1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2012 06/01 0.33 l can courtesy of and shared with Doggythedog, for whom I thank to get this hardly available beer...and my first rate for Albania. Poured golden body with smaller head. A bit skunky aroma, malty with some rust and reminding to NAs. Flavor somewhat bitterish and sweetish, very watery, and too malty, just as the can says "pure malt". Not unpleasant as aroma, but not either good. Finish is short and watery. Not so awfully bad but crap anyhow.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2007 Canned. Golden colour, rich airy head. Grassy nose. Medium sweet and ligt bodied with fairly soft mouthfeel. Some peculiar flavour of dusty fudge before a swift spicy finish. More than decent industrial lager.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
One of three cans of this brought from Albania by a friend (thanks Krešimir!).
Poured a nice golden colour with a thick small white head that went away at a medium pace. The nose is nice, malty/honeyish, a touch of hop. The taste is quite watery but pleasant enough, some chewy/herbal bitterish hoppiness in the background is pretty much all there is. Quite weak maltiness, some lemon and some saltiness. Definitely a quencher, and does its job very well. Had many, many worse beers than this. Expected worse from Albania.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Norga brew since 2000. Seems to be a thirst quencher mainly. Rather thin taste, watery. The little I could taste was alright. Malty, hoppy, bitter finish, but very watery.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Canned(500ml). -Brought by a friend from a business trip in Albania. Pours a hazy yellow coloured with a medium sized quick disappearing white head. Stale cheese cake nose. Weak aroma of malt and rice with odd and very sweet caramel candy notes. Moderate sweet finish. I’m not sure is this just a bad can or this beer tastes like I’ve already mentioned above.
