3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice 2 finger foamy head.
Color is amber brown dark reddish.
Smell caramel, malts, hops, slight hint of chocolate and some spices.
Taste is a fine and soft mix of caramel, spices, malts, yeast, some sugars, a very slight hint of chocolate and hint of bitter and hop taste (just a very slight hint).
Soft (milk stout like density and softness) and smooth taste. Slight hint of nuts.
Drank it cold when it was warm, delicious beer (for Albanian standards).

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33 l bottle, great thanks to my friend Vanja who brought it in Tirane! It poured dark brown body with small brownish head. Caramel and bit of dry grass in its aroma. Sugary and caramelly malty flavor, some grassy hops within, relatively thin bodied, but fine and not offensive for sure. Sweet and quite long finish, some artifical notes at its end. Pretty nice for an Albanian beer...but Pils...

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled(330ml). -as Korça Dark Pils, courtesy of and shared with Doggythedog (thanks!).
Nice ruby amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, caramel nose. Except light malt, everything else is brown sugar and caramel. Some weak weak touch of hops in the sweet finish. A way to sweet. Ok, it’s from Albania so you have to be patient.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33l bottle brought from Albania by a friend (huge thanks, Krešimir!), shared with ogivlado
Poured a nice darker red-brown body with a big off white-tan head. A pungent milk caramel nose, just lightly dusty. The taste is, well, milk caramel again, or maybe just milk someone dissolved some brown sugar in. Some lightly acidic bitter hoppiness shows up too to save the day. Simple, but not unpleasant and more solid than it seemed at first. Coming from Albania, it’s adequately strange tasting, but manages to exceed the very low expectations. And someone should really teach them what "Pils" means.
