Iím im Istra so I finally decided to try it. Big white head, dominishes steadily, no lacing. Clear yellow body. Aroma is hay, not much. Taste is bready, crisp, it is trying to be dry, but ends with chewed bread aftertaste. I can notice some bitterness too. Could be worse, but still canít finish 0,33l.

500ml bottle in Cafť Bar Cedar, Pula, Croatia (20 kuna):
A very average lager, it wasnít overly offensive tasting & proved quite easy to drink but that may have been more down to the heat & it being my first holiday beer than anything else. Itís not one Iíd opt for again really since there are better Croatian lagers out there, although I did end up having it a couple more times on my trip.

Tap in old town doubrovnik, Croatia. Grassy malt aroma with some flowery hops. Pours clear golden colored with a thin white head with poor retention but good lacing. Starts with grassy maltiness with a light body and crisp, clean mouthfeel. Finishes smooth, crisp and clean with light floral hop flavors. Standard lager but good with seafood on a warm evening.

Keg at Dubravka, Dubrovnik. Clear golden body with a medium white head. Low carbonation. No lacing. Aroma of grass and grain. Flavour of lemony hops and sour grain. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft fizz. Bland and forgettable.

lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2015

Flavour of harsh grainy malts, cardboard, mild bitterness and mild sourness. Light bodied. Harsh carbonation. At this weather itís manageable to drink 0,5l of this.

0.2l bottle. Clear golden color with medium sized white head. High carbonation keeps foam constant and makes this the best looking lager I have ever seen. That is very good stops. Aroma of mostly malt. Taste is sweet and bitter.
