2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Canette 500ml. De couleur jaune-dorée et claire. Nez de grains de malt pâle, léger de pain et de houblon herbeux (gazon et foin) avec de faibles notes de légumes bouillis. Plutôt mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et aux petites notes croustillantes ainsi qu’une texture légèrement aqueuse. Goût de grains de malt pâle frais accompagné de notes de légumes bouillis sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un léger goût de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux (foin, notes de gazon mouillé). Post-goût court-moyen et aux faibles notes asséchantes, très légèrement amer de houblon herbeux.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml can, bright clean yellow color, with a bubbly white head, faint corny, grainy honeyed pale, pilsener malt nose with a light haystack accent in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp pale cereal malt, faint grainy honeyish character with a light flowery grassy herbal hop note with a hint of vanilla, and a mild corny undertone accent, leading towards a mild malty sweetness, light leafy hop bitterness finish.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can from the LCBO. Very pale greenish-yellow body with a huge white head that disappears while my back is turned for a few seconds - literally! Aroma - Jesus, what is that? It’s like an odd spiced sour ale with a strong suggestion of plastic and a backing note of cooked vegetables. I have honestly never smelled a beer that smells like this before, and I hope I never do again. Flavour isn’t quite as repulsive, but it’s still no great shakes - cheap tasting malt, icing sugar, corn, harsh grassy hops, and a helluvalot more alcohol in the finish than I should be getting off a 4.8% lager. Hoo boy.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Clean malty profile, a bit heavier than most of its counterparts. Not bad, though the unfiltered version is significantly better.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I think this is one of the better of Romania’s beers. Poured with a nice foamy, frothy head, white with fine bubbles. Good lace. Pleasant golden yellow hue. Mild slightly sweet nose and beery. Flavor’s grainy, a bit of hops, and pale malt. Bit thin. But stlll quite drinkable. Clean. Balanced. Smooth. Nice finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Second brew from Romania at the LCBO. Can with a best before date written on its bottom: 07.05.2011. Pours a clean light gold colour with a white foamy head that dissipate quickly enough, leaving a bit of lace. The aromas are pretty mild with some grains and some sweetness that reminds me of apple juice. Crisp mouthfeel and medium-bodied. The grassy normal pils taste is found with some light malt. Again, nothing special here (and I think I prefer the Ursus Premium just a bit more).

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Lager like one in a hundred, but still one of the best in Romania. More bitter and less watery than the rest.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
0.5 l can shared with Doggythedog, huge thanks! Poured golden body with smaller head. Malty, mostly dusty nose with some citrus hops and notes of corn besides. Flavor...what is this!? Metallic, soapy, ugly industrial bitter as well. After few sips poor palate gets used to it so some corn becomes evident but it’s strange anyway, ranging between sour, bitter and sweet. Drinkable to some stage, but still with awful bitter finish. How the hell can someone launch such beer I don’t know, obviously they miss someone who will actually try their crap before putting it on the market.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Thanks Joebrew. I think. Straw yellow with faint head. Sweet corn nose and a sugary body with a relatively smooth finish (for the night at any rate).
