Bottled, 0.33l. Clear pale golden color with medium frothy white head and average carbonation. Aroma of floral hops, barley malt and notes of corn. Common malty taste with grainy / corn notes, plain mouthfeel and light bitterness at finish. Light body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Average pale lager, good for Albania...

Medium gold with lots of carbonation. The aroma is mossy hops and medium butterness. Taste is pale malt, lots of butter, and a hint of vague hop. I avoided this one the rest of the way through Albania.

Draft in Albania. Lively with lots of rising bubbles stable head. Unfortunately aroma is filled with diacetyl. The palate is teeming with butter and tainted by diacetyl. Underneath is maybe some toasted malt but is too buttery to let anything good emerge.

50cl from tap in Sarandë, Albania. Golden with decent white head. Tempting appearance and weak aroma of malt. Not much flavor in this one, but it tasted very fresh. Lightly sweet without much bitterness. Didn’t try it from cans or bottles but from tap it was very refreshing. Nice and very easy to drink lager for hot summer days. It was in fact the only beer we tried from tap in Albania. Surprisingly refreshing and no unpleasant aromas. Had it several times from tap during our stay in Sarandë. More refreshing than more flavourful beers from bottles. Quite nice for an Albanian lager. Nice surprice. (Sarandë, Albania - 2011-05-23)

Can from Koelschtrinker - vielen Dank! Clear pale golden colour, really large and creamy white head. Shy grainy aroma. Light-bodied, shy malt flavours, grainy, hints of corn, shy hoppy finish. Smooth palate. Rather mild and light, but quite pleasant in general.

Really watery palate with massive hints of soap and cabbage. Not much hop at all - terrible beer.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled in Vlorë, Albania. Clear pale golden, airy head. Vague fruity nose, then nothing! Mid sweet and thin bodied, watery and empty with the vaguest hint of boiled vegetables. No bitterness. Redundant.
