tone77 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Golden color, smell is of grains, a touch of skunk. Taste is of malts and grains, a refreshing and decent beer.

YantarCoast (83) - Moscow, RUSSIA - SEP 12, 2014
Pours clear gold with a small bone white head that fades away very fast. Skunky, malty aroma, smells a hell of a lot like Kilikia. An average euro lager.

Holmen1 (2467) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2014
Flaske delt på RBHD-samlingen hos Asle Bjørn: hurra, et nytt land! Lys og med kort skum. Litt smørmalt/diacetuyl blander seg inn i den beskjedne humlearomaen. Drikkbar, men "with characteristic hop bitterand expressed malt taste" er en betydelig overdrivelse.

Sigmund (5104) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
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.

abemorsten (2767) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
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.

gunnar (5290) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
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.

Holmen2 (904) - NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
Clear, pale golden. Quickly disapperaing white head. Sweetish aroma with flowery hops and butterscotch. Similar taste. Not too bad. A bit waterish.

Alengrin (1716) - 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 (531) - 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 (697) - 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
