Beershine's rating

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2012
2L PET bottle for hobos. Clear and golden, with lots of rising bubbles and a surprisingly stable head. The aroma is also shockingly clean, with a distinct hop character. The body is thin, and the mouthfeel is very soft. It’s probably too thin, but at this ABV it is expected. There are no off-flavors. The finish is earthy and minerally. Not bad at all, and definitely one of the better beers to come in the hobo 2L size.

Rob_D_UK (866) - Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2014
Again bought in a very large plastic bottle in Ohrid, Macedonia. Metal and grass in the aroma and taste.

Grumbo (617) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
1.5l plastic bottle from Tinex discount supermarket in Ohrid. Light gold colour with a firm long lasting white head. Mildly hoppy aroma, with grass and yeast. Medium body, good level of carbonation, with an unusually smooth texture for a pale lager. Bitterness to finish. Overall quite an enjoyable beer which fares well versus its peers.

Nuffield (3713) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2014
Moderate golden color, with relatively low carbonation. Cheap aroma, hint of metal, grassy. Immediate sensation of it having a thin body, though some carbonation and metallic bitterness distracts the palate enough later on that you don’t have time to think much about it. A little hint of strawberry but otherwise a fairly ugly finish. The worst of the first three Macedonian beers I have tried thus far. But as the label says, only 29 denars for a .5L glass bottle! Bottle bought in Skopje.

bosta (119) - SLOVENIA - JUN 7, 2013
500ml bottle bought in Skopje. Pours pale yellow with average white head. A bit sweetness in the aroma. Thin body, very watery, a bit bitter and dry aftertaste.

darioklc (540) - Karlovac, CROATIA - NOV 18, 2012
Plastic PET 1,5l. Bought in Macedonia. It was very cheap but also very bad.

1.5
   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 1/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 6/20
Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 30, 2012
Has the aroma of graininess. The taste is similar, with a light body, and just a touch of hop. Nothing wrong with it.

ivogievski (2) - - JUN 17, 2012 does not count
Lower quality, cheap beer. Not bad, but not particularly good. For the price and nicely chilled, it gets the job done

luttonm (2286) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2011
1.5l PET bottle found in Ohrid, MK. Cheap, pale alternative to Skopsko. Incredibly metallic and acid-like. Drinkable, but not something to seek out.

0.8
   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 1/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 2/20
Eructoblaster (3084) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2010
Bottle - 1,5l. Boring pale gold body with an average white bubbly head. Its malty/hoppy aroma is barely detectable. Tastes exactly like carbonated water mixed with rotten corn syrup. Competes with the water of the Vardar river and joins my Drainpour Hall of Shame.
