1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
1,5 litre PET, licence brewed in Croatia.
Very pale lager, thin and watery. When you find local beers in Southern Europe with German-sounding names with umlaut, it is not a sign of quality!

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 Re-rate 4/13: Can sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks kerenmk. Clear yellow. Grainy aroma with a bit of cornm, a bit of hay and faint metallic and herbal notes. Sweetish and grainy flavor with some corn and faint bitterness in the finish. Light-bodied. Non-offensive. 4/2/4/2/8=2

Scraping the bottom of the Croatian supermarket barrel now. Gave in eventually and basketed a 1.5L park bench plastic bottle in Studenac. Hop aroma detectable- sweaty, grassy, slightly herbal. Hisses and then dies. Head gone in minutes. Coniferous cardboardy noble hoppage, pale peanutty malt, maize and astringency. Pretty much how you’d expect a 14KN plastic bottle of lager to taste. Aromas of corn, cabbage and sideboard. Assumes an undrinkable headless stillness like it’s been left out in the rain all night. 250ml might be drinkable, 1500ml is not.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Poured from a can bought last night at a non-stop kiosk with a nice foamy, frothy head and some lace. Very pale yellow color. Ligtht super light aroma of baer. Watery. Mild. Not much other than the head and lace. Almost no character. What finish? Go elsewhere if possible.

Bottle - 500ml. Golden body with good carbonation and a fair white foamy head. Good hoppy/malty aroma with fresh herbal hints. Taste carries bready notes and ends with a short bitter finish. Decent Lager.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is rice, maize, malts and some slight notes of hops. Flavour is quite much the same, a rather sweet, and rather boring beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
An other lager, nothing more. Rather avarage or poor with a thin body, acidic notes. Some pale malts, some hop, watery texture. No thanks, boring.
