From Lidl. In shaker glass. At Roquetas de Mar, after dinner. Decent euro lager. Nothing out of place and a good adjusted carbonation that gives it a good feel. Even seems a bit more malty than usual. Doesnt require glacial temperature.

Never tried a Romanian beer before.

Looks and tastes fairly standard, average euro lager, nothing special, could session on it though.

The bottle and label are pretty cool.

Poured from a brown 13.5 oz. bottle. My first 13.5 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, honey. Taste is malts, green apples, a bit of grains. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall, it's refreshing, drinkable, but nothing worth seeking out.

Clear gold with almost two fingers of five minute head. Some lace.
Smell is malt sweetness some grain bin.
Taste is crisp bitter then swerves into malt sweetness. Noble hops.
Mouthfeel is close to medium with good carbonation. Finish lightly dry and mildly bitter.
Overall an alright euro lager. Mine was past the best by date about four months. I assume it would have tasted better when fresh.

From a dark glass pint bottle. Bottle notes that it's owned by SAB Miller, so my expectations are low. But I'm intrigued because I've never had anything from Romania. So here goes. Pours a straw color with a finger of white fluffy head that dissipates quickly. Faint grain smell, not bad but a little weak. Light mouthfeel, mostly malt flavor with a touch of bitterness. Considering that I am neither a fan of SAB Miller or lagers, this is not bad at all. Very drinkable lager. No skunkiness (dark glass bottle probably helps) or weird adjuncts.

Not as bad as I was prepared for, actually a very drinkable lager. Beautiful fluffy head, skimpy lacing and clear golden body with lots of fine carbonation. Faint grain/malt aroma, but flavor is fuller with nice malt body and a hint of hops. Very refreshing.

Powerful white foam. Clearly smell yeasty and slightly sour. As for the taste of it: just Lager, minimal bitterness. Very light and refreshing, perfect for summer.

I am drinking the "original" premium pils, which the site says is "retired." Others appear to be reviewing this beer here so here ya go... At first I thought I had bought an old skunked bottle, but the drink by date is still months away. Unpleasant smell, flat feel, stale unexciting taste. Not a huge fan of pilsners, but this is not a good example. It is billed as Romania's "first" beer...perhaps they should stick with gymnastics.

Pours a typical pale lager appearance with thin head but good lacing. Visible carbonation is high.

Smell is very grainy with a hint of lemon and a certain cheap lager smell.

Taste is crisp, clean and refreshing. Rather mild, but it does have some husky, grainy lager bite and a touch of apple skin flavour and even a noticeable yeast flavour.

Overall, a decent euro pale lager that I could happily drink all night if that was what was on offer. A mild but distinctive flvour makes it presence known and it is, whilst not exquisite, not at all unwelcome.
