Bottle at the Crimean. Really uninteresting. Band-aid, citrus, sweetness, light, and ugly.

Clear golden yellow with White foam head. Aroma is slightly bittersweet. Taste is fresh, smooth pilsener, nice actuatly. Aftertaste is short, bit bitter. (Burgas 201303)

BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2007
Bottle from Christian Nielsen, the Vampyre. [Odense Tasting.]
Well, here is some of the fluid which runs into the black sea, but maybe not this summer, when the degrees hit around 45 C. Good in the heat!

ElDesmadre (1359) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 18, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2013 Draught. Straw yellow with a frothy, quite durable head. Faint malty-hoppy aroma, watery malty taste that is very low on bitterness. Nevertheless it is quite drinkable, especially when fresh on tap.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2002
Dark amber clear with a small short lasting head. Faint caramel and roasted malt, and even fainter coffee and hops aromas. Medium thin body. Light roasted malts and stronger bitter all the way through to the finish and aftertaste.

estpiwo (1222) - ESTONIA - NOV 9, 2009
Bottle. Golden color, nice head. Malty aroma. Flavor is malty, some hoppy tones. Better than svetlo?

kseecs16 (1182) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2007
Sweet mother of mercy, this was awful - maybe it lost something in the trip over but I doubt it could lose that much. The bottle procured from the local ethnic grocer poured out a predictable pale yellow with no head. There would be no lacing here. Smelled a little metallicy, vaguely hoppy in a miller lite kind of hops way. Flavor was just plain bad, mettalic a little sweetness but the malt and hops seemed absent must be largely adjunct in this bad boy. Carbonated dishwater best explains the feel of this one in the mouth.

kyzr (1143) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - SEP 29, 2009
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.

Swaroga (1108) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 7, 2013
50cl can. Golden with small head. Nose : bread , sugar. Sip : low carbonation, water body. Metallic background. Bread. Awful beer.

Quinten (1037) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2010
At an bulgarian shop in Zaandam, plastic bottle 2000ml ! Golden, thin head, some strange notes, like spices, nice grainy bottom and bits like an bohemian, but the strange notes make me wondering.
