2.6/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall foamy white head that exhibits good retention (with over 50% of the head remaining throughout drinking). Significant lacing is observed.

S: The smell is very similar to an American Adjunct, lots of corn and grain as well as sweet. There was a slight hint of skunkiness with this beer.

T: Very light flavor but it is highlighted by corn, grain, and skunk. There is absolutely no bitterness.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: While the appearance of the beer is good, the smell and taste are not as good. Not real easy to drink or enjoyable because of the skunk-like flavor.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Man does this beer look boring. Dull yellow color with almost no head or lace and crystal clarity. Nose is sweet and at least slightly more interesting.

The taste is not good but not quite terrible. A touch of early hops balances the caramel malt but then everything breaks down. Medicine and sawdust are the notes I get in the finish. Not much going on here but another eastern European country I can mark off my list.

500 mL bottle, with best by date of July 7 2012 clearly printed out. why can't every brewery do this?

golden in color, crystal clear. big bright white head. good head retention. smells not so good, like an adjunct lager. tastes clean, mildly sweet. as bit of cooked corn flavor. thin, medium carbonation. easy to drink.

overall- a bit disappointed. but at least I can say I've had a beer from Romania!

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Bought a 1 PINT bottle of this @ Ava Sofia in St. Louis, MO for $6. Poured from the Blue/Red/Tan labeled bottle into a 16oz Pint Glass. Has Best before: DEC 04TH-2012 on the back label of the bottle.

Aroma- Very clean, malty and toasted grain is all included in this aroma. Expected as a lager and the slightest noble hop aroma.

Appearance- Pours a 1.5 finger head that dies almost immediately. Has a light copper, crystal clear body. Leaves no sign of lacing afterwards.

Flavor- Very soft characteristics including malt and grain make up the entire taste. Very light bitterness and a tad on the sweet side.
Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, Crisp, Smooth, but then watered down on the finish. Needs a bit more character.

Overall Impression- I ordered this purely to enjoy a new brew I’ve never had from Romania. Even while visiting Romania for a whole month, I didn’t go after anything special while abroad so its catch up time! This particular lager wasn’t anything special but suited the style. Wouldn’t go out of my way to enjoy this again but will check this off my list of “refreshing lagers”.

2.98/5  rDev +12%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a pint bottle...

Appearance: Pours a clear crystal yellow with a strong 3 finger fluffy head; quickly dissipating. Fluff lacing all around the glass. Beautiful carbonation rushing to the head.

Smell: Grain, corn, malt, mild hops.

Taste: Simple - heavily grained with a mild hop balance.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and refreshing. A standard European beer here with not much motivation outside of century old tradition.

Overall: Basic by all means. Solid quality beer but nothing enthusiastic about it.

2.6/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a massive two finger high bright white head that has excellent retention properties and left lots of lacing running down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light to moderately strong aromas of adjunct malts in the nose—corn and grain seem to stand out in particular—along with some hints of skunkiness.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and has flavors of corn and grainy malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This smell and taste of this beer seem to be very similar to other American Adjunct Lagers and aren’t very notable.

3.63/5  rDev +36.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look – golden color, clear, with about two or two-and-a-half fingers’ worth of frothy, almost khaki-colored foam that dissipates somewhat slowly.

Smell – strongly malty, like a pilsener. In fact, it smells like a lot of the Bavarian pale lagers that I’ve had before.

Taste – the taste is much like the smell. It’s malty, sweet, and with just a tinge of bitterness that starts in the middle and persists through to the finish.

Mouthfeel – pretty well balanced, but it does lean more toward the watery side.

Overall – not a bad brew at all, but not very interesting to think about.

2.55/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Nose pretty cool, recalling the Czech pilseners. The mouth is slightly stronger than the models of their kind, including the first entry. The key is also more alcohol - which is strange for a beer of this ABV - but hops are also dirtier. Body midway between sweet and grassy. Finish still pretty weak and bland but always with the presence of grass.

Serving type: nitro-can
