Leighton (18229) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2011
Bottle in Bulgaria. Pours light gold, very little head. Faint malt aroma, some grain. Very light flavor, with some weak cereal and corn, and very little bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly sweet on the finish. Nothing special. Easy drinking.

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.

armando629 (2456) - 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.

rlgk (18117) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2007
Not sure if this is the right beer. My bottle (360 ml) said ABV 4.6 and my searches told me this was really a pilsener. But anyway: Pale golden color, small white head. Butterscotch aroma, fruity notes and toffee. Bready flavor, malty and with some hops.

crossovert (11204) - Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Branded as Shumnsko Beer in the US. 360ml embossed bottle. It pours a clear gold with a foamy white head. The smell is sweeter and breadier than usual, slight grassy hops. Flavor is typical EPL. I guess it has a bit more character than most. It has a mild soapiness, some mild bitterness, herbalness, a nice sweetness, and some fruity notes. Reminiscent of a czech pils melded with a polish lager.

Can as Shumensko Premium from my colleague. Country #90
Golden color with thick white head. Strong malty aroma. Malty taste with almost no bitterness. Forgettable beer.

darioklc (691) - Karlovac, CROATIA - NOV 10, 2013
The beer is a pale gold, typical of euro pales. Sweet character in the nose with a touch of grain. Slight metallic twang. Maybe a touch of canned corn. A bit of floral hop, but then covered up again by sweet character.
