Finely sweet nose with some spices typical of Czech beer. The flavor here is a little more special because he feels ripe alcohol, which is not bad at all. The mouth is in the same register pilseners, that is to say, easy to drink, always with that side between the grassy and sweet. A good compromise in the style of beer from Plzen.

Serving type: nitro-can

Poured from a can bought last night at a non-stop kiosk with a nice foamy, frothy head and some lace. Very pale yellow color. Ligtht super light aroma of baer. Watery. Mild. Not much other than the head and lace. Almost no character. What finish? Go elsewhere if possible.

Green and gold 50cl can sampled from a supermarket in Iaşi, Romania. Standard sort of logo and a proudly displayed "Winner of the Gold Medal, Bruxelles 2003-2006".

Pale, clear yellow colour. Coarse bubbled white head which disappears to nothingness very quickly. Highly carbonated, almost too much.

Quite sweet, but reasonably fresh on the nose, a hint of hops, a sweet grainy sort of character. Smells like it will be smooth, but forgettable... Let's see, shall we?

Slightly sweet, sticky front palate, with a decent, lagery sort of flavour to it. I don't really know how else to describe it. It's slightly bitter, a little bit yeasty, but it just has that nice clean euro-lager character. It's not amazing, of course, but it has a certain nostalgia of the time before beer to me was big, hoppy and exciting. It's actually pretty smooth, pretty enjoyable and pretty drinkable. Mouthfeel is unfortunately too carbonated, a bit like seltzer water.

Overall, though, it's pretty drinkable. Pretty smooth, pretty clean. It's not a beer that's going to knock your socks off, but it goes down easily and you could drink a couple without too much trouble.

Notes: When I was out drinking with some Romanian colleagues later, I was informed that this beer is considered a "woman's beer". When I asked why, they said because it's quite sweet. It was still a fair bit better than a lot of the other Romanian swill like Ursus, Silva and Ciuc, though, so I continued to drink it.

Sampled from 500ml can, in Venice. Was unaware it was Romanian because of (what I was pretty sure was) Italian writting on the can.
Surpringly decent. A strong malt character. Aroma stays unoffensive again with considerable malt showing through. Some head would remain. A gritty mouthfeel, with presence. Carbonation at the right level, no unwanted aftertaste. Rather quenching, on par with - if not above - other macro swill canned lagers.
