Bottle @ ChristianScheffel tasting. [thank you, BeerBiker]
Pours pale golden with a little white head. Hay-like sweet aroma with a citric bitter hoppy edge. Thin mouthfeel. Flavour is limited, lightly sour citric bitter. Not fantastic, but there is a certain elegance to it.

Not sure if this is the right beer. My bottle (360 ml) said ABV 4.6 and my searches told me this was really a pilsener. But anyway: Pale golden color, small white head. Butterscotch aroma, fruity notes and toffee. Bready flavor, malty and with some hops.

Sweet mother of mercy, this was awful - maybe it lost something in the trip over but I doubt it could lose that much. The bottle procured from the local ethnic grocer poured out a predictable pale yellow with no head. There would be no lacing here. Smelled a little metallicy, vaguely hoppy in a miller lite kind of hops way. Flavor was just plain bad, mettalic a little sweetness but the malt and hops seemed absent must be largely adjunct in this bad boy. Carbonated dishwater best explains the feel of this one in the mouth.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 11, 2003
Clear golden color, medium foamy head. Interesting aroma of hops and herbs. Balanced very well with ideal interplay of fruits, malts and spicy/piney hops.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2002
Dark amber clear with a small short lasting head. Faint caramel and roasted malt, and even fainter coffee and hops aromas. Medium thin body. Light roasted malts and stronger bitter all the way through to the finish and aftertaste.
