3.57/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Lighter caramel color with a smaller than average, bubbly and foamy, slightly off-white head. Doesn't last too long and leaves a thin patchy lacing.

S - Tart apple along with some citrus and other juicy fruity aromas. Competing and almost equaling it is a sweet caramel malt with a touch of bready aroma. Hints of bitter, floral hops come out as well. A nice diversity of aromas.

T - Citrus, tart apple, and earthy and floral hops mix with some caramel and bready malt. These come in and out with varying strength through out the sip. Overall, I think the bitter/tart flavors are just a touch more prominent and linger just a bit longer.

M - Light body with a good amount of carbonation. Fizzy and crisp with a bit of a drying finish.

D - Pretty drinkable beer that is well balanced between bitter, tart, and sweet. Also fairly refreshing.

Notes: Best before 06/2010. A decent beer that was better than what I was expecting. Well balanced between the flavors. Not amazing by any means, but a solid/decent beer.

Wow i cant believe im drinking a beer from mongolia this is definately a first for me im very interested to see how this goes,it pours a pale amber colour with a fast vanishing one finger head which leaves a subtle ring of lacing around the edges,it has a very yeasty,honey,bitter aroma to it,it has a nice medium mouthfeel at the start and finishes quite soft and a little bitter with nice tastes of honey infused bitter hops,i must admit this is definately an interesting beer and very easy to finish im glad ive tried it.

Found, sought after really, at the Singapore Beer Festival 2008. Never had anything Mongolian, why not start with beer?!

Nice pour. Wow, clean, a bit dark golden color with a fluffy head. I expected filmy stuff, and thin. This looks good.
Aroma is a nice balance of lager yeast and bittering hops. Nothing distressing in the nose. Again surprised. Smells sharp.

Taste is crisp. Clean. Starts with a bit of light grape, almost Sauvignon Blanc like thing. Some light fruit...dried banana (very faint), pear and some aromatic yet subtle flower. A good introduction of hops to give it that crisp feel to it.
This is a very nice beer. Drank it easily and will seek out another when I get the chance.

A nice surprise.

Purchased from the Beers of Europe, a quality beer-shop based in the UK. The label says it's fermented under license from Ulan Bator Breweries Ltd., for Mongolian Barbeque Ltd. in London. On a different note, I've been to that (unauthentic) restaurant but haven't come across this beer. BB 26/11/08, served chilled in Rodenbach's slim goblet.

A: pours a clear dark amber hue, coming with very fine carbonation and an off-white frothy head settling to a thin blanket sustaining throughout the drink. Very decent for a bottled beer.
S: sweet citrus (like dried tangerine) and crystal sugar upfront are followed by a focused touch of lightly-smoked(!) fat prunes and figs... rather different for an amber lager, and quite pleasant thanks to the jammy fruity touch and not so much cloying malts.
T: the sour-sweet swallow of citrus+prune+dried-date-ish fruitiness fast give way to a decent aftertaste consisting of burned-cane-sugar-ish malts, Chinese red-bean paste, intensifying bitterness of dried-grassy hops as well as toasted malts... the bitter elements retain the intensity for a long while towards the finish that is taken up by 50% presence each of malts and bitterness, while the grainy aroma also lingers.
M&D: refreshing on the texture but slightly fizzy for my palate, this amber lager shows a considerable level of chewy bitterness thanks to the amount of hops (presumably). All in all, a very bitter lager this is. To say this is a Vienna Lager might not do justice to the brewing concept behind the beer, but really it is hard to discern the style given such high level of bitterness on top of caramely malts. A good drink all round, for sure!
