0.33l can courtesy of an acquaintance (thanks Ana!)
Poured a yellow body with a big white head that wanished fast. Grassy aroma (kinda nice), touch of egg. Somewhat watery, soft mouthfeel and weak soft maltiness and lemon. Some crude herbal hops break through and end up in the aftertaste. Some egginess that kinda ruins the overall picture. Corn? Hmm... All in all, a passable macro lager, and my first macedonian beer.

330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A soft clean lager with some faint crisp awareness of hops in the finish. Quite pleasant and drinkable without being remarkable in any respect. Perhaps a hint of herb - mint perhaps - in the aroma.

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle. Thanks MaliMisho. Clear yellow color. Aroma and flavor dominated by grass. Some skunk at the finish. I did not detect any hops like one would expect in a Pilsner.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2007 It has a beautiful yellow color, and its flavor and aroma compliment each other perfectly.

Very pale straw color with a diminishing white head. Grain and grass aromas that are quite typical, but certainly nothing to ruse the senses. Fairly thick in fell per style. Light pale malt enveloped by a strong bitterness. Dry finish, with a light return of grain. The bitterness is there without the flavor. I could see this being quite quenching and clearing on a hot day.

Thanks to HA3OV bringing me this one. Comes with a different can design nw, which looks better. Light golden color, thin small white head. Lemon scent. with light hops. matching good for the warm summers of the countrz

From a bottle. The body was medium gold with a dense white head. The aroma was bready with some green bell peppers and a little bit of corn. The taste was metallic with some rubbing alcohol. There was also a little bit of corn. Highly carbonated and not pleasing.

10.26.06 Seems like Macedonian exports have taken a pretty big downturn since Alexander the Great. Where is they pull-off top promised to us on the cardboard sixpack. LIES! Overall, a decent terrible pilsner.
