Tasteless Tyskie

I went to a Thatcher funeral party yesterday. The choice of beer was Stella or the Polish lager Tyskie.

As I've said before, I don't mind Stella. It has a smack of hops that gives it the bitterness you expect in a Pils. I hadn't drunk Tyskie before.

I can't imagine what someone asked to describe the taste of Tyskie - like the beer experts at the Brewing Industry International Awards in 2002 who gave it their Gold Medal and Grand Prix - would writeIt's not spit-it-out-of-your-mouth unpleasant, it's just completely tasteless. It literally has no taste. Yet again you're left wondering whether anyone actually drinks stuff like this and positively enjoys it.


  1. IME its direct competitors Zywiec and Lech have slightly more flavour.

  2. Tasteless - like someone who celebrates another's death with a party. You might try reading John Donne's Meditation XVII one day.

    1. Chap, for me it was more about remembering her victims, of which there are many.
