Travlr (25486) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle in Shkodra, and a nice looking bottle actually. Clear golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of biscuit dough. Taste is sweet, malty, light pepper and biscuit.

omhper (25346) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2013
Bottled, from Shkodër. Clear pale golden, mid sized head. Fruity corn aroma. Mid sweet with light body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. The most evident flavours are compost heap and boiled vegetables. Low bitterness. Not a good lager, even by Albanian standards.

Koelschtrinker (20768) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 2, 2011
Milder Beginn, z.T. Kurz wässrig. Im Mittelteil steht die Herbe allein und wirkt ein wenig ruppig, kurz darauf trocken. Bitterer, weiter trockener Abgang. /8/7/8/9/8

Oakes (18167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 30, 2012
Straw colour. No head. The aroma is a bit appley. Taste is diacetyl and acetaldehyde...now that is a winning combination.

TBone (17773) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle @Sarande sand bar 11.7.2013
Golden color, clear color, small white head. Light notes of diacetyl in the nose, sweet maltyness. Light-bodied. Buttery notes, sweet malty, hints of bitterness and metal in the finish. Slightly unclean.

DSG (15035) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks mom for this bottle! Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of corn and cardboard. Sweetish corny flavor with a drier finish with faint bitterness. Light-bodied.

jercraigs (10635) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2016
2016-02-26. Dark yellow body, small white head. Aroma is a bit odd, sweet pale malt, caramel notes, possibly a bit of oxidation. Flavour is similar, muted caramel notes, lightly rough grainy notes. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Not very good. 4/2/4/3/7 Bottle shared by Blankboy.

JorisPPattyn (10061) - BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2014
Good dense just off-white head over deep golden beer. Raw grain/s, sweetish, and, well, unrefined. Sweet grains and malt and a raw, grassy finish. Bit milky. Light to medium bodied. Leaves a dirty, sticky lining in the throat. Really. My second Albanian . Txs to Stef, unfortunately, the tastes leaves to be desired.

jmgreenuk (9695) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle at some bar in Tirana. A medium bitter pils with a little malt in the palate. Quite refreshing and no strange flavours in the finish. Probably the best pils I have had in Albania.

Quack-Duck (9487) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2011
bottle from Kölschtrinker - thanks! Clear golden colour, mid-sized white head. Mild malty flavours, shy hopp touch.
