2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tall Boy Can. Lager glass shows typical clear piss color. Decent enough head, light lace down the glass. Weak nose of hay. Fairly dry taste with some light pale malt and corn notes. Body is thin and watery. A strange mild hop does liger in the finish.
Overall in the world of lagers it is below average. Not the worse I’ve had but…. The only good thing here for me is, I got to tick Romania as a country.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bought a 1 PINT bottle of this @ Ava Sofia in St. Louis, MO for $6. Poured from the Blue/Red/Tan labeled bottle into a 16oz Pint Glass. Has Best before: DEC 04TH-2012 on the back label of the bottle.
Aroma- Very clean, malty and toasted grain is all included in this aroma. Expected as a lager and the slightest noble hop aroma.
Appearance- Pours a 1.5 finger head that dies almost immediately. Has a light copper, crystal clear body. Leaves no sign of lacing afterwards.
Flavor- Very soft characteristics including malt and grain make up the entire taste. Very light bitterness and a tad on the sweet side.
Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, Crisp, Smooth, but then watered down on the finish. Needs a bit more character.
Overall Impression- I ordered this purely to enjoy a new brew I’ve never had from Romania. Even while visiting Romania for a whole month, I didn’t go after anything special while abroad so its catch up time! This particular lager wasn’t anything special but suited the style. Wouldn’t go out of my way to enjoy this again but will check this off my list of “refreshing lagers”.
