Tyskie Brewery's Pale Lager

It's reassuring that you are relieved when you're reviewing a beer it's only 5.6% ABV, which is the case when you go on a hard bender of Polish beers. This pale lager is in direct competition with Poland's largest beer Zyweic. This has a crisper, more refreshing taste yet a but of a different after taste, that isn't necessarily bad, just necessarily different. The crown on the label is in regard to King Sobiesky, the first king of Poland to never sit on this throne sober, or something like that. He might have been born the same year as the beer was first brewed. But that story makes less sense because babies can't even drink that much; so why name a dumb baby after your beer. That baby did end up growing a wicked mustache (not seen on label). I clicked on a link of his wife, figuring she was really hot, but I guess King Soberesky wasn't so sober when he married her. Apparently she was a great cook though, receiving the highest honor from Emerial Lagasse in 1781 during the French Revolution...or something like that. She also kept a very clean castle and later invented the first vacuum cleaner using her maiden name, Hoover...or something like that.

Drinkability: 5/10
Taste : 6/10
Value: 6/10

Overall: 5.7/10
