Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 2012 rating from Brasov: Golden with a big fluffy head. Slightly griany aroma. Light body and the mild taste is slightly grainy, slightly tart.

2011 rating from Cyprus: Pale straw. Thin head. Union-made, appley, industrial aroma. Thin with not much taste beyond some vague industrial beer accents, maybe a bit of that acetaldehyde.

Koelschtrinker (9994) - 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

KnutAlbert (5756) - 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?

ogivlado (5384) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 26, 2011
Canned 500ml. -Pale golden coloured, medium sized white head, almost neutral nose (weak weak grainy hint). Not much of taste here, discreet grainy, watery and light metallic with short finish. Typical Romanian pale lager.
