Browar Dojlidy Białystok in Poznan, Poland, is the brewer of Żubr, a pale lager that clocks in at 5.6%.  It's sold in 500mL bottles featuring a big ol' bison. It's a clear, golden brew topped by all kinds of white head.  

It has an aroma that blends sweet grains with a metallic clink.  The taste moves from sweet to bitter.  The initial flavour is sweet, fruity, and quite malty.  The finish is considerably hoppy and bitter. 

Żubr has a bigger taste than most conventional European pale lagers.  I liked this one quite a bit.  I say give it a whirl.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
