Golden, small white head. Weak malty and graassy aroma with hints of minerals. Flat body and flavour. Watery palate with hints of malt. Watery and skunky finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught in Slynchev Bryag (Bulgaria). It was great combination between Pilsner Urquell and English pale ales. Light golden color, hoppy aroma (probably dry hopped with Hallertau). Richly spicy, bitter, slightly fruity and malty notes in the palate. Truly amazing pilsner in Bohemian style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught in Sofia) Surprising considering the poor rating across the board. Gold with tight white head, good staying power. Quite malty with honeyish sweetness but not corny. OK hop balance, but mostly up front aroma and flavor hops. Not really sure what style it is trying to be. Sorry for the apparent green bottle death everyone else has had, it isn't bad near the source.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Mild, thin, light in flavor, slight soapiness in the finish. I'd had some success with my around the world pilsners in the last couple of days but this was disappointing.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I didn't expect much from this beer and it didn't deliver much, but it did leave with the impression that this could be a good beer if fresh. Gold with a film of head with an initial burst of dank, skunked lager smell. This smell soon dissipated, mostly, and some maltiness appeared. The flavor had a fair maltiness to it for a lager, but some skunkiness as well--compliments of a green bottle and intercontinental travel. This has the potential to garner higher ratings.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
As one would expect a sparklingly clear gold, portly white head, frothy in structure, the lace adequate to coat the glass. Nose is fresh, sweetly malt, with the start somewhat sweet, lots of malt, the top skeletal in feel. Finish is moderately acidic, modestly hopped, dry aftertaste and totally forgettable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Good straw color.Nice tall creamy white head.Malty aroma very hoppy as well.The same as well for the taste with a medium hop presence,some what thin feel in the mouth.I don't sense any skunkyness to this bottle as others have.It isn't great but it isn't bad eather pretty much just a middle of the road brew
