stevoj (2152) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Once you get past the smell of paste, it’s an average lager, heavy on the malt. Taste and smell of wet paper, cereal grains. Main feature was sampling a beer from Armenia.

jaghana (3891) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle 33cl, a clear yellow beer. Nose is low malty with light dry caramel. Aroma is dry, wet paper notes, low body, light cereal and old apple touch, poor.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle from La Mesa Market. Grainy nose with a hint of grassiness. Grains and malt dominate. A hint of hops is present. Drinkable, smooth and fairly clean lager beer.

The second beer in my random weird beer tasting evening, this beer will bring my ’round the world’ drinking expedition to 70 countries on BA, God knows on RB! Green 33ml bottle bought from a Russian shop in Antwerp, Belgium. Poured into a Duvel glass on 28 Jan 2011, the beer was best before 19 Apr 2011. Lovely looking beer, clear, bright and a deep copper/amber colour. On top a crown of snowy white foam. Malty aroma, dry more than sweet, although as the beer warmed it became sweeter, caramel and treacle esters began to appear. The taste was unexpected, one of the maltiest lagers I’ve ever had (think Tusker Malt from Kenya is the most malty I’ve reviewed). A hop dry bitterness comes towards the end of the mouthfeel, which evens up the tastes nicely. Pleasantly suprised, a malty, full bodied lager, well worth seeking out.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2011
Golden pour, Fluffy head, Malty, Grass, hay flavor, some bitterness on the finish, easy to drink, I think I’ve stumbled into some fresh Armenian brews here in So.Cal!

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 11, 2011
A: The pour is a clear golden orange color with a small white head. S: Wow, skunked to say the least. Sweet malt is noticeable under the skunk and there is a bit of adjunct quality to it. Minimal hop notes (grass?). A touch of fruit esters. T: Grassy and metallic with strong skunk flavors. Not a very pleasant flavor, to say the least. Some sweetness of malt with a little bit of hop bitterness. M: Light in body with a medium carbonation. O: My first Armenian beer was a bit disappointing, unfortunately.

Quack-Duck (7911) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 6, 2011
bottle, kindly donated by jaghana - merci! Clear deep golden colour with a brown touch, large off-white head. Malty, slightly fruity with raisins and other dried fruit, slightly hoppy. Quite ok.

JorisPPattyn (7909) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2011
Somewhat aged sample Very good, whipped eggwhite-like head; fed by lively carbonated copper beer. Toasted malts and nutbread, oxydized, maltsyrup - sweet. Oxydized grain, less sweet than suggested by the nose. Metallic streak rather than really bitter; some (old?) hops all the same. Sweetness grows warming up, of course, turning cornflake-like. Some slickness, more than light bodied. Oxydized lager.
