Aroma has notes of cereals, hops, malt, honey, fresh bread.
Sweety taste, lively carbonation, medium body, bitter finish.
Itís very refreshing and very tasty!

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma is malty, cereal. Flavour malty with some sweetness in the begining and slighlty bitter in the end. Nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, pale yellow, minimal head, low carbonation, light bitterness, medium sweetness (pie-style), watery, slightly hoppy finish. The label says "special blonde" but, as usual with "specials", it tastes like the average. Not too bad, that is, but the writer it is supposed to honour deserves more, for sure (the more so at an above the average price).

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Slightly hazy dull straw. Sugary aroma is also fairly yeasty. Tart, and this is on tap. Some graininess. This is not good.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft at Bierstube in Brasov. Gold with uneven scant white head. Sweet cereal aroma, with canned fruit. Lacking hops. Is thin and there is tartness, not green apple, more just a quirk, on the palate. Has a rustic charm athough after a while, its just purely flawed and becomes nearly undrinkable in its sourness :(
