stunetii (90) - Bergen, NORWAY, - AUG 14, 2011
Bottle purchased in Stara Zagora at the end of July, 2011. Pours with a light golden color, culminating in a small-sized, but a reasonably well-retained head. Lacing is pretty weak, however. The aroma mildly sweet and grainy. The mouth feel is watery. Tastes mildly sweet, but the flavor is weak overall. It’s not a bad beer, but lacks much in the way of flavor.

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

jamaty (1811) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 22, 2016
Dorada nebulosa, un dedo de espuma. Aroma cereal. En boca nada que aportar. Una más de cientos de lager de producción. En este caso ni dulce ni amarga en exceso, cierto tono metálico y especiado y gas presente. Y aguda, bastante.

nickd717 (4113) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 17, 2016
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.

Shumensko 1882 mit 4,8%. Klares goldgelb mit sehr wenig Schaum. Malzig, süßlich, leicht würzig, grasig, minimal herb.

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2015
360ml bottle. Drank straight from the bottle so can’t 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.
