2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
21/01 0.5 l bottle courtesy of Marko, thanks for sharing! As Shumensko premium, but it had also 4,6% ABV. It poured golden body with small head. Corn, cornflakes and honey malt cloying aroma. A bit better flavor, had some notes of herbal hops, but it’s generally sweetish, dusty, grainy, crude at moments with lot of honey malt. Still boring. Medium in body with short corky and dusty finish. Blah.

Clear goldblond coloured beer with small white head and lots of carbonation. Herby hoppy aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is herby ending dry and bit bitter.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
360 ml bottle, bought in Bulgaria by my mother. Golden color, ok lasting white head. Grainy aroma. Flavor is malt, hints of fruit and some bitterness. Thin stuff, as expected.

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

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle at the Crimean. Really uninteresting. Band-aid, citrus, sweetness, light, and ugly.

Bottle from Christian Nielsen, the Vampyre. [Odense Tasting.]
Well, here is some of the fluid which runs into the black sea, but maybe not this summer, when the degrees hit around 45 C. Good in the heat!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark amber clear with a small short lasting head. Faint caramel and roasted malt, and even fainter coffee and hops aromas. Medium thin body. Light roasted malts and stronger bitter all the way through to the finish and aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2013 Draught. Straw yellow with a frothy, quite durable head. Faint malty-hoppy aroma, watery malty taste that is very low on bitterness. Nevertheless it is quite drinkable, especially when fresh on tap.
