1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can, in Nis. Medium gold with a fairly lively appearance. Mine even has a little lace! Aroma is rather dry, with a hint of white pepper. That peppery character, which we presume and hope comes from hops, continues in the palate. A bit thin, but the hop character saves this one from the swill graveyard.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Handbottle shared by phaleslu.(my first Macedonian beer). Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have pale bready malts, crackers, grass, straw, a very mild earthy character, just a splash of fruit, typical boring pale lager, but we seem to be getting a bit better with each one, light bodied and forgettable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Handbottle from shrubber85- thanks again, Roger! Pours a pretty much clear gold color with a white head. Notes of straw, bready and crackery malt, grass, and faint fruit and lightly vegetal (carrot?) notes. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Not much to it, but easy drinking and not bad.

It has been a journey. One could say it has been a travl. 5000 beers might not seem like much when you compare it to those with 13k or 30k. Gene was kind enough to provide this gem to me as both my 5000 and a country tick. Poured a clear pale yellow color, with a fluffy white head. Not much lacing. Aroma of sweet straw, light malt, grass. Taste is pretty neutral. boring, but not awful for what it could have been. Thanks everyone for getting me this far.

Macedonia choć już całkiem daleko na południu do Europy należy, zatem w niej również znajdziemy typowego eurolagera (nic dziwnego skoro Heineken właścicielem). W smaku ciężko odróżnić od naszego Żywca czy Tyskiego.
