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?

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A friend of mine brought this beer from Romania. The bottle looks good. The beer tastes in the beginning like a bockbier, but much to dry, it really turns nasty. Not good.

Thanks to Ciocanelu for this beer.

This beer starts mild, slightly grainy. Pale Lager typical. The mainpart is a bit grainy, slightly malty. In the end slightly bitter
A typical Pale lager. Easy to drink but nothing really distinctive! --> 8/10/7/8

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled at Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN with joebrew and brewfiend. Pours a clear golden pale brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissipates nearly clean with no film or ring. Aroma of sweet corn adjunct with a light citrus zest. Taste is light bodied, light carbonation with a sweet corn and grits flavor with some citrus hop character. Finish is sweet and a little gritty that quickly disappears with hardly no aftertaste. Not sure what to make of this brew except it is a sweet beverage with some stale citrus hop character.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2012 Can from supermarket in Cyprus. Pale yellow with small head. Inoffensive and fairly clean swill, even if tasteless and boring. 3-2-3-2-6 = 1.6/...........re-rate in Brasov, Romania. Standard gold, slim stable head
Aroma has hint of lemonbalm and the flavors have solid pale malts and finish with brisk, nicely bitter hops. Highly drinkable
