JefVerstraete (1458) - Ghent, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle in Korçe, Albania. From old notes. Yellow golden colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Watery with malty notes, cardboard, iron. Unbalanced, not good.

Bottle in Shkodra. Clear golden color, fluffy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of white pepper, dusty hay. Taste is smooth lemony straw and subtle pepper. Decent enough.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle (4,1% ABV). A pale yellow beer, with an average sized, fizzy, mostly diminishing white head. The aroma is lightly malty (corn, cereals), lightly hoppy (grass). The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, light to moderate final bitterness. A not so dirty rendition, fortunately. On the other hand not much to enjoy.

Bottle at the bar at the top of the Dajti Tower Belvedere Hotel, having ridden the Dajti Ekspres cable car from Tirana. Pale gold colour lager with a bubbly white head. Mild aroma of malt and hay. Quite high in carbonation, thin body with a sweet honey finish.

Rob_D_UK (806) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Stopped off and had a bottle of this in a café by the river in Shkoder. Was quite refreshing but that was probably because of the heat. Fairly sweet malt taste, bit watery.

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2014
Typical Southern European warm weather pilsener. Grassy and not as bitter as one would have hoped, it works best when very cold. Good head on it however, and well enough made to avoid being made fun at for being Albanian. Had in Albania, brought bottles to Corfu and Oslo.

MarkoNm (579) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 8, 2014
Out of a few Albanian beers I have tried, Korca is probably the best among them. Pours a clear golden color, topped with about two fingers of white head. The aroma is usual malty smell complemented with some grains. The taste starts slightly sweet(ish) followed by a nice bitterness throughout. The finish is nicely bitter. Tastes great in a hot day, easily drinkable.

Martinus (2892) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2014
Golden colour, diminishing white head. Malty aroma, quite herbal. Sweet malty flavour, light bitter, cat pee. Bitter malty finish, silage. Not great, but well, what’s to expect.
(From 33cL bottle shared @ the pre-RBBWG get-together at Tim’s place. From trade with Cunningham, thanks!)
