After being let down by a much-hyped Polish beer recently, I was a little wary of trying out the competition, but I'm glad I did. At the weekend I discovered Tyskie, which is a decent, though not very special, Polish pilsner. My real find, however, was Okocim. It's another Polish lager and has a wonderful appley tartness which is very unusual. As well as the standard lager, Okocim make strong beer called Okocim Mocne, which is even more laden with apple flavours - sweeter and fuller.
I think I need to continue my research into the beers of Poland, but it seems we have a running champion for the moment.
Franciscan Well Jameson Stout - *Origin: Ireland | Date: 2012 | ABV: 7.8% | On The Beer Nut: December 2012* It's getting warmer in the stash. 2017's summer break is not far away, I'd say....
