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.

Borresteijn (6359) - 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.

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!

reggiedunlop (3657) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2015
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.

goozen (3810) - 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.
