Redds Lemon Fresh
BOTTLE 40 CL. Clear golden, white head. Apart from from subtle beery notes (pils malts, some grassy hops) in the nose, it drinks as a sweet slightly boozy cheap lemonade. I even get some pickles in the after-taste. Horrible.

Golden color with a modest bigger bubbled white head. Interesting scents of dark fruit (prunes and plums) along with wild honey and iron. Sweet and grainy. Some tin can and vegetables. Rather industrial for a lower ABV eastern bloc brew. 1/11

I bought this bottle at the drink of the world in ZŁrich, happy to get one beer of this country. It is a classical beer, nothing special, another in the hands of Miller. The color is yellow and gold, average carbonation, thin and white foam. The taste is malty, some hop, watery, small herbal notes, typical of these countries, refreshing during the summer.

500 ml bottle poured into a pilsener glass. The beer is a clear gold with a big head of white foam. The aroma is doughy and bready. Some mellow grassy and herbal notes come through in the taste. Moderately sweet. Lighter body and medium carbonation. Decent.

Finally, after 13680 something beers I find my first Romanian beer. A low ABV one even, what a thrill! Thank God it was cold as ice so I could actually finish the 50cl can of somewhat bitter grainy liquid. Still, not the worst beer ever by a long shot. Happy with the country tick!

50 cl can thanks to Anka (non-ratebeer) on August 28, 2016. BB 29.01.2017. 21:17 /6
Clear straw yellow to pale golden color, small but lasting white head. Sweet, grainy, slight vegetal scent. Sweet, dry, gypsum, slight bitter, vegetal, bell peppers taste. Grainy, dry, mineral aftertaste. Fizzy a bit astringent mouthfeel, medium dry harsh bitterness. Lasting grainy bitter finish.
Two of shared the can but still didnít finish it, wasnít really for us this one, but fun to taste and always appreciated when mates makes the effort to bring something I wouldnít normally find or taste on my own.

Timișoreana
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.

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.

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.
