Very pale yellow colour. Light aroma. Taste of light herbal hops, and metal. Quite watery. I wouldn’t drink another. Fatehunter (2605) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 20, 2013
A half finger of head on a clear, yellow colored body. Poor head retention.
The aroma is grain and a stale clover honey. Weird.
The taste is quite bitter with a high level of dryness and pucker factor. Not good.
The texture is crisp with a ton of carbonation and light body.
There’s too much going against this beer. DanielBrown (4532) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2012
Can from Istanbul Supermarket, Smethwick. Notes of cinder toffee. Other notes of cellophane wrapping, perhaps enclosing some flowers, which are being taken to a brassy paramour at work. Always a bit risky making a move on someone at work. Anyway, this Romanian lad is friskily fizzy, urbanely crisp and sheet ice-like; coupled with a hesitation of coco malt. The flavours are confidently low-key (i.e. there isn’t that much flavour). But blow me, this is delicious - it tastes like that beer in Ice Cold in Alex - well earned. 3000 rates is nonsense of course - a meaningless milestone. And yet, oh and yet, it’s also a chance to reassess one’s life progress. And this is where I am - live tweeting a can of Romanian Lager. Whisper it, but I think I just might have ’made it’.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks eyes_wide_shut. Clear pale golden. Aroma of corn, a bit of hay and light grassy notes. Sweetish and grainy flavor with a bit of grassy hops notes in a mildly bitter finish. Light-bodied. Not too offensive. 3/2/4/2/7=1.8
Bottle. Following my Romanian wife into the world of "wonderful" Romanian beer. Pours pale yellow with a small white head that dissipates quickly with some residual lacing. Aroma is grain, hay, corn syrup. Flavor is about the same, a bit of green apple. Lightly sweet, light grassy bitter finish. Not bad for a pale lager.

500ml can. Pours golden yellow, clear with lively carbonation, an average white head with good lacing and okay retention. Aroma of hops, malt, . Taste is crisp with a malty sweetness. some mild bitterness. Not bad, but really nothing special. It’s surprisingly decent though. inbirraveritas (1611) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 17, 2012
