Ursus Black
On can. Pours dark brown, with a rich, brown-ish head. Aroma is not that great: roasted malt, left-over coffee, even hints of soy sauce. But you can feel a bit of hopiness going around. After it rests a bit in the glass it gets better: caramel, brown sugar, and the coffee aroma is more pronounced. Taste is sweet, with a slight hint of bitterness. Flavors that come up: roasted coffee, toasted brown bread, malts. Alcohol feel is slightly higher than 6%. Decent industrial. Oh, and as I recall from my college years, more than 2 cans give me one memorable headache in the morning.

Can from Grosik Euro Supermarket, Banbury. Gold, light fizz, negligible head. Sweet throughout. Sweetcorn dominates with some mild grassy citrussy lager hops. It’s not great. But it’s not undrinkable.

50cl can from a Mini market in Rimini. Pours clear, very pale golden with a modest, fast dissipating, white head. Grainy aroma with notes of cooked vegetables and hints of honey and ripe fruits. Somewhat sweet and grainy and not much bitterness. Not very pleasant, more flavour than expected, but unfortunately not pleasant ones. Why did I buy this one?

BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear golden, creamy white head. Aroma: clean subtle sweet bread and just a touch of fresh grass - not too hoppy though. Super clean pale malts, crisp body, clean crisp finish. Alas, very low bitterness; on the other hand - no harsh macro-hops. Clean, without being watery. More like a helles, but not a bad one.

50cl can from a Mini market in Rimini. Pours clear golden with a modest, white head. Fairly standard pale lager, mild grainy aroma and just hints of hops. Mild flavours and bitterness, but nothing unpleasant going on. More body than expected, but still not very interesting, but drinkable enough.

Bottle 0,50L. Courtesy of Kita. Clear golden color with small, creamy, white head. Bready and slightly citrusy aroma. Suprisingly no skunk aroma, though beer was in the green bottle... Taste starts light citrusy. become light bitter for the moment and finish light sweet. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Had this one to add Romania on my beer map.

Bottle 500 ml (clearly better that the canned version of this beer) Dark brown colour with a fluffy beige head. Aroma is of roasted malts, candy sugar and some yeast.. Taste of roasted malts, dark chocolate, candy sugar and some mild bitterness. Toasty! Refreshing finish. Not very complex but surprisingly tasty or a macro.

Can, regular version (from billa, Timisoara). Pours yellow. Aroma is sweet, grains, cardboard, faint citric notes. Flavor is sweet, cardboard, some citric sourness, grains. Body is watery. Overall: rather bad.
can (as timisoreana lux premium pils). More metallic some wet paper, a lot more hoppy (like pils), no sourness or citric notes. It’s also darker (amber). I would say it’s not alias of the regular version, but i guess admins know better, right?! Rating for lux premium pils: 4:3:5:3:9=2.4

Pale lager pasteurisé de 5 % abv, pour 11,1° plato. Antériorité de la brasserie ŕ 1718, c’est impressionnant. Grand prix pour cette bičre en 1908, ŕ la belle époque. Le brasseur la qualifie de "premium pils de luxe". Nez de malt, babeurre, léger houblon vert. 1čre bouche douce, nettement mieux que le nez, malt/houblon sympa. 2čme encore mieux, fondue, presque jolie. La suite et fin sont du męme acabit. CONCLUSION : on reste dans le simple, et dans la lager, mais bien fait. Comme la premičre que j’avais goűtée de cette brasserie, ce n’est donc pas du tout un hasard ...

Redd’s Lemon Fresh
BOTTLE 40 CL. Clear golden, white head. Apart from from subtle beery notes (pils malts, some grassy hops) in the nose, it drinks as a sweet slightly boozy cheap lemonade. I even get some pickles in the after-taste. Horrible.

Golden color with a modest bigger bubbled white head. Interesting scents of dark fruit (prunes and plums) along with wild honey and iron. Sweet and grainy. Some tin can and vegetables. Rather industrial for a lower ABV eastern bloc brew. 1/11
