This is great beer I drink very gladly every Winter and Spring. And every year it has a different etiquette, last two years was really ugly, but the beer was same, great as always.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A special Croatian winter beer in a 0.5 l bottle. It has a different label each year, and this year it was designed by a young Croatian painter Mladen Donadini. It pours a white head that fades quickly. Pale golden color, carbonated. A hoppy aroma with some flower notes. Flavor is lightly bitter, hoppy, with almost no aftertaste at all. Watery palate. Although this beer is a bit better than an average European lager, it is still not as good as most people regard it.

03/01/2011 - 50cl bottle @ home (2011-3) Thnx to Josip and Una for the bottle!
Clear dark yellow to light orange beer, creamy white head, stable and non adhesive. Aroma: mainly hops, some herbs and sweet malts, but in all pretty faint. MF: ok carbon, light body, watery texture. Taste: a little bit of hop, some malts, pretty flavourless. Aftertaste: little bit dry, practically none. Why are people rating this so high?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, 0,50l. Clear golden color with medium frothy white head and fizzy bubbles. Aroma of grassy hops, hay, yeast, malt, vanilla and light citrus note. Taste starts rich malty, followed by sour fruitiness and rounded with crisp and dry hoppiness. Medium body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Thumbs up for Zagrebačka pivovara, great Christmas present :)

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0,5 l bottle as a gift, after BBD.
Poured gold with a small lacing white head. Aroma of hay and malt, some sourish yeast. Little bit sweetish malt taste with a minimal grassy hop. No more words to waste for it.

Bottle courtesy of shrubber85, thanks! Bright golden color, scant white edge head. Aroma of straw and subtle white pepper. Taste is plain and lager-like. OK.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
.5l bottle bought in Zagreb, ’12 version. Looks like a normal yugo-lager, clear and yellow. Slightly stronger aroma and flavor, certainly a touch better than most of the beers around. Still mineral and grass, but slightly more balanced and full flavor. Reminds of the ’premium’ versions of the macros around the region. Pretty nice though, I’d seek this out more often if available.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Much better than original Ožujsko beer. It’s too bad that this beer you can only get in winter. It’s light bitter with hop taste.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at First German Ratebeer gathering (day 2) at Idar Oberstein - courtesy of Ogivlado. Sour barley malt aroma with light floral notes. Golden yellow color with small head. Honey malt and lightly bitter hay hops flavor. Light alcohol finish. Not bad but nothing to make it stand out.

Part of the first German beer tasting in Idar-Oberstein (day two). Thanks to shrubber85. 500 ml bottle, pours a normal pils look. Aroma is a sweet gum. Taste is sweet with spices. Palate is lightly bitter.
