Golden color, smell is of grains, a touch of skunk. Taste is of malts and grains, a refreshing and decent beer.

Alengrin (1025) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
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.

MarkoNm (482) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 26, 2014
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. Drinkable.

Calisky (601) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUL 10, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2014 Couleur dorée, légère mousse blanche. Nez très leger malté typique lager. Gout très leger malté, mais tres aqueuse, bière de base meme si pas désagréable.

25/V/14 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 1/V/14 (2014-556) Thanks to 77ships for picking this one up for me!

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

tom10101 (2702) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
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.

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2014
50cl bottle shared @ BAB’14. Courtesy of 77ships. Dorée paille, col blanc léger. Arôme offre cet ennuyant bouquet de lager industrielle, houblonné aux relents assez métallique. Palais malté, léger pâle carapils au fini restant assez doux ce qui n’est pas désagréable. Les houblons sont nobles ajoutant peu en terme de complexité et juste un profil basique en amertume.

77ships (3683) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2014
500 ml. bottle sampled @ Brugs Bier Festival 2014. Procured from Anna-Maria in Antwerp. Light golden, white head. Hay, grains, extract in the nose, pale lager fare, grains, light hops. Bitter grains taste, lager hops, hay, esters, grains, cheap hay. Grainy mouth feel, not fun to chug, the aftertaste really lingers. Meh, not my kind of stuff.
