kamwitsta (553) - POLAND - JAN 19, 2016
Aroma: very little of that; a bit of roastiness and a whiff of honey. Appearance: black, opaque, head large, lasts for about a second. Taste: mildly sweet, marginally bitter. Palate: body pretty light; carbonation fizzy at first, quickly fizzles out; finish a little astringent, mildly sweet. Overall: if they inverted the beer to water ratio, this could probably be a nice drink. It’s still more fun than pure water but a bit too homeopathic to have any effect on the senses.

Nurmis (387) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2016
500ml can from supermarket. Pours black with medium tanned head which quickly diminishes, soft carbonation. Aroma mainly from roasted malt, bit of hops... you can sense the added sugar. Medium to heavy sweetness, lightly bitter. Ok.

promontor (104) - HUNGARY - JAN 13, 2016
0.5l can, bought in a Spar supermarket in Budapest. A great classic in my memories from the old days of U Cerneho Vola. But the old days are gone, I have changed a lot and I suspect this beer has changed a lot, too. Not to better, unfortunately. Starts with a dark brown body with a nice and thick beige head. Could be more persistent, though. Aroma is neutral, a bit of cocoa. Foam is very sweet, plus again some cocoa and some bread-like sourness. Tastes sweet. Dominantly sweet with hints of cocoa and coke. A bit of chocolate for some subsecond moments. Watery as well, not surprising givent the alcohol content. Palate is coke-like, not very convincing. In the end coke is coming more and more forward in the taste as well, which spoils the show quite a bit. Kind of OK light Prager dunkel, but far from the classic beer of my memories, so it was a dissapointment for me in the end.

dancao (8) - - DEC 12, 2015 does not count
Uma cerveja muito fraca, peca pelo doce inocente e pela falta de uma boa contraposição. Parece muito uma malzebier. Não recomendo.

gorkogrlo (321) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 1, 2015
Can at 4-6°C. Pours medium light brown head. Dark brown /ruby color. Clear. In nose aromas of toast, earth, caramel and chocolate. In flavor also presence of nuts. More sweet than bitter. Medium body. Overall: nice, easy drinkable beer. And very flavorful for that low percent of alcohol. Maybe too sweet so it reminds me, just a little bit, on maltzbier.

Gilrond (37) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 1, 2015
Dark brown clear color (like Cola) with little brown minimal head. Nice roasty and coffee aroma. Taste is from beginning caramel sweet, very watery in the middle and hoppy bitterness in the end? Look fo it somewhere else. Typical dark eurobeer...
