2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 Bottle, thanks Ia and Palle! Golden, low head and carbonation. Fairly neutral straw malt aroma. Cookie malt, mellow, a bit sparkly mouthfeel, the barest of hop counterpoints, bready and cornlike aftertaste. Nothing technics; wrong with it, but balanced towards the malty a bit too much for my taste.
Bottle at Tbilisi airport. Pours clear golden with a fine, white, short-lived head with some lacing. Aroma of malts and grass. Tastes malty, butter with a faint bitterness. High carbonation, watery, refreshing. Typical lager. ectuohy27 (1191) - ESTONIA - AUG 1, 2017
Off-hop/armpit-like aroma but recovers well, with a decently lively CO2 matching a somewhat crisp, solidly malty, not obviously flawed middle and finish. Probably a more reliable choice for Georgian lager buffs (16.9 oz bottle, Carrefour Tbilisi) tderoeck (9924) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2017

Clear blond to orange beer, big creamy off-white head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: malty, sweet, grains, hay, cow fodder. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: very malty, grains, bit metallic, pretty bitter, bit sweet, slightly oxidized, bit metallic. Aftertaste: sweet, malty, grains, hay, cow fodder. Nothing special, as expected.
Standard pale lager from Georgia, shared by tderoeck at his place, thanks for the country tick Tim! Snow white, irregular, moussy, lightly lacing head, sustained by fierce strings of champagne-like fizz, raging through a pure ’old gold’ coloured, clear beer. Aroma of soggy popcorn, flour, straw, grass, white bread, touch of sourdough, sweaty grains. Sweetish ’dry breakfast’-cereally flavour with a sourish grainy side, feeling like an all-malt beer actually, fizzy and minerally carbonation, slick and bit glueish mouthfeel. Bread crust-like maltiness is accompanied by a grassy ’end’ hop bitter touch a bit more so than I am used to from the style, but simple cereally sweetishness stays the main factor. Still a bland pale lager, but quite alright for what it is, really. TBone (17680) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2017

Bottle. A clear, golden beer topped by a finger-thick, dense, off-white head. The aroma is lightly fruity, with some pale malts in the back. The flavor is much the same, with very little bitterness. Medium to thin body, smooth carbonation. Frutiy finish. Very easy drinkable and unoffensive. In a way. 161231
