I expected less for such Bulgarian beer. Not bad for Dunkel/tmavy Malty, sweety, but still watery. Boozy, but only 5,5% Decent.

Draft at Pri Dunav, Ruse. Clear deep amber with a thick creamy head that lasted. considerable lacing. Bread, hay and cereal aroma with hints of wood and vanilla. Good mouth feel, not too creamy, lively medium bitterness, well balanced. As is usual with Bulgarian lagers, draft is better than bottle. Canned Shumensko is now from Serbia, and I will review it only if I can bring myself to waste more money, as it is appalling. Overall, a nice medium-bodied draft lager.

Thanks Pasca for this beer that you gave me from your country after your holidays. I tried this can in my room hotel in Paris. In my point of view, it is a classical lager, nothing sexy but it makes the job to be refresh. The color is yellow/gold, normal carbonation, thin and white foam. The taste is standard, a bit metalic, malt, hop, there is a side watery, easy to drink.

Larnaka 20/7 2017. 50 cl can from BG-Zaria Mini market (Bulgarian outfit). Bulgarian text on the can but also a roaring lion. ABV of 4,8 (not 4,6). Pours clear yellow with bubbly white head. Settles as flimsy remnants of foam. No lacing. Aroma is sweet malts, grains and light fruity, sour notes. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by a more distinct bitterness. A little rough. Aftertaste is bitter with some burnt rubber thrown in. A relief with an Eastern European pale lager which is not sweet and flat. But I could do without the burnt rubber.

can from bulgarian supermarket in chania. clear yellow, small white head. Faint sweet malty aroma, not much of a hoppy balance. flavor is bitter industrial hoppy, balanced by mild malts. in other words a typlical macro lager, just a bit better than the discount ones, but a good distance from the craft ones. I cannot place the reason exactly, but this one remins me of san miguel.

Pale golden body with a white frothy head. Aroma is light, but there’s notes of some grassy hops. And all of the usual suspects: pale malt, grain and corn. Taste is slightly bitter and malty.

50cl (4,8% ABV.) as a gift. Pours clear pale yellow with a minimal, white head. Mild grainy aroma with hints of fruits, grass and cooked vegetables. Sweet and grainy with mild grainy flavours and hints of acidity and bitterness. Fairly standard industrial pale lager.

Bottle in Sofia - nice design - golden color, white head. taste is grainy, edgy, bitter finish. unlike the majority of bulgarian beers, could be a nice effort for a Pilsner if it wasnt for that sweet corn taste lingering around in the background.

Velice podprůměrné pivo. Pokud je v Bulharsku nouze spíše bych se přiklonil k Pirinsku. Pivo očekávatelně prázdné, sladové. Mírný nádech kukuřice.

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.

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.

The use of corn is a no-go for me and leaves a bad taste in the mouth. The head and the color are good, but that is where everything ends for this one.

Can share at Cotteridge II as Shumensko. To be honest, I didn’t catch the rest of the name! Many thanks to Leighton for this. Pale yellow, still, small foamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is papery, corn, buttery. Body is smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is corny, soft sugary malt, light bitterness. A pretty plain pale lager. (2.1)

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.

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.

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.
