Bottle @ ChristianScheffel tasting. [thank you, BeerBiker]
Pours pale golden with a little white head. Hay-like sweet aroma with a citric bitter hoppy edge. Thin mouthfeel. Flavour is limited, lightly sour citric bitter. Not fantastic, but there is a certain elegance to it.

DSG (11246) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 20, 2012
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.

crossovert (10891) - 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.

Rune (10836) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2009
500ml bottle picked up in a supermarket in the old town of Nessebar, Bulgaria. Filmy white layer over a clear, straw coloured body. Lighter aroma of grass. Sweet grassy fruits in flavour. Very short lived bitter aftertaste. Clean tasting. Nothing special for the style, no strange taste, however (18.07.2009).

Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, metal, corn and floral. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with a metallic finish. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

shrubber85 (10224) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Bottle. Corn and barley malt aroma. Medium yellow with moderate head. Slightly sweet-sour barley malt flavor with a hint of hops. Not horrible, not great.

My can actually brewed @ http://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/brewer name/2151/ Medium white head, fast gone over pale metallic golden beer. Grassy, grainy nose, vegetable, faintly rotting as well. Sweet, bit corn-like malts taste. Adjuncts quite possible, white sugar. Again +/- grassy. Slightly spritzy (compared to the Zagorka...), Very light body. Very late in the after’taste’, harsh metallic component. Bo-o-oring. Thanks to Stefaan for bringing them over!
