Shumensko Pivo (Carlsberg Bulgaria) Reviews

Shumensko Premium 2.1
360ml bottle. Drank straight from the bottle so can’t comment on appearance. Aroma is grass and a little sweet malt. Actually decent taste. Or not terrible at least. Quite heavily carbonated. Not sweet and refreshing enough.

Shumensko Premium 2.1
Bottle. Kind of better than Zagora, but still has the certain Bulgarian beer style with that slightly unpleasant smell and a taste that lacks complexity. Decent, though.

Plastic Bottle 2ltr: Clear golden colored brew with an faintly sweet bitter taste. When open the cap an grassy flavor i smell, like most East-European Lagers. Decent thirstquencher, mine first Bulgarian tick. Bought the bottle at an Bulgarian Shop with the name Supermarkt Nansi Zuiddijk 93, Zaandam.

Shumensko Svetlo Pivo 1.3
It’s a cheap beer, brewed to be cheap. However, the price is too high for its quality.

Shumensko Premium 1.4
Extremt svag doft med inslag av söt majs och hö. Mycket ljus brygd och ett kort skum. Smaken är totalt karaktärslös men inte helt blaskig. Finns en aning fyllighet och beska men kan bara duga som en törstsläckarreserv om inget bättre stĺr till buds — inget intressant men heller inga fel. Typisk öststatsöl frĺn närmsta matbutik.

Shumensko Premium 2.5
50cl Can from a Bulgarian shop. ABV is 4.8%, label only mentions 1882, no Premium whatsoever. Clear golden colour, dense white head that diminishes fast. Aroma is not so nice, skunky, cheap, ugh.. Flavour is way better, soft, medium sweet, light malty, touch of honey, fruity, very light-bitter finish. Light-bodied, smooth. Went down well, but smells awful.

Shumensko Premium 2.4
Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma is mild but has some slightly skunky grass and straw. Flavor has a bit more grass and stale hoppy spice...mild but not too bad. Mouthfeel is light / medium and the finish is dry and mildly tangy/grassy/skunky.

Shumensko T’mno 2.8
BOTTLE 50 CL. Very light burnt sugar and hops aroma. The flavour starts light sweet with pretty decent spicy bitterness and some woody/charcoal notes in the finish. Light and simple, but not bad.

Bottle. Алк 4,3% Густ 10,7% Аромат солодово-квітковий. Світло-жовтий, шапка крупнозерниста, нетривка. Смак солодовий, травянистий. В післясмаці приємна гіркота. Зважаючи, що Болгарія далеко не пивне Ельдорадо Досить пристойний лагер.

PET láhev 2200 ml. Aroma je příjemně sladové. Pěna je jasně bílá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je žlutá. Chuť je sladová s jemným nádechem banánů, finiš je středně hořký a držící, v ústech pivo působí průměrně, má střední říz a je dobře pitelné. Jedná se o dobrý světlý ležák.

Shumensko Premium 2.2
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.

Shumensko Premium 2.1
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

Shumensko Svetlo Pivo 2.6
Bottle. This is something akin to a helles with notes of corn, rather malty but not too watery for what it is. I found it rather likeable and it was my second choice when it came to pale lagers (it always does) in Bulgaria.

Shumensko Premium 2.5
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.

One of the few Bulgarian beers, that still hold their ground. This beer will take you not only through a mouth journey, but a journey through Bulgaria’s history and taste...

Shumensko Premium 1.9
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.

Shumensko Premium 2.5
50cl can, BB 16/02/2014. Can mentions brewed by carlsberg Serbia for Bulgarian import. Dorée, col blanc moyen. Arôme reste centré sur les malts, le tout étant assez faible, houblon fleuri et herbacé pour une effluve amer trčs discrčte. Palais de malt pils cara moyen, note de houblons procurant qcq pointes de citronné. Le tout garde une certaine douceur en fin de bouche. Reste trčs typique pour ce style de bičre, fini amer voire métallique avec une pointe houblon épicé. Sans plus.
