0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
500ml bottle bought in Skopje. Pale yellow with thin white head. Unpleasant aroma of yeast and a bit sour. Terrible sour and bitter taste. One of the worst if not the worst beer in Macedonia.

At the local cafes they say that this is definitely the best local beer, and I think that’s likely to be true. This would not be uncomfortable in many European countries--other than a little light skunkiness (not much at all), there’s a decent composition with more appropriate flavors (e.g. hops) than inappropriate ones (chemical, corn, etc.). Bottle in Skopje at a random cafe.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear, golden content covered with quite a small white head with virtually no retention.
There’s not much to the nose, besides the regular hoppy aroma and some grains in the back.
The taste is similar. Sweet at first, followed by a very gentle bitterness, but also quite watery.

Quite a nice lager from Macedonia. Smooth, medium-bodied, not too hoppy. refreshing. That’s all I ask for from a beer from the balkan region.

Very nice beer. I was in the Balkans and in Macedonia for a few months last year and this and Skopsko is all I drank.

Taste is surprisingly hoppy for a mainstream beer. There’s a light malt character backing it up, too. A pretty good example of a mainstream lager.

One of the worst beers in Macedonia. I’ve tried draught and from bottle. Both were sour and bitter and very watery.
