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.

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.

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.
