1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
courtesy of Dorin - light hazy amber beer under a solid creamy beige foam; light earthy aroma with metallic and sourish notes; sourish palate, moderate malt body, short earthy and gently caramelish aftertaste - bad and very surely past its prime
With thanks Dorin. Clear dark copper color, nice caramel aroma. Taste is quite crispy but that may be because it is the first beer in a month. Great. (Velp 201710) dcmchew (104) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - APR 21, 2017
BACKLOG: Nice old-timey look, but i’m probably being duped by the bottle. Pours amber/light brown, decent retention, two finger head. Smell of dark roasted malts, a bit of nuttiness, touch of caramel. Taste follows, mainly malty, with some sweet molasses and caramel. Dry nuts, a bit of soury zestiness. Mildly bitter roasted finish, with faint earthy hops. Fizzy, light body, easy to drink, rather refreshing in a way. A decent Moldavian beer, would try it again sometime.

Aroma of roasted malts, a bit yeasty, more well roasted malts to follow. Nice batch, but encountered deffects in this beer before. solidfunk (9366) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 28, 2016
Shouldn’t this be listed as an Altbier or something? Seems like what the name suggests. Some old oxidized copper vibe here like the green roof of Canadian Parliament. Doesn’t mesh super well. Hazy brown finish. Tap poured at Beer Shop into 1L plastic bottle in Chisinau.

Nice bronze color, good creamy foam. Aroma: caramel, malty, wort, sweet, boiled corn. Taste: a bit sweet, caramel, malty, a little hop, dried fruits. Not bad. GhostS (488) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUL 19, 2016
bottle // poor aroma, old wooden barrel, dumpy and slightly rotten - caramelized malt, stale grains, slightly caramelized sugar, herbs about rotting. medium taste - caramel, without sweetness, stale brown bread, some bitter herbs in the final. light body, medium acidity and carbonization.

500ml bottle (thanks dnicolasceu). Slightly hazy dark chestnut color. Tiny size, off-white head, stays. Metallic, sweet, caramel, copper in aroma. Caramel, roast, sweet, papery taste. Horrible dry papery and dusty hop extract in aftertaste. Messy. Nope. FatPhil (16953) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 7, 2016

Very sweet caramelly dark malt, almost kvassy aroma, quite nutty and papery, Can’t see a BB date, but this smells and tastes quite old. Prod 07/05/16 - so this is young. In that case I like it more, because this level of nuttiness is hard to find. Taste I’ve pretty much covered. Finish is very very dry, might be too dry for some, but this is just right for me.
Look: clear dark red with sparkling short living white head.
Aroma: caramel, light grassy hops.
Taste: light to moderate-light sweetness balanced with hoppy bitterness.
Flavour; roasted, caramel, sweet dark dried fruits, spicy and grassy hops.
Less sweet caramel finish.
