2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Grainy skunky aromas come from this pale yellow crystal clear brew with big bubbles and a small white head. Tastes like club soda in a old tin can with a small amount of bitterness on the backside. It is smooth and light bodied. Its not a bad brew though i expect a light crisp taste and no tin can. Not whar this beer had to offer

2 Liter plastic green bottle with a screw cap, bought in a greek supermarket at Preveza, Greece. ABV 4.5%. No high expectations from this one, considering it cost me 2.60 euros for two liters of beer.
Poured into my lager glass, the colour is a bright yellow one, with no activity in it whatsoever. Two fingers of white, froathy head that disappeared in the time it took me to put the cap back on the bottle. No lacing on the glass.
Very bad aroma of dirty hay, plastic, dirty feet.
The same on the taste, it’s like I am drinking my socks. Again the plastic off-taste.
Thin body, low carbonation, somewhat good dry palate.
I don’t drain pour out of principle but I couldn’t drink this as it was, thankfully the time it spent in the freezer worked miracles on numbing everything out so that I was able to finish it. Really really bad.

2 l PET bottle from a supermarket in Rethymno. Pours clear golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma of grains,boiled vegetables. Taste is light sweet caramel initially, before a harsh bitterness kills the sweetness completely, thin watery mouthfeel, no aftertaste at all.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2013 2lt bottle. Pours a yellow-golden body, with an average white head that diminishes quickly, but leaves a good lace. Mostly herbalish, but skunky and metallic aroma, along with some metallic, light to medium bitter taste, didn’t expect anything better, to be honest. Average carbonation, watery texture, thin bodied, not worth it.

This is one of the better Bulgarian beers. It is not falling prey to the tendency of making less bitter beers that youngsters dig nowerdays but has the strong, herby taste of traditional bulgarian brewing tradition.

Plastic bottle drank in Sofia, procured in Gabrovo, Bulgaria. Wow, what an honor to add a brewery AND be the first to rate its beer. This little ditty pours perfectly clear, light gold with a small, foamy white cap. The nose holds a bit of doughy white bread and not much else. Light sweet flavor with mellow doughy pale malts, suggestions of bitter straw, light biscuits, light cereal. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Clean finish with a light dose of bitter straw, faint leaves, more white bread, faint biscuits. It’s certainly not an altogether terrible beer, but it could use some work.
