sinte (329) - Udine, ITALY - JAN 26, 2011
Bottle 1L. Dark yellow body, with a small white head, fully diminishing with virtually no lacing. Heavy fruity aroma (grapes, wine). Heavy sweet flavour with, maybe, some faint bitter note after a while. Light body with a watery texture; light carbonation.

ElDesmadre (1524) - Mikołów, 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.

Bottle @ ChristianScheffel tasting. [thank you, BeerBiker]
Pours pale golden with a little white head. Hay-like sweet aroma with a citric bitter hoppy edge. Thin mouthfeel. Flavour is limited, lightly sour citric bitter. Not fantastic, but there is a certain elegance to it.

Quinten (1040) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2010
At an bulgarian shop in Zaandam, plastic bottle 2000ml ! Golden, thin head, some strange notes, like spices, nice grainy bottom and bits like an bohemian, but the strange notes make me wondering.

heavy (2133) - 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 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.
