The bootle and the color of the beer is a little bit poor. But advantage, all the way is better than any other Romanian beers. Easy to drink. You can’t feel the aroma stronger .

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
No comment, a poor lager, no distinction from the mainstream, industrial lagers in Romania e.g. Ursula, Ciuc, etc.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Decidedly malty beer with notes of hay and straw. Hops almost escapes perception, while the bitterness is light and dry. Watery texture, light sweetness. Well, just a regular, not really well made helles. To be frank, I enjoyed some of the Romanian corporate lagers more than this one.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a very pale yellow color, topped with rather avergae white head. The retention is bad.
There is a malty aroma and that’s all that can be picked up.
The taste is sweet and malty. No real bitterness.
Nothing special about it. Rather bland.
