2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
50cl can from the Wine Company, Slough. Pale straw with a billowing white head; sweet cereal grain aroma; watery with a starchy feeling that coats the tongue; the finish was some reasonable but weak bitterness. More drinkable than most cheap eastern European offerings.

Fluorescent yellow. The aroma is fairly grainy. The taste is also grainy. The body is thin. Quick and swilly.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tall can. From Romanian/Bulgarian store in Paphos. Bright yellow, not a bad hue really. Small sickly looking head. Aroma is sour pale malts and old underpants, typical of lame swill. Thin and watery but thankfully not sticky. Served ice cold, doesn’t taste so bad but this is not a good beer.

500ml white can -
Received from my buddy Brian on his most recent trip to Romania. It was a decent, pretty average pale lager that begs to be slammed quickly. First pour and I’m thinking...hey, not bad. But after about 5 minutes of getting a bit warm, some really odd men’s room/urine stank started filling up my nose. You know, when you’re standing there and doing you’re business at the urinal and you can’t help but smell the surroundings...well, that’s what started filling my senses. Appearance wise, a pale, pale watercolor yellow, crystal clear with some large bubbles gathering at the bottom and floating up lazily. Flavor wise, it was pretty clean actually. Light apple juice-like flavors make up the most of this beer. Mouthfeel is watery, but slightly prickly. Finish is clean. Not bad, save for the aroma.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
2.5l plastic bottle from a Russian supermarket. The beer pours pale golden with a large and creamy, light head. The aroma os fruity-woody-hoppy, quite harsh. Light-bodied, shy malty base, woody-dusty hop flavours and arather harsh sourish bitterness in the finish.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
30/10 1 l plastic Doggythedog found in Prague, thanks for sharing! It poured pale yellow body with small head. Plastic glue aroma, some weak malts, all is very faint luckily. Sweetish corny and hay malty flavor. Pretty thin bodied with watery finish. Barely drinkable crap, what else to say for the typical SE European macro beer.

green plastic bottle 1000ml. -as Servus Original Pils. Courtesy of Doggythedog, shared with him and heavy (thanks!).
Pale golden coloured, small white head, some weak notes of glue in the nose. Quite tasteless; touch of dust and polluted air with some stale corn. Awful.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Found somewhere in the Czech Republic, really dunno where. Shared with ogivlado and heavy. Slightly pale golden body, small head that went away fast. Almost no nose, bit dry graininess, maybe honey, but that’s all damn subdued. Empty taste, cardboardy and slightly lemony. That’s it. Can be drunk. Blah.
