Koelschtrinker (10649) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Süßlich-getreidiger Antrunk. Leicht würzig, frisch. Im Mittelteil angenehm herb, mild aber noch ok. Im Abgang bitterer werdend, pricklend und grasig. Das Bier ist hier kräftiger, mittel-würzig aber eher weich. Im Abgang weitet sich der Hopfen etwas aus. Ein normales Pils, für Rumänien ziemlich gut! Test vom 13.8.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,9,9,9,8,9 - 8,85

rosenbergh (6804) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 28, 2011
500 ml can. From Germany.
Clear pale golden colour with small white head. Sweet sugary candy malty aroma. Flavour is some grassy hops and malt. Drinkable good Lager.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2012 Tall can, such a cheesy one, green with deer on it, made to look like hunters’ beer I guess...pale yellow. The head is fairly stable, and if the color was more attractive it would certainly get a 3. Aroma is almost like a radler or a krystallweizen, is spritzy with some pleasant suble ester and seems clean but bland. Decent, dry, finish in which I even taste some hops. Not nearly as bad as expected! 4.2.4.3.8.......Re-rate in Brasov: Gold with stable head Aroma mainly sweet nutty malt and those malts are developed nicely in the body, which is solid for a pale lager that is mire like Hellas and balanced with a clean crisp but not hoppy finish. Certainly an up-rate but didn’t get numbers down.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2011
Bottled. Pale golden colour with big airy head. Fruity, light metallic nose. Light bodied with fruity flavour and not much else. Really dead mouthfeel. No bitterness and not much flaws but the carbonation.

gyllenbock (4634) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2009
Bottle in Brasov. Yet another useless standard lager without any character except the watery taste.

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 25, 2008
0.5l bottle, had while in Cluj. Pours a golden yellow with little head. Can’t really smell the aroma for some reason. Palate is dry and has the consistency of bad ginger ale - like very fizzy pop. Flavour is lacking. Really bitter, weak. Watery. Bleck.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2008
Bottled (BB 11/2008)
Pale yellow color, small white head. Corn-malty, skunky nose. Fizzy. Corn, skunky hops, grainy notes. Not much else, a bit like a tropical lager.

kappldav123 (4943) - GERMANY - JAN 10, 2008
The bottle looks not so good, very old. Aroma is nasty. The flavor the same. Too sourish and too dry, the finish a little bit sweet, that fits not to the rest of the beer. Not good!

KnutAlbert (6093) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2007
0,5 l bottle, thanks, Geir Ove. A clammy cardboard flavour is covering every aspiration this beer could have in making the Balkan top ten. Forgettable. But it’s another country, isn’t it?

omhper (19372) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2007 Draught at a mountain hotel south of Braşov. Pale golden, rich firm head. Grainy nose. Dryish and lightly grassy, clean flavourwise. Low bitterness. Possibly a top choice in Romania.
