heavy (2127) - Split, CROATIA - SEP 6, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2007 1l plastic bottle. Golden bodied with medium white frothy head, not looking like pale lager. Aroma is not intensive, but nice, no signs of plastic, justy hops and somewhat pale malt. Flavor is quite bitter, but not bad and well balanced. Moderate carbonation, slightly oily texture, a bit bitter finish. Probably the best Croatian supermarket beer.

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.

ogivlado (5661) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 13, 2006
brown plastic bottle(1000ml). -the best croatian supermarket beer, stinky yeasty acidic nose, fresh malty and slight bready and crisp aroma, watery finish, but the only and major problem with this beer could be for how long this is going to be a good beer

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.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2008
1l pet from a Croatian Konzum supermarket. Grainy sweet, like a fizzy bowl of corn flakes, well, almost. There is a soft graininess and some herbal biterness, the finish is quite crisp, but the body is more sugar than malt.

Butelka plastikowa, kupione w Konzumie w Chorwacji. Piana szybko opada, ale w smaku jest ok. Delikatne,mało goryczy.Mi pasuje.

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).
