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.

Bamsen78 (5034) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2013
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.

Bottle thanks to Dohny. Aroma light malty honeyish, very light hoppy. Clear golden colour. Taste is highly astringent, metallic, bad.

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...

Bottle: Poured a pale to golden color with a huge white head. Aroma is a sour corn. Taste is bitter corn and some metal.

luttonm (4633) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2012
0.5l bottle brought from Sofia. Standard yellow lager with white-ish head. grass-corn metallic aroma, corny mild body. slight sour, bit more full body than most. not terrible

nickd717 (4165) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Draft. Clear golden yellow color with a 2cm white head. Aroma is typical pilsner malt, grains, with a touch of grassy hops. The flavor is also more interesting than most pale lagers, but still a pale lager, which is a flat-out boring style. Slightly sweet malt base with a touch of hops at the end. Light, crisp, carbonated, and drinkable.
