GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Pours gold w/ a tall froth. Superb hangtime and clasic lace. Aromas of bright, spicey malts. Medium nectar w/ no residual effers at all. Dry and malty w/ a mellow bittering. The finish is bittered midly w/ no offensive nuances. This specimen is very old world but not so rustic. Good balanced flavor yet the stillness turns me away.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2009 From 99 Bottles of Federal Way, WA. Another purchase of a pale Euro-lager, solely to knock off Romania on the countries list. From the obligatory green bottle, I was poured a nicely clear and rich gold under a (surprise!) smallish white head. Aroma was faint, bit of citrus and what I guessed might be biscuit (I doubt it), but oddly, no hops. Taste was bland but not repulsive, mouthfeel a bit sharp, and finish was tolerable. By no means a good beer. Interesting label - is that Vlad the Impaler I see? That might account for the taste.

Not bad, some grain flavor,malt, some slight hop flavor on the aftertaste, bready, nothing wrong with it, just a decent east Euro brew. Bottle bought at Alpine Village,Torrance,Cal.

Light copper body, thin, but ok head, and lively, carbonated body. Crisp grain flavor with the smell of sweet corn as well. Crisp grain and corn flavor. Clean, refreshing, and decent flavor. A simple refreshing Eastern European lager.

Lowe1983 (1517) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2009
Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is of grain and some floral hops. Flavor was actually kind of interesting. Grains at first but that gives way to some spiciness, and has a slight bitter finish.

DMRz (230) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Tan clear color with a short white head. Aromas of grass, banana, and sweet malt. Taste is quite metallic, with herbal malt, white sweet corn, and a very sweet finish. I suppose I should rate this higher, since according to my Romanian friend this was quite a treat during the communist era, with people forming lines just to get this...however since I am not living under a communist regime, this beer deserves a solid 2.4. Drinkable.
