1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

Lager like one in a hundred, but still one of the best in Romania. More bitter and less watery than the rest.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can: Clear gold, disappearing head, poor lacing, over carbonated.
Aroma is faint but there is some graininess indicating pasrtial malt beer.
Watery mouth feel, extract sweetness, gristed malt biscuit tone is obliterated by over boiled hops and massive carbonation.
Better than the Turkish abortion in a bottle I just sampled but not by much. Partial extract beer with an annoying hop signature achieved with either over boiling or hop essence over amping.

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.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can, 0.50l, shared with colleagues, courtesy of Vlad. Clear pale golden color with thin frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is grassy, grainy and papery. Tastes moderate sweet malty with crisp and dry mouthfeel and surprisingly bitter finish. Light body, watery texture and lively carbonation in palate. Easily forgettable...
