Wow. I am honoured to be one of the few rating this beer. Too bad I couldn’t have shared it with Piscator (the kids opened it for me before I knew what was going on). This was a great beer. My friend smuggled it home from Romania. I am going to ask him to bring some more next time he goes.

Ciucas has a thick, spongy, white head, a clear, bubbly, straw appearance, and some ragged lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet biscuit and a shade of grass, and the flavor is of sweet grain and some mildly bitter, grassy hops. Mouthfeel is on the light side, and Ciucas finishes crisp, refreshing, and tasty. RJT

stjamesgate (65) - IRELAND - OCT 30, 2013
White gold with champagne head that fades to film. Corny nose with some stale noble hops. Adjunct sweetness with grassy end. Sour end and tingly linger. Watery, crisp. soft. Bottom end macro. Artificial sweetness, flaccid body + no hop snap. It’d hafta to be real hot...

Koelschtrinker (10636) - 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

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.

bunget (548) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2012
500ml can. Pale yellow lager with a big white head, low retention and lacing in small chunks. Nose is crisp and light, hops, grassy. Taste is sweet in the beginning with a later hops delicate influence, some vanilla notes, a little floral. Carbonation...well it’s like a sparkling wine, way too much. Light and refreshing, almost like a Kozel but without the Czech hops. Good.
