Body medium to full. Soft carbonation. Hazy liquid, bright yellow to orange color. White fluffy foam. Medium bitterness. Drinkable. Great beer for every day.

veceo (229) - CROATIA - APR 14, 2014
Beautiful cloudy amber color, big white head. Some lacing on the side. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Aroma is malts, grassy hops, unidentified fruitiness. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with very pleasant bitter aftertaste. One of the best Croatian beers.

CanCrusher (510) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - AUG 9, 2013
0,50L on tap at brewpub in Crikvenica. Hazy golden colour, with long lasting, medium, creamy white head. It leaves some lacing. Malty aroma, with more than average grassy hops notes. Taste is moderate bitter, but it leaves sweet mouthfeel after a while. And this is what I don’t like at lagers. But it’s decent beer anyway.

gorkogrlo (95) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 7, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 Draught at brewpub. Middle head, with some lacing. Colour gold, yellow. Pretty hazy. Aroma some sweet, yeast, grassy hops. Flavour on sweet side, with grassy hops, malty, peach, bread. Light, probably around 4% alc. Some hops in aftertaste. Overall: good beer. For my taste, best pale lager in Croatia.

armando629 (2381) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 24, 2012
Draught at the brewpub, directly from the tank.
Opalescent near clear golden appearance with a medium white head. Balanced aroma with sourish yeast and malt, moderated herbal hop. Medium bodied easy drinkable lager with light malt, sourish yeast and herbal hop in the finish.

heavy (2075) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 5, 2008
29/07 0.5 l draught at the brewpub. Had somewhat murky golden body with medium sized head. Nice unpasteurized hoppy aroma, grassy and dusty with some subtle malt as well, quite nice. Flavor was bitter with sour hop notes, quite dry with some malty notes rounding the flavor. Pretty full bodied, but still a bit disappointing although nice. Finish is very long and for my taste too dry, which ruins a beer a bit. Tastes exactly like German style pilsener. Nice beer, better than many craft beers, but still not something that could knock me down.

Marko (3766) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 23, 2008
Sampled from a take away plastic bottle, so it might not be in peak condition and I’ll try to get it at the brewpub as soon as possible. A huge thanks to ogivlado for sharing this with me.
Poured a murky darker gold with a medium-big white head that collapsed quite quickly. And loudly. The nose was quite interesting, and the beer showed that it isn’t your run of the mill lager you can find at every brewpub in the area. The dusty hops make a mark, but there’s a good malt presence too, ending up somewhere between rice crispies and croquant. The mouthfeel is superb, "silky" is putting it mildy. A nice, strong dusty hoppy presence mingling with some maltiness (wood, rice crispies, croquant), ending in a long, strong for a lager hoppy aftertaste. Somewhat refreshing. I’m overrating this a bit (taking into consideration that it wasn’t fresh) and I really want to try this fresh now...

omhper (18939) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2005
Sampled from take away PET bottle. Cloudy dark golden, rich but brief head. There is buttery malt in the aroma, but also some peachy acidity, probably from not being in top shape. The malt profile is excellent. Soft, buttery and rich, and it’s balanced by grassy hops leading to a finish with medium bitterness.
The shape of this beer is such that I would not normally rate it, but the current number of people that rate beer from Croatian brewpubs is not sufficient to yield a full score on Ratebeer, and this beer deserves recognition. I really would like to taste this beer fresh, and if someone is offended by my rating I will remove it.
