It is of a beautiful dark golden colour with a deep lustre. It has the color of honey and the transparency of spring water, as well as an excellent body and taste. It is very well saturated with carbon dioxide and has a pleasant, noble hops bitter, as well as a unique malt-hops taste.

darioklc (706) - Karlovac, CROATIA - OCT 22, 2014
Darker gold, light bubbles floating through the body with a minimal head which comes off white. It is full and creamy taste. Sticky, especially paired with sharp cheddar I can’t get enough of how complimenting the after-taste is.

Alengrin (4536) - BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2014
Typical Eastern European strong lager with off-white head, deep golden blonde colour and one-dimensional aroma of sweet pale malts, corn and alcohol; taste likewise, grainy, off-putting sweet corn and lots of wry alcohol in the finish. Petrol for alcoholics, unsuitable for the craft beer afficionado.

stevoj (3944) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle from Tres Bonne Cuisine. Pours a dark gold, sweet and syrupy. Sweet candy malt and corn dominate the aroma. Small airy head disappears almost immediately. Taste is cooked vegetables, sweet malt. Overall not bad once you get past the sweetness, not as funky/musty as some.
