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.

500ml can. This time (2012) it is a pils beer not a lager (and 5V/V% alc). Very good, nice, little bubbles, sweet odor but hard, citric hoppy taste. Dry mouthfeel. And cheap! One of best choice in Romania. I like pils.

looks like a beer, smells like a beer - taste like a cross between an English A Czech beer.
Again - Romainian underrated beer. Easy drink, Enough taste to be manly & to get fucked up on.

A híres "csíki bír" egyenesen Csíkszeredáról. Minden magyar sörbarátnak érdemes ezért a nedűért Székelyföldre elbarangolnia. Meg hát amúgy is. Különben színe arany, íze enyhén keserű, mely sokáig a kitölti a szájat. Illatában gyógyfüvek leledzenek. Jól el lehet merengeni mellette. Ja és literes kiszerelésben is kapható ám. Komolyan nem értem mi ez az underrate, örülnék, ha itthon is kapható lenne!!!

500mL can from the LCBO. Pours a nice gold with a small white head. Aroma isn’t even that bad, some cereal grainy sweetness and peppery notes. Flavour is also decent, quite clean for something I thought would be riddled with adjuncts. Pale malts with some tinny hop bite in the finish. Lingering maltyness. Pretty drinkable on a humid summer night, and at a very good price I could actually see myself purchasing this again.

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
