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.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2007 Excitedly cracking the cap of my first Romanian...only to find itís Belgian. Sort of. Sweet grassy aroma with hints of vegetable and bile. Probably the most shockingly popcorn flavoured beer Iíve tried. Lingers with a ridiculous cornflake flavour. Mercifully shared most of it with the carpet. A bad beer, but quite a pleasant drink.

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.

piscator34 (2181) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 9, 2007
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".

Can version. The only reason Iíve even been exposed to this beer was because my best friend went to Romania and brought back some of their local stuff thatís probably not available in the states. So while this wonít be too informative in making a decision in buying it stateside, if you ever make it to Romania then you will know what to avoid (or try if you want to see for yourself). The pour out of the can was incredibly foamy with a typical blonde ale look. Lots of carbonation, a very clear yellowish color with little aroma. At first taste, I had to make sure my tongue was working because quite frankly there was nothing registering. Then after a second mouthful, I could taste a slight grainyness to it that was not pleasant. Then an awful chemical taste that was reminiscent of Budweiser or Miller. Then it hit me. This cold sweat started to break out. I was being optimistic and rationalized that it was something other than the beer (same friend gave his dad Oranjeboom and subsequently got gout...what a son). I was wondering if the formaldahyde like chemical taste was causing this sweat. It had me worried so as I got up and walked to the sink to pour out this garbage, I had to stop and remember that my best bud got this for me, so I had to do an about-face and stomach the rest. It did not get any better, but it didnít get any worse either which was weird. Anyways, I guess the moral to the story is that if you find yourself in Romania you might want to avoid this one, but if your best friend gets it for you just grin and bear it."

golden, fruitty flavour, bitter enough for whom likes a masculin beer, overall a clean, good lager beer

Golden with minimal head. Some hops can be detected upon first pour, then itís gone. Slightly malty aroma with a touch of ripe apples. Bit of fruity taste with sharp tannines. Quite thin body. Average (international) pale lager.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Straightforward golden colour with a moderate head. Decent Pilsener with a somewhat metallic edge. "Bere de calitate" - Quality beer -the label reads. Now now.... Easy does it. Apparently the sponsor of the national Romanian soccer team, which may explain their lack of results in recent years. 030803
