2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Botella de 500mo. Vaso Lager. Saboreada en oct´12. Color oro y apariencia algo nublada. Espuma blanca que crea un corona tupida que presenta bastante buena retención. Aromas de malta y cítricos con ligero sulfuro. Entrada de cítrico dulzón. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación media. Las sutiles notas de miel junto al bajo amargor definen un final bastante empalagoso.

Sweet citric upfront. Light body. Medium carbonation. Watery texture.Subtle honey & low bitterness in the middle resolve in a rather cloying finish.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in golden with small head. Nose of some malt and rice. Tastes bit like rice mixed with some lemon. OK to kill your thirst. In the end definitely below average.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from a Russian store in Vienna, shared with ogivlado and heavy. Poured a yellow-golden body with a tiny white head. Déjà vu to the max. Crap vegetabley strange malty nose. WHY? Sweetish malty taste with more strange vegetable-like notes. Crap.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
0.5 l transparent bottle from Russian shop in Vienna. It poured pale golden body with medium sized head. Stinky, offensive vegetables hop aroma (and it was not past BB date). Weak flavor, sweetish honey and floral malt. Some weird fruitiness. Thin in body with shorter honey finish. Drinkable to the certain degree. Not the worst beer of the day, but surely it got worst aroma ever!

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Watery and bland, but it sure looks good. No aroma, no flavor, but a nice fluffy head. I understand that the pale lagers aren’t pilseners, but this is just plain ordinary...

Clear yellow with very fluffy but firm foam head. Aroma is somewhat sweet bitter, taste is flaw, small caramel and short bitter aftertaste. Strange foma head. (Moscow 201206)
