Bottle at the Crimean. Really uninteresting. Band-aid, citrus, sweetness, light, and ugly.

500 ml can from bulgarianfood.co.uk. The fact this is brewed by Carlsberg Bulgaria hightened my expectations to the point that I almost lost control of my bowel movements. This is a blonde lager ŕ la Carlsberg. Oh yes, it has that musty, sickly sweet, rancid honey malt aroma, like a bee keeper’s armpits on a hot day. Rough, bubbly feel. The taste at least has some metal to avoid being just another sweet malty thing. Its bitter saltiness grew on me. Gassy. Very gassy. Ok but definitely not very spetsialno.

vipinvelp (2247) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2013
Clear golden yellow with White foam head. Aroma is slightly bittersweet. Taste is fresh, smooth pilsener, nice actuatly. Aftertaste is short, bit bitter. (Burgas 201303)

luttonm (2272) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUN 2, 2012

crossovert (7566) - Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Branded as Shumnsko Beer in the US. 360ml embossed bottle. It pours a clear gold with a foamy white head. The smell is sweeter and breadier than usual, slight grassy hops. Flavor is typical EPL. I guess it has a bit more character than most. It has a mild soapiness, some mild bitterness, herbalness, a nice sweetness, and some fruity notes. Reminiscent of a czech pils melded with a polish lager.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks eyes_wide_shut. As Shumensko Premium Beer. Clear golden. Grainy aroma with a bit of paper and faint hoppy hints. Sweetish grainy flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Light-bodied.
