seymour (1391) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - APR 9, 2013
Poured a tall green bottle from Global Foods into a Willybecher glass. It poured a brilliant orangish-gold colour with thick, everlasting white foam and lace. Very nice appearance. Higher quality and quantity of hops than typical pale lagers in the aroma and flavor departments. Very tasty, grainy pilsener malt-sweetness, faintly pepper and chalky. Light body, very spritzy carbonation, crisp mouthfeel. Pleasant tart aftertaste which eventually finished dry. Surprisingly well-balanced and enjoyable beer. I see many others have rated this beer extremely poorly; maybe thatís just the pessimistic Euro-lager bias, maybe mine was especially fresh and well-kept in the export process... I donít know, but Iím not ashamed to report this is good beer.

foxo82 (673) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2013
500 ml can from bulgarianfood.co.uk. Dark blonde headless lager with a skunky aroma. Very rough, gassy and not easy to drink. Some bitterness, some sweetness, some bodily fluid. Lifeless.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 5, 2013
POurs brassy gold with a tall, white head. Scent is barley malt. Taste is mildly bitter, watery grass.....a bit of cardboard. Astonishingly, not skunked at all, despite origin, age and green bottle. Much better than anticipated.

Sluskin (12) - Skokie, Alabama, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Pours a light gold with a head that does not last. Very thin body with low carbonation. Reminds me of what Heineken should taste like if it is not skunked. A little bit of malt that fades in the mid palate and finishes tasting like close to nothing.

Wanja (603) - GERMANY - FEB 2, 2013
On tap, Sofia... Bad head. Strong Plisener flavor, nice hop and wheat aroma.

musinj6 (383) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Pours a 3 finger head that quickly dissipates leaving no lacing with clear gold coloring. Malty toasted malt with a hint of metallic taste that is not nearly so strong as many green bottle european beers. Mildly sweet up front then turns bitter. Hint of grassy hops. Thin to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Short bitter finish. This is not bad for what it is.

marcus (6320) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours clear blonde with a huge white head and a standard lager aroma. There is a slightly sweet pale malt flavor with a thick dry finish. Very thin.

Rather poor lager, known to cause headache in the morning. I tried it a few times; I donít think i was ever able to finish a whole glass.

Benzai (7225) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2012
50cl can shared with Dutchdrebus and Joes. Clear golden color, small white head that disappears almost instantly. Smell and taste malts and lightly sweetish. Low to medium carbonation, low body.
