sebletitje (7879) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2013
50cl can, BB 16/02/2014. Can mentions brewed by carlsberg Serbia for Bulgarian import. Dorée, col blanc moyen. Arôme reste centré sur les malts, le tout étant assez faible, houblon fleuri et herbacé pour une effluve amer très discrète. Palais de malt pils cara moyen, note de houblons procurant qcq pointes de citronné. Le tout garde une certaine douceur en fin de bouche. Reste très typique pour ce style de bière, fini amer voire métallique avec une pointe houblon épicé. Sans plus.

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?

Can as Shumensko Premium from my colleague. Country #90
Golden color with thick white head. Strong malty aroma. Malty taste with almost no bitterness. Forgettable beer.

Sigmund (5795) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2010
500 ml brown glass bottle with tear-off cap, as Shumensko Premium Beer. ABV is 4.6%. A gift, BB date seems to be 13.12.08. Extremely pale yellow colour, huge white head. Sweetish aroma with strong "chemical" notes, vile stuff. Soft mouthfeel. Bland and boring flavour with just a hint of sweetness and minimal hops, but not totally undrinkable.

Borresteijn (5457) - Zaandam, 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.

SilkTork (5412) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2008
33oml bottle from my local East European shop. A shimmering pale gold beer. Soft, watery, bland malt of minimal character - some mineral quality perhaps. Noticable hop bite and finish, typical of East European lagers - though the malt is a little blander than normal.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Bottle, from Romanian-Bulgarian grocer in Paphos. Ugly gold with barely any head. Mild corny aroma. Cornflake sugars cloy on the tongue. Sweet-sour. Mildly unpleasant.
