massingasetta (457) - München, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Es sieht aus wie Amerikanisches Bier, es ist grobperlig und hell. Schaumkrone sieht nicht besonders aus und auch der Geruch ist wie internationales Lager. Der Einstieg ist frisch und süffig aber insgesamt der Geschmack ist relativ schwach. Ein Bier das auch im Körper nicht überzeugt. Ja etwas Hopfen, etwas Malz und nur etwas Geschmack. Fazit: Bulgarien ist kein Bier Land von dem was ich bisher getrunken habe.

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 (1052) - 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 (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 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.

Nice flavour for a canned lager. Watery texture, though. Not entirely without merit.

Bottle. A clear, golden beer topped by a small, dense white head. The aroma is mostly fruity, all weak, with some pale malts. Grassy too. It’s quite dry on the palate, pleasantly carbonated, and with medium body fullness. Some metallic notes in the flavor, but mostly it’s fruity and grainy. A faint bitterness too. Well, nothing impressive going on here, but except for the metallic notes it’s quite flawless. 131228
