MarkoNm (2158) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 17, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a medium sized frothy head, white color. Very mild aroma, almost non-existant. Just some grainy notes. Taste is a tad sweet at the start with mild bitterness in the finish. Very light body, not much taste to it, but just a little something to make it crisp. Not that bad for a macro. It’s drinkable, though nothing you’d be amazed by.

330 ml. can Bavaria Premium Original 0.0 % next to 500 ml. can Bavaria Premium Pilsner 5.0 %. Both purchased @ Carrefour. BBF 12-2015 (first one). BBF 03-2015 (second one). Appearance is pretty much identical. Clear heavily sparkling golden, 5.0 % one is maybe a small touch hazier, both are very light colored & crystal-clear. Artificial looking egg-white chemical head, huge at first, collapses very quickly. NA version smells quite unpleasant, huge paper, hugely chemical, insecticide, something hugely revolting oily, industrial oil, motor oil,…. 5.0 % version’s smell is seemingly almost enjoyable next to it. Light phenolic, big grain alcohol, juniper berries, industrial & phenolic smelling. 5.0 % version’s taste is watery phenolic grain alcohol, chemical, industrial, harsh, juniper berries, light floral, harsh & industrial. NA version is surprisingly not too different, obv. less phenolic & grain alcohol but it mimics the flavor profile oddly well in a strange oily kind of way, there is even an odd juniper berry, watery, chemical aftertaste, phenolically-like,… Lightly papery. The 5.0 % is a bit watery, feels like industrial strength swill diluted. Which it probably is. The NA version is very watery but slightly more enjoyable lacking the industrial punch. Neither of them are very enjoyable. If you like the alcoholic one & you are hunkering for a NA version, this one does a very decent job.

Halmgul med liten krona. Doftar svagt av malt, lite citrus. Smaken tämligen tunn, lite metallisk. Namnet antyder tysk premium Pils, men smaken är endast ngt över svensk standard-öl.

DraftDodger (886) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2015
Petrovac 8/8 2015. 33 cl can from local market (Voli). Pours clear pale yellow with diminutive white head. Subsides to thin layer of foam immediately. Aroma is nondescribt with very little malty sweetness and some sour notes. Medium carbonation. Taste is not very distinct either. A little citrus and a little malty sweetness. As exciting as a Heineken.

kajser27 (1125) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 6, 2015
Cloudy, golden-orange, moderate strong white head. Aroma is malt, fruity like banana, bread. Taste is low to medium sweet malt, grains, banana fruitcake, low to medium herbal grassy bitterness. Low to medium bodied and moderate carbonation. Don’t remember it as cloudy as this time or as fruity...maybe the keg gave up on life. Anyway, no improvement.

Teran (258) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUL 5, 2015
Ordinary lager. A type of beer possible to drink only very cold. Large white top, clear yellow colour. Strange name for Dutch lager. At least it’s without very bad aftertaste,

Tap in our hostel in Eindhoven. Aroma is grainy, light malt. Pours yellow gold with large head. Taste is as well grainy, malts. Easy drinking unless it gets warmer.

Bottle 660 ml. Kind of premium lager, some faint hops and malts in aroma. Quite drinkable.
