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...

Bamsen78 (3759) - 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.

NIce and refreshing golden one. NICe foam and some fine aroma. Nasty bottle if you consider the plastic appareance.

reggiedunlop (3381) - 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.
