One of the best bulgarian beers! Known as Shumensko Premium Beer you can drink it mostly everywhere in Bulgaria.

Borresteijn (5061) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2015
50cl Can from a Bulgarian shop. ABV is 4.8%, label only mentions 1882, no Premium whatsoever. Clear golden colour, dense white head that diminishes fast. Aroma is not so nice, skunky, cheap, ugh.. Flavour is way better, soft, medium sweet, light malty, touch of honey, fruity, very light-bitter finish. Light-bodied, smooth. Went down well, but smells awful.

reggiedunlop (3336) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma is mild but has some slightly skunky grass and straw. Flavor has a bit more grass and stale hoppy spice...mild but not too bad. Mouthfeel is light / medium and the finish is dry and mildly tangy/grassy/skunky.

Can ( 0,5 l ) at Barely Legal Tasting Room . Drank from the can so no info on the view . Smell is sweet and metallic . Taste is weak, sugary , chemical ( a light bitter aspect ) , light carbonation . Below average ...

massingasetta (329) - München, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Es sieht aus wie Amerikanisches Bier, es ist grobperlig und hell. Schaumkrone sieht nicht besonders aus und auch der Geruch ist wie internationales Lager. Der Einstieg ist frisch und süffig aber insgesamt der Geschmack ist relativ schwach. Ein Bier das auch im Körper nicht überzeugt. Ja etwas Hopfen, etwas Malz und nur etwas Geschmack. Fazit: Bulgarien ist kein Bier Land von dem was ich bisher getrunken habe.

Bottle brought home by my daughter from Bansko, Bulgaria. Pous a clear golden colour with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of grassy hops, straw and hint of caramel, light body, average carbonation.

2,2 liter Pet Bottle from a cornershop in Rethymno. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of sweet grains and corn. Taste is moderate sweet carbonated water, nothing less, nothing more, did I say boring?
