2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Weak malty aroma. Small head disappearing to thin layer. Clear golden body. Sweet taste with some bitterness. Not so OK for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl can served cold in a lager glass. Dae code(?) seems to indicate 2013.
The carbonation looks (high) higher than it feels (medium), with lots of rather coarse carbonation rising even quite a few minutes after the pour. No doubt this contributes to the very good retention of the head and very good lacing. Excellent clarity in this deep golden beer.
Probably is more flavorful than average for style, but clearly would benefit from a bit more hopping.
O: this was a very pleasant surprise, and very high on the drinkability dimension.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear Gold Color, Decent Head, Some Lacing. Grainy Aroma. Grainy, Slight Malt, Semi Sweet. Decent for what it is. Otherwise nothing exceptional. Drinkable but I would pass and look for something else...

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
The can/bottle calls this a "Full Pale Beer". It tastes like a slightly more American minded Euro-Lager.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, Golden color with a white head. Malt, may and yeast aromas. A little bit of hops and structure. Not bad if cold.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bière jaune pâle et limpide avec une mousse éphémère. Nez très discret de céréales avec de la mouffette en guise de bonus. En bouche, la bière est aqueuse. Une légère pointe d’acidité citronnée porte les saveurs principalement maltées. Je goûte un peu de miel aussi. La finale est plus sèche. Ce n’est pas une grande découverte. I guess this O.K. Beer is just... O.K!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Medium sized quickly changing fluffy white foamy head on top of a clear yellow golden colored beer.
Aroma is quite the opposite of complex: malts and rice..
The flavour has more: malts, honey, light bitter...
Aftertaste has malts, bitters, light spiced and some grains...
Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, low to medium bodied and a creamy/watery texture.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Much like the Baltika brew I had the other night, skunky aromas fill my senses as soon as I pop the top on this bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a decent sized white head that dissipates quickly to a cap. After airing out a bit the skunk is still in the room, but maybe my nose is used to the smell a bit because I can find some bready pils and a hint of flowers. The flavor is a bit better than the aroma advertised. Nice sweet bready malt presence with a hint of graininess. There’s a firm spicy hop bit that provides a great balance to the malty sweetness. Carbonic acid is a bit high and does detract a bit. Medium body with a sweet bubbly mouthfeel and a moderate level of carbonation. Not a bad brew after it airs out a bit.
