1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Plastic bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Stas. Hazy golden with no head. Aroma of cardboard, honey. Sweetish flavor with cardboard, honey. Light-bodied, flat. Seems like something went wrong with this bottle - very oxidized and lifeless.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle in Batumi (from notes). Pours pale yellow with small foamy white head that dissipated quickly, doughy aroma, slightly sweet taste, medium carbonation, thin body, weak and watery finish. Not a great beer, another generic lager.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
"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!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
