50cl can shared with Deanso. Clear golden color, medium sized white head. Smell and taste malts, metallic and lightly stale. Could be worse though.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml can from local East European shop. I’ve often passed this by in the shops because I thought I’d had it - but it was the Zubr Premium I’d had. Chrissie got it for me as part of a bunch of beers for my birthday. As it turns out, the majority of them are scoops! The beer is actually a little boring. A sweetish pale lager with modest hops. Not quite strong enough to be interesting - but sort of heading there. A bit grainy and almost syrupy.

Can. It pours a clear, golden body under a finger-thick white head. Fruityness, grains and malty sweetness on the nose. Yellow apples and some pears. A hint of cooked vegetables. The flavor is on the fruity side, with some bitterness showing up towards the very end. A decent one, but not very interesting in any way

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2012 On tap. Aroma sour and musty, not appealing at all. Taste about the same. Rough and unpleasant. (also sampled on can, it was better)

Small shop in London. Nice packaging, familiar brand. "I have to try it." But I regret... Like "must" and beer. Not so good... (Maybe: soy sauce, raisin, licorice...)

500ml bottle from local Polski Sklep - a golden body, foamy white head. A mild nose, very sweet on the tongue. Not too bad, but had better...

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Helles Bernstein mit grobporigem Schaum, der schnell fort ist. Ein Aroma ist kaum auszumachen, etwas süßlich. Im Antrunk dann pappig süßlich, erinnert an Mais für Popcorn. Im Abgang dann ziemlich blechern hopfig mit Tendenz ins holzige. Bisonpisse!
