1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
0.5 l can courtesy of Marko, thanks for giving it away! Poured pale yellow body with medium sized head. Malty cornflakes aroma, a bit metallic, also in flavor. Honey and cornflakes malt, without unpleasant stale notes. Quite full in body with long cheesy sweetish finish. Good enough for a NA but far from enjoyable. Not offensive and I could drink it whole which is a big plus I guess, but that metallicity ruins it all!

Bottled, from Belgrade. Almost clear golden, rich firm head. Raisiny wort aroma. Sweet with saccharine and black currant, light bodied. Some slight bready malt, low bitterness. Tolerable, but just...

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Very dull pale golden body, big thick white head but crappy. Honeyish typical worty nose with a soggy cornflakes edge and some potato. Honeyish taste, worty, quite metallic. Relatively full but hardly the best n/a around (though, admittedly, there’s pretty much no competition in Serbia). StarBev, you should’ve copied your Croatian brewery in some other way, like with a strong dark lager or a wheat lager loaded with coriander even.

like ’as’ I was happy to see this new beer advertised until i realized it was NA. But overall not too terrible, sour-sweet malty and oddly fruity. maple and corn. not worst non-alc i’ve had, actually decent, but is that really saying much?

Great...instead of finally introducing something that isn’t a pale lager of some sorts to the Serbian beer market, the biggest macro - brewer comes out with a non - alcoholic beer. Usual low alcohol features are present - foul vegetable and grain aromas, sweetish butterscotch overall taste, watery palate, and a nasty aftertaste, of course. But the worst thing is that it’s actually not that unpleasant as most NA beers are...
