1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
I tried this beer on January 7, 2011 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent pale gold with a very thin white head. The aroma was grainy malt and some floral hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was grainy malt, and overly bitter hops.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pretty easy drinking brew, overall its quite nice, as it got warmer it started to taste extra bitter and not in a great way.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
2011-01-29. Crisp glowing pee yellow body with a small white head. Odd aroma, grainy straw, creamed corn. Flavour is odd, grassy bitterness, bit rough, muted pale malt. Average to light bodied palate. Poor. Fun fact - Romania’s Danube Delta is a World Heritage site and is the second largest delta in the whole of Europe. Bottle from LCBO, Toronto

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a blond and short foamy head. Slightly sweet and grainy malty aroma with a grassy hoppy touch. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a slightly harsh carbonation. Dry pale malt character with grainy spots; dry-ish bitter-sweet finish. Probably better than Heineken NL. 12.I.11

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Clear, pale golden to golden, smaller loose white head; light to moderate dryish pale-malty nose with a light grassy hoppy aroma; light to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, pretty light bodied; slightly lingering dryish grassy finish. Quite good, definitely better than the dutch Heineken products.......

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Medium gold with a soap sudsy head. Floral, bready and rain water aromas. Refreshing palate. Good fresh bread flavour leads to a solid hop bitterness. Standard but enjoyable.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Clear golden pour with a loose white head that doesn’t last long. Aroma is mainly of corn syrup and cardboard. Flavour is pretty much the same with added hints of grass and lemon. Thin watery mouthfeel with lots of prickly carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. Nothing much to recommend about this bland Euro lager.
