Bottle in Romania - Strong, spicy beer with slightly bitter finish. To be honest I was quite easily convinced to stick to this beer, when I discovered it in a bar.

CAN 50 L. Dusty cereals, light pale malts, grassy hops. Taste - cheap grains, chlorophyll lightly acid bitterness. Clean, free of fusels. Just a regular industrial lager.

Bottle. The aromas are somewhat decent for a lager, but the mostly grainy notes are rather boring, together with an uncharacteristic, slightly off grass like smell to it. Flavour is sweetish, a bit of malt, and just this general non-crisp background that you find in many lagers. The texture is not watery, which saves its mild body from becoming totally uninteresting, but the general impression is not that good. Still better than some that you can find, but I feel that it needs something more - a more engaging presence of hops, or a cleaner crisp, refreshing character on palate would have done a lot for this beer.

Ursus Black
Pours dark with an average head. The aromas are complex, which surprises me for a fairly mainstream beer (according to those I was drinking it with). Malts, a bit of burnt sugar and coffee-like notes appear in them. The flavour profile is better than many other Schwartzbier, caramel comes in very well balanced, with a nice palate too.

Ursus Premium
Maybe a bit better than the standard Eurolager. Crisp, refreshing and drinkable. The aroma is pretty plain, as that of most other lagers, but the overall character in the taste is passable, with a finish that is not "way too short". The palate is mostly watery, just a bit oily too. Not the King of Beer in Romania, but OK for the style.

Ursus Untold ( but since I suppose it will be limited edition only for festival, I will write here). Clear yellow colour with medium foam, decent smell of cereals and grass, medium bitter, overall it is an ok beer for its price (0.6 euros can from supermarket)

Can from the Romanian shop on Cricklewood. Golden colour, thin foam. Reasonably clean malty lager with a definite but slightly harsh hop bitterness. Not the worst.

Ursus Premium
The beer has a simple look, which is normal for the style. The color of the beer is a light golden yellow. The beer is very very clear, as clear as water. Some bubles are rising towards the top. The beer pours a little amount of rough white foam. The smell is quite nice. There is a nice malt aroma and a lovely nutty hop aroma. I like this in a light beer. It reminds me a bit of Warsteiner beer. The taste has the same aspects. There is this lovely nutty aspect. This is a nice hoppy touch. I really like this. Good start of my stay in Romania.

The beer has quite a normal look. Itís just a pilsener. The color is golden yellow and on top of the beer a normal layer of white foam is formed. It doesnít look very special. Just a good pilsener. The smell is average. Itís 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. Itís 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.

Can 0,50L. Courtesy of Kita. Clear golden color with large, long lasting, compact white head and low visible carbonation. 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.
