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?

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
