2016-02-26. Dark yellow body, small white head. Aroma is a bit odd, sweet pale malt, caramel notes, possibly a bit of oxidation. Flavour is similar, muted caramel notes, lightly rough grainy notes. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Not very good. 4/2/4/3/7 Bottle shared by Blankboy.

[My bottle (330ml) shared with GregClow, jercraigs & mabel] Pours an oily-looking yellow-gold with little to no head. Aroma is malty, grainy, grassy and buttery -- could be worse. Flavour of caramel malt, a touch of fruit, grain and light grassy hops. Light to average bodied. Not good but not as bad as I feared.

Nice, refreshing lager for hot summer days in Albania. Without any edges, good or bad ones.

tomekk1978 (1251) - Z±bki, POLAND - SEP 3, 2015
Aromat: słodowo- owocowy (wiśnie), nieco herbatników i karmelu, wsparte ziołowym chmielem.

Wygląd: barwa złota, głęboka, klarowna. Piana biała, średnio pęcherzykowa, niewielka i szybko opadająca.

Smak: zdecydowana słodycz, wręcz lepkość, co ciekawe przy tak niskim ekstrakcie. Następnie kwaskowość, owoce, z wyczuwalną chmielową kontrą. Całkiem to nawet smaczne, choć lagera czy pilsa raczej nie przypomina. Goryczka poniżej średniej, jednak zdecydowanie wyczuwalna, nieco drażniąca i dość długa. Zaskakująco wysoka pełnia, jak na tak mizerny woltaż. Zapewne przez słodycz i stosunkowo wysokie wysycenie.

Na koniec małe wyjaśnienie. Na mojej etykiecie nie było podanego żadnego stylu, do którego można przyporządkować to piwo. Dlatego też pozwoliłem sobie na recenzję z przymrużeniem oka. Przyjmując, iż jest to pils trzeba by odjąć 1 do 1,5 punktu. Mimo tego śmieszny wynalazek z Albanii, który dostałem w prezencie od znajomych. Dzięki.

Strange beer. Standard off-putting cheap hop aroma, but really refined and interesting taste, with lots of yeasty elements almost like Lithuania; anything but typical. Finishes cleanly too. Intrigued, too bad I didn’t bring back more!

Bottle @ home. Aroma is hay, malt, cardboard. Flaovur is watery hay, malt cardboard, some herbal notes, could be hop.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with a quite decent white head. Very mild malty aroma, some grainy notes can be picked up. Slight sweetness at first, followed by mild bitterness. Not bad, pretty decent when ice cold. And refreshing.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4186) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 28, 2014
For the country tick, this lager is a deep orange gold almost neon in its intensity. The nose is fetid drain water, sugar & menthol. Yuck. Thin bodied with a slick oily mouthfeel which is somehow combined with a sandpapery carbonation. The taste is sugar, corn & drain water... You gotta be motivated to drink a whole bottle of this swill... Which I am not, a taste was enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks DSG. Pours yellow carbonated with a small head, aroma of apples, corn, caramel, flavor is harsh with cardboard, apple, corn, malt, light bodied.
