Bottle. Golden color with a white head. Skunk musty aroma. Crisp and smooth but a bad aftertaste.

Nuffield (3691) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2002
Pale yellow, skunky, dusty. Quickly dissipating head, overcarbonated body. What’s to like?

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2002
One of the most surprisingly beers I’ve recently have had -- who’d think Bulgaria had good beer? Nice clean lager appearance, complete with a staying head. Sweet inviting nose is followed by a pretty good dry malty quaff, with a neat little bitter finish. Pretty good.

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - OCT 18, 2002
very bland lager. lots of adjuncts overpower the malt element. greenbottle and poor distribution out of bulgaria makes this very suspectible to skunking. not worth trying exceot for the novelty value or to add bukgaria to your country list

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2002
A typical, very fizzy, american stardard-style beer that’s absolutely not worth trying at all. Avoid. (mine was not skunked).

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2002
Skunk, skunk, skunk. Smells badly of the green bottle curse. Not such a bad flavor really, but I had to smell it to get it into my mouth, wich was painful. Not really worth drinking under any circumstances (unless it says Bud).

pilsnerrogge (2511) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2002
Not much head. Thin and tinny flavour but the bitter finish is quite o.k.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2002
Light golden color, small to medium head. Slight hop aroma, malt overpowers. Dry finish. Not a very good beer in my opinion, I tried it because I wondered what a beer from Bulgaria might taste like.

joet (2188) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - MAY 17, 2002
Light medium body, little to no nose. Not much beer here. Some residual murkiness in the feel.

Ernest (6260) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2002
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, moderate density of tiny and small particles. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a solvent/chemical note. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately bitter, lightly acidic, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent. Quite similar to the Karlovacko I just tried: husky, solventy, very little malt character, unclean. But the nice lacing and lasting head along with a reasonably substantial body are partially redeeming.
