2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Has a surprisingly clean, grainy if also slightly sulfury profile. A tad watery but still evoid of any major flaws. Drinkable for what it is and certainly not the worst choice of a lager in Georgia.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle in Tbilisi. Clear pale golden. Nose... aaaaaa!! Skunky-grainy-sweaty pure awfulness. Taste... nearly as bad... Couldn’t do more than a couple of sips, this is god damn terrible.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, many thanks DSG, stable frothy dense head, just deepish clear golden colour, skunky, rotten eggs aroma with a malty backbone, fruity malty sweet flavour with a strong coarse bitterness making for an unsavoury combination. Not good to say the least.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
50cl bottle from a supermarket in Tbilisi. Pours pale golden with a fairy decent white head. Mild malty aroma with cooked vegetables and hints of fruits and hops. Another quite standard pale lager. Medium sweet and not much bitterness or flavour, but drinkable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 Bottle, thanks Ia and Palle! Golden, low head and carbonation. Fairly neutral straw malt aroma. Cookie malt, mellow, a bit sparkly mouthfeel, the barest of hop counterpoints, bready and cornlike aftertaste. Nothing technics; wrong with it, but balanced towards the malty a bit too much for my taste.
