This beer is found mainly in the northwest part of Bulgaria.

Poured from the 500mL green glass bottle into a tall pilsener glass.

A: The beer is a pale golden color with a a surprisingly nice pure white head with ok retention.

S: Pretty typical pils smell: grainy, somewhat sour and/or skunky. Grass. Hint of floral.

T: I don't really dig this one that much. Pils taste, but more skunky than usual. Chemically aftertaste. Outside of that, grass and grain.

There are better BG beers.

Brought back to the UK by my Bulgarian friend, Lily, from her home town Lom which hosts the brewery Lomsko. Brought back to the UK by my Bulgarian colleague, Lily, from her home town Lom that hosts the brewery "Lomsko". Coming in a 1L brown plastic bottle, BB 31/12/08, served lightly chilled in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: golden hue, white puffy head settles fast to a thin blanket, on top of constant streams of fine carbonation. Looking quite okay!
S: sweet grainy malts with a corn-ish+honey-ish aroma comes with an abundant input of floral German hops, a little lemony acidity, and an intriguing buttery touch almost like toffee. The aroma comes a bit like a hoppy Blond Bitter actually.
T: as soon as the initially spritzy bite of carbonation settles, a soothing flow of floral German hops expands with a fine bitter edge, which keeps the malty theme in check that is also clean, slightly grainy and, again, corn-ish throughout. A very positive point about this light-flavoured and straight forward lager lies in the clean palate free from adjuncts' messy taste as well as from a cloying finish.
M&D: slightly too sharp in terms of the fizzy bite (esp. in the beginning), but the palate remains clean and the underlying bitter palate helps keep a decent level of drinkability. The overall performance reminds me of a German pilsner for the hop-malt balance, hence the categorisation here. Here's my whole-hearted THANKS to my friend Lily!
