500ml bottle from the shop, drunk at home. Pours clear with a short-lived frothy head. Dark amber in colour, almost orange. Fruit, bread, wheat on the nose. Complex fruit, yeast, resin and bitterness in the mouth. Not the best mouth feel, sweet, bitter, lacking real body. Overall, more interesting than a run-of-the-mill lager, but not by much.

15-07-2017; bottle; at home (bought somewhere in Moscow, Russia).
The look of the beer re average. A bit simple though. The colour of the beer is a lovely amber, with a golden touch. The beer is crystal clear. Some small bubbles can be seen rising towards the top. On top of the beer a nice layer of slightly rough and soft white foam is formed. Foam retention is average. After a while a thin soft layer is left to cover the beer. Not bad.
The smell isn’t bad, but it also isn’t rally good. Lower limit of average i guess. I smell some malts, giving bready sweetness, and some simple bitter hops. There seems to bee a caramel touch. Quite simple, but not bad.
The taste even weaker. Not bad, but rather weak and soft and it lacks power. There is a bready malty touch, some bitter hops and thats it. A bit watery even. It tastes (and smells) lightly hopped, almost like malt syrup. Meh. Other beers from this brand are better.
Palate of the beer is bad. Medium body, very watery texture, low carbonation. The finish is extremely short and watery. All in all, it is not a disgusting beer, but to mild, to watery and to simple. I expected more.

Head quickly disappears entirely. Clear brown still body. Caramelly rye bread aroma with spicy raisiny notes. Sweet earthy sugary caramel taste with papery notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, hot mouthfeel. Sweet bready caramelly aftertaste with raisiny spicy notes. Nice, drinkable. (Bottle from Russian supermarket, St Petersburg.) GhostS (425) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 10, 2017
Aromă slabă, predominant malț, ceva malț caramelizat și paie proaspete. Gust moale, predominant malț ușor caramelizat cu puțină dulceață, ceva grâne proaspete, paie, puține drojdii. Bună și curată. MartyW (282) - DENMARK - MAY 20, 2017
500ml bottle. dark golden colour with small dissappearing white head. Aroma of malt and a bit of honey. Taste the same. Like a more bland Tuborg Classic. Meh. tlind2 (1755) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2017

Helder lichtbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zoet met iets van mout en karamel. Best goed bier.
