Bottle in Bulgaria. Pours light gold, very little head. Faint malt aroma, some grain. Very light flavor, with some weak cereal and corn, and very little bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly sweet on the finish. Nothing special. Easy drinking.

Not sure if this is the right beer. My bottle (360 ml) said ABV 4.6 and my searches told me this was really a pilsener. But anyway: Pale golden color, small white head. Butterscotch aroma, fruity notes and toffee. Bready flavor, malty and with some hops.
