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 (17528) - 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 ElDesmadre (3627) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle. Has a surprisingly clean, grainy if also slightly sulfury profile. A tad watery but still evoid of any major flaws. Drinkable for what it is and certainly not the worst choice of a lager in Georgia. gopherfan99 (1826) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle; pours clear gold with fluffy white head; malty aroma with some hints of hops; taste is slightly sweet with malt; finish is light bitter and dry with some cardboard; typical east European pale lager..... not that good Kauge (1956) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle in Tbilisi. Clear pale golden. Nose... aaaaaa!! Skunky-grainy-sweaty pure awfulness. Taste... nearly as bad... Couldn’t do more than a couple of sips, this is god damn terrible.
