the next day which I didn’t want or need! Like an angry uncle!!
Will the Polish drink any old shit? Will pass on this in the future, disappointing………..
