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!

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.

Head: white, medium, frothy, avg. retention. Colour: straw-pale yellow, clear.

An average lager that is ok when fresh. Would be better if it wasn’t for the unpleasant grainy aroma.

Many thanks Dorin for this Beer.
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein klares goldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch getreidig süß, fast wie bei einem alkoholfreien Bier. Geschmack getreidig, leicht fruchtig süß, leicht malzig. leichte Citrus Aromen.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big fine white head that last on top of a clear golden body. Not the best aroma. Caramel malty, grainy and some vegetables. Quite ok body for an 4,2% abv lager beer. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Mild pleasant round sweetness and an ok bitterness. I can easily drink some of this. The only problem is the poor aroma. Normally the flavor is also quite bad when some vegetables shows up in the aroma. But not in this one. Well it is not any outstanding lager, but you can easily drink it. Grainy, mild malty and faint citric flavor.
