2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The first of 10 unremarkable east block import pilsners Iím tasting from the LCBO. This one pours a light gold with a smallish white cap that does not last but stays as a durable surface lace. Aromas of sweet boiled grains some light fruit smells and some veggies.
Rounded, malty, lightly hopped but all through the drink and in the fast semi dry finish, there is this wierd vegital taste that wonít leave...like water someone boiled some sweet peas in...Drinkable, wierd taste but forgetable...not in the same league with the premium Czech Pisners.

This one surprised me. Very clean, fruity malts with bubblegum notes towards the end. Light perle hops to balance. Nice.

My friend tsarman got it right when he rated this a couple months ago: "These Eastern European beers. A glass thats over a pint and under buck fifty". Its true, Its a fair beer and its cheap.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2006 500ml brown bottle. Poured golden, compact white head, leaves good lacing. Lemony floral hop aroma. Light clean malt flavour with pleasant citrus/lemon hops notes. Finishes rather dry, light hop aftertaste with some minerals. Light body, low carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flat looking lager with a very sweet fruity aroma, the flavour is tremendously sweet with only a tiny hint of bitterness (generally wheat beer like). Overall quite a poor effort due to the sweetness.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This pours a light golden color with a frizzy white head and strong carbonation, the latter two which disappear rather quickly. The aroma is malty, sweet, and grassy. This is a fairly watery drink. Mild sweet malt flavors with a sticky sweet finish.
