Shame about the corn. A slight aroma of chamomile. A bit sweet towards the tip, and a bit bitter at the rear (of the tongue). A unique beer. It resembles Eastern European lagers, but my faith affirms top fermentation. Most eastern lagers go down my sink drain, but Ekstra will go down my personal plumbing. There is a tongue coating finish of sweet bitterness that redeems the otherwise characterlessness. I have no understanding how this could be a planned beer; the corn must have an important impact here. пробует хорошо!

Flaske fra den bulgarske matbutikken i Rantzausgade: klar gylden med kort hvitt skum. Aroma av vissent gress, kokte grønnsaker og smør. Smaken er jammen ikke særlig mye bedre, og ettersmaken er vammel. Bra den bare kostet 12 kroner. På etiketten står det "art drink series limited edition". Betryggende å vite at den kommer i begrenset utgave. Kunsten å lure forbrukerne.

Taki sobie lager, posmak ma?lany niestety dyskwalifikuje to piwo. Na Litwie jednak ci??ko o dobre piwo.

33cl bottle as a gift (bought at the brewery - labeled "Gubernija art drink series Ekstra"). Pours clear pale golden with a lasting, white head. Wow! Surprisingly buttery smell! Slightly impressive! Aroma of diacetyl with some grainy notes, with hints of ripe pears and grass. Moderate to medium sweet with buttery flavours and a light bitterness. Hardly impressive, but still somehow drinkable.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Stas. Clear bright gold with white head. Buttery, sweet with hints of salt in the nose, very buttery and sweet in the mouth. Creamy, medium body, buttery finish. Nasty.

DSG (11117) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Stas. Clear yellowish gold. Aroma full of butterscotch. Sweetish flavor with malt, diacetyl and a drier bitterish finish. Quite light-bodied with light diacetyl creaminess. Quite unpleasant.

500ml can kindly shared by djoeye. Pale golden body, slightly hazy. Bubbly, white head. Semi-sweet malty aroma. Mixed taste profile of toffee malts and grassy hops, mild spices as well. Distant bittersweet ending, semi-dry. Medium bodied. Fair enough (Tromsø 27.02.2014).

Aroma; toffee n grass. Low chalk white tight top, bright light golden and slightly unclear body, just a little lacings. Sweet toffee and malts to the tongue, hints of cinnamon, grass and straw, hints of crowberries. Finishes with bread, toffee, dark sweet bread. Ok beer, easy to drink, sweet but tasty enough.
