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.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
33cl bottle, 4,8% Rating from somewhere before 2007.
Golden im Glas, penetranter, nicht passend herb-metallischer Geruch. Das Bier beginnt malzig-getreidig. Im Hauptteil kommt eine scharf-penetrante Herbe hinzu, die mit den leicht metallischen Anklängen das ganze fast untrinkbar macht. Ich befürchte, das muss so nicht… Der Nachgeschmack ist penetrant muffig-bitter, nicht wirklich trinkbar. --> Sollte es mir nochmal irgendwo begegnen, muss ein Neutest her! Dabei war es noch haltbar...

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Bottle, hotel in Macedonia)
A shade darker than the Dab Original that sat alongside it but still
light. Noroma. Palate 3-. Actually displays light malts a little, and a hop. Still a
pale lager but not a bad one.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can 0,5L. Thanks to Kita for this one. It’s clear golden colour with big frothy white head. Aroma is mosly malty, like grain, hay, straw with some citrusy hops and earthy yeasts. Taste is moderate bitter, so is the aftertaste. Light to medium body with watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Drinkable and refreshing summer beer. Better than I expected.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught in Skopje. Pours pale golden with a medium white head. Very week and a bit sweet aroma. Thin and watery taste and slightly bitter and dry aftertaste. Typical SE European lager. Drinkable light summer lager. Not very good, but not too bad.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2013 The aroma of this beer is reminiscent of bread malts, yeast, and some hints of citrus, and the appearance is a hazy dark golden with a white ring on the top of the liquid. The taste is mildly sour and a touch sweet, but the finish leaves a bad taste in your mouth however brief it may be, which can’t be completely saved by the medium body, thin texture, and the soft carbonation.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
It would be unfair if this one would get a mediocre score as its way below other mediocre Pilsner or Lager beers. But, this one ist still drinkable with a strange metallic and watery taste. Some light malt and some bitterness are in the game without making this one really refreshing. Drinkable and good with a meal - not more.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can. Deep golden colour with low steady head and medium to thin body. Nose of malt. Taste of medium bitter hops, low malt, ripe grains, sour fruits and straw. Easy to drink and certainly quite refreshing when you are thirsty, but otherwise it is below average.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Canned, 0.33l. Clear golden color with large frothy white head, poor lacing and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of grainy malt, grass and some citrus. Taste is quite rich malty for such a style, followed by refreshing grainy malt, with dry mouthfeel and long lasting moderate bitter aftertaste. Light to medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Surprisingly good...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is the one eastern euro that people tell me is actually good, even my Franconian friend. The appearance is Czech pils, a darker gold with an industrial-looking head. The smell is grainy, some mild floral hops. The flavor follows. It is hoppier than the average EPL but it really is more of the same. It is better though.
