2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Pours a pale amber with a lacy white head. Floral aroma with a smidgeon of grass. Light, watery body with fizzy carbonation. Taste is almost non-existent. Finish has an almost imperceptible piney quality. Seems far too polite.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can shared with JMD at HNB 24.03.15. Clear, pale golden. White, and fairly persistent, off-white head and lacing. A little aroma of fresh grass. A slight hint of European hops in taste, and one can almost sence some bitterness in aftertaste. Yet another bland Eurolager, but with no obvious off-taste. Perhaps a little bit too sweet.

Powerful white foam. Clearly smell yeasty and slightly sour. As for the taste of it: just Lager, minimal bitterness. Very light and refreshing, perfect for summer.

0,4 flaske fra Bulgarsk mad i Rantzausgade: klar gylden med skum som faktisk varer. Lite aroma, og smaken minner dessverre om kokt blomkål.

500ml bottle from dnicolaescu. ABV is 4.7%, although this is the Moldova-brewed version. Pours pale yellow with a short-lived soapy white head. Aroma of malt, grain. Taste is similar. Finish is slightly bitter. Decent pale lager.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Super pale yellow color, minor head. Light bready-malt aroma. Very gentle malt flavor. Almost no hop character perceivable -- low hop flavor, aroma and bitterness. Body is actually fuller than I'd expect -- on the upper end of light body. Very clean. Clean finish and aftertaste. Maybe a hint of a mineral note mid taste.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2015 Can. 5.0%. Best before 23.03.15. Pours a clear, rather pale yellow with a diminishing white head. Bit of lacing. Aroma is dry and slightly tart, with cereals and a hint of cooked vegetables. Dryish cereal flavour with a bit of hops and a light grainy note. Fruity note as it warms. Dry, mild to medium bitter finish, with light hops, cereal and fruity notes. Lingering grainy note and a hint of apple. Has a somewhat watery feel. Overall drinkable, but only just. 04.02.15.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light yellow and pale transparent in color. Poured from a can into a teku glass.
Lots of sweet malts and very faint hints of honey on the nose.
The palate is light-medium bodied. Mostly a lot of a sweetness from the malts. Barely any bitterness. Reminds of a typical German style lager.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Sampled from a 500ml can with the marking ’Premium Luxury Pils’. Purchased from the Magazin Romanesc in Friern Barnet. A very pale golden colour with a white head. Little aroma, and very light taste. Slightly sweet and hardly any hop flavour at all. Extremely forgettable. I think I’ll throw rest of the glass away and drink something decent instead.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
550ml can: BBD 8th Apr 15. A gift from my son. Shared at home on 28th Dec 14, a blind tasting with a can of UK brewed Carlsberg. This won on all counts actually, not that it means a great deal as the Carlsberg was ’pants’. Bright golden body, small white unlasting head. The nose and taste was fairly grainy and metallic, semi-sweet in nature. Refreshing and crisp enough, but lacks any outstanding character or interesting flavours.

Got a plastic bottle of this stuff and I find that both fascinating and fullfilling. This is a solid Pilsner like lager from Romania. It’s dry and nice and bitter. It is a bit skunky even though the plastic bottle was brown but nothing too bad and the off flavors dissipate quickly and are at least partially made up for by a nice bready malt character. Definitely a tast brew and I’d love to try some fresh.
