A: Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that disappears quickly
S: Slight grainy smell with a touch of apple scent
T:grainy. not much else there. Not very much hops flavor. Sort of weak.
M: Light bodied and refreshing. No sting from the carbonation.
O: A drinkable beer. It is what it is, a euro-lager. Not great but then again not bad. I could drink this on a hot summer day after working in the yard.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, consistently leaving a thin head covering the surface and a coating of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of apples and bits of sweet malts are present in the smell.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some hints of corn and bits of sweetness. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, smooth and rather clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite drinkable but is lacking when it comes to the aroma and flavor department.

Poured chilled in straight-edged ale glass.

A: thin head, pear-juice colored; not much lacing; good carbonation
S: thin-smelling ; a bit of pear, but leaves quickly
T: thin, bland lager; not foul but nondescript; pear, sweet

It's ok. A little bit better than average for a east European lager.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a 16.9 oz brown bottle into a snifter.

A: slightly hazy, golden with an unusual tan tint; modest and short-lived, sudsy white head.

Aroma: light malt and hops with a slight skunkiness and a hint of honey.

T: slightly sweet and floral, with a low level of hops compared to the malt. However, the malt dominates at the start, but the hops come out on top in the finish.

M: rather light and slightly watery body; carbonation is medium (very good); smooth; semi-dry.

Overall: this beer is quite drinkable; I found this to be much better than Baltica's #2 lager.

The Best by date is 10-15-10 and today's date is 4-30-12. I hope I don't get sick lol... My review may be a little off.

Appearance - Pours a dark golden color with an inch thick, fluffy white head. Leaves a thin oily film on top of the beer and has nice lacing.

Smell - The smell is pretty feint.. all I detect is a subtle sweetness and a feint aroma of honey.

Taste - Strong flavor of honey and corn/grains, very sweet. Has a feint peppery flavor as well, with slight bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body with mild carbonation.

Overall - Well.. this is long expired but it doesn't taste like it is. This is actually a pretty good beer.
