1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
The second beer in my Eastern European lager afternoon and as far as I can remember, my first ever Romianian beer of any sort.
Browm 50cl bottle with a BBD of 14th May 2008: it was drank on a sunny but cold Saturday in Feb 2008.
The beer was poured into my little Veltins Pilsner glass two and a half times.
Pale, clear and golden body, large white head, very little carbonisation, as in few bubbles rising to the head. The head by the way soon fell away to a thin covering and collar.
The normal 3 score for a non-smelling lager/pilsner.
Almost tasteless (like Bitburger), it is dry cardboard with K9P dripped on the make it wet. Very weak on the alcohol feel as well, the bottle claims 4.8%, it seemed more like a 3.0% to me.
This is one of the worst beers I’ve ever had and why anyone would go to the trouble of importing it into the UK is beyond me.
Avoid like the plague.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml can. Is a very pale yellow lager with medium head, low retention and almost no lacing.
Metallic aroma with a hint of harsh Romanian spring water, very little grassy hops, reinvigorating.
Surprisingly harsh malty-hop taste, considering the lack of it in the nose, same spring water, some cereals. Medium carbonation.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Mild bitterer Antrunk. Auf richtige Aromen sollte man hier nicht warten, wässrig-bitter-süßlich, hintern herum leicht metallern. Ziemlich uninteressant, das Bier wirkt mit jedem Schluck langweiliger.
Test vom 10.8.2008, Gebinde: Dose Noten: 8,4,4,5,11,4 - 4,90
