3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from tesco. Gee alot better than expected here. Aroma gives pale grainy malt character, citrus fruits, hints of peach. Taste has the same malt character, but the hops are key, citrus fruity character with bittery grassy hops throughout. Excellent pale lager indeed!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 500ml. Pale golden colour. Aroma toffee, corn, grassy. Fairly sweet with caramel, a touch of fruit, malt and yeast. Slightly hoppy. Moderate carbonation. An enjoyable brew, but a little over-carbonated for my liking.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml Bottle from Tesco, Bicester Poured light golden colour with white head. the merest whiff of sweet malts on the nose led me onto a quite forgettable beer, I struggled to find much flavour at all, very mild, quite safe but there was a slight bitterness there, ok.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from Tesco. 4.8% Pale gold, lasting white head. Touch of cardboard on aroma, touch of lmeony hop. Some Turkish Delight flavour, not much depth of flavour or feel in mouth, bit metallic on end, but by a long way, not the worst pale lager I’ve had. It’s alright, bit empty in the middle, but fine.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Tescos. Looks like a standard eurolager, gold with a white head; aroma is musty with hay and honey; full flavoured with a burst of leafy hops and some sweetness which is well balanced; leading to a gentle bitter finish. Much better than I anticipated.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (from Tescos). Contrary to most people here I quite enjoyed this! Tasty rounded malts with a hint of honey and pleasant slightly leafy hops. Mild clean finish but quite characterful. Maybe I should get my tastebuds checked out.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2007 Excitedly cracking the cap of my first Romanian...only to find it’s Belgian. Sort of. Sweet grassy aroma with hints of vegetable and bile. Probably the most shockingly popcorn flavoured beer I’ve tried. Lingers with a ridiculous cornflake flavour. Mercifully shared most of it with the carpet. A bad beer, but quite a pleasant drink.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
50cl bot from Tesco, pale gold, thin soapy white head. Thin and watery little aroma and little flavour. Yet another bland insipid lager.

Canned Sample from my Romanian friend. Didnt notice the styrofoam taste, but it was definitely lacking.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Canned sample. Brought back from Romania from a friend of a friend. Pale yellow in colour with medium carbonation and a head that dissepates quickly. Mild grassy hop aroma with some sticky pilsner malt. Not good tasting at all: notes of minerals, chemicals, styrofoam. Harsh and drying finish. A very poorly executed "international lager".
