dnicolaescu (1279) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle 50 CL. Golden-amber with a poor white head. Metallic aroma, fermented fruit with hint of spice (kind of like a Belgian blonde), dirty socks? The flavours sucks almost as bad - oily diacetyl, light astringent acidity, abrasive carbonation. No hops. Meh.

ThirstyBird (2184) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2015
Thanks to Gabriel!! Pours a light amber color with a head that goes away quickly. The smell is fruit, caramel, corn. The taste is fruit, cardboard, caramel ending a bit bitter with a strange aftertaste. Light with very little carbonation. A very unfortunate beer.

Erzengel (5494) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2015
1l plastic bottle from a Russian shop in Wuppertal. Amber in colour the brew starts malty-sweetish. Fresh, a bit grainy with a mouldy-strange (plastic) taste. Sweetish-grainy, smooth. Strange mouldy-sweetish aftertaste.

vinivini (708) - BELARUS - APR 10, 2014
Pale yellow colour, thin bubbly head. Smells of grain, bread, grass. Light to medium body. The taste is malty sweetich & sourish. The bitterness appears near finish. Hoppy aftertaste. The palate of this beer is rather all right, but the taste is everything but pleasant. Not a second bottle please.
