1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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)
