1 litre plastic bottle served cold into an unbranded bierkrug in me friend's gaff in Bucharest. Best before: 21.10.14. Expectations are low.

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

HEAD: White head. Fizzles out within 10 seconds.

BODY: Clear translucent yellow-copper of average vibrance. Clean; no yeast particulate or hop sediment is visible.

Standard appearance for the style overall. Unremarkable.

AROMA: Light aroma of generic helles malt sweetness and barley. That's it.

TASTE/TEXTURE: Helles malts, generic sweetness, low quality barley, and some syrupy malt character. Quite simple, but it has a loose cohesion.

Overly thick and hefty on the palate. Overcarbonated. Smooth and wet.

Average depth, duration, and intensity of flavour.

I like it in a general sense, but it leaves a lot to be desired.

OVERALL: It's a boring macrolager with nothing to offer the discerning drinker. About what you'd expect from a SAB Miller macrolager. Meh.

Pale yellow-gold, clear, fizzy white head with light to moderate retention and lacing. Standard stuff.
The aroma is grainy and sweet with a slight mineral quality as well as some phenols. There's also something odd, maybe the combination of grains and...whatever? Like that corn mush some places sell. Cornmeal?
The taste has more leaf, which is good, and the very light bitterness helps to offset the sweetness. A medicinal quality does build on the palate, though. There's a spiciness as though what little hopping there is was probably Noble, and grassiness to boot. A touch of brine sneaks in at the end.
The feel goes on the wrong end of even this style, as it starts slick and never drops that even as it gets sticky on the tongue. Carbonation can't cut all of that, but it can try.

Ursus Premium has a medium, white head, a clear, bubbly, straw appearance, and some light lacing left behind. The aroma is pungent- sweet biscuit and cracker, and the flavor is the same, with a light-to-medium, grassy hop bitterness closing out the sip. Mouthfeel is almost medium, and Ursus Premium finishes crisp, refreshing, and delicious. One of the best mass-produced lagers I’ve ever tasted.
