hrabren (57) - Zagreb, - DEC 25, 2010
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.

Hrc_Cro (105) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 7, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2014 Update for 2014/2015 edition. 0.5l bottle. Looks and smells like o?ujsko pivo. Aromas are stronger and taste is more bitter. Overall better than o?ujsko pivo. 2013/2014 edition was previously rated as 6/3/6/3/16, but that is not realistic.

artyom (513) - Osijek, CROATIA - FEB 26, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2014 0,5l bottle. It has golden color. Aroma is malt and hops. Taste is bitter, maybe a little bit too much. It’s not really a great beer, but it’s drinkable.

armando629 (2415) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 26, 2012
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.

Kita (1189) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 26, 2012
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 :)

.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.
