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.

yngwie (13529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle. A clear, golden beer topped by a small, dense white head. The aroma is mostly fruity, all weak, with some pale malts. Grassy too. It’s quite dry on the palate, pleasantly carbonated, and with medium body fullness. Some metallic notes in the flavor, but mostly it’s fruity and grainy. A faint bitterness too. Well, nothing impressive going on here, but except for the metallic notes it’s quite flawless. 131228

darioklc (511) - Karlovac, CROATIA - NOV 10, 2013
The beer is a pale gold, typical of euro pales. Sweet character in the nose with a touch of grain. Slight metallic twang. Maybe a touch of canned corn. A bit of floral hop, but then covered up again by sweet character.

One of the few Bulgarian beers, that still hold their ground. This beer will take you not only through a mouth journey, but a journey through Bulgaria’s history and taste...

Bamsen78 (3110) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2013
Can. Pours clear pale golden with quickly disappearing white head. Faint aroma of yeast, malt and skunk. Hardly any taste whatsoever, save maybe for some sparse, skunky and estery notes. Very watery and unutterably boring. I am glad to make it my first Bulgarian rating, but if this is representative of beer from that country, I am afraid it will not be soon before I venture another rating from there.
