Yellow with a small white head. Thin grainy aroma. Watery sweet flavour that actually leaves an impression of malt.

Bamsen78 (2888) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2013
Can. Pours clear pale golden with quickly disappearing white head. Faint aroma of yeast, malt and skunk. Hardly any taste whatsoever, save maybe for some sparse, skunky and estery notes. Very watery and unutterably boring. I am glad to make it my first Bulgarian rating, but if this is representative of beer from that country, I am afraid it will not be soon before I venture another rating from there.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 30, 2009
bottle, pours light gold, no head. Strong malt aroma with a light skunk in the background. Light bodied, very watery, some hay flavors and a buttery finish with next to no hop presence. Very bland beer.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2009
500ml bottle picked up in a supermarket in the old town of Nessebar, Bulgaria. Filmy white layer over a clear, straw coloured body. Lighter aroma of grass. Sweet grassy fruits in flavour. Very short lived bitter aftertaste. Clean tasting. Nothing special for the style, no strange taste, however (18.07.2009).
