5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
It’s a really good beer for Moldova ! It’s the best one I’ve tasted here since I came here few years ago. In comparison with turkish chemical Chisinau beer thtat’s much much better. Even turkish chemical beer has about 90 % on the market in Moldova, people still look for much natural Bocikovoe beer in Moldova which is hard to find. It’s because turkish "bakshish" is much hire on the market here and turkish bought actually the hole moldovian beer market, promoting really chemical gmo beer in the east european poor country. Bocikovoe is a natural, organic beer. It is a really nice beer, a nice blend of malt and hops. Pale malts, german hops. Not overly complicated, but still nice. T: taste is mostly grainy. With a good dose of grapefruit hops and grapefruit bitterness. Try it too!

Bottle from Dorin with thanks! Country #115. Pours a pale golden colour with a good sized white head. Aroma of grain, yeast and caramel. Light sweetness. Body is fairly thin but with a very nice, smooth, if slightly oily texture. Carbonation fairly soft. Light bitterness to finish. Enjoyed this very much.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
«Бочковое Живое» появилось на свет примерно в конце мая/начале июня этого года в связке с другой бэлцкой новинкой – «Жигулевским Blondă», но повстречалось оно мне впервые только на прошлой неделе. Вкус приятный, мягкий, дрожжевой... Пиво из тех, которые принято называть просто «пивом».

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden color with small head that vanishes quickly.
Smell is pleasant and grainy.
Very balanced taste with nothing specific to stand out.
Medium body with high carbonation.
Overall this is a decent lager but doesn’t stand out with anything. A bit too carbonated for my taste.

500ml bottle from a trade with dnicolaescu. Pours pale yellow with a frothy white head that is gone is no time. Unpleasant grainy, buttery aroma. Taste is mainly malt. Good finish with hoppy bitterness. Not bad.
