Sampled on 8/3/06: Pours a pale golden with a thin ring of white head. Aroma is weak, grainy and has some noble hops and a touch of sweet malt. Body starts semi-sweet and malty with a mild earthy hop balance. A drinkable, somewhat decent beer for the style.

Poured a clear pale yellow color. Grainy sweet malt aroma with some fruitiness to it. Smelled like dried light colored fruits. Malty flavor with tart fruity notes. Light body and bubbly almost tasted like a fruit soda.

Bottle. Light gold with a small off-white head. Aromas are caramel and biscuit malts with lemon. Flavours are grain, lemon, metal and pepper with sweet hay and a fairly hoppy finish. Refreshing but thin.

Well, my brother pretty much well sums most of this beer up. Here are my objective findings. Nose is slightly fruity--almost yeastly with bananas similar to several Unibroue beers. There might be honey hints in there was well. This aroma was better than expected. Slight hazy light copper color with a small off-white head. Smoked toasty flavor to start with a little sweetness in there. Very toasted burnt hopped finish. Quite unbalanced and not the most pleasant. I was expecting bland and boring, but i got muddy instead. This certainly surpassed my expectations though for 98 cents for a bomber.

"The Queen of Beers" as the label so aptly puts it. This is a brown bottle, the only one among green bottles according to my brother who purchased it to share with me. Semi-clear amber pour with a medium white head. Aroma of the syrup you find in a can of fruit cocktail. Sweet, but not over powering. This is actually enjoyable, even if the price tag reads $0.98. Dry finish, with a little bitterness. Not bad!

Slightly impressed with this - the "Queen of Beers" as the label states. Has a thin, white lacing head. Aroma - not skunky as expected - a slight bit of maltiness - but you have to sniff hard. Light orange slightly cloudy appearance. Flavor - initially dry and dusty but given time to warm up it has a bit of a sweet maltiness to it. Good mouthfeel to it. Best Georgian Lager yet!

My 800th rating -- would I get "The Queen of Beers" or would I just be kissing a frog? Well, it's in a green bottle, so there's a clue. Malty, sesame aroma, which if my eyes were closed I'd think it was a vienna or dunkel. Syrupy, musky and a bit underhopped. Very stiff souffle head. Orangey-yellow amber. Loses CO2 rapidly, but otherwise a good mouthfeel. Long, lightly tart and fruity finish.

Decent gold color, skunked nose (green bottle), head disipated quickly. Taste of adjuncts. If this is the "Queen" of beers and Budweiser is the "King" of beers, I would really hate to taste their offspring!

Bitter and unsatisfying with a somewhat harsh taste.
