crossovert (9438) - Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
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. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-17-2011 03:42:31

pivnizub (9399) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2011
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.......

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2011
Very pale straw colour. The aroma is a bit light and slightly worty. Light bodied and a bit of light herbal hops. Quite watery and bland. Meh.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2007
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

MoritzF (8726) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2011
(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

Quack-Duck (8653) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2008
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.

jercraigs (8644) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2011
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

DSG (8557) - Tel Aviv, - DEC 12, 2012
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.

DuffMan (8041) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 28, 2013
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.
