2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Pours hazy light amber with a medium white head and good lacing. Aroma is grain, grass, quite light overall. Flavor is the same, light sweet and light bitter. Clear step up from the "premium" but nothing special. Light body.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is herby hops, malt and yeast with a very fresh feel. Pale colour, hazy, nice long lasting head with good lacing. Medium bitterness. Average carbonation. Tastes like a beer from a micro-brewery and has something Czech in its character. Altogether, a pleasure to drink and in my opinion the best Romanian beer. 50 cl draft.

Draught in Cluj. Cloudy tan. The aroma is a little bit yeasty on the nose. Slightly spicy, yeasty, with some freshness and malt character. Just a touch of that signature spicy hop. Decent, nice to see this beer in the home of Ursus.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at at Bulgakov cafe in Cluj (nice place with super patio). Nicely hazed, dark yellow-gold with white head. Aroma is pleasantly yeasty, and reminiscent of kit beer. And so is the palate, but it is super refreshing. I wish those hops overpowered the yeast but it still has a really pleasant character. as palate attenuates, the hops do come out and it never feels tacky--in fact, i could easily drink more and do...
