The beer has quite a normal look. It’s just a pilsener. The color is golden yellow and on top of the beer a normal layer of white foam is formed. It doesn’t look very special. Just a good pilsener. The smell is average. It’s just a pilsener, no more, no less. It has a nice sweet malty aroma, together with a bitter but simple hoppy touch. The taste is also not very special. It’s a bit to malty and the bitterness of the hops is not very pleasant. I have had better beers, but also worse. Just an average brew.

Can from the Romanian shop in Cricklewood. Standard light golden colour, white foam, sparkle. Remarkably inoffensive and unmemorable - light ever so slightly corny malt with a moderate hop bitterness. Lacked much hop flavour.

Refrigerated pint brown bottle, best before April 22, 2016, poured into a glass. Clear golden with medium white head. Aroma is light grain, light/medium body, lower carbonation, and good small-bubble lacing. Taste is light grain. Not bad considering, Romanian tick.

Aroma of malt, bread and dust, not really different from other lagers.Taste goes from light bitter to the step higher bitterness at the end of the sip, but still leaves some sweetness in mouth. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation.

Puszka 500ml. Janozlote piana biala szybko opadajaca. W zapachu jak i smaku dominuja chemiczne slody. Pierwszy lyk daje wrazenie plastikowego niedomytego naczynia. Ciezko cos wiecej napisac....piwo dla umierajacych na pustyni.

Dark beer with standar carbonation, brown head that dissipate quickly, at nose there are several yeasty notes that overcome on the expected malt ones, the flavor is quite good, lots of coffee and nuts flavours with a mild bitterness, but the overall balance is just ok. The aftertaste is quite metallic revealing the yeast again.

Along with Silva Bruna, one of the most solid commercial beers to be found in Romania. Pours a dense, dark colour with big, frothy light brown head that lingers for some time. Taste is full of coffee and a slight hint of caramel, walnuts and roasted malt. The alcohol could have been better masked and it will give you an awful hangover if you abuse it :)

500 ml. can sampled @ home. BBF 06.01.2016. Received as a gift, long time ago. Industrial sparkling golden, okay industrial egg-white head. Cooked vegetables nose, big industrial vegetable oil, chemical apple, plastic. Taste is nasty massively sweet cooked cabbage, chemical sweet industrial honey additives, white sugar, spoiled silk tofu. Industrial honey additives & cooking oil cloying. Really not good even by pale lager standard, harsh stuff.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with a failry decent and quickly settling off-white head. Malty aroma, some biscuity presence, though not too intense. Sweet and malty with some bitterness in the finish. Alcohol presence can be easily noted, slight warmth. Not too nice, but not completely unpleasant.

Not a good beer. Actually, not even a beer, considering the crappy ingredients used and the added ethylic alcohol, enzymes and additives.

Lattina. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il gusto al naso ha percezioni di orzo. Il cappello di schiuma ha una buona tenuta, a bollicine medie e carbonazione abbondante. La frizzantezza, media, persistente ed insistita, è data da bollicine fini. Il colore è giallo dorato. Il corpo è snello. L’aroma alla lingua è dolce medio e amaro percettibile. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è corta. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è semplice. Il retrogusto è veloce. Alla bocca l’aroma ha i sentori di pane, orzo e fiori.

Tap at Caru’ cu Bere. Hazy straw, white creamy head. Weak, but pretty clean aroma, light malts and a bit fruity. Just a bit of that young beer feel and some yeast, as the beer warms up. Taste: again, light sweetness, pretty clean, chewey body and a firm clean bitter finish. Pretty good actually.

Lattina 11.4º Plato. Il gusto al naso ha percezioni di mais, orzo e frumento. L’intensità olfattiva è leggera e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma è persistente, a bollicine medie e carbonazione abbondante. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. La frizzantezza è data da bollicine poche e fini, con carbonazione praticamente piatta. Il colore è giallo paglierino. Il corpo è leggero e scorrevole, ma anche acquoso. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di birra beverina. Il finale è pulito, dissetante e semplice. Il retrogusto è leggero. L’aroma in bocca rimanda a pane e orzo.

PET 2L. Clear deep golden, white frothy head. Very weak aroma of grains, white bread crust, herbs and some fusel. Similar taste, over-attenuated, with a harsh bitterness. Just a regular macro-lager. Drinkable.

Can, 0.50l, courtesy of Vlad, shared with colleagues. Pours clear golden with thin soapy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, cooked corn, paper and alcohol. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel, following is grassy and alcoholic with warming mouth feel and mild bitter finish. Light to medium body, sticky texture and average carbonation in palate. Sweet, relatively strong and not that bad it could be...

Many thanks to ciocanelu for this can! The beer starts fresh with lots of artificial lemon. The beer is not there, the lemonade is chemical with sweetener. The aftertaste is short with hints of lemon an not much aroma in total. Easy to drink but that’s it.
