2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy straw, soapy bubbles and doesn’t last. Yeast, malt/barley, some skunk. Taste was similar but with a fruitiness that was a nice bonus. A little sweet, sugary, just a touch.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bought this from a shop by Cantillon and it was truly awful. It offended in every way, skunky aroma and a taste that I can only describe as bad.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draught, several cups. Some malt and sweetness, finishing with a light astringent, light bitterness. Boring and not really quaffable.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Typowy koncernowy eurolager, gorszy w smaku niż Silva w wersji jasnej. Warta do wypicia tylko jako ciekawostka z Rumunii.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From old ratings. Bottle in Romania. Pale yellow colour, white foam, disappears quickly. Malty with light bitter finish. Easy drinkable, no body.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Una buona lager, nella media seppur commerciale. Molto beverina, non troppo gasata, colore dorato un po’ pallido, schiuma fine, retrogusto piacevole
