1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Shared 50 cl green bottle at local tasting, 4.5% ABV. Pale golden colour, low white head. Strong aroma of grass, candy and butterscotch, but not unpleasant. Bland flavour, not much of anything, a little grassy hops in the finish. Forgettable.

Shared 0,5 l bottle. 4,5% is written on the bottle. Clear golden body with a white film. Buttery malts on the nose. Clean and bitter with a sharp carbonation. Light to medium bodied. Lasting bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours clear weak golden with a small white head. Aroma is shy, but with a noticeable diacetyl note. Taste is very weak dry, herbal and harsh hops. Boring.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, pale golden. Quickly disapperaing white head. Sweetish aroma with flowery hops and butterscotch. Similar taste. Not too bad. A bit waterish.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Every country outside of the old historical ’beer belt’ and outside of the States has its own national mass-marketed lager and usually little else when it comes to beer, and this is the one from Armenia. Crisp with thin mouthfeel, grainy with some corn-like, even a bit sugary sweetness (something I utterly dislike in pale lagers) and light spicy but brief hop bitterness in the finish. Drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a small and quickly vanishing white head.
There is a mild malty aroma, which is basically it about the nose.
The taste is watery and light, malty, sweet. No real bitterness.

Clear golden beer, big aery white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: some weed in the bottle, in the glass more sweet and sugary, bit soapy, washing powder for clothes. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: pretty bitter, bit sweet, grassy, hay, malty grains, sugary. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, sweet grains, meh. Armenia: check! :p

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle (330 ml). Clear yellow with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is skunky with cereals, grass and metallic notes. Taste isn’t any better with even more funky notes (green bottle), corn and grass. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Bland finish. Pretty bad, even for a Premium Lager country tick.
