1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Green half-litre bottle, reviewed just before it became out of date (May 2011).
Mid gold, pilsner yellow, no head to talk about, or collar actually.
Another Romanian beer that should have stayed at home. I picked this up near my sons new place in London, wish I hadn’t.
No aroma, no taste and nothing going for it, a nothing beer. I suppose it could be called refreshing if you’d done manual labour for 20 hours and needed something wet to stop your mouth from drying out and your human organs dieing: otherwise give it a miss.
One of the most boring beers/lagers I’ve ever encounted.
The scores of 3 for looks and smell are my default numbers for a standard looking pils/lager and for the typical odourless ones too: otherwise I could have been a whole lot more cutting in my scoring.

500ml can. It is a light, little watery beer with a lo of taste. :) Some smoke, hop, malt, rotten egg and a bit of grass you can feel in it. Not bad but it is far from good. And very cheap.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
In can, thanks Craig. Pours a straw colour with a thick white head that dies away early. Aroma of bready yeast and caramel. A similar bready flavour with moderate carbonation and a metallic linger.

Can courtesy of cgarvieuk. Very pale yellow colour, frothy white head slowly fades to nothing. grassy nose, slightly lager metallic. Dull, bready boringness on the palate. Notes of boring. Very slight grassy boring yeasty lager finish. Boring. Not "BAD", but boring.
