Gorbalev's rating

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle, LCBO. Dark yellow, medium creamy white head. Aroma of hay, cereal, and a vit of yeast as well. Mouthfeel is full; a surprise for the style, and adds greatly to the beer. taste is decent - sort of tinny hops you come to expect fr0m European lagers, but also a nice amount of bready and cereal like malt as well. This one grew on me - I was not impressed at first, but through the whole glass quite a bit of flavour emerged. Certainly a cut above in this category.

kramer (6658) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2017
Pours a clear gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is a bit off, a light bit of funkiness that has no part in a California common. Little to no malt makes it past this weird fruity, lightly acidic, and slightly chemical tasting beer. There is certainly something going on with this beer. Lighter bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a too-long lingering finish. An obvious flaw going on in here.

Juks (343) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 7, 2017
From tap at Kaldi pub, Reykjavik. Hazy amber with medium sized ehite head lasts very good. Aroma is malty, bready, some tart, herbal hops, some fart. Taste is tart bready, herbal hoppy, quite bitterish. Quite strong body, medium carbo, lively carbo in aftertaste. Nice one! I like this bready taste here very much.

gegwilson (3645) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2016
Bottle from a Vínbúdin in Reykjavik. Pours amber with a frothy off white head. Light mango aroma. The taste more mango before a crisp bitter citrus finish. Ligt and refreshing.

nybol (1731) - DENMARK - MAR 13, 2016
Hold da op en god pilsner. Den har en skarp humlet smag, jeg ved ikke om der er brugt aromahumle men den smager af noget frugtagtigt. Der er ikke meget brus i den, men det gřr ikke noget, det forstćrker bare oplevelsen af at man sidder pĺ island og drikker en "rustis" řl.

The foam is serious and persistent and it bubbles nicely in the glass. It has a really welcoming malty aroma with a slight touch of flower and hops. The taste is very dominant of caramel malt, and at the end results in a gentle hoppy aftertaste which is relatively long-lasting. A little flower, I also think being able to taste in the final.

tricksta_p (4315) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2015
From tap at Micro Bar, Reykjavik. Aroma of grainy malt, cereal, fruity notes, hoppy notes. Flavour is moderate bitterness. The cereal is strong in this one. Refreshing.
