2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 50cl from Romania. Poured a clear amber with a shortlived white head. Generic aroma, hoppy and slightly sweet, perhaps vegetal. Tangy hoppy flavour, a little acidic in the finish. Metallic. Average - what you’d expect from that region of Europe.

Light yellow colored, little white head. Sweet, lemony, estery aroma with mild cardboard. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is more cardboardy with esters and some dryness in aftertaste. Lemon also lasts.

Can (BB 06/2007)
Pale yellow color, small white color. Fruity, lemon esters and cardboard in the nose, like in any tropical lager. Acidic, a bit estery (lemon), mostly boring cardboardish flavors. Nothing special.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2010 Bottled. A light gold coloured beer with a thin whitish head. The aroma is grassy and a bit sickly. The taste has some reasonable bitterness but it’s all a bit Eurofizzy. Score 1.9
Subsequent rating scored 2.7. Average becomes 2.3

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
While this one was the third of four differnt Romanian beers my friend "smuggled" back into the US for me, I was expecting more garbage like the first two. However this one suprised me, because it wasn’t actually bad compared to the first two. This was was very crisp, nicely hopped, no aftertaste of corn or formaldahyde. I was just a nice beer. I can see this one going down very nicely after a long walk (or run, depending on who you and where you are) thru the streets of Bucharest or Transylvania or perhaps Miklosvar. All in all, my favorite so far of the Romania brews. If stranded in Romania, get this one."

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Golden lager with a decent head. Very aromatic - although from a nondescript source, it’s not just the hops.... Quite dry without much hop character. Underlying sweetness. Not that bad - for Romania that is. 290603
