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.

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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Golden Brau from Karlovacka pivovara, Croatia. Very watery and without character. Colour is quite nice, typical for Pilsners. The best part is pleasant hoppiness but the notes of corn ruins it. Taste and smell is quite industrial. Sweet and bit bitter aftertaste, quickly diminishes.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2008 1.5 l green plastic bottle from local Mercator. Well, who would say I’ll find my first Romanian beer here. With another "smart" move (Croatian) Karlovacka pivovara started to contract brew it. ABV 4.8%, 11° extract. It poured pale yellow body with big fluffy head. Pretty fine aroma, some herbal hoppiness, mixed with weak honey and corn like malt. Well, the flavor is way too watery. Sweetish, somewhat corny, but not too much to become nasty, drinkable, but without any character, just like flavored water. Also sweetish finish, allright, pleasant, but somehow artificial and boring. Not so bad as I’ve expected, drinkable during a summer day, but still boring, definitely deserves lower rate, but aroma and appearance did their job.
