2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
New bomber at the local shop. Normally I wouldn’t buy any more Euro beers from this place since they all seem to be very old, but this was a new item and it had a date stamp reassuring me that all was well. Although my numbers seem mediocre to low this was a very enjoyable lager. Aroma of plain cereal that is lightly sweetened with some grassy hops in the nose. Crystal clear gold color, the pour produced a fluffy white head that blanketed the glass leaving tons of lacing. Soft and light to the palate, the aftertaste is too sweet. Drinks easy and has a cream ale effect. Grainy and grassy with some mild hop flavors. Apples are evident as well in small doses. Pleasant $3 bomber, simple but it works.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden colored with etiolated foam head. Decent, crisp lager grainy malt and German hops in aroma. Crisp flavor with pleasant malt in the background. Light cereal graininess. Dry mildly grain tannic sour finish. Not my style, but not bad for the style.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is a little skunky with light grass and malt. Pours gold with a decent head and lots of bubbes. Flavor is also a little skunky sweet with some grassy hops and a crisp finish. It was nice on the deck after being out in the heat.

Aroma – Skunky aroma right off with a very very light malt nose.

Flavor – A lager with very little life lef tin it. Had a skunky flavor and just very light.
Palate – Ok Mouthfeel, Good texture with a skunk dry finish.
Overall – Not one of the better beers for the year. I will hope one day to try this fresh over in the land it was brewed.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank on Elizabeth’s birthday--Poured a light hazy golden body with a fluffy white head. Nutty, creamy, cereal nose. Very creamy on the tongue. Favorable subtle smooth finish, but pretty lame overall as for extremeness. Word.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle green, 660 ml
Appearance: Head is rocky white, head size is initially huge but systematically, quite quickly diminishing, head lacing is fair, head is mostly diminishing. Body is golden even amber, not perfectly transparent and clear and sparkling very gentle.
Aroma: Hoppy, a bit skunky (but only hints due to green bottle), chalky, mineral nose but weak, malts in aroma are not much preceptable, plain, strait rather poor, typical boring aroma, nothing extraordinary, a hint of old grease, no alcohol hints.
Flavour: Front is sweet and wattery, like water with sugar, than you can feel again sweetness on palate that becomes stronger and made your tongue dry and sticky, it is a big mistake to add an extra sugar to the beer and call it on etiquete ’Pilsener’. Finish is moderate sweet and short. Nothing interesting, very watered hops and malts.
Palate: Body is light ot medium, texture is wattery, tongue is dry at finish in a nasty way. Carbonation on palate is almost flat, finish is a bit chalky, parched and nothing more of a taste, only negative aspects. The worst beer should follow that particular one should not be worser and the sad story is, that there are some worser one.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5l can, 4.7% at some store in Split
Poured a yellow/golden colour and a medium sized white head that went away relatively fast. Lovely, but faint pure honey aroma (as in honey, not the honey beer aroma). The taste is... missing. Whooo. Some nice malty sweetness and fruitiness and nothing else. Watery. Maaaybe some hops show up (aftertaste mainly), but still... Good for swilling I guess as it’s not offensive, smooth, and keeps a low profile, but a good beer, no. Still, it’s quite good for a cheap beer whose main marketing point is, according to the big letters on the frot of the can, that it’s pasteurized. As it warmed it actually got better... The flavours in it are quite nice and complement each other rather well, but they really shoud’ve been more pronounced.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 0,50L (ABV 4,7%).
Creamy and adherent head, discreet persistence. Golden yellow color, limpid and light fizzy. Simple and herbaceous scent with bitterish and malty notes on the end. Pleasantly prickly taste with light alcoholic tone. Cereal and malty notes with rumors of straw on the end. Modest and watery bitter final. There’s something to save.
