Clear golden color, medium foamy head. Interesting aroma of hops and herbs. Balanced very well with ideal interplay of fruits, malts and spicy/piney hops.

Nice flavour for a canned lager. Watery texture, though. Not entirely without merit.

500 ml can from bulgarianfood.co.uk. The fact this is brewed by Carlsberg Bulgaria hightened my expectations to the point that I almost lost control of my bowel movements. This is a blonde lager ŕ la Carlsberg. Oh yes, it has that musty, sickly sweet, rancid honey malt aroma, like a bee keeper’s armpits on a hot day. Rough, bubbly feel. The taste at least has some metal to avoid being just another sweet malty thing. Its bitter saltiness grew on me. Gassy. Very gassy. Ok but definitely not very spetsialno.

darioklc (506) - 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.

Bottle: watery, blend, some weak fruity sweetness, weak metalic bitterness, not much more.

sinte (315) - Udine, ITALY - JAN 26, 2011
Bottle 1L. Dark yellow body, with a small white head, fully diminishing with virtually no lacing. Heavy fruity aroma (grapes, wine). Heavy sweet flavour with, maybe, some faint bitter note after a while. Light body with a watery texture; light carbonation.

fobar (241) - Sřgne, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2011
500ml can. Pale golden body with a partly lasting white head. Aroma of hay, citrus and hints of perfume... Taste of malty hey. Medium bitter aftertaste. Far from bad but not even close to be remembered.

evilempire (132) - sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2008
fairly average, bland, golden lager. slightly more hop than usual for the area, but basically playing it safe and ending up with a drink that is ultimately dull

Slightly skunky aroma. Overall watery taste with a hint of hops. Not horrible tasting, but not much going on here.
