Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - DEC 6, 2011
Состав: вода питьевая, солод пивоваренный ячменный, патока крахмельная (опечатка получилась знаковой – действительно, «крах хмеля»), хмель. Стильная этикетка, симпатичное на вид красноватое сверхгазированное пиво с легким солодовым ароматом. Вкус нейтральный, слегка отдает карамелькой. Скорее да, чем нет.

deletraz (27) - Lappeenranta, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2016

Wenn der ganze Malzsirup nicht wдre, dann kцnnte man das Bier ein wenig mehr respektieren, aber ansonsten ist dieses Zeug schon recht trinkbar, wenn auch sehr einseitig Richtung Malz und nochmal Malz ziehend. Daneben etwas Karamell und Nuss. Ganz ok.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 2, 2011
500ml can (Maxima, Kaunas)
5 Sweet malty aroma, rather feeble, but just a hint of ginger too.
3- light orange, tiny head after a fizzy pour.
5- Very simple grainy body, a little white-bready, sweetish, and perhaps a touch corny. Warmer, some estery retronasals come over.
2 Watery, but with pleasant carbonation. Very little to the finish, almost no hopping , just a tiny tingle, and the malts are thin with no staying power.
9 Fairly drinkable pale lager, more malts than many, and no obvious flaws.
