Nice head retension. I would not go out of my way for this but it’s proving very satisfying on a very hot afternoon. it’s like a typical Czech pils with a little too much water in the brew.

Can.Yellow and clear appearance. More fizz than taste. A new brewery for me I am embarrassed to say. Not one I would recommend.

Heineken has proved that they do not care about people and traditions; they just want a high profit. They want to destroy a small beer manufacturer in an area of Romania where a large Hungarian minority lives because a very small brewery is able to beat them with a beer that supports traditions and local heritage. Heineken has started a lawsuit in order to stop the production of Igazi Csíki Sör (the new local beer). They claim that the name of their beer called CIUC PREMIUM has been stolen and used unduly by IGAZI CSÍKI SÖR. Can you see the similarity? Oh, of course not. Even if they claim that CSÍKI is the translated version of CIUC, which is completely wrong. Local people have a sense of justice, pride and persistence, so they have started a boycott against Heineken. The point of this action is to avoid everything that is a Heineken product. Many people have felt that they have to join this action, even from Hungary. I believe Heineken has been experiencing a large decrease in sales, especially in this Hungarian area (Szeklerland), as a result of their lawsuit. As a result, they have been putting even more pressure on the manufacturer and are pushing the court to make a decision favourable to them. I encourage everyone who feels that this is an injustice NOT TO BUY, DRINK OR PROMOTE HEINEKEN PRODUCTS! Long live integrity, fairness and justice!
