tmrmwel (1368) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2012
Can. Pours straw yellow, with almost no head. Very little aroma, and a quite normal body and carbonation. Flavour is a bit sour, but has some nice bread and toffee notes from the roasted malt, and the finish offers some vague notes of zesty hops.

now is not the same beer that it was 4-5 years a go, couse of the mass prodaction you can feel that its not fermentet enough, that thay fermented artificialy, becouse thay have no capasity for the needs of the market in Macedonia, and the mass prodaction ruin the beer

trapped (1527) - New York, TURKEY - NOV 1, 2011
Can. Fruity aroma, small whitish foamy head, rich yellow color, high carbonation, slightly bitter taste with long hoppy finish. Not bad but not very remarkable either.

Old standby from Balkan travels, surely one of the better ones out there. Robust flavors and crisp body. Few off-notes for a Balkan lager and impresses with its punch. By not f’ing things up too much it settles ahead.

niquillis (1932) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2011
On draught and bottle in various bars in Skopje, Macedonia. This is the national drink of Macedonia and you can’t avoid it in many bars. A very bland pilsner, similar to its equally uninteresting Heineken relation. Thank god for Lasko Dark which was available in some bars.

kwik-lime (1527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2011
Having been stuck with this stuff for three days in Macedonia, I can’t believe it’s in the top quartile of pale lagers. One of the thinnest palates I’ve ever tasted in a beer, skunky aftertaste and hints of rotting vegetables. I had this from can, tap and bottle and it was rancid from all three.
