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.

sinte (349) - 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.

ElDesmadre (1629) - 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.

massingasetta (261) - München, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Es sieht aus wie Amerikanisches Bier, es ist grobperlig und hell. Schaumkrone sieht nicht besonders aus und auch der Geruch ist wie internationales Lager. Der Einstieg ist frisch und süffig aber insgesamt der Geschmack ist relativ schwach. Ein Bier das auch im Körper nicht überzeugt. Ja etwas Hopfen, etwas Malz und nur etwas Geschmack. Fazit: Bulgarien ist kein Bier Land von dem was ich bisher getrunken habe.

Bottle @ ChristianScheffel tasting. [thank you, BeerBiker]
Pours pale golden with a little white head. Hay-like sweet aroma with a citric bitter hoppy edge. Thin mouthfeel. Flavour is limited, lightly sour citric bitter. Not fantastic, but there is a certain elegance to it.

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

Clear golden appearance, medium head. Malty and grassy aroma, typical lager style, not outstanding.
