Can. Pours clear pale golden with quickly disappearing white head. Faint aroma of yeast, malt and skunk. Hardly any taste whatsoever, save maybe for some sparse, skunky and estery notes. Very watery and unutterably boring. I am glad to make it my first Bulgarian rating, but if this is representative of beer from that country, I am afraid it will not be soon before I venture another rating from there.

Shumensko Premium Beer, 4.6%, huge thanks to Marin for bringing it from, humm, Sofia I guess. Shared with ogivlado and heavy. Poured a golden body with a small white head that went away fast. Light grainy, interesting sweet nose, ending dry. Weak notes of corn I guess. The taste is... humm, light yeastiness and some malt (dog food, eh). And that’s it. No real bitterness. Ah well, what could one expect from a mainstream Bulgarian lager...

goozen (3555) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2015
Plastic Bottle 2ltr: Clear golden colored brew with an faintly sweet bitter taste. When open the cap an grassy flavor i smell, like most East-European Lagers. Decent thirstquencher, mine first Bulgarian tick. Bought the bottle at an Bulgarian Shop with the name Supermarkt Nansi Zuiddijk 93, Zaandam.

reggiedunlop (3536) - 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.
