1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle at Kazan Restaurant in Victoria, London. Pours clear pale golden with a thick, but largely insubstantial head which fades within seconds. Aroma is surprisingly flowery with some malt. Aroma isn’t much more complex than that. Flavor is a little sweet with hardly any bitterness. Body is thin with a moderate carbonation.

I liked the green bottle but I have heard concerns about how that can hurt the beer inside. Since the beer went from the local beer store to my beer fridge, I wasn’t worried about that.
Label says it contains rice.
A nice light yellow look with a small amount of head. It dissipated quite quickly but did leave lacing behind. There was a bit of a hop taste to it but otherwise nothing stood out in the smell or taste of it. It felt good in the mouth and had a decent taste to it.
This would be a good beer on a hot day. It would also be good for when you did not want something complex to drink about. Given the colour and taste, this would serve as a good beer to transition friends away from "regular" beers.

Bottle, courtesy of Jimthechap. Aroma of flowers, very unlikely a regular pale lager. Striong scent of hollunder. Better, grassier than most pale lagers, but not as metallic as most pilseners. Surely must be a great relief under the heat of Lesbos... Oh no, I think that’s a Greek one...

Notes from backlog. Some malt, some sweetness, very bland. Could be nice in the heat but nothing I will be returning to.

This beer was better than I was expecting. Pretty typical pilsener with some hop presence and malty sweetness. Nothing special but pretty refreshing, even on a chilly autumn evening.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Láhev 500 ml. Dovoz od kamarádky přímo z Turecka. Aroma je sladové s nádechem kvásku. Pěna je jasně bílá, středně vysoká, jemná a nedržící. Barva samotného piva je žlutá. Chuť je sladší, sladová s nevýrazným vodovým okrajem, finiš je jemně hořký a držící. Vcelku se jedná o průměrné pivo, vcelku dobře pitelné, leč nepříliš výrazné.
