Beer Reveiw #19
Euro Pale Ale
Appearance: Poured into a glass it forms a nice head and
that dissipates down to a thin ring. The beer
itself is a brilliant gold and very clear. I smell
bread and yeast, however my wife smells citrus
Taste: At first I taste the citrus that my wife smelled, like the
beer was sprayed with a lemon wedge. The citrus
gives way to a bready beer that reminds me of
Mouthfeel: It is a very active bubbles that are soft and mild. The beer is nice on
the tongue and finishes a little dry. As it finishes the beer is just a little
bitter, but it isn't overpowering.
Beer Type: Euro Pale Ale are meant to be about 4-6% alc/vol, have moderate
bitterness, be sweet and have hop flavor. Tyskie is moderatly bitter
sweet, and falls in the alcohol range.
Drinkability: First off this is a Polish beer, and is decently priced for an import.
I don't find it overly refreshing, or interesting. However it does cross
another country off the list, its just not a beer to write home about.
Scoring 16/25 Slightly better than average. It would be one I would recommend
to give a try to see if it is something you would enjoy.
