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

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

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.
