hawthorne00 (2469) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2010
Bottle. Straw coloured, collapsing white head. High bead. Grainy aroma with hay, earth, grass. Smells clean enough despite a green bottle and a long journey. Mild grainy malt sweetness with some bitterness. A little papery and metallic. Not good but not a disaster.

probstblueribbon (2942) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2010
500 ml can from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear light golden with a small white head. Aroma: Some light grassy hops, grains/cereals, a touch of apple juice, a little resinous hops, touches of bready crust/biscuit maltiness, light but not too bad, particularly for an “Eastern European” lager. Palate: Medium body, medium-light carbonation, a little bit of Pils smoothness. Flav.: Actually a nice blend of light malts and peppery, grassy hops, much better than expected from nose and preconceptions; dry with some bitterness and a light, slightly fruity malt finish.

Exceeded expectations.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle in Cluj Napoca, Romania. Pretty similar to the last few i’ve rated. Typical grain fare, both nose and taste. This one had an added hint of some herbal spices. Not so bad.

From bottle, can and draft. Golden color. Grassy aroma. Light hoppy tones, more malty. Drinkable.

rozsoma (508) - HUNGARY - AUG 26, 2009
A híres "csíki bír" egyenesen Csíkszeredáról. Minden magyar sörbarátnak érdemes ezért a nedűért Székelyföldre elbarangolnia. Meg hát amúgy is. Különben színe arany, íze enyhén keserű, mely sokáig a kitölti a szájat. Illatában gyógyfüvek leledzenek. Jól el lehet merengeni mellette. Ja és literes kiszerelésben is kapható ám. Komolyan nem értem mi ez az underrate, örülnék, ha itthon is kapható lenne!!!

Bottled, sampled at Bierhaus, Timisoara/Temesvár, Romania. Clear colden colour, creamy head. Sewer, plug-hole aroma and old flowers. Oily body with thin mouthfeel. No malt or hop features at all. Old plants and stem here. Low bitterness and somwhat papery.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2012 In short: A salty version of our North-American macros. A notch below boring
How: A few times on tap and bottles when travelling through Romania/Transylvania, because in some small villages this was sometimes the only beer to drink
The look: Clear blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is typical bland macro. Taste is a variation of those bland macro beers, which in this case means some kind of high-fructose corn syrup mixed with Seven-Up™. Whatever… The difference here is the many times I had this shitty beer is always seemed salty. Maybe the salt goes away a and blends in for people who drink this beer less fresh outside Romania but coming from someone (me) who had it numerous times on location I can tell you that there is something in the water over there and a fresh Ciuc Premium is abnormally salty. This beer sucks. Drank many of these (unfortunately) while travelling Romania with my Romanian wife. Why did I not marry a Belgian woman again?

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 26, 2008
Pours pale yellow with a thin white head. A weak malt and hoppy aroma, quite skunky and metallic. Low carbonation with a short bitter finish. Boring.

Pee-coloured, fast diminishing head, Drinkable but no thrills here. (Bottle 50cl)
