Eructoblaster (2983) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2010
On tap at Kaj Marchalot (Skopke, Macedonia). Blond body with a thin white foamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with herbal and bready hints. Fair taste lacks complexity. Ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Not too bad for a Balkanic macro-lager.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - APR 29, 2010
Draught in Skopje. Pale golden with a medium white head. A dire aroma of wet cardboard, cereal and corn syrup. Flavour is much the same. Thin and watery. Finish is nothingness thankfully.

ectuohy27 (570) - ESTONIA - MAR 9, 2010
Mild, inoffensive, predominantly malt, light lager...served in 11.2oz/330ml bottle, not can as depicted. Easily drinkable in massive quantities, I suspect! Better than Niksicko (another Balkan brew I tried recently), and no doubt the best national beer between Union (SLO) and Efes (TR)! $1.49/bottle is not unaffordable either

johndoughty (3937) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2009
Bottle. Golden with no carbonation. Hoppy with no real body. Exceeded my expectations.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Can my friend brought back from eastern Europe that I never got around to cracking open until now. Pours a pale, transparent yellow with a surprisingly thick head. Aroma has hay and sweet, breakfast-cereal malts. Took me three sips to get anything out of the flavor. Some corn, grain, and that breakfast cereal note keeps coming back. Fizzy, wimpy, lacking any real character. Blech.

# 1763 ersma: mein land nr. 66 mittelpilsige farbe mit deutlichen schwebeteilchen. schäumt gut und mittelfein auf, der schaum ist stabil. der geruch ist hopfig. der antrunk ist deutlich hopfig und herb. leichte blumigkeit. die mitte bleibt herb, aber malzige noten tauchen auf, die sich zum abgang hin verstärken. die dose ist in grün-gold und weiß gehalten, auf der einen seite kyrillisch und auf der anderen seite in lateinischen buchstaben beschriftet. fazit: den enthusiasmus meiner vortester kann ich nicht teilen, aber auch nicht die ansichten der crew. kein spitzenpils, aber guter durchschnitt, der durch die hopfenblumigkeit punkten kann.

as (161) - Belgrade / Hamburg, - AUG 25, 2008
0,5 l can. Standard Lager appearance. Quite sweet malty flavor with dominant butterscotch and honey aromas. The finish is more on the hoppy side and one can trace some grain aromas. Sweet aftertaste, again. Very boring but still Macedonia’s best.

Canned. Not bad at all. Pale beer with fine head. Decent body, aromatic hops. Hay, grass, grain.
