armando629 (2448) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 27, 2008
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.

ElDesmadre (2279) - Mikołw, POLAND - JUL 18, 2011
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.

heavy (2270) - Split, CROATIA - FEB 8, 2011
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 its generally sweetish, dusty, grainy, crude at moments with lot of honey malt. Still boring. Medium in body with short corky and dusty finish. Blah.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 30, 2009
bottle, pours light gold, no head. Strong malt aroma with a light skunk in the background. Light bodied, very watery, some hay flavors and a buttery finish with next to no hop presence. Very bland beer.

davidm (1979) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle at the Crimean. Really uninteresting. Band-aid, citrus, sweetness, light, and ugly.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2008
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.
