2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
1l-PET bottle. Clear golden yellow, large and persistent head. Hoppy nose. Well-balanced beer, perhaps too well-balanced so that it becomes a little boring. Neither very hoppy nor malty but very drinkable.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
2011-01-29. Crisp glowing pee yellow body with a small white head. Odd aroma, grainy straw, creamed corn. Flavour is odd, grassy bitterness, bit rough, muted pale malt. Average to light bodied palate. Poor. Fun fact - Romania’s Danube Delta is a World Heritage site and is the second largest delta in the whole of Europe. Bottle from LCBO, Toronto

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 330ml @ Geokkjer
Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, grain, floral hops. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with a light bitter and kind of dry finish. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
11.2 oz green twist off bottle. It came covered for the most part in paper and it is pretty fresh (best before 16/08/11) and the store was nice and dark.
It pours a pale gold with a foamy right white head, typical of the style. It has above average lacing though.
The smell is thankfully not skunked, it has a nice bready malt presence and some super grassy hops.
The first thing I noticed was it actually started out pretty full bodied for a pilsener, then it mellowed out with a super dry finish. It has enough flavor, it straddles the line between a generic Euro pale lager and a pilsener. But it is well balanced, the malt is bready and almost papery and the hops have a nice tang, pretty much lime zest, and a surprising bitterness right in the finish. This a noble hop bomb and I like that a ton.
I really like the drinkability and mouthfeel, and that will certainly bump this one up.

Can, shared with TylerDurden for the country tick-- yay Romania! Light golden body, compact white head. Aroma and palate are clean grains, witha crisp dry finish. Nothing off, nothing nasty; a well made lager.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
2011-01-29 - shared by jerc & mabel with me and blankboy. 500ml can of likely awesomeness. Scary-looking pour - bubbly clear bright greenish-yellow with a plastic bright white frothy head. Smells like clover, tire fire and raw canola. Taste follows, not as ugly - pvc, ditch water, paper and stale corn. Light, harsh, fizzy, long ugly aftertaste - WHY does crap like this get made? Who buys it? Monkeys?

Can [500ml] shared with HogTownHarry, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours a clear pale, pale yellow with a small diminishing white head. Aroma: Yuck! Overly sweet along with garbage, corn & vegetables. Watery flavour is sweet and vegetal. Light bodied. Simply awful.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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?
