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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Clear, pale golden to golden, smaller loose white head; light to moderate dryish pale-malty nose with a light grassy hoppy aroma; light to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, pretty light bodied; slightly lingering dryish grassy finish. Quite good, definitely better than the dutch Heineken products.......

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2010 Bottled. A light gold coloured beer with a thin whitish head. The aroma is grassy and a bit sickly. The taste has some reasonable bitterness but it’s all a bit Eurofizzy. Score 1.9
Subsequent rating scored 2.7. Average becomes 2.3

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a blond and short foamy head. Slightly sweet and grainy malty aroma with a grassy hoppy touch. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a slightly harsh carbonation. Dry pale malt character with grainy spots; dry-ish bitter-sweet finish. Probably better than Heineken NL. 12.I.11

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

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks eyes_wide_shut. Clear pale golden. Aroma of corn, a bit of hay and light grassy notes. Sweetish and grainy flavor with a bit of grassy hops notes in a mildly bitter finish. Light-bodied. Not too offensive.

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.
