(bottle - 500 ml) Clear copper color with a very thin white head and light carbonation. Aroma is sweet and malty with hints of caramel, apples, and some very light hops. Flavor is very light. Some mild hops and dry malts with a very mild sweetness underneath. Thin-bodied and rather watery with a very light and bitter aftertaste.

500ml bottle (Stockmann, Riga)
4+ Simple light lagery aroma, touch of huskiness, but pretty bland.
4- Very bold caramelly red, small white head.
5- Simple bready taste, with some bitter huskiness too.
3 Unexceptional palate, pleasant carbonation. Not too thin, not to sweet or heavy. Finish is fairly bitter with noble hops, a touch biting occasionally, assisted by the carbonation. A little grassy perhaps too, and definitely there’s some minerally aspects too.
9 Fairly unexciting, but a fairly full flavoured lager. Would massively benefit from being unfiltered and fresh.

heavy (2117) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 21, 2012
0.5 l bottle Cuso sent away, thanks! It poured clear red-brownish body with medium sized, slightly off white head that went down fast. Biscuit and caramel aroma. Bitter hoppy and sweet toasted malt flavor, herbs, toast and caramel with a touch of metal. Lighter to medium body with quite long and sweet finish, but not particularly good. I have expected more of this one.
