2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from local supermarket during stay in Tirana. Country #107. Bottle definitely Stela Selekt though says only 4% ABV. Pale gold in colour, with a small white head. Aroma of hops and grass. Rather thin, average carbonation, not much to it really.

12/11 Another 0.33 l bottle thanks to Kreso and Marko! It poured golden body with medium to bigger head. Selected aroma of salt and non selected faint hops, because they selected everything and put it away from this brew. Weak, slightly salty and slightly sweet flavor, thin for sure, with extremely short finish which becomes a bit more sweet afterwards. Absolute premium quality, as usual.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Huge thanks to Krešimir for bringing this one to Croatia! Well, it’s certainly not common that I get to be the first one to rate a beer from a country I’ve never been to, but hey, who cares. This poured a golden body with a medium sized white head that went away relatively fast, so no surprises there. Almost no aroma, vaaaaague malt. Now that’s Albanian beer that we all... well, try once and try not to try ever again. The taste is salty and still empty, with some extremely light alcohol. Or vegetables. Can someone please go there and teach them what a pils is. PLEASE.
