Gangstergafje (1309) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2016
The beer has a simple look. It has that typical pilsener look. The color of the beer is golden yellow, with quite a rich golden glow. The beer is crystal clear and a lot of bubbles can be seen rising towards the top. On top of the beer, a crusty whit head is formed. The foam collapses quickly, to leave a soft thin drape. The smell is simple and very mild. I smell some fresh bitter hops and a sweet malty aroma. It’s in quite good balance. However, it’s not very special. It’s just pilsener, good for the thirst. The taste is also quite simple, not to use the word boring. There is a nice hoppy bitterness and a malty sweetness. The taste is a bit stronger than the smell. This is nice. All in all, a nice but simple pilsener, which is good against the thirst.

Half-litre can from a Bulgarian grocer in Brussels. Big soapy head that vanishes almost instantly. Pale gold colour. Sour corny aroma. Taste is a little metallic.

kappldav123 (6135) - GERMANY - JUL 19, 2016
Tap at the holiday poolbar. Looks good. Beer starts mild, notes of lemon, a bit metallically. Mild hoppy-bitter background. Easy to drink. Better than exspected.

labeerinthum (1082) - Milano, ITALY - MAY 8, 2016
Lattina Shumensko 1882 ABV 4,8%. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è corta. Il gusto al naso rimanda a percezioni di orzo. Il cappello di schiuma ha una scarsa tenuta, con la grandezza delle bollicine che è grossolana, a carbonazione media. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Le bollicine sono poche e fini. La carbonazione è morbida. Il colore è giallo paglierino. Il corpo è snello. L’amaro è leggero. L’intensità gustativa è leggera e la persistenza gustativa è corta. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è dissetante e semplice. Il retrogusto è veloce. Al palato arrivano sentori di pane e cereali.

jamaty (2264) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 22, 2016
Dorada nebulosa, un dedo de espuma. Aroma cereal. En boca nada que aportar. Una más de cientos de lager de producción. En este caso ni dulce ni amarga en exceso, cierto tono metálico y especiado y gas presente. Y aguda, bastante.

nickd717 (4901) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 17, 2016
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.

Mister_Li (1585) - GERMANY - FEB 17, 2016
Shumensko 1882 mit 4,8%. Klares goldgelb mit sehr wenig Schaum. Malzig, süßlich, leicht würzig, grasig, minimal herb.

2.1
olliejobbins (1577) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2015
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.
