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. txspartan (1080) - Berchem, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2011
Nice flavour for a canned lager. Watery texture, though. Not entirely without merit. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 12, 2011
Bottle, from Romanian-Bulgarian grocer in Paphos. Ugly gold with barely any head. Mild corny aroma. Cornflake sugars cloy on the tongue. Sweet-sour. Mildly unpleasant. SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle: Poured a pale to golden color with a huge white head. Aroma is a sour corn. Taste is bitter corn and some metal. heavy (2817) - 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.

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. Marko (5682) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 23, 2011
Shumensko Premium Beer, 4.6%, huge thanks to Marin for bringing it from, humm, Sofia I guess. Shared with ogivlado and heavy. Poured a golden body with a small white head that went away fast. Light grainy, interesting sweet nose, ending dry. Weak notes of corn I guess. The taste is... humm, light yeastiness and some malt (dog food, eh). And that’s it. No real bitterness. Ah well, what could one expect from a mainstream Bulgarian lager... Leighton (21231) - 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. Sigmund (7456) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2010
500 ml brown glass bottle with tear-off cap, as Shumensko Premium Beer. ABV is 4.6%. A gift, BB date seems to be 13.12.08. Extremely pale yellow colour, huge white head. Sweetish aroma with strong "chemical" notes, vile stuff. Soft mouthfeel. Bland and boring flavour with just a hint of sweetness and minimal hops, but not totally undrinkable. fonefan (49278) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2010
Clear medium yellow orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, grain, toasted, light hoppy, green grass. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is light medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft.
