3.4/5 rDev +22.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
This beer has lots of carbonation and a big head that sticks around well in a tall pilsner glass. The aroma is fairly mild and non descript but smells pleasantly of beer with the accent on malt.
Ursus tastes malty and a little bitter. It's very well balanced and flavoursome but lacks any herbal character or buttery notes which make the better Czech and German beers so delicious. There is however a hint of lemon and a nice lingering bitterness in the aftertaste.
Not a wonderful beer but certainly a solid and plesant lager. This would be a much better choice than mass market, big name euro pale lagers.
Final note: At the end of the drink foam lacing clings to the sides and a head is still present. That's always a good sign! And the can says it's "all malt" which is usually a good thing too and bourne out by the enjoyable if unexceptional drinking experience.

3.25/5 rDev +17.3%

Got it in can,i guess less better then in glass.
A - Nice big white head,pale orange color,few bubbles. Foam lasting more then few minutes.
S - Light citrus notes,pale malt. Nothing special in it.
T/M - Taste is more then decent,high bitter aftertaste,very close to Czech pilsner. Maybe a bit adjunct aftertaste,not so pleasant after you drink more then 2 cans. Also not so malty taste, but there is some decent amount of barley.
O - I know this is classic industrial EPL,but must admit that they made it more then fine.

From time to time i like to sip on a different macro-lager / pale lager so i can keep my quality referential rigorous and all encompassing. Also, i was curious to taste what i thought at the time was probably the most drank beer in Romania.
I had, of course, already heard mentions of this beer, on an online forum, by the ubiquitous user that insists in sharing his vast knowledge in beer by listing all the (macro) beers he's had in all the different countries he has been to.
This light yellow brew, emanates a very weak and bland aroma of noble hops and honey, the redeeming factor being that the aroma isn't all that unpleasant.
The taste doesn't really follow on the nose with strong vegetable and straw notes and a flat, slightly acidic, slightly bitter and watery palate.
Compared with other macro lagers / pale lagers i've tasted, it would probably rank in the bottom half overall and in the very last few when compared to only European counterparts.
