2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A clear one, rather pale golden in color and with a small, white head on top. The aroma has a decent dose of hops, as well as lightly bready maltyness. Some fruityness too. Quite decent actually. There’s a metallic touch in the end, a respectable bitternes too, with semi-dry maltyness initially. Medium body, quite dry. A decent one, nothing impressive, but sure drinkable. 120516

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.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 2012 update: Golden and bright. Light aroma but the palate has a delicate spicy hop. Hints of malt. Decent, refreshing and relatively dry macro.
Original rating, 2011: Can from a random Eastern Euro grocer in Nicosia. Hazy light yellow. Smells a bit doughy. Low bitterness and vague minty, sugary hops but all told it’s a clean, bland pale lager. Nothing going for it, but nothing wrong with it.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Green bottle. Slight waft of skunk when cap came off. Pours gold with a slight white head. Apparently there wasn’t much skunk cause the nose is bready and grassy. Near med body. Flavor is bready, and there is some grassy/spicy hop. I’d say no skunk at all. Gotta be one of the better pale lagers of East Europe.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A pale lager with a thick collapsing white head. Aroma of solvent and green apples. In mouth, a rather un of the mill euro lager, with crips malt, a bit of cloying solvent notes, boring. 500 mL can from LCBO.
