[Bottle (330ml)] Pours a bubbly yellow-gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy overly white head. Aroma is sweet and grassy along with a bit of honey, some grain and cooked peas -- not skunky despite the green bottle so that’s good. Flavour’s better then expected, it’s sweet, grassy, grainy and a bit bitter along with some malt in the back. Not overly grainy and corny as expected. Average bodied. Not bad, I could drink this if it’s all there was available.

It has a pretty watery taste, but it’s the cheapest beer you can find in Albania.

This is from the "cool alternative" brewery in Albania compared to Birra Tirana. Dull hops, too malty, not well balanced.

Bottle thanks to Mikos! Pours hazy golden, small white fizzy head, dissipates quickly, some lacing. Aroma is pretty strong corn syrup and honey, a bit of skunk. Flavor is medium sweet and light bitter, caramel, corn syrup, a hint of grass and some skunk notes. Light body.

Clear golden beer with light carbonation to a small white head. Dull, dusty malt nose. Grain, lightly toasted, malts. Finish is empty, just some bitterness. Light, watery MF. Carbonation seems better in the mouth than visual. Less bad than expected. Thanks to Stef!

Thanks to erzengel for sharing!! Pours a a light yellow with a white head. The smell is corn, grain, some bread. The taste is grain, cardboard, artificial sweetener then ending dry. Light in body with average carbonation. Unpleasant.

Erzengel (7271) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2015
Many thanks to Cunningham for this 33cl bottle. Best before 28.5.15. Named Korça Bjonde, but 4,1% ABV. Very grainy in the nose. Sweetish corn. The beer starts neutral. Slightly sweetish malt. Not as much corn as the nose suggests. Easy to drink, fresh. Slightly bitter in the aftertaste, slightly sweetish malty body. Very light, but nice. The aftertaste is medium, fresh and moderate bitter with not too much grain on the tongue. Not too bad.

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.
