stunetii (90) - Bergen, NORWAY, - AUG 14, 2011
Pours with a clear golden color, culminating in a medium-sized and a reasonably well-retained head. Lacing is almost non-existent, however. The aroma is a bit skunky, but mildly sweet. The mouth feel is watery, but refreshing I suppose. Tastes mildly sweet, but skunky again. It’s not a bad beer, but something I’d drink only in a pinch.

labeerinthum (511) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 25, 2016
Lattina. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il gusto al naso rimanda all’orzo. Il cappello di schiuma dalle bollicine medie ha una buona tenuta. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Le bollicine sono medie. La carbonazione è media e persistente. Il colore è giallo dorato carico. Il corpo è medio. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è pulito, dissetante e semplice. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di pane, frumento e cereali.

Gangstergafje (669) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2016
The beer is very simple. It’s just a pilsener. The color is a pale golden yellow. The beer is very clear. In top there is a small layer of rough white foam. The smell of the beer is simple. It’s just a nice pilsener. There is a nice bitter hop aroma and a malty sweetness. The taste is pretty much the same. A well balanced sweetness and bitterness. Not bad, but certainly not special.

StueyD (1566) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2016
A mid gold coloured beer with a frothy but weak white head. A light malty aroma with a hint of wheat. A mild dry mouthfeel. The taste is a mild slightly syrupy, malty flavour, some bitterness in the background. The finish is mild malt, and slightly syrupy. A can brought by a friend from Bulgaria.

One of Bulgaria’s best lagers! It must be tried fresh (in Bulgaria) without any conservants.
