Half-litre can from a Bulgarian grocer in Brussels. Big soapy head that vanishes almost instantly. Pale gold colour. Sour corny aroma. Taste is a little metallic.

Tap at the holiday poolbar. Looks good. Beer starts mild, notes of lemon, a bit metallically. Mild hoppy-bitter background. Easy to drink. Better than exspected.

labeerinthum (566) - Milano, ITALY - MAY 8, 2016
Lattina Shumensko 1882 ABV 4,8%. Lintensit olfattiva normale e la persistenza olfattiva corta. Il gusto al naso rimanda a percezioni di orzo. Il cappello di schiuma ha una scarsa tenuta, con la grandezza delle bollicine che grossolana, a carbonazione media. La consistenza del liquido limpida. Le bollicine sono poche e fini. La carbonazione morbida. Il colore giallo paglierino. Il corpo snello. Lamaro leggero. Lintensit gustativa leggera e la persistenza gustativa corta. Il gusto piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale dissetante e semplice. Il retrogusto veloce. Al palato arrivano sentori di pane e cereali.

jamaty (1915) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 22, 2016
Dorada nebulosa, un dedo de espuma. Aroma cereal. En boca nada que aportar. Una ms de cientos de lager de produccin. En este caso ni dulce ni amarga en exceso, cierto tono metlico y especiado y gas presente. Y aguda, bastante.

Draft. Clear golden yellow color with a 2cm white head. Aroma is typical pilsner malt, grains, with a touch of grassy hops. The flavor is also more interesting than most pale lagers, but still a pale lager, which is a flat-out boring style. Slightly sweet malt base with a touch of hops at the end. Light, crisp, carbonated, and drinkable.

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2015
360ml bottle. Drank straight from the bottle so cant comment on appearance. Aroma is grass and a little sweet malt. Actually decent taste. Or not terrible at least. Quite heavily carbonated. Not sweet and refreshing enough.

Ordinary lager. Mild bitterness at the end. No distinguishing aroma. Appealing color.
