2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
<b>Can, 500 ml</b>
<b>Appearance: </b>Pours clear golden body colour with moderate saturation and carbonation. Head is white, rocky, big grainy, slightly bubbly,gentle shade of lacing, initially head is big, later on slowly decreases to small with a nice quite impressive look and lacing.
<b>Aroma: </b>First of all initially strong aroma of an egg, really, maybe not negative or repulsive but egg, fresh egg indeed with majo, later on some salty, kind of sharp, dry hoppy touch slightly dull and gentle alcohol with malty background.
<b>Flavour: </b>Front is quite nice, balanced and refreshing with not overloaded sweetness than comes slight harshness and gentle alcohol spicyness with balancing gentle saltyness on palate, there is gentle lemony - grassy hoppyness. Aftertaste is gently hoppy, gently mineral and all in all kind of flat. Nice malty - barley aspect being quite pure and clear.
<b>Palate: </b>Body is medium, texture is dry, alcoholic warmth on palate, carbonation on palate is moderate, finish feel is moderately alcoholic and dry with gentle barley accents.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep golden. A sweetish aroma with some yeast. A sweet sweet beer, I found it very easy to drink. Kind of dangerous at 7.9% ABV. Can taste the alcohol but still very palatable. Not very complex, maybe some hop, quite malty, mainly sweet though.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle at Gradska Kavana, old town Dubrovnik. Crystal clear, dark golden body. Decent, creamy-white head leaving lacing on the glass. Poor in aroma, except for some smell of hard water and alcohol. Sweet figs in flavour run over by harsh metallic alcohol. Medium bodied. Disappointing (25.08.2008).

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours with a clear golden orange hue with a mostly diminshing white head. A lot of grain in the aroma mixed with some yeast, and alcohol.
Initial flavor is very sweet! - sweeter than i taste in some desserts and the beer goes down with a bitter-alcohol like after taste that lingers in the mouth for a very long time.
Oily mouthefeel and hard to drink because it is so sweet!
