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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A bit better than the svetlo, but an avarage lager too. Aroma of yeast and malt, minimal hop, flavor of pale and some caramel malt, bottom fermentation, minimal bitterness. Easy drinkable beer to the beach of the Black-sea.

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.
