omhper (19932) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2013
Bottled, from Shkodër. Clear pale golden, mid sized head. Fruity corn aroma. Mid sweet with light body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. The most evident flavours are compost heap and boiled vegetables. Low bitterness. Not a good lager, even by Albanian standards.

Travlr (13196) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle in Shkodra, and a nice looking bottle actually. Clear golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of biscuit dough. Taste is sweet, malty, light pepper and biscuit.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 30, 2012
Straw colour. No head. The aroma is a bit appley. Taste is diacetyl and acetaldehyde...now that is a winning combination.

Koelschtrinker (11038) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 2, 2011
Milder Beginn, z.T. Kurz wässrig. Im Mittelteil steht die Herbe allein und wirkt ein wenig ruppig, kurz darauf trocken. Bitterer, weiter trockener Abgang. /8/7/8/9/8

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2014
Good dense just off-white head over deep golden beer. Raw grain/s, sweetish, and, well, unrefined. Sweet grains and malt and a raw, grassy finish. Bit milky. Light to medium bodied. Leaves a dirty, sticky lining in the throat. Really. My second Albanian . Txs to Stef, unfortunately, the tastes leaves to be desired.

DSG (6329) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks mom for this bottle! Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of corn and cardboard. Sweetish corny flavor with a drier finish with faint bitterness. Light-bodied.

ogivlado (5882) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 19, 2012
Bottled 330ml. -Courtesy of heavy, shared with him and Marko. Supposed to be red but it’s bright yellow coloured with small white head and wet cornflakes nose. Wet cornflakes and something similar to boiled vegetables in the taste with rather dry watery finish. Not good.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Bottle in Shkoder. Gold and lame head. Aroma is sour, and the flavors are worse with terrible array of sourness from green apples to soured milk. Awful and too highly carbonated to gulp the pain away.
