Can in a roadside restaurant before Pitesti. Imagine a bag of the cheapest candy imaginable, mixed with some Alpine herbal candy, eucalyptus candy and juicy fruit bubblegum. Put that into a blender, add some fizzy water and there you go - look at the abomination you have created...

Can. Pours clear golden, medium white head, dissipates fairly quickly, some lacing. Aroma is grain and corn, flavor follows, faint hop notes, minimal bitterness, but at least it isn’t to sweet.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
19/08 0.5 l can Marko bought at some gas station (thanks!) after we’ve been late to all markets, due to that hour of timezone difference! Its aroma was stinky NA malty, with corn, socks, cornflakes and ton of dust. Flavor was sourish to sweet, grainy and bready with some sourish hops near the end. Thinner in body. Quite boring and mostly unpleasant.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from a gas station on the outskirts of Timisoara. Actually the last beer we rated on the trip, but couldn’t bother with writing down the rating so I have to enter it first. I’ll trust Per that it’s clear golden - drunk from a can in the car, very late in the day. Typical unfermented wort/soggy cornflakes aroma, light lemony notes. More of the same in the taste only with a lemony, slightly papery hopiness that prevents this from being a faliure. This is... oh look, a cat!
