Bottled 500ml. -Courtesy of Marko (thanks!). Darker golden coloured, medium to big sized white head, light grainy nose. Malty, light grainy and discreet hoppy with slight watery and almost tasteless finish. Average beer.
Let me modify Marko’s last sentence: And even though I’m tempted to give it a 1 overall, I’ll be pro on this and give it what it deserves...

JEDAN JE HAJDUK IZ SPLITA!
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...
