heavy (2161) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 28, 2012
12/07 A 0.5 l bottle found at a local bar. It poured golden body with big head. Acidic hop aroma with some grain. Flavor was only a slight improvement, if any, still raw and grainy but at least not acidic. Bitterness comes more from its crudeness than from real hops, which are present though in some herbal way. Very weak honey malt, generally watery and thin in body, short, almost bland finish. So typical yet nothing to compare with from this brewery.

0,5 l green bottle from Ivana Trgovina in Split. Inch thick off-white head on a sparkling golden body. Light malts, herbs and artificial citrus esters on the nose. Medium sweet, light malts and a papery bitterness that lasts a while. Light to medium body and medium carbonation. There’s nothing here to make it stand out from any standard industrial lager, but I bet that’s not the intention either.

In related news, I’ve had this at a rock/metal pub in Split, one of the few places I’ve seen it so far. Apparently brewed for the entire region of Dalmatia, but the connection, despite no design links, with Hajduk Split, is unmistakeable. They have a sponsorship deal with Carlsberg Croatia so this was only to be expected. It’s probably a relabel, but hey, until I can prove it, it looks like this... a golden lager with a relatively big, thick white head that went away at a medium pace. A sourish herbal nose, typical of a macro lager. The taste, however, doesn’t go into that direction, bitterish, it carries very light notes of peach and elder, but there’s no real maltiness. Not undrinkable. Now... if only they had the brains to make a Belgian Wit (white being the colour of the club), it might’ve been something. Like this, an afterthought. And even though I’m tempted to give it a 20 overall, I’ll be pro on this and give it what it deserves...
