2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Has the aroma of graininess. The taste is similar, with a light body, and just a touch of hop. Nothing wrong with it.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Lower quality, cheap beer. Not bad, but not particularly good. For the price and nicely chilled, it gets the job done

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
0,5 l bottle. ABV is 3,4 %. Very refreshing on a hot summer day, but still quite dull. Virtually tasteless, some corn and cereal aromas traceable only in the finish. Watery, of course. Bitter and dry aftertaste. Drinkable only if you’re really thirsty...
