Bottled in Palase. Light golden color, small head. Vegetable nose. Aroma is corn malt, sweet boiled vegetables. Flavour is non existing but the smell reminds me my mom's compost heap. Sweet and no bitter at all. Crap.

Butelka 0,5 l. Wypite 10.09.2017. Jasne, klarowne piwo. Mocno słodowe w smaku, bez aromatu. Słabo z chmielem.

Kolejne piwo, przywiezione prosto z Albanii! Złota barwa, idealnie klarowne. Piany praktycznie nie uświadczymy... Aromat słodowy i tyle. W smaku również słodowe i to dość mocno. Goryczki właściwie nie ma. Wysycenie średnie... Piwo jest lekkie, niemal wodniste, ale nie pozostawia po sobie niemiłych wspomnień...

Bottle from supermarket in Ksmail. Really not very pleasant to be honest. Eek

50p on an Albanian supermarket. Clean pilsner type lager. Thirst quencher on hot summer days. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2017 25-09-2017; bottle; at home (bought somewhere in Albania). The beer is just a golden pilsener. The color of the beer is a nice golden yellow. The beer is crystal clear. A small amount of foam forms, that collapses quickly. It looks good. The smell is just pilsener to. There is a nice hoppy bitterness and a good malty sweet touch. The balance of the beer is quite nice. The taste is pretty much the same as the taste. Nice bitter and sweet balance. The beer is quite fresh and easy drinkable. Nice.

Cunningham (8258) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2016
Appearance: Clear golden color with an ok white head. Dotted lacing.
Aroma: Caramel malt and mild herbal.
Palate: Medium (light) body. Moderate sweet and a decent bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Caramel malty, some grain and mild herbal hoppy.
Overall impression: Not that bad for a pale lager at 4%. But nothing to recommend either. Surely ok at 35 degrees Celsius at an Albanian beach. Not fit for Norwegian summer.
Personal stats: Bottle from Torbjørn

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.
