Damn bad beer. Light orange yellow. Only redeeming value is the head which is white and long lasting. Skunk smell, metallic taste.

The Albanians are good people--some of the best--but from the looks of things they canít brew a decent beer to save their lives. I served this ice cold in order to mitigate what I assumed was going to be gigantic Albanian green-bottle skunk bomb and Iím glad I did. It turns out that Birra Tirana is a gigantic green-bottle Albanian skunk bomb. Itís sort of the Heineken of Albania--skunky, metallic, soapy, thin, stupid and ugly with tendencies toward pedophilia and other inappropriate sexual contact.

Skunky, not-finished brew aroma. Metallic taste, some hops, garbage. This beer really sucks.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Ok head, not much carbonation. Malty aroma, skunky and pretty sweet. Flavour is like some Dutch NA brews (and thatís not a good thing folks). This is NOT good.

Interesting because it's rare outside Albania, but taste is watery and too sweet. I advise you to do as richer Albanians do... drink foreign beer instead.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Drinkable, watered down, but what Pilsener isn't... No real aroma, just like any other macro brew.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden body with a long lasting medium white head. Aroma has a light flowery fruity hint with some skunky hops. Light bodied with a slight metallic taste. Some light hop flavor. Tastes slightly skunked. I bought this for 83 cents at beers of the world and its actually alot better than what I expected, but still not very good.
