Classic Carlsberg nose with some mild hops and citrus fruits with a bit of piss in its back. Easily drinkable, dry and grassy with a nice, well balanced ending. One of the best so far from the former USSR.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Light yellow body, small head. Aroma has very light hints of lager malt. Watery taste with some mineral water and later some diluted malt. No major off-tastes but so very boring and watery. I didn’t expect anything so I’m not disappointed about the taste or the lack of it. At least I ticked a new country!

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can from Carrefour in Tbilisi. Pale, clear, yellow. Head white, fizzy, stays for some time and leaves some lacing. Grainy, corny, starchy aroma... basement, sewage, earthworms... Uuugh. Taste is somewhat better but still on the "uuugh" level... wet cardboard malts with some herbal bitterness. Terrible stinging bitter finish... body medium (not exactly a thirst quencher-medium), carbonation lively. Overall? Llike carbonated cardboard water with some hop essence... Daamn!

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Sweaty, skunky hops and corn in the aroma. Pretty bad. Rather watery but also somehow heavyish, in terms of the lack of quaffability. Nice, pils-like bitterness with some grainy notes rounds it off. Not that bad. Tastes definitely better than it smells.
