2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fluorescent yellow. Small bubbles. Slightly herbal hop aroma, a bit doughy. Herbal hop with a light bite. Like a proper pils, with light sweetness at the end alongside moderate bitterness. Became a go-to beer on Cyprus.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Aroma of malt, dough and some hops, it partly reminded me of a kvass. Taste is pretty much watery and low on bitterness but as it is doughy, it at least stands out among other Bulgarian pale lagers.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2011 Tall can acquired in Paphos Romanian/Bulgarian market. Sickly yellow swill color with slimy small head. Served icy cold, smells alright. Just smelling clean cereal grains and some tin can. Thin and fizzy. Flavors are not bad. Finishes nicely dry with a decent bit of hop bitterness. Don’t let it warm up too much and it’s a drinkable pale lager.

Can. Clear golden with a medium white head. Grainy aroma with some cooked corn and some metallic hints. Flavor has some sweetish, slightly bready, grainy malt and finishes with a bit of bitterness. Watery. Not good at all.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500 ml bottle, a gift, BB date 25.08.08. Pale golden colour, moderate but lasting white head. Moderate carbonation in the glass. The aroma has first a whiff of grassy hops, then notes of cooked vegetables and undefined chemicals. Soft mouthfeel. The flavour has some hops and is first fairly refreshing, then the "chemical" notes from the aroma disturbs the tasting process too much.
