Picked this up from the rothschild szupermarket at oktogon.

Nice drinkability is about the most i can say for this average beer. Although i do not think all too highly of it, it is one of the better beers I have had in Hungary so far (that soesnt say much).

Drinking out of a bottle does not give me much room to judge appearance but it does have a nice frothy head. The smell is not very strong, what one would expect out of a beer of this nature. The taste reveals a hint of fruitiness that i cant quite pinpoint.

Worth the 220 FT i paid for it!

The content pours a dark amber color coverd with a decent geige coloured frothy head.
There is a sweet and roasted aroma complemented by some chocolate smell in the background.
The taste starts pleasantly sweet, slight roasty feel included, followed by some bitterness in the body, finishing with a slightly neutral feel.
Easy to drink, smooth. Very decent.

3.35/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours dark amber with foamy and slightly off-white head that slowly dissipates. Decent lacing.

The aroma is mildy sweet and roasted malt. Taste is sweetish burnt caramel with slight bite of bittery hops and quite sweet and long lasting aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is medium with moderate carbonation, but I would expect something more smooth.

Overall, this is quite simple beer (maybe lacks character), but it is not very bad - just about average.

I got this can from a colleague who was working in Hungary for some time.

The colour is dark amber/pale brown. The firm three finger head is uneven, airy and firm.

The smell is a bit roasted and bittersweet. There are some notes of toffee and a hint of raisins.

The taste is sweet with a lightly roasted note, but there are also some bitter hops and a fruity flavour and an odd touch of wet paper. The aftertaste is smooth with a slowly a lightly roasted note, but there are also some bitter hops and a fruity flavour and an odd touch of wet paper. The aftertaste is smooth with a slowly declining anonymous bitterness that is replaced by a caramel-sweet malty flavour.

The mouth feel is not as smooth as Vienna lagers usually are; the carbonation is at times prickly on the tongue, maybe a cover-up for the lack of character?

A not too interesting beer, but on the other hand I have understood that this is one of the few beers in Hungary that is not a adjunct pale euro lager.
