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."

Yellow coloured brew. It’s not great, but it’s drinkable. A bit watery and fruity. Boring beer.

Medium bubly aspect, discreet head of short resistance. Little metallic and pale aroma, notes of dampen grains and little other. Watery and bitterish taste, washed-out and unbalanced alcohol final.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Pours a clear golden color with an avergae white head that settles down very quickly.
The aroma is easily picked up - malts, slight skunk and some biscuity aroma.
The taste is sweet at first, followed by some bitterness in the finish. Quite strong metallic aftertaste.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
A half finger of head on a clear, yellow colored body. Poor head retention.
The aroma is grain and a stale clover honey. Weird.
The taste is quite bitter with a high level of dryness and pucker factor. Not good.
The texture is crisp with a ton of carbonation and light body.
There’s too much going against this beer.
