MarkoNm (2344) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 6, 2015
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 (4596) - 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

Grumbo (1363) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle from a supermarket in Tirana. Pours a deeper golden colour with a just off white head. Mild aroma of malts and hops. Average carbonation, medium sweetness, with a sweetish finish. It’s ok.

hrabren (920) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 22, 2014
0.3 bottle from Tirana thanks to Vlatka. Drank from the bottle in the park. Aroma of... Nothing. Feels like boiled water with some sugar in it, then chilled. Nothing. Not worth trying.
