Clear yellow and expectable top, bread and chewing gum on the nose, perhaps a sugerless watery chewing gum taste with bitter notes that dominate at the end. Depends on the price, if on sale, it’s decent with a nice looking bottle.

Clear golden appearance, medium head. Grassy and malty aroma, medium hops notes. Light sweetness and bitterness, quite rounded, medium palate. Overall good Pale Lager style.

CanCrusher (603) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle 0,40L. Clear, golden colour with lively visible carbonation and average big, frothy, white head. Citrusy - lemon aroma with some yeast and fruits in the background. Taste starts slightly acidic and turns to light bitter fast. Watery beer with light to medium body and soft carbonation. Nothing "classy" here, just ordinary lager...

Clear golden beer, tiny head that goes away fast. Some hops in aroma. Flavor is malt, spicy hops. Not bad.

MarkoNm (449) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 14, 2014
Pours a clean golden color, topped with a very generous white frothy head. Solid retention. Lots of bubbles in there. A mild malty aroma, some dust, grains and a bit more grass. A bit unpleasant cardboard smell too. The taste starts slightly sweet. Balance in the body and little bitterness in the finish. Not the best one, but still good.

Bamsen78 (2981) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy whit head leaving lace patterns on the glass. Clear aroma of hops and yeast, with malty notes. Bitter, hoppy aroma, enhanced by some kind of spice. Bitter, slightly metallic aftertaste. Drinkable but nothing special. Still, a reasonable Pale Lager.
