3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium offwhite head; yellow body with ongoing carbonation. Sweet fruity aroma. Taste is again very fruity and sweetish with notes of metal and grass. Quite bitter. Bitter, metallic grassy aftertaste. Some chalk. There are some alcohol notes, but not enough to detract from the beer. With a bit less bitterhops (and some more aroma hops, maybe Amarillo) this could be a really good beer. As it is, it’s quite good. (0.5l bottle.)
Dark amber, medium bodied and pretty flat. Aroma of alcohol, flavor is sweetish and the long finish not so pleasant. Travlr (31266) - No fixed abode, Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2012
Bittle at Chisinau central market. Clear pale yellow color, medium white head. Aroms of straw and paper. Taste is flat and bitter. envane (586) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Hazy yellow with a white head. Big vegetal aroma. Taste is syrupy sugar sweet malt with some light hops. seymour (2587) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Tasted from bottle into pint glass. Poured a clear, light amber color with weak white foam which immediately dissipated, no lace. Unpleasant aromas of adjunct sugars, moldy bread, alcohol. Cloying adjunct sweetness, oxidation, no trace of hops. Low carbonation. Medium body with greasy mouthfeel, awful aftertaste. I hope this was sitting around way past its prime, because my bottle tasted just like a crappy high-gravity gas-station malt liquor. I couldn’t handle more than a few sips. jkwood04 (5873) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 20, 2011
1pt .9oz bottle in a shaker. Pours light golden with a lacy white head. Aroma pretty standard for a pale lager, but a little more bitterness and alcohol to it. Cereal and bread notes strong. Average texture. Would rather drink this than a lot of American lagers, but that’s not saying much.

Pours golden with brown taints and a white thick head, aroma of cheese, lemon, malt and rice, flavor of cardboard, malt, herbs, malt and cookies, quite watery. cheap (8263) - Land of Taxes, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Label on this bottle is totally different than this, must be this is the american version of the label. Looks like pale lager. Nice creamy head. Smell is a bit processed and metallic. Taste is a tad rubbery and bitter. Not hop bitter however, just rude bitter. This stuff reminds me of Rinkuškiai style beers. Rude crude and gets the dizzying job done. Strong personality of high gravity beer. Gets down to business. Bitter volatile medicine finish. Will not purchase again. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2010

bottle, sickly sweet corn aroma with a sticky white head. flavor is kind of flat bitter, not what I expected. pretty unappealing. fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Underrated, in my opinion. For starters it’s very cheap considering you get a pint of 7.2% ABV beer for around $2.50. In terms of flavor it’s not the greatest, but it’s still a lot better than some bud/miller/coors type of lager. And it masks the alcohol very well, making it a fine session beer. I would buy it again.
