COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hercegovačko pivo je kako bi mi pivari rekli prvijenac Hercegovačke pivovare. Na tržištu se pojavilo 2007. god, 2009. je doživjelo promjenu vizualnog identiteta. Društvo je izvršilo zaštitu znaka „Hercegovačko pivo“ na nacionalnoj i međunarodnoj razini. Namijenjeno je potrošačima koji preferiraju svijetla lager piva nešto jače izražene arome gorčine. 11.8°

Clear golden with a small off white head. Malty hints in the nose with hints of grassy hops. Flavor was fairly dry with malt, cardboard and grasy hops. Finished dry and bitter.

Ungstrup (29284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2010
Bottled. A dark golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of metal, malt, and a bit of caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of metal, malt, and straw, leading to a bitter and metallic finish. Thanks Marko.

An ok warm-weather pilsner--a bit on the malty side, which I find good. Best when cold, but totally drinkable.

t’s warm golden with a white, creamy head and a perfumed aroma of soap, wet dog and rope. The flavor is sweet with notes of perfumed soap, malt, jute and rope. A weird beer.

luttonm (2222) - Belgrade, SERBIA - MAY 26, 2009
.25l bottle in Mostar, BiH. Nice golden pour with great champagne bubling. Quite dry for the style, but with a coating richness. Seems more refined than the bigger mass market lagers to be found here.

Not a bad beer, compared to most of the other brews made in Bosnia. Usually consistent, crisp and clean tasting

heavy (2133) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 10, 2008
07/06 0.5l bottle courtesy of ogivlado, thank you a lot! It had golden body with medium head. Aroma was quite weak, sweet corny maltiness. As for what I’ve heard about the beer, I expected much worser flavor. It was pretty tasteless, but still relatively pleasant with sweet malts dominating, I didn’t like the corny notes, but... Finish is short, sweet. Surely not good, even for pale lager, but not so awfully bad either.

0.5l bottle shared with heavy, courtesy of ogivlado (thanks!)
So, I finally had this one after it’s been evading the Croatian crew for nearly a year. Those few people who have actually had it before all claimed that it was crap but I was still happy to have it. Oh the joys of being a rater... Anyway, poured a nice deep golden colour with a thick, big-medium white head that went away somewhat fast. Surprisingly good. The nose wasn’t exactly offensive, but the oily and dull honey maltiness isn’t the most attractive of aromas one can find in a beer. The taste was, as everyone said, empty, but it wasn’t exactly foul... some soft grainy maltiness mingling with some weak weak milk caramel could be fizbd down there. A bit odd but not offensive. Hop? Initially, none but one can find some very weak acidic hop near the end, leading into the aftertaste. Had far worse.
