None of these is British BTW

And none of these brands sold in the UK are made abroad, and funnily enough none of the UK versions taste anything like the real ones made in their home countries.

Never seen these in cans before

the beer of chioce for modern day street corner drinkers

Best polish beer, especially in the Bootle.

Good beer, but not the best price, can get 8 cans for £6 around here from any polish or local booze shop!

Thats the most sh**ty polish beer, I prefer to pay 1.20 for a can of Okocim Mocne or Warka Strong.

I havent tried Zywiec for couple years, but im little bit curious if it still tastes like water with shampoo or other soapy detergent.

Good deal, one of the best polish big beer brands. Hot.

The influx of Polish beer into the UK over recent years is a breath of fresh air I must say.

Quality brews like Lech, Zubr, Tyskie, Tatra, Okocim, Warka and Zywiec are far superior to the "brewed under license in the UK" pish that we have had to endure.

I have a couple of cans of Perla (7.6% abv) chilling in the fridge for later.

Do treat with respect though, these badboys are by no means for the lighthearted and certainly not suitable for a session... well, that's depending on your tolerance I suppose.

I am not sure how you've based your opinion here - Zywiec is a decent and robust beer that is far from the description you've posted above.

Warka Strong and any "mocna" style beer are intense beers that really aren't any comparision to the beer in the OP - It's like comparing Sherry with Shiraz.

Must admit that surprisingly, I had never come across Perla until yesterday - bought them in a specialist supermarket in Hemel Hempstead.

99p a can is outstanding value IMO.

If buying polish beers, check first if it is really polish beer, and not "brewed in UK under licence". "Brewed in UK" versions of polish beers are much weaker than polish versions, and they all taste same. OK maybe Warka Strong is not best quality beer, but i dont think You could say the same about new Okocim Mocny Premium.
In my opinion beers like Okocim Mocny, or very decent, mentioned before Perla have full, deep & original taste, but popular beers like Zywiec or Tyskie or just tasteless, weak urin*e, and propably you couldnt even tell the difference between those two on blind test.
BTW
Did anyone saw somewhere in the UK polish beer called "Fox" ?

Never seen Fox before... is it any good?

Most Wetherspoons now stock Lech and Zywiec by the way - usually at around £2.30 for a 500ml bottle which is also a cracking price for a pub.

Isn't most 'foreign' beer brewed by Carlsberg in their Northampton factory?

I'm not sure if this is such great value really, unless you're a big fan of Zywiec. Are they 440ml or 500ml cans?

Most off licences round here only charge £1 a bottle for polish beer, and buying them individually has the added bonus of being able to try different ones.

No Polish lager is brewed under licence. All come from Poland, where they're made in two options: for domestic market (bad quality, brought illegally to UK) and export (good). How to distinguish: export has all English description on the can/bottle, and higher price

I don't like Zywiec. In my opinion one of the worst polish beers.

However, much better than the usual british lagers surely?

everything is better than british lager **** carling or others.
personally - don't like Zywiec. it used to be good now it's overhyped. try 'Tatra Mocne' or 'Debowe Mocne' - these are strong beers. would love to get 'Perla Mocna' in Manchester area. none of polish shops around Leigh stock these

I remember trying to order a pint/0.5L of this in Poland. They laughed at me when I asked for 'zweek'. Top tip...Its pronounced 'vizich' Good stuff but like all Polish beers, Rocket fuel!

debowe mocne is fekin' awesome 7% strength and tastes lovely

closer pronounce is "zee-vietz" , and to person whose laughs about transaltions as "live stock" żywiec is name of small town where brewery is located, (same kind like black sheep ales )
my favorite is łomża export , perla and kasztelan probably not available in the UK. i dont think so is difference in quality for polish and foreign market, is many beers in Poland which are cheap and even is/was Tesco value one . But żywiec lost quality since heineken bought it , same with other breweries almost whole market is divided between heineken sabmiller and carlsberg but carlsberg green in/from Poland is better and has 5% alc. All polish beers are in sale at least in 500ml bottles/cans

This deal needs more exclamation marks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Take it this way people drink Stella and that has a horrible dirty hop. Zywiec is much better than your average popsi mclager. I drink real ale and craft beer, my favourite lager is still Harviestouns Schiehallion which beats any Euro lager/pilsner ive ever had (Sainsburys Scottish craft lager is the exact same just with a different label).

This tasted a little bit like Tyskie when i had it a few weeks ago, most polish lagers are comparable but Zywiec has a slight taste of its own which is why some people think its **** and others like it.

I wouldn't touch a 7% lager, sounds too much like tramp juice.

South Polish beer YUM YUM

HOT(_;)

Maybe the Żywiec sold in the UK is a lot better, but in Poland the rough hierarchy is, from best to worst:
Okocim -> Kasztelan -> łomża -> Lech -> Zubr -> Tatra -> EB -> Tyskie -> Żywiec
There's lots of room for debate in the middle, but anyone in Poland who doesn't like Okocim or likes Żywiec has suspect taste IMO. That's not just my opinion, that's two entirely unrelated groups of friends in different Polish cities who have come to the same conclusion.

However, if you're drinking in Poland, there are a lot of much better niepasteryzowane beers coming out of microbreweries and (some of the bigger ones too) to try. And, while I'm on the subject, in the UK there are loads of fantastic British beers to try. Admittedly, getting hold of them sometimes involves being near to bearded real ale **** in ugly pullovers playing Mornington Crescent, but that's a sacrifice I'm prepared to make for a decent pint.

I'm getting a bit off-topic, aren't I? Hot deal if you like Żywiec!
