Good, whipped eggwhite-like head over yellow golden beer. Light sweetish maltnose and faint lactic impression, faint fruity ester as canned pineapple. Rather bitterish first impression, then sweet, bready flaovur, that would make it unfortunately alike to moulding bread if it weren’t for the rather fizzy carbonation. Light body, empty. Ending nearly tasteless. Pretty dull, unimportant but also inoffensive. Thanks to Stefaan for the Bulgar haul!

Golden colour and small head. Biscuit aroma with slight hoppiness. Some sweetness in the flavour, medium bodied. An OK lager.

Not much body, no complexity, no character. Probably better to drink the rakia if you are in Bulgaria. I liked Plovdiv though.

Bottle at home, because i opened it on the way home from work and the police drove by, so hit it in my jacket and got my jacket wet, but its better than gettin the jail! Aroma is cereal brewing grainy malts, theres some herbal bittering hop trying to save it though. Taste is balanced enough, but its not tasty in anyway.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass like applejuice. Modest hoppy aroma. Tastes like water - very washy. Modest sourish finish. Drinkable, but not really good.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2008
50 cl bottle, bought in Bulgaria by my mother. Clear golden color, disappering white head. Aroma is malt and maybe some honey. Flavor has sweetness, malt, some bitterness. Thin and boring.

0.5 l can, thanks to Doggythedog who shared it! Poured golden body with medium head that went down fast. Hoppy and malty aroma, some grass and lot of honey. Flavor is well balanced between bitter and sweet. Simple but pleasant, with grass like spices and honey malt. Unfortunately some slight metallicity ruins it. Shorter bitter, not particularly nice finish. Great comparing to the others I’ve tried that day, but actually it’s still just an average pale lager.

0.5l can courtesy of a friend who lugged it halfway through the Balkans from Bulgaria (huge thanks, Krešimir!)
Golden colour. Bout time. Medium-big white head that went away at a medium pace. Sweetish honeyish nose, a touch of hop. Pleasant, sweet honeyish malty taste. Light light hop. Whoa... having no off tastes and being drinkable just made this the highlight of the evening. Quite simple and unremarkable but drinkable and kinda likable.

12-Feb-08 (330-ml bottle, Best Before 24-Aug-06: Purchased 09-Feb-08 for $1.99 at Ledger’s Liquors in Berkeley, CA) When shopping at Ledgers, I put a few beers back on the shelf that were long past their expiration date, but I missed the dates on this one. Pouring the beer, it’s pale-golden in color and perfectly clear in appearance, so the few but steady streams of carbonation bubbles are easily visible and quite attractive as they rise through the beer. The half-inch of white head settles quickly to a thin layer, but holds there. The beer smells a bit oxidized, but not adjuncty, and the malty aroma easily comes through, offering hope that this beer will still be enjoyable after all that time on the shelf. Taking a sip, the beer is definitely malty in an almost Czech-style pilsener way, also offering a bit of that smoky character I often find in those beers. Modest hop flavor and very light bitterness give the beer a spicy flavor and some balance, and the lack of adjuncty flavor shows that this is a clear step up from low-quality pale lagers. Hints of metallic and cardboard emerge in the finish, but is more than offset by the persistent malt flavor and delicate hop spiciness. Body is light-medium and carbonation is adequate, but the beer is generally pretty refreshing on the palate and easy to drink. I really expected a throw away beer here, especially given that the beer’s ’best before" was 18 months ago, but this has actually been fairly enjoyable and finishing the entire bottle was by no means a chore. The label lists the ingredients as water, malt and hops, indicating reasonable quality, and drinking the beer backs it up. And as this beer shows, some beers do quite well after the expiration date, even if they are a fragile style.

Canned. Yellow color. Some hoppy aroma. Flavor is grainy with bitter hoppy finish. Not bad.
