2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma: Sweet, bready malt, candies, caramel. Appearance: No head, amber color. Taste: Sweet, soury, bread, some caramel, bit of fruity notes, candies, not very tasty, minimal biterness and some low spicy hoppy notes. Palate: Finish is sweet, carbonation is very high, body is medium-low. In Iranian climate and no-beer conditions it is pretty good but I prefer the fruity versions.

Bottle with thanks to Nikos! Country 102. Pours a flat clear Amber, no head or lacing. Aroma is wort, malt sugars, toffee, grain. Flavor is medium plus sweet, no bitterness, like a flat malt soda. Medium body, no carbonation. Kinda gross.

I’ve already reviewed this previously; god knows where the rating went. Bought from a Persian shop on Hagley Road, years ago. Terrible, obv.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Thx! for sharing DutchDrebus. 320 +/- 5 ml. (I kid you not!) bottle sampled @ ZZT XIII. Bizarre clear pale brown amber with zero head. Nose is this syrup bizarre awful medicinal sugar, watery with some dark bread. Taste is thin syrupy medicinal, hugely watery artificial syrup with watery bread. Very thin & watery. Awful. Like a really bad soda. Really, really bad though. No wonder people in Iran drink stuff like bootleg Heineken etc. when they go for beer plus illegal homebrew as well (likely).

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ ZZT, small sample. Clear amber to copper color, short frothy head. Aroma of rye bread, sugary molasses and caramel. Supersweet in taste, rye bread. For a small sip it’s actually quite ok. Wouldnt dare drinking a whole bottle.
