stunetii (90) - Bergen, NORWAY, - AUG 14, 2011
Bottle purchased in Stara Zagora at the end of July, 2011. Pours with a light golden color, culminating in a small-sized, but a reasonably well-retained head. Lacing is pretty weak, however. The aroma mildly sweet and grainy. The mouth feel is watery. Tastes mildly sweet, but the flavor is weak overall. It’s not a bad beer, but lacks much in the way of flavor.

Rhombic (30) - SPAIN - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle. Kind of better than Zagora, but still has the certain Bulgarian beer style with that slightly unpleasant smell and a taste that lacks complexity. Decent, though.

Simpele plain pilsener. Not my kind of beer, but had worden die sure, also from my own country.

goozen (3417) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2015
Plastic Bottle 2ltr: Clear golden colored brew with an faintly sweet bitter taste. When open the cap an grassy flavor i smell, like most East-European Lagers. Decent thirstquencher, mine first Bulgarian tick. Bought the bottle at an Bulgarian Shop with the name Supermarkt Nansi Zuiddijk 93, Zaandam.

Sparf (178) - Östersund, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2015
Extremt svag doft med inslag av söt majs och hö. Mycket ljus brygd och ett kort skum. Smaken är totalt karaktärslös men inte helt blaskig. Finns en aning fyllighet och beska men kan bara duga som en törstsläckarreserv om inget bättre står till buds — inget intressant men heller inga fel. Typisk öststatsöl från närmsta matbutik.

Borresteijn (5471) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2015
50cl Can from a Bulgarian shop. ABV is 4.8%, label only mentions 1882, no Premium whatsoever. Clear golden colour, dense white head that diminishes fast. Aroma is not so nice, skunky, cheap, ugh.. Flavour is way better, soft, medium sweet, light malty, touch of honey, fruity, very light-bitter finish. Light-bodied, smooth. Went down well, but smells awful.

Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma is mild but has some slightly skunky grass and straw. Flavor has a bit more grass and stale hoppy spice...mild but not too bad. Mouthfeel is light / medium and the finish is dry and mildly tangy/grassy/skunky.
