faroeviking (10291) - FAROE ISLANDS - AUG 27, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 One liter plastic bottle. Pours a golden colour with a small white head leaving a fair lacing. Malty, grainy and hoppy aroma, which also appears in the flavour along with some sweetness. Short bitterish finish. Not bad at all. My thanks to Ognjan.

Rune (7942) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2008
To get a sip of this one, I had to buy one litre in a plastic bottle at Konzum in Dubrovnik. However, the beer turned out to be rather drinkable and among the best during a week in Croatia. Straw-golden body under a thin, filmy layer. Pale malty aroma followed by the taste of sweet, fruity hops and a short, but nice bitter tail. Foamy in the mouth (27.08.2008).

Bottle. This is a decent pale lager that is fun to drink and easy to have another of.

Glass bottle. Wet cardboard malt aroma. Pale yellow color with small head. Lightly sweet malt flavor with hint of hops. Light but clean tasting.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2008
1L plastic screwtop from Studenac. Lemony aroma with faint ganja (hops) showing. Almost the watery citrus of a pasteurised golden ale again. Ridiculous sweet pale malt popcorniness dragging on and on, but I taste hops in this not for the first time in a budget Croatian lager. Give me this over any of that tasteless superchilled global swill any day of the week. Custard Cream biscuity afters. Almost a lime jelly/marmalade note. Not bad at all.

Yellow coloured and clear. Has a white head, lasting. Aroma is mainly malty, sweet, faint sulfur notes. Moderate sweet flavor light bitter finish. Creamy texture.
