I had some decently-high hopes for this one. I figured, it's from Bulgaria, that's close to Czechoslovakia, right? Not many miles, but light years of quality, apparently. Clear light gold. Nose is skunky, sour, and generally unappealing. Flavor is thin, no real hops, a few mild, sweet malts. Some rather nasty chemical and medicinal tones. My taste buds have been Balkanized. Bleah.

Perfectly pale and clear, in the best bland lager tradition. Big, frothy head. Aroma:piney...lemony...um,...stinky...pissy, if you'll pardon my Bulgarian. No flavor to speak of, nothing at all to recommend it. Did I spend money on this? Must be the Miller High Life of Bulgaria.

Pours a bright yellow. Aroma is skunk. Flavor is straw and corn. Not much here but I am sure this would be better at the country it was made in.

Bottle. Oh the skunky smell when thedm opened this one!! Yuck! It poured a small sized frothy white head with fine-small sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The body was carbonated and transparent with a gold hue. The nose, as previously mentioned upon opening, was skunky, malty and grassy. The flavor was somewhat sweet, acidic, malty and it had an unpleasant lingering aftertaste that caused me to get some chips to get rid of the aftertaste. The mouthfeel was fairly smooth and the lacing of this beer was fair. Definitely not recommended.

This bottled brew poured a large head of foamy white colored finely sized long lasting bubbles that left behind afair lacing. The body was a transparent carbonated straw yellow light orange colored one. As soon as the bottle was uncapped, we could smell the skunkyness of the aroma that containes a mild malt and hop scent beyond the skunks! The mouth feel is tingly with mild acidic and mettallic notes. The flavor is malty with mild hops and grass.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Terrible. Grassy astringent herbal aroma, with a taste that is soapy. Everything about this beer says old and skunky.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
As my friend said, "smells like old lady perfume." Pours a light golded yellow with no head. Aroma was skunky. Thin mouthfeel. Grassy malts and mild hops on the tongue. Rather boring.

No real good reason to really drink this lager. Grassy bitter flavor and finish.

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.
