Splitenz (329) - 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 (399) - 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 (2739) - Nijmegen, 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!)

Bottle at home. Not good at all. Watery taste, a bit of malt. Aroma: like a typical lager.

Clear pale straw yellow beer, big irregular fizzy white head, unstable, dissipates immediately, bit adhesive. aroma: cow fodder, hay, dirty grains, smells like cheap pilsener beer. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: sour start, grains, bit malty, cow fodder, very watery. Aftertaste: little bitter, grains, some cow fodder. Meh. Albania: TICK!

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2014
Bouteille 33cl de et partagée avec Tinus. Dorée, col blanc. Comme souvent avec les pils venant de l’est ou des pays ayant quasi aucunes traditions brassicoles, il ne fallait pas s’attendre à qcq chose d’exceptionnel. Malt pils, cara sur une rondeur maïs en fin de bouche. Sec avec un fini métallique typique du style de grande production. Note de grains concassés avec très peu d’effet venant du houblon. Amertume reste ainsi faiblarde.

TBone (12321) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle from Sarande
Clear golden color, good white head. When opened, skunky. Corn, boiled vegetables and skunky grassyness in the nose. Light-bodied. Sweet maltyness, grassy, some diacetylic notes. Harsh finish. Unclean.

humlelala (943) - DENMARK - SEP 8, 2013
(33 cl bottle from minimarket in Saranda; BBD: August 26th 2014) Pours a clear, pale golden with lively carbonation, plenty of white head and decent retention. Aroma is grainy, dusty malty with a hint of noble hops. Watery texture, medium to light body with a short, slightly dry finish. Flavour is is slightly sweet with a balancing bitterness. Okay but nothing special.
