Can via my parents on a trip. Pours straw gold with decent white head. Nose is sweet malt with those adjunct fillers. Flavor is much the same, rather sweet with a some notes of corn. Little to no hop bitterness. Light body with sweet watery finish.

Can. A light golden beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with skunky notes of brewing cereal. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and straw as well as some skunky notes of brewing cereal. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Rune (9308) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2009
500ml bottle picked up in a supermarket in the old town of Nessebar, Bulgaria. Filmy white layer over a clear, straw coloured body. Lighter aroma of grass. Sweet grassy fruits in flavour. Very short lived bitter aftertaste. Clean tasting. Nothing special for the style, no strange taste, however (18.07.2009).

bottle, pours light gold, no head. Strong malt aroma with a light skunk in the background. Light bodied, very watery, some hay flavors and a buttery finish with next to no hop presence. Very bland beer.

My can actually brewed @ http://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/brewer name/2151/ Medium white head, fast gone over pale metallic golden beer. Grassy, grainy nose, vegetable, faintly rotting as well. Sweet, bit corn-like malts taste. Adjuncts quite possible, white sugar. Again +/- grassy. Slightly spritzy (compared to the Zagorka...), Very light body. Very late in the after’taste’, harsh metallic component. Bo-o-oring. Thanks to Stefaan for bringing them over!

(Can 50 cl) Courtesy of Andras Acs. Clear pale golden with a dense white head leaving some laces. Aroma of malt and brewing cereal. Medium body, a little low in carbonation. Flavour is primarily cheap brewing cereal. The finish is dry with a little sulphur. Drinkable though. 180808

A bit better than the svetlo, but an avarage lager too. Aroma of yeast and malt, minimal hop, flavor of pale and some caramel malt, bottom fermentation, minimal bitterness. Easy drinkable beer to the beach of the Black-sea.
