Can, thanks SirLimpsalot.
Golden with a small white head. I guess that you get what you pay for. This was a typical boring Pale Lager. Boiled vegetables, grain, metal and something sweet like honey. Weak mouthfeel.

Nice straw/gold color; Light body; Aroma and flavor of slight sweet malt, light hops, and cereal/grain; Pretty bland and quite watery; Average lager at best.

Very hazy gold with a short white head.
Scent is sour grainy malt.
Taste is , incredibly, more cornflake water than many NAís......
Itís an oily, bitter, flat mess of a beer.
It just simply tastes.....bad.

@ Sozopol: ganska tunn vätska med tydlig metallisk smak. Inte mycket humle eller malt men den fyller sin funktion som torstsläckare vid poolen.

You drink it because youíve gone to Bulgaria on holiday, and itís whats available. Pale gold, white head some corn in the flavour. Not truly awful, but not great either.

Bottles and tap in Sofia. Pale golden with a white head. Back in 2003 when I visited Bulgaria I found this beer to be better than the pale lagers of Norway at the time. Quite drinkable, not the most flavourless lager Iíve tried. Some bitterness and actually quite resfreshing on a hot summer day in Sofia. [Backlog from the end of June 2003]

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from European Delicatessen, Erdington, Birmingham. Pale yellow, no head. Smells like a Hungarian lager. Bad beer. Hardly any flavour, aside from a thin, tinny corn, with some frosties. Also too fizzy. Not enough enjoyable in an ironic way.

International Green Week, Berlin 2012: our second day and we find ourselves in hall 17 where food and drink from Italy, Switzerland and The Czech Republic were on offer (as well as a few other countries) I notice a spare table and a couple of barstools, so plop the wife down and peruse the taps around me: I get the wife a Budweiser Budvar and myself a lovely looking ĎSchwarz aus Bohmení beer. While Iím enjoying my beer I notice a guy over the way in Bulgarian national dress (or something like that) who was cooking some stew type stuff: next to him were cans of beer, so after my Czech beer I wander over and return to our table with a 500ml can of this Pilsner.
Poured it into my vase shaped glass and the review started: Yellow body, bright, clean and clear, could have been any one of 1,000 Pilsners/Lagers/Helle, thin white head on top (of course).
Gets my regular score of 3 for a non-smelling Pilsner, couldnít pick up anything worthy of note in the nose.
Generic Pilsner feel to this: grains, mild citrus hop content and enough malts to prevent too much bitterness from the hops, refreshing and thirst quenching. Not the best, but Iíve had a lot worse in my travels. One of the better offering Iíve had from Bulgaria.
